PARAGON Shopping Centre has clinched two awards in Shopping Centre Scorecard, an annual national industry rating scheme which recognises well-run malls in Singapore.
Paragon, which is fully owned by Singapore Press Holdings Ltd (SPH), emerged tops in two of the three categories - best efforts in advertising & promotions and tenant relationships.
The results were based on votes by retailers. The contest is organised by the Singapore Retailers Association.
This is the second year the mall has won the Shopping Centre Scorecard. Last year, it won for best efforts in maintaining its premises, the third category.
Paragon, which now enjoys full occupancy, is positioned as an upscale fashion and accessories mall. The mall is home to many international fashion designer names such as Prada, Gucci, Burberry and Versace.
‘Good mall management is a synergy of getting the right tenant mix and increasing shopper traffic, apart from handling ongoing building maintenance,’ said Linda Kwan, the mall’s general manager . ‘Cultivating a good working relationship with our tenants is a big factor in our success. Coupled with strong brand building and proactive A&P programmes, our efforts in mall management would further boost shopper traffic and sales for the mutual benefit of all.’
