Our Brief

Goldsmiths, the UK’s largest luxury high street jewellers, celebrated re-opening its Norwich showroom after extensive refurbishment to make room for a larger selection of luxury watches and jewellery.

Our brief was to create publicity prior to the launch by attracting footfall and press attendance through constructing clear messaging through media relations.

Our activity included:

  • Highlighting the showroom’s improved customer experience and wider offering of leading brands
  • Achieving regional publicity before, during and after the grand opening
  • Securing press attendance on launch day
  • Managing media relations pre and post launch
  • Increasing footfall to the new store in the first few weeks of opening.

Solution

With consumer purchasing decisions influenced by third-party endorsement, we approached influential media, inviting reviewers to experience the store first-hand.

Developing a thorough PR plan, we engaged with the media through:

  • Writing a launch press release and business story for regional media
  • Approaching our media contacts to generate a buzz around the grand opening
  • Inviting journalists and bloggers to attend the launch event
  • Arranging and briefing a professional photographer to capture the event.

Results

The re-opening of Goldsmiths’ showroom received sustained positive media attention – reaching an audience of 134,000 people.

This included key regional media including Places and Faces, EDP Norfolk Magazine, Eastern Daily Press, The Norwich Resident plus an engaging review with the UK’s leading fashion blogger and regional Grazia beauty blogger.

In the first week of re-opening, Goldsmiths experienced an increase in footfall and sales.

We are very pleased with the coverage. I have received positive feedback from the Directors so thank you for your hard work. You have been great to work with and we hope to have the opportunity to work together again.
