Mission Statement Aritzia is going to expend a new store in November 2013 at Seattle downtown. Seattle downtown area is a famous shopping center. We believe we can bring an entirely new energy to Seattle Downtown. The company’s mission statement is to make its consumers feel satisfied. Aritzia is a company that sells quality women’s apparel. We strive to supply the customers with quality clothing. The image of the store resembles comfort, fashion and grace. In the company, consumers are the bosses. All employees are to be trained to be polite, smile to consumers and support them perfectly. The company also strives to supply the customers with comfortable and well fitting clothes. The stores have spectacular interior designs that offer customers a beautiful and fashionable area for shopping. Since shopping requires a spacious area, we have enlarged the area to fit all the customers. We will also include a mirror in the fitting room.

Marketing objective

Marketing Objective Increase Brand Awareness Aritzia will concentrate in the advertisement after the store is opened. A new magazine will be issued as a catalog each month. This magazine/catalog will introduce the company’s newest arrivals available at the store and company. Each magazine will be accompanied with a gift like discount coupon and will cost $3.00 each. We would like to post the posters on the nearby colleges and universities. Online shopping business is crucial in the current world, but we currently do not have online shopping service. We will work on that and create more online service such as giving customers the chance to add comments to the company’s website and garments.

Decrease regional operating expense Decreasing supply chain from the warehouse and business and investing in more training for the employees will diminish the amount of inaccuracies that are made. This will inevitably save money. Create more lines, such as accessories and shoes and corporate with another brand We currently do not carry any accessories and shoes lines in the store. We would like to corporate with other fashion band like Marc, by marc Jacobs, to create a limited line. Aritzia believes that it will increase its popularity a lot. Extend the brand into a growing demographic. Aritzia would like to expend more shops in the future in the U villages within the year that Seattle Downtown shop will be opened. We will expend more shops to more countries in the future.

Which means it is a really good place to start the high-end business, also people live in Seattle area has high education level.. B. Psychographic analysis Lifestyle: Aritzia’s primary consumers are mostly university students and high-income single females. Most people who live in Seattle Downtown study in Art Institute of Seattle, Seattle University, Seattle Pacific University and Seattle Community College or work at Downtown Seattle’s businesses such as bank of America, Pacific Place, West Lake, Nordstrom, H&M, and Tiffany & Co. among others. The students mostly go to school for 4 hours per day. They have a lot of free time since they wake up at 8:00 am to go to school and finish school at 12:00pm. Some of the students have a part time job in Nordstrom, H&M, Westlake and American apparel after school. Some of them go to 24hours gym while some go to the coffee shop to study. Moreover, some of the students like to go to Seattle Downtown to shop. The young students like to dress fashionably and do not care about the price. This is because most of the students in Art institute of Seattle, Seattle University and Seattle Pacific University are rich; their schools are private schools. They pay high tuition fees; therefore, their families have the ability of affording the fees. The cars they drive are middle-high cost cars because they are rich. Hence, the store is an excellent place for them to shop. On the weekend, they like to hang out with friends, go on dates, movies or go to a party. Therefore, they dress up pretty to go out. Therefore, Aritzia will be suitable for them to shop. Most of the high-income single females work from 8:00am to 5:00pm and like going to Starbucks, Tully’s after work to relax. Some of them like to go to the cheesecake factory, the steak house, and Wasabi to have dinner. Most of the people still like to hang out in Seattle Downtown after working. They like high quality clothing so Aritzia will be a pleasant place for them to shop.

VALS: We have chosen to the use the VAlS to find our main target market. According from the web site VALS is an:

“The main significance reason to do the VALS™ segmentation framework is identifying the primary motivation (the horizontal dimension) and resources (the vertical dimension). This segmentation result will base on the responses of the VALS questionnaire from the U.S. adult consumer from one of the eight segments. ” From the Chat we can see there are many different type motivations, those motivation can help us find right target customer for us. At first we will choice some of the motivation that fit in our business, so the people who got those behavior or motivation will be our main target customers.2

Westerly air currents from the ocean and the shielding effects of the Cascade range produce a mild and moderately moist climate, with warm winters and cool summers. Extremes in temperature are rare and of short duration, and the daily fluctuation is slight. While Seattle is known for its pronounced rainy season and frequent cloudy weather, the average annual rainfall is actually less than that of many other cities in the United States, including New York and Atlanta.” Area: 83.9 square miles (2000) Elevation: Sea level to 450 feet above sea level Average Temperatures: January, 40.8° F; August, 66.1° F; annual average, 52.4° F Average Annual Precipitation: 36.6 inches Location:
