EXPERIENCE

THE TRANSFORMATION OF SHOPPING By Kate Birchler, Assistant Vice President, Tourism Marketing, Macerich Shopping Centers & Fashion Outlets

F

rom cooking classes to talkedabout restaurants, upscale gyms to amenity-filled movie theaters, the traditional shopping experience is no longer traditional. Forget just a single transaction within a store, shopping centers have transformed into energetic hotspots and vibrant town squares, attracting a diverse group of people to create and share moments and memories with one another. The future of shopping is evolving to offer visitors the personalized experiences and entertainment they desire. Shopping centers are also providing a multidimensional, interactive experience with brands once found only online. Warby Parker, Indochino, Monica + Andy and more – all have expanded to provide in-person, one-on-one service to customers while delivering the ease and convenience for which these brands are known. Experience Macerich Shopping Centers and Fashion Outlets’ one-of-a-kind properties:

SCOTTSDALE FASHION SQUARE

browsing the center’s two million square feet of shopping, grab a drink and recline in Scottsdale Fashion Square’s brand new, state-of-the-art movie theater. With a full menu of food and drink options, you can cozy up in your own personal arm chair to watch the latest blockbuster film.
