The luxury wing at the King of Prussia Mall celebrated its one-year anniversary on Friday, and it’s been a hit. Maybe it’s the year-round $7 valet parking service. Or the concierge service with complimentary coffee, sparkling or filtered water, and cookies on weekends. Or the charging stations for one’s mobile device or electric car. For Sonia Pinzon, 45, of Phoenixville, Chester County, it has to do with comfort and staying dry.
Is the party over for Center City retail? Those fancy suits in Armani Exchange at 1429 Walnut St. are no more. And don’t count on buying jeans in True Religion at 1604 Walnut. That, too, has closed. Nine West at the Shops at Liberty Place went dark last month, and some say Guess at 1520 Walnut is heading there too. And the Bellevue at 200 S. Broad St. is still looking for a replacement for Polo Ralph Lauren nearly six months after it closed.
Even the famously single Carrie Bradshaw, who had an affinity for Jimmy Choo’s shoes on the TV show Sex and the City, never saw this coming. It’s been merger mania among titans in the handbag and shoe industry all summer, as a trio of high-profile deals will alter the industry. First, Coach — known for luxury handbags and accessories — announced July 11 it was teaming up with Kate Spade, also known for luxury handbags.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
