When Hudson’s Bay opened their first department store in Amsterdam on September 5, 2017 there were several new initiatives to make the store more exciting and shoppable. The 190,000-square foot store, located in the heart of Amsterdam was a former V&D (Vroom & Dreesmann) store that was bought by HBC. 9 additional department stores will be opened shortly in the Netherlands by HBC. 20 stores are planned. There was a very warm reception on opening day.
Best Buy is benefiting from very positive consumer response to the surge of innovative technology that is bringing more, and newer, products to market. Customers are flocking to the Best Buy Apple Shop to purchase the new phones. Or, they are choosing a Samsung - in either case, it is generating new sales energy. There is also great interest in the Apple watches; they are now the largest selling watches in the world.
Lidl opened their U.S. doors on June 15. By the end of this month, 37 stores will have opened in 5 states on the Eastern Seaboard. There are stores in North Carolina (13), South Carolina (8), Virginia (14), Delaware (1), and Georgia (1). It is likely that 30 more stores might open by the end of the year in just these markets. In addition, the company has indicated that it will open units in New Jersey, Texas, Ohio and Western Pennsylvania (Dayton and Cincinnati).
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".
