Suite on the Street – Discover Beauty Within on the Go

To raise awareness for Discover Beauty Within, the publication will launch its Suite on the Street weeklong initiative on April 2. The Suite is a Walgreens and Discover Beauty Within branded tour bus that will serve as a mobile beauty studio to demonstrate select products and techniques to customers and passers-by. Suite on the Street will be comprised of stops at Walgreens and Duane Reade locations throughout New York City and the tri-state area with planned stops at stores in Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami throughout the year.  

"We view our customers as A-list and our Suite on the Street gives us the ability to treat them as such," said Dixon. "Onboard guests will receive manicures, mini-makeovers and more courtesy of our generous sponsors, reinforcing our belief that women should feel like a million bucks without having to break their budgets."

The Suite on the Street Premiere Sponsors are Unilever, Pacific World, and NutriDiet; Station Sponsors include Milani, Shea Moisture, and Colgate. Each sponsor will host its own area within the Suite to provide guests with services and individual tips for at-home beauty. As an added bonus, all guests will take home a Suite on the Street Beauty Bag filled with items from various sponsors.

"Suite on the Street is product trial at its best. We are directly providing customers with a one-on-one experience with the great brands and products we carry in- store and online," said Curtin. "We expect this initiative to increase customer loyalty and drive more traffic to our beauty aisles." 

On April 3rd, the Suite on the Street will be located near the Union Square Walgreens for the launch event.  Press and consumers will be invited on board from 2:00 PM8:00 PM.  A VIP reception will be held from 5:30pm-7:30pm at The Fourth (downstairs at Botequim).

It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...
