The awards honour the most innovative and successful retail marketing campaigns from the previous year.</p><p>"We are proud to design and deliver standout marketing programs that are a success for Morguard, our tenants and our visitors while maximizing our return on investment," said Ed Lincz, Vice President, Retail Operations at Morguard. "We are delighted to be recognized by ICSC, the premier retail industry association in Canada, for our innovation and leadership in retail marketing."</p><p>Morguard's country-wide Shop150.ca campaign was honoured Marketing – Corporate/Company category. The innovative campaign, which took place in each of Morguard's 21 enclosed shopping centres across Canada, celebrated the country's milestone birthday by offering visitors a chance to win a Dream Shopping Spree at the Morguard shopping centre of the winner's choice by filling out a fun and engaging quiz on their love of shopping. A dedicated microsite was created to host the contest, and a coordinated onsite and online campaign was implemented to create awareness and promote social activity. </p><p>The contest was a resounding success, generating over 10,000 entries from eager shoppers across the country. Morguard's entire Canadian retail portfolio saw dramatically increased social media outreach and activity while generating goodwill and positive attention in their local communities.</p><p>Morguard's The Centre in Saskatoon was recognized in the Marketing – Single Centre category for its innovative Black Friday Black Box program. The Centre's limited-edition sample boxes filled with donated centre retailer products were available to customers who presented purchase receipts of $100 and made a $25 donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters Saskatoon. </p><p>In true Black Friday fashion, the boxes sold out within an hour and a half of program launch.

Its more than 70,000 members in over 100 countries include shopping center owners, developers, managers, investors, retailers, brokers, academics, and public officials. The shopping center industry is essential to economic development and opportunity. The industry is a significant job creator, driver of GDP, and critical revenue source for the communities it serves through the generation of sales taxes and the payment of property taxes. These taxes fund important municipal services like firefighters, police officers, school services, and infrastructure like roadways and parks. Shopping centers aren't only fiscal engines however; they are integral to the social fabric of their communities by providing a central place to congregate with friends and family, discuss community matters, and participate in and encourage philanthropic endeavors.

The opening comes after Morguard's extensive 14 month redevelopment at Rainbow Square.</p><p>"Publix is something that the community has been eagerly anticipating, so we're delighted that the necessary work has been completed and the grand opening has arrived," said Joshua Nolan, Regional Director at Morguard. "Our redevelopment at Rainbow Square has created a new local grocery option for the community and a popular retailer that will bring increased foot traffic to the center."<br></p><p>Publix will serve as a cornerstone for Rainbow Square, occupying 45,600 square feet and including a pharmacy, bakery and liquor store. The addition of the dominant grocer will also bring approximately 110 jobs to the area. Hundreds of excited community members lined up in the pre-dawn hours to celebrate the grand opening.</p><p>Morguard invested approximately $6.5 million in the redevelopment. The extensive renovation involved demolition of the existing space, which had been vacant since 2015. Along with redevelopment of the interior, Morguard also performed an extensive renovation of the parking lot, exterior façade and landscaping, including the planting of over 250 new trees and shrubs.</p><p>"It was important for us to retain the community look and feel at Rainbow Square while ensuring we met the needs of Publix and local shoppers," said John Walsh, Director of Development and Construction at Morguard. "The City of Dunnellon was a great partner throughout the project to secure the required variances and permits to complete the redevelopment and related work." </p><p>Rainbow Square, located at 11352 N. Williams Street, is a 124,000 square foot community shopping center in the heart of the Dunnellon retail area. Along with the new Publix, the center includes a Tractor Supply Co. ("TSC"), Beall's Outlet and Dollar Tree.</p><p> <img src="/PublishingImages/News_Knowledge/Posts/Rainbow-Square-Publix-Opening.jpg" alt="" /> </p>https://www.morguard.com/news-knowledge/posts/morguard-publix-opens-in-rainbow-square
