Havas PR is one of the UK’s leading retail PR agencies and are specialists in results’ driven campaigns for multi-site retail and leisure clients.
Our clients are among the biggest brands in UK retail and our commitment is to creating integrated retail PR campaigns that work regionally as well as nationally.
With over 350 location visits last year alone we know the key to driving local engagement – and we have the results to match.
We’re proud to work with the very best brands such as Asda, Debenhams, Greggs, Hobbycraft, Pets at Home, Thomas Cook and Staples and our work is engaging and relevant. We work with our clients, as opposed to for them, as we see the key to strong retail PR success as being part of a partnership.
The key to a successful campaign is in understanding communities and being authentic,with no tokenism, as life is becoming ever more local:
- People identify most with their local area; local is key to determining one’s identity
- Most people live, work, eat, drink and shop in a ‘magic circle’ of 13 miles
- 65% of people say their local media is what binds people together in their area
- People believe what they read in their local papers and local websites and hear on local radio more than they believe national newspapers
- Locality also expressed online in groups, likes, followers – connecting people
We service our retail clients with our network of PR experts in Edinburgh, Manchester and London, meaning we have one of the most comprehensive retail PR agencies around.
Our retail expertise includes PR for store openings, re-models, anniversaries, internal engagement, media partnerships, regional sponsorship, events and crisis management.
