Simon Malls Holiday Advertising
Simon Malls invites shoppers to "Discover Joy" this holiday season with a custom video running across paid digital and social media channels, in addition to streaming radio, Simon-owned digital and on-mall advertising. An influencer marketing and PR campaign will further amplify our holiday storytelling.
Our holiday video celebrates our community focused malls with a touching montage of random acts of kindness between shoppers. With its pay-it-forward story line, we feature a wide range of shoppers embracing the holiday spirit.
Simon Premium Outlets Holiday Advertising
Simon Premium Outlets will run a national television campaign, alongside a digital/social video campaign. The hero video features out talent picking out gifts for everyone on her list, including herself, and underscores the vast selection of gifts available at up to 65% off.
In addition, two sales promotions will run during the Holiday season, supported by both paid and owned media:
Get Holiday Ready: November 1-17, 25% off a single item at participating retailers

Simon Mills Holiday Advertising
There’s no better time than the Holidays to remind shoppers that Simon Mills centers are an ideal destination to get gifts for everyone on their list. A radio campaign will feature a whimsy take on "Jingle Bells" to encourage shoppers to dash through their list in a one stop kind of day while saving all the way. An animated video will be featured on social and digital to further reinforce the message.
In addition, Mills centers will run "The Nifty Gifty Pre-Sale", November 1-17, including special retail offers. The sale will be supported with paid media, direct mail, Simon owned digital and a printed holiday shopping guide.
