VEGAS FOR SALE
(LAS VEGAS, May 8, 2008) - VEGAS.com and Marshall Retail Group today unveil five store-within-a-store concepts in retail locations around Las Vegas. Part of a multi-year, multi-faceted deal, MRG and VEGAS.com have partnered to provide quirky and fun Las Vegas souvenirs and iconic Vegas merchandise.
The following Las Vegas shopping locations open May 8:
Each of the five Marshall Retail locations has a dedicated VEGAS Arrow section of the store with scores of VEGAS Arrow-branded merchandise and product lines, including glassware, apparel and souvenirs, with the ever-present neon sign pointing the way. All of the merchandise was selected and designed to tie into the popular imagery and feelings that people have about Vegas. Cool VEGAS items include a sexy, rhinestone-studded VEGAS arrow tank top for women; a Vegas-sized, large VEGAS shot glass; and VEGAS flip flops the leave behind the VEGAS arrow logo, so everyone knows where you've been.
"VEGAS.com's red arrow is now an iconic symbol of Vegas," said Michael C. Wilkins, president and chief executive officer of Marshall Retail Group. "Adding VEGAS Arrow merchandise at our retail locations really enhances our product mix for visitors."
All apparel items come with a tag that contains a promotional code which can be redeemed for a discount on Las Vegas travel booked through the VEGAS.com website.
"We knew there was demand for Vegas Arrow-themed merchandise when we started seeing people make their own, non-approved items," said Howard Lefkowitz, president of VEGAS.com. "Now Vegas fans can truly Vegasize their lives with a range of unique items, ranging from ballcaps that have a built-in opener so you never have to wait to pop open your beer to a Vegas air freshener that, naturally, has the scent of luck. By the way, luck smells a little different to everyone."
