WHERE'S THE LOYALTY?

Harry Rosen turns 60

Upscale menswear retailer Harry Rosen will be renovating and
expanding several of its stores throughout 2014 as it celebrates
its 60th anniversary. These renovations and expansions will take
place over the next three years, which includes two new locations
at Ottawa's Rideau Centre and at Toronto's Sherway Gardens.

Nielsen knows loyalty, and it knows research.
It recently found that nearly all Canadian
shoppers participate in loyalty programs, but
their habits and attitudes around loyalty cannot be generalized in the same way.
97% - Nearly every Canadian
participates in a loyalty program,
up 3% from 2008.
