Public Relations for Consumer/Retail
Epoch 5 Public Relations connects retailers to Long Island consumers. From national and regional chains with dozens of locations to small businesses with a single location, we provide consumer public relations services to businesses of all shapes and sizes, including retailers, grocery chains, cable TV services, credit unions, banks, restaurants, fitness centers, malls and more.
We Reach the Long Island Retail Consumer
With a population of 2.8 million and a $100,000 median household income that’s twice the national average, Long Island is an attractive place to open and build a retail business. However, it can also be a challenging market, which some describe as “over-retailed.” Accurate or not, consumers on Long Island have numerous choices, making it challenging to get them to try something new and establish preferences.
At Epoch 5 Public Relations, we understand the Long Island consumer and the communities in which they shop. Most of our staff grew up here, and it’s where we choose to live. Epoch 5 is proud to have been named “Best Long Island Public Relations Firm” by the readers of the Long Island Press for the last seven years.
Our Experience in Action
It’s no wonder retail and consumer clients come to us to help launch a new location or expand an existing one. Over the years, we have supported many clients as they grew from a handful of locations to dozens. In fact, Epoch 5 has been involved with every manner of business launch, commemoration and event, providing publicity, event planning and support for charitable tie-ins, promotions and contests.
These include grand openings of numerous Bethpage Federal Credit Union branches; store openings for King Kullen and Wild By Nature supermarkets both on and off Long Island; the reintroduction of the iconic Fortunoff retail brand; opening the first Morton’s of Chicago Steakhouse on Long Island; and the Long Island introduction of Orangetheory Fitness, a new concept in physical training.
Some of our shopping and retail malls clients have included Walt Whitman Mall, operated by Simon Property Group, Castagna Realty Co./Americana Manhasset and Green Acres Mall, operated by Vornado Property Trust. We have also provided services to national retailers CVS/pharmacy, Costco and Southland.
