Hellenic Rug ramping up Candice Olson program
May 22, 2007,
Brooklyn, N.Y. – The focus by Hellenic Rug Imports during the July markets, inAtlantaandLas Vegas, will be on the Candice Olson collection and the brand's new Gallery program. "The huge success of the Candice Olson rug program,” said Steve Mazarakis, Hellenic ceo, is driving a phenomenon of “destination shopping for her rugs” and her related home goods.
Olson is the star of her own cable television program, “Divine Design,” which airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on the HGTV channel.
Hellenic's national campaign will start this fall, and the company will support it with several efforts, including:
TV ads that feature Olson with the rugs and new retail Gallery;
national print campaign in two major home decor magazines;
Candice Olson Rug Gallery display fixture, a 20-arm freestanding rack for 6-by-9 and 8-by-11 pieces;
in-store Rug Gallery lifestyle signage and brochures; and
incentives for retailers.
