Interview

eMarketer: Tell us about Bloomingdale’s recent in-store scavenger hunt.

Jonathan S. Paul: Our Snapchat Swipestakes was a brief execution over Labor Day weekend to build awareness for the fall 100% Bloomingdale’s merchandise program, when we launch 100 capsule collections [essential clothing items that don’t go out of fashion] from designers across women’s, men’s and home.
