About us

We are a group of independent consultants who first started at established PR agencies. If you would try to summarise our overall experience, the final result would sum up to approximately 30 years of activity. We still like to think outside the box, however, even though we plan strategies keeping our feet firmly on the ground. We remain close to our clients because we engage only in projects that we believe in. We have our passions, and marketing and PR communication are at the top of our list.

Only long-term and multidimensional endeavours can create or change a company or a product image. Where to start? From well-knit and comprehensive communication strategy that will guide and outline all subsequent projects.

You can build up your company's reputation but it would be much better to manage it skilfully. Gaining support of the media, opinion leaders and institutions important for your business is a good start for your route to success.

The fish stinks from the head down, just like a company. Only well-informed internal client is able to understand and support all processes shaping a business and its environment.

A brand is not just a product, as it also comprises values that stand behind it. How to convince a consumer to share these values? There are as many methods as products on the market.

Business responsibility is more than a trend: it is an obligation. Well-tailored CSR programme will benefit both a company and its environment.

Education can change the market. A well-informed client is a better client, and the expert position is a good starting point for becoming a game leader.

It is worth including the new media presence within a broader communication strategy frame. Each vote is important, and interaction with a consumer or partner is a kind of opportunity that was not available several years ago.

The best crisis is the one that does not exist. Crisis communication cannot be reduced to fire-fighting, as it is mainly about preventing fire.

Companies do not decide to create a PR department for different causes. Regardless of the reason, however, we are ready to build such a division for you and manage it comprehensively.

Burlington Coat Factory

Burlington Coat Factory

History

The original Burlington Coat Factory store in Burlington, New Jersey with previous logo.

The company was founded in 1924 as "Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corporation", a wholesaler of ladies coats and outerwear. The modern company was formed in 1972 when Monroe Milstein purchased a warehouse in Burlington, New Jersey, and started selling coats and outerwear. The company started gradually adding apparel, including suits, shoes, and accessories, and presently has even branched out to include baby items and linens, all clothing at considerable discount to some of its competition. MJM Designer Shoes and Cohoes Fashions are separate stores in the Burlington Coat Factory family. In 2007, the company announced that three of the seven Cohoes stores will close, and two of the remaining Cohoes stores will be converted to Burlington Coat Factory. The fate of the other two Cohoes stores is unknown.

Business issues

Under investigation from animal welfare organization Humane Society of the United States, Burlington Coat Factory has been accused of labeling real fur products as "faux fur". The company agreed to pull the false advertisements after an undercover investigation revealed "faux fur" as actually made from the pelts of animals killed in China. Burlington Coat Factory's coats have also been found to contain dog pelts.

Burlington Coat Factory's logo is often supplemented with the tag "Not Affiliated with Burlington Industries." When Burlington Coat Factory settled a trademark dispute with fabric maker Burlington Industries in 1981, Burlington Coat Factory agreed to say in advertisings it does to this dayhat the two companies are not affiliated, even though Burlington Industries ceased operations in 2004.

By late 2009, the "not affiliated" disclaimer had disappeared from TV commercials.

Market

Competitors to Burlington Coat Factory include T.J. Maxx, Ross Stores, and Filene's Basement. A key difference between Burlington Coat Factory and other off price stores is that Burlington Coat Factory features more of a traditional department store layout than its competitors.

In 2006, after changing ownership, the company for the first time began offering cash and credit card refunds. Prior to this policy change, the only refunds were in the form of store credit, regardless of whether the customer had a receipt.

Departments and services

A typical Burlington Coat Factory store includes menswear, sportswear, accessory, youth, and shoe departments. Most stores have two specialty departments. "Luxury Linens" sells linen and furniture items, as well as housewares and home decor items. The "Baby Depot" sells a variety of baby furniture and equipment and offers a baby registry service. Many stores also provide tailoring services.
