PHOENIX, April 15 // PRNewswire // -- Phoenix-area small businesses have a new ally in the marketing and PR sector. PRstore will host a Grand Opening event on April 23 from 3-7 p.m., to celebrate the opening of its new store on Glendale Ave.
The festivities will begin with a Phoenix Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony, immediately followed by an after hours networking open house. Attendees will have the opportunity to win door prizes that include a $250 gift card, baseball tickets and free business cards.
PRstore is a full-service marketing firm that operates in retail and office locations nationwide. The new Phoenix franchise, a retail center, is located at 742 E. Glendale Ave., between Muse Apparel and Qdoba Mexican Grill.
The retail-based PRstore puts public relations and marketing services within reach for small- to medium-sized businesses. The company's offerings include logo design, web site development, direct mail, brochures, promotional products, press releases, media placement and more.
"PRstore is unique because businesses owners can get it all here - copywriting, design, web programming, printing - the whole package," said owner Wynne Angell. "We're truly a one-stop marketing shop."
The Phoenix PRstore is the newest addition to the national PRstore franchise. PRstore clients are supported by the company's DesignCentral, a Charlotte, North Carolina-based staff of designers, copywriters, promotions specialists, web designers and printing coordinators who serve as the behind-the-scenes workforce for all PRstore locations.
By centralizing their creative services, PRstore retail units can provide a quicker project turnaround and a more collaborative effort than has typically been available to small businesses.
"We envision PRstore as a hub where entrepreneurs can connect, share marketing ideas, and grow their businesses, in addition to getting high-caliber marketing services," Angell said.
Angell brings 25 years of marketing and sales management experience to PRstore. She handled regional marketing efforts for Life Care Services, a retirement community development and management company, prior to becoming an entrepreneur.
"PRstore fits my passion for being a marketing mentor to small businesses perfectly," Angell said. "In times like these, when entrepreneurs need to be creative, it's nice to be a solution center for them."
