Simon Search is made available to millions of shoppers through the Simon app and interactive directories located at Simon properties in the US. Participating retailers such as JCPenny, Banana Republic and Old Navy will also benefit from this tool through a boost in traffic to their stores as well as customer conversion. Search capability continues to be a key aspect in purchasing decisions and Simon’s real-life search tool breaks away from traditional methods of attracting customers to brick-and-mortar malls. 

“Simon Search brings new search capabilities to our retail centers, offering shoppers multiple ways to search for specific in-store merchandise,” remarked Simon’s Chief Marketing Officer Mikael Thygesen. “Simon is committed to providing shoppers with the most enjoyable shopping experience possible”, he further added.
