Hildreds embraces social media

THE Hildreds Shopping Centre in Skegness has embraced the social media age by launching its very own Facebook page - and its ‘likes’ have already passed an early milestone.

The centre launched the page recently to keep shoppers and visitors to the town up-to-date with its events and to use it as a place to display photos of its various seasonal displays.

After reaching its first milestone of 200 ‘likes’ the centre is now determined to get even more.

“More and more people are using social networking to find out information about their local area and beyond,” said the Hildreds’ deputy manager, Steve Andrews.

“It is a another platform in which they can keep up to date, and it’s also great for those who come to the town regularly for holidays and short breaks.

“They can find out what’s going on at the centre simply by checking their Facebook pages,” he added.

Anyone can access the Hildreds’ Facebook page by visiting www.hildredsshoppingcentre.co.uk and clicking on the Facebook tab. Alternatively search for Hildreds Centre on the social networking site.

The shopping centre is also using Twitter to post regular updates and links via @HildredsScSkeg.

The Hildreds is working closely with its tenants to post store updates on its social media pages.
