Kathi Herrmann - Marketing Director, Mount Pleasant Towne Centre

Dream Job: Growing up on Long Island, I always loved to shop, so working behind the scenes at shopping malls across the U.S. and planning events for thousands of people has been thrilling! In 2016, I fulfilled a lifelong dream when I moved south to Mount Pleasant to work at my first open-air lifestyle center.

Offline Browsing: I believe shopping has, and always will be, about the experience. Customers still want to touch and feel a product before purchasing. Plus, how can you grab a delicious lunch at Burtons Grill or share a glass of wine with a friend at Napa Mount Pleasant if you’re sitting behind your computer?

Beyond Shopping: Towne Centre is so much more than shopping: we’ve got amazing restaurants, a cycle studio, hair salon, nail salon, 16-screen movie theatre, and now, a 92-room Hyatt Place hotel.

Making Memories: The centre is the destination for so many shared life moments: from the annual Lights Up holiday light show with your family in November, to the adoption of your first four-legged friend at our annual Pup Bowl in February, to the mother-daughter hunt for the perfect prom dress.

Summer Happenings: We launch our first SWEAT series this year—these fun, free fitness classes from lululemon and CycleBar will be held in our new park area, The Oaks. Plus, we’re hosting a Live Under the Oaks concert series this month, with acoustic musicians and songwriters every Thursday evening.
