Save Mart launches retail media network
The grocer, which operates about 200 stores, also announced its new store websites, which it said are fully integrated among its three banners and provides advertising partners with greater opportunity to target shoppers and customers with more value and personalization.
The new website aims to improve the omnichannel experience for the grocer’s shoppers and includes capabilities such as coupon clipping, retail media placements, a loyalty/rewards experience, product browsing, weekly advertisements, run of site and run of category.
According to Insider Intelligence, digital retail media ad spending was anticipated to reach approximately $40.8 billion last year — more than three times what was spent prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Grocers large and small have been investing in their retail media offerings, which can give CPG brands greater in-store visibility and provide additional revenue for the retailer. Wakefern earlier in May deployed retail media kiosks from Freeosk in 95 stores. Kroger, meanwhile, plans to roll out digital smart screens at 500 U.S. stores following a three-year pilot program with Microsoft and Cooler Screens, P2PI reported.
