A leading fresh berries brand sought to increase brand equity and influence purchase of its brand of fresh berries among Costco members.
PRN’s Costco TV Network is deployed in more than 490 locations nationwide and reaches 38 million+ monthly commercial viewers (18+). With front-of-warehouse placement in the Electronics/TV department, the network plays a customized 30-minute program loop across 30+ screens, featuring a blend of high definition and 4K content, retailer messaging and relevant advertising.
The fresh berries brand campaign ran from July 2 to 22, 2018 in all Costco locations installed with the TV network (490+). The campaign featured a 15-second supplied spot which ran 6x per hour. Key copy points included:
