Price Chopper/Market 32 Wins Top Marketer Award From National Association

Schenectady, NY - Price Chopper/Market 32 has been named the Top Marketer by the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA) for its March Frozen Food Month promotion. Presented at the NFRA convention in San Diego, Price Chopper/Market 32 was selected from six Golden Penguin Award winners, comprised of regional and national grocery chains, as the Top Marketer in the Retailer category. During Frozen Food Month, Price Chopper/Market 32 created a multi-faceted marketing and merchandising campaign focused on frozen foods called Frozen Food Frenzy. The omnichannel effort promoted both the trial of new frozen products and freezer loading of favorite items with communications in-store, in print, and online with both their ecommerce and digital loyalty platforms. The consumer response was dramatic, with frozen sales increases outpacing overall store sales by 250 basis points and digital engagement increasing substantially with site traffic up three-fold and open rates on topical emails exceeding 50%. Frozen food products suppliers also participated in the promotion and saw a cumulative sales increase of 15% on featured products. “This was a true 360-degree marketing effort made possible through the close collaboration of multiple departments at Price Chopper/Market 32. From marketing to merchandising to operations, supply chain and IT, I’m proud of the work our teammates did to bring this campaign to life for our customers. And the customers really loved it!,” said Sean Weiss, vice president of marketing, Price Chopper/Market 32. Price Chopper/Market 32 managed the campaign in conjunction with two long-standing marketing partners, tcc Global and SparkShoppe. tcc Global, which manages the loyalty platform for Price Chopper/Market 32, created the Daily SurPrize digital game with the Frozen Food Frenzy theme. Customers who registered online or via its mobile app could play once per day by wiping away digital “condensation” from a virtual freezer window. This mobile-optimized game then revealed an array of prizes that included exclusive digital coupons for discounts off frozen food items, free sweepstakes entries, AdvantEdge Rewards points and other prizes with the top prize of 50,000 AdvantEdge Rewards points ($500 value). “Congratulations to Price Chopper/Market 32 for winning the prestigious NFRA Top Marketer award over so many other great chains. Price Chopper/Market 32 developed a holistic strategy then designed and executed the plan perfectly. The award was well-deserved,” said Dan Dmochowski, President of North America for tcc Global.
