ASSOCIATED FOOD STORES LAUNCHES PRIVATE LABEL BRAND CONTENT MARKETING PROGRAM WITH METRO DETROIT AGENCY
SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Associated Food Stores (AFS) and Vimax Media have established a cooperative “Own Brands” content marketing program promoting Associated Retail Operations (Macey’s, Lin’s, Dan’s, Fresh Market and Dick’s Market), Brookshire Brothers, Stater Bros., Price Chopper and Roche Bros. private label branded products. The program includes custom branded recipes, images and video development designed for social and digital media and in-store marketing initiatives. These independent retailers and wholesalers understood the value of aggregating their efforts and wanted to find ways to bring efficiencies and cost savings to an important part of their businesses.
This program is a continuation of a previously established AFS and Vimax Media content subscription program consisting of aggregated weekly food-related content that is available to AFS corporate banner and independent member stores. This content is part of a growing partnership between these groups to provide omni-channel marketing solutions to both AFS wholesalers and retailers in efforts to boost customer engagement, drive in-store visits and build their brands, offering quality content at an affordable rate.
