IGA is launching two more national TVCs with a seasonal twist over Christmas inspired by real stories and continues to highlight the relationships IGA retailers have with their local customers and suppliers.
This latest work builds on the IGA TVCs launched eight weeks ago by The Core Agency. The new TVCs go live on Wednesday 20th November.
IGA is a network of 1,400 independently owned stores, whose communities help shape what goes on their shelves. Because they have a unique and genuine connection to their local communities, they can tailor their ranges to give local customers more of what they like.
This means IGA shoppers can discover unique local products, old favourites and products that they can’t source anywhere else to give their festive spread a personal twist!
IGA stores are often owned and operated by families who live and work in their communities, which means they are passionate about supporting local producers, growers and suppliers, along with giving back to their local communities wherever possible.
The TVCs continue with Shane Jacobson, recounting stories inspired by IGA customers and local suppliers. The agency worked with IGA to source genuine stories particular to the foods Aussies love at Christmas time. We see how an IGA owner’s special relationship with a local cherry grower ensures his customers get to enjoy the freshest cherries delivered to his store 24 hours from picking; and why an Italian family visiting their rellos in Australia needn’t have brought their favourite panettone with them all the way from home.
Speaking of his involvement in this new series of TV adverts over the festive season, Jacobson said: “Christmas is such a magical time of year and these new stories bring to life the incredible role IGA stores across the country play in making it just that little bit more special. At the heart of IGA are the locals – local storeowners, local communities, local suppliers and local shoppers and I am thrilled to be able to share even more of the ways that IGA retailers go over and above for their communities.”
Sydney independent, The Core Agency, is part of the creative roster for IGA. Its remit is to bring to life the unique and different things that make IGA special.
The Core Agency founder and creative partner Christian Finucane said: “Our latest stories for IGA further amplify just how markedly different IGA is compared to the big supermarkets. The things that local IGA owners do for their customers are fantastic and the festive period is a great time to share these stories.”
GM of marketing Tracy Wilson added: “IGA owners are part of their local communities, so they know what their customers want and can stock their shelves accordingly. We don’t need to make these things up and are proud to share even more real stories about what sets IGA apart.
“These new TVCs really showcase the benefits that come with shopping independent and supporting local businesses.”
