Wine Fridge

Program Description

In Promotional Turn 2, 2012 the LCBO introduced a new program offering display space in the wine fridges of larger volume stores (A & B stores). Space was allotted primarily to white, rose and sparkling wines and included a selection of Vintages Essentials Collection and Continuous products. Participation in the program guaranteed space and premium shelf positioning. Stores that did not carry the participating skus were required to bring in inventory for display in the wine fridge for the duration of the program.

We are pleased to report that the program is delivering amazing results. The average sales lift has been 25% and the demand for more opportunities to participate is growing. For these reasons, we are expanding the program.

Flight A comprises premium stores with regular fixtures with PPG groups Upspend Mainstream, Premium Destination and Global Roots.
