The Big Hello is put in place to educate new colleagues around ASDA and its associated brands/ facilities (e.g. CBY and Extra Special ).
4x CPM colleagues attended the event sampling a range of CBY & Extra Special food allowing new ASDA colleagues to try products from the brand. Colleagues also held a CBY taste test to raise awareness with the new ASDA workers. ASDA on Your Doorstep Aiming to raise awareness for the new store, communicating the fantastic range and value available!
4x colleagues went into the community with the MSU, aiming to spread the word about the new store. Colleagues distributed free loaves of bread and a leaflet whilst engaging with potential customers about what the new ASDA will have to offer! Welcome to Asda- opening week sampling On opening day our colleagues were there to welcome customers to ASDA and highlight the fantastic quality and range available!
6x colleagues supported the store launch day sampling bakery products to customers and engaging them around the in-store facilities and Chosen By You range.
Colleagues also made customers aware of the ASDA Price Guarantee - ASDA will now guarantee comparable grocery shopping is 10% cheaper, or they will give you the difference back in vouchers Rugby Bonfire Night 6x Colleagues attended the Local rugby bonfire sampling hot winter food from the Marquee. Colleagues engaged with customers around the Chosen By You range as well as informing them about what their new local ASDA has to offer!
We sampled hot fresh soup with the bakery tiger bread, along with a variety of hot CBY desserts and custard. We also sampled quiches, hot pasta bakes and sausage rolls all from the CBY range! The home team were playing at the rugby club so we were soon inundated with people who were eager to to try the chosen by you range!
Everyone loved the Scotch eggs, Savoury pastries and Bakewell tarts.
By About 5pm a large majority of the people were gone, so colleagues started to prepare for the bonfire and fireworks putting on CBY Fresh Soup, Pasta, Sausages, Garlic Bread as well as hot custard and a range of various hot deserts! The response from the local community as they came in for the fireworks was absolutely amazing
"Thank you ASDA we love the Chosen By You Range"
"Absolutely Gorgeous food"
" We are so glad ASDA has come to Ferring! Its such good quality yet so much cheaper to do your weekly shop!"
"This Chosen By You Range is the only food I ever buy"
At the end of the evening the manger of the rugby club came and thanked us so much for all that we had done and said we had done a fabulous job. Customer Comments Extra Special Christmas sampling Due to the new store opening, our aim was not only to welcome customers to ASDA but to highlight the fantastic quality and range available
2x Colleagues were in store two days for three weeks showcasing the Extra Special range from ASDA, handing out Christmas sample ideas as well as engaging with customers about the delicious Leith's recipes Customer Comments On the first day of activity colleagues went out into the community visiting local residents, small businesses, shops and into the town center of Goring . We had a wonderful reaction from the local people, they all very excited at the prospect of their new Asda.
We liaised with the store throughout the day as they were keen to know the community perception and reaction to the products we sampled which was fantastic.
Day 2 got off to a great start as the bakery were really prepared and had baked nearly 1000 pancakes for us to sample.
We promptly hit the streets of Broadwater and Rushington as these are the areas the store were keen for us to cover. Morrissons were obviously threatened by our activity as they instructed their van and trailer to follow our squad everywhere. We managed to reach places they couldn't on foot.
The general feedback from the local community was excitement and most people were really pleased that we were opening so soon. We reminded the public That ASDA are the lowest price supermarket and have been for the last 15 years.
"The Quality of the bread and pancakes from the bakery are great!"
"What a generous offering from ASDA, we cant wait for the store to open, I will save so much money on my weekly shop"
" We have needed an ASDA for so long, and from what you have been saying there is going to be a lot to offer"
"Will there be a petrol station as Ferring is in need of one!"
"ASDA sounds like it has so much to offer! The free bread from the Bakery is such a good idea to hand out before the new store opens"
A lot of people were asking about a petrol station, and if Asda were going to open one . The general consensuses amongst the community is that it is much needed. Seven out of ten people asked this question giving the same reply. Customer Comments The activity generated fantastic awareness for the Extra Special Leiths range on both weeks of the activity. People were impressed with the high quality taste and appearance. "These Extra Special mince pies look and taste like really high end products" Throughout the activity, the stall was situated in a high footfall area, which generated a significantly high engagement opportunity. "Wow fantastic! I love being able to try all these delicious samples in store! I'll need to check out the full Extra Special Leiths range in-store - it's brilliant!
"I love these all butter Christmas Trees! They look and taste great!"
"The Extra Special range is fantastic. I'm really impressed at the brilliant quality from ASDA!"

The timing of the campaign allowed us to focus on the Luxury of the Christmas Extra Special Range
the community really enjoyed and appreciated us when we got out and about both with pre and post opening awareness
We had lots to engage about as the public were so receptive to our colleagues
The public loved the luxury of the Extra Special range as well as the price and quality of the Chosen By You range
All our colleagues were local so it helped us to target the best and busiest areas
The in store sampling was a huge hit and the store thought we added a great buzz to the aisles
Although the whole campaign was a success we did find it annoying when Morrisons tried to hinder our efforts. Suggestions:
There are no further suggestions for this campaign, however it was really helpful that the store were really on board with our colleagues therefore having a strong relationship with the store will be positive for future activities
