Sobeys S!GNALS Private Brand Value

Mississauga, Ontario based Canadian grocer Sobeys recently relaunched S!GNAL, a value-tier Private Brand that includes basics like: jams and jelly, maple syrup, plastic cutlery and napkins. In late 2009, lower-price Private Brand products were transitioned from Compliments Value to the Signal brand, originally used by Sobeys in the 1990s for similar products. The switch will eventually include all 1000+ Compliments Value products.

“Signal offers our lowest prices on-shelf for everyday essentials across all of the key food, household and cleaning product lines,” said Belinda Youngs, chief marketing officer for Sobeys, in a statement.
