Private Brand: The Star of the Show At SPAR

This commercial from the retailer SPAR features Private Brand in a traditional price point grocery commercial.

SPAR is the world’s largest food retailer, with approximately 14,000 stores in 35 countries worldwide. SPAR operates as a co-operative, with owners grouping together to get bulk discounts from suppliers/wholesalers. It has its headquarters in Amsterdam.

There is nothing particularly new here but it is nice to know that the idea of message frequency is alive and well.
