Market Pantry Takes Over Target Flyer

This week Minneapolis based big-box Target once again features its Private Brands front and center in its weekly flyer. This week the decidedly utilitarian NBE brand Market Pantry takes over the front page with eight items reinforcing the brands promise of “Big Brand Taste, Unbeatable Prices.” This is a nice use of a Private Brand to build on the Target retail brand proposition and reinforce the price positioning.

Page two follows with Targets now familiar “Why Pay More” compare and save pitting five Up&Up against a comparable manufacturer brand product at a substantial savings.

The flyer also includes the Private Brands Merona and Archer Farms as well as exclusive/licensed brands D-signed, Shaun White.
