Waitrose Launches Value Campaign Featuring Essentials

English premium supermarket Waitrose is launching its biggest ever value focused campaign to reinforce its price commitments in the wake of rival Tesco’s Big Price Drop initiative.

The grocer says its 1000s of ways to great value campaign will highlight its value proposition, which includes a promise to price match Tesco on more than 1000 products and the Essentials range.

Waitrose also hopes to raise awareness that it offers more than 1000 products on sale every week and is the only supermarket to offer free delivery on all online orders to address consumers perception that it is more expensive than its rivals.

The Waitrose campaign, which launches October 6th, includes TV, print, web, a mobile display ad campaign, in-store marketing and customer communications.
