Food Lion “Roaring In The Holidays”

Food LIon Sings WebpageSalisbury, NC based grocer Food Lion is celebrating the Holidays this year with a special Private Brand twist on. This year they have introduced ten holiday classic songs in a Private Brand online album “Roaring In the Holidays” recorded by their dry witted Lion mascot on their own label Lion Records.

The Lion sings:

  • Jingle Bells
  • Deck the Halls
  • We Wish You a Merry Christmas
  • Toyland
  • Here We Come A-Caroling
  • The Twelve Days of Christmas
  • The Dreidel Song
  • Up On The Housetop
  • Twas the Night Before Christmas
  • Auld Lang Syne

Customers may also send the songs to friends and family as an e-card.

This is the kind of promotion that creates original private brand product that clearly delivers on the retailers brand and thinks outside of the copycat packaged goods cliché.

Nice Work!

Merry Christmas.
