Store Wars goes mobile

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

 

The war to win your hard earned pounds has taken to the roads of Montgomeryshire.
 
Morrisons launched its marketing offensive this week with a kickback voucher scheme for Newtown and Welshpool shoppers to counter the opening of Tesco’s new £37 million Welshpool store.
 
But, following a luke warm response to its newspaper advertising, it has decided to hit the road and has rented a mobile advertising lorry to roam high-traffic areas pushing its offer five-week offer.
 
But Tesco has sent a clear message that ‘anything you can do, I can do better’ by hiring TWO of the same types of mobile advertising vehicles to cart its promotional messages around the area.
 
All vehicles have been seen parked in lay-bys on the Welshpool-Newtown road as well as cruising the town centres.
 
So what’s on offer?
 
Tesco:
 
Like when Newtown opened, it has launched its bid to entice Welshpool shoppers with a token a week for four weeks that offers £8 off any bill over £40.
 
Meanwhile...
 
Morrisons:
 
It has launched a scheme allowing shoppers to collect an itemised receipt a week for five separate weeks (for £40 or more) which can be exchanged at the end for a £25 voucher.
