FreshCo - Promotions
FreshCo aims to offer customers fresh, high-quality food at discount prices in a modern shopping setting. FreshCo aims to accomplish the look of a "well-appointed fresh-format store" or "market feel", instead of a discounter with a "price-impact banner boasting the cheapest prices in the market", by making the store aisles more spacious. FreshCo offers a diverse selection of frozen and chilled ethnic products to reflect the community in which they operate. FreshCo also has a "Fresh Hall" product aisle featuring fresh products, daily baked goods made in community bakeries, and a variety of Ontario cheeses and meats. A feature aisle provides with savings opportunities for the customers. Until summer 2019, FreshCo used the slogan, "Fresher, Cheaper." If customers are not satisfied with their product, they are eligible for a refund. In late 2019, FreshCo unveiled a new motto, "Lowering Food Prices," claiming to be the cheapest store. They also unveiled the "Double fresh guarantee," offering a refund and exchange if you are not satisfied with your purchase.
