"We are real" convincingly offers weekly market atmosphere
With fresh fruits and vegetables from permaculture or freshly caught fish, Real will be even more convincing in the future through its ‘weekly market atmosphere’. Through its campaign motto "We are real", the company introduces itself to its customers in a new and self-confident manner. With a new corporate design, Real appears as a single entity both in the markets and online.
In addition to the best brands and private labels, Real now also offers products that were previously only available in appropriate restaurants or specialist shops. At the same time, new exclusive premium products are being staged in a high-quality fashion. At Real, every customer will find the right product, whether it is German roast beef or Japanese Kobe beef. "Our core competence is quality. We see ourselves as a manufacturer of good taste that also offers quality at affordable prices. Fun marketplaces conjure up a smile on the customers’ faces. And we want that too. Who can offer a sea bass from Brittany within eight hours after it being caught? Our connection to various fresh platforms gives us great advantages," said Patrick Müller-Sarmiento, CEO of Real.
Real continues to invest consistently in its pricing, in order to be able to offer the entire product range at the best possible prices in the future. This includes extensive price reductions over the coming weeks. But Real has much more to offer than just the best price. The new corporate design reflects their process of change in recent years. In addition to already converted locations, the realization of the market hall concept and the planned modernization process of other markets, online shop "real.de" was also successfully developed. The new brand image is recognizable at first glance. This is strengthened by the fact that all channels now have a uniform brand image. The well-known Real logo in red and blue has got a new color scheme and the old ‘comma and dash’ have been dropped. "The customer should know: This is Real - regardless of whether he or she is shopping in one of our supermarkets or online," said Müller-Sarmiento. "This development and the consistent intertwining of our supermarkets with the online shop will be clearly noticeable to our customers as well as our employees." As part of the new brand identity, the more than 4,000 own-brand products have been given a new high-quality design and many product recipes have been improved.
New commercial "Alles Echt" The starting signal for the new brand image has been the commercial "Alles Echt", which has been running on prime-time TV channels since November 4th. It focuses on Real’s unique selling points: variety, freshness, quality, specialties and best service. A sympathetic grandfather strolls with his grandson through a Real market and indulges in childhood memories. He tells his grandson how his father once took him to a real weekly market. Gradually, he realizes that Real offers all that as well. "We show that shopping at Real is like visiting a weekly market. And not just any market, but the top German markets. With friendly retailers, seasonal and regional offers as well as many home-made specialties, Real offers an emotional shopping experience under one roof," said Dirk Koenigsfeld, Head of Marketing at Real.
