Winn Dixie and BI-LO Supermarkets to Carry Airware Labs Innovative Sleep/Snore and Headache Products

Airware Labs Corp. announced Winn Dixie and BI-LO supermarkets will carry Airware Labs' sleep/snore and headache products in the cough/cold /allergy sections at their more than 700 store locations throughout the southeastern U.S. Airware Labs' products are marketed under the brand name of AIR and include pioneering, over-the-counter consumer products that address airborne bacteria and viruses, allergies, congestion, snoring, insomnia, nausea, headaches, and enhanced sports performance. Unlike external products such as strips, these soft, comfortable, and discreet, latex- and drug-free products fit just inside the nose, utilizing an FDA-approved medical-grade material. Nearly invisible for use anytime and anywhere, the AIR® products' microstructure enhances normal nasal airflow with every breath and is clinically proven to deliver up to 40% more oxygen. Some Airware products include 3M filtration media to stop allergens, airborne bacteria, and viruses, as well as a blend of proven, therapeutic premium oils to provide additional antimicrobial protection and symptomatic relief.

The Hershey Company Partners with Winn-Dixie and Bi-Lo Holdings to Open Candy Experience Aisle

The Hershey Company has partnered with Winn-Dixie and its parent company Bi-Lo Holdings, to open Hershey's Candy Experience aisle, replacing the traditional one at Winn-Dixie's newly renovated store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The new candy section, best described as a store within a store, has shown in testing that it can lift confection category sales for retailers by strong double digits. The candy aisle at Winn-Dixie's Baton Rouge store, located at 13002 Coursey Blvd., is now a circular set of bold displays located in the highly trafficked front of the store next to customer service and the checkout lanes. Hershey is the independent category advisor at many major US retailers and took a full category approach in designing the section. Shoppers will be enticed to shop by feature displays with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey's Kisses Chocolates shaped toppers, graphics of unwrapped candy, bright colors and convenient organization by usage occasion (candy dish, premium, movie & snack, grab & go). Winn-Dixie's Baton Rouge store has committed to using Hershey's new candy aisle design for one year. Throughout the year, Hershey will invest in in-store shopper research as well as category merchandising plans.
