The Hershey Company Partners with Winn-Dixie and Bi-Lo Holdings to Open Candy Experience Aisle
Dec 2 14
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.
