Boise, Idaho-based Albertsons Cos. Inc. has launched Albertsons Media Collective, a retail media network designed to deliver digitally native, shopper-centric and engaging branded content to the company’s growing network of shoppers.
With retail media networks rapidly reshaping the advertising space across the consumer media sector, Albertsons Media Collective, led by Kristi Argyilan, Albertsons Cos.’ SVP of retail media, will offer partners a digital marketing platform and omnichannel solutions with the core consumer in mind.
“We are thrilled to be able to create a differentiated retail media network that will allow our customers to engage with the food and brands they love,” said Argyilan. “Albertsons Media Collective will further our goal of bringing brands and our customers together by delivering an unrivaled vendor and customer experience and truly reimagining marketing for what’s next.”
Albertson Media Collective, developed in partnership with CitrusAd and Merkle, is focused on providing opportunities to connect brands with their most loyal shoppers by opening up native display and sponsored product inventory throughout the company’s websites.
Media opportunities include advertising placements on Albertsons-owned properties such as its homepage, department, category, sub-category, email, search, app, pharmacy, as well as on Albertsons’ off-site targeted ad placements.
Brand campaigns will begin Feb. 27 and allow partners to access some of the most valuable positions across Albertsons Cos.’ websites and apps, tapping into more than 100 million shoppers across the country, including more than 2,200 store locations and 27-plus million members of the company’s Just for U loyalty program.
