MUMBAI: Brand Factory by Future Lifestyle Fashions has announced free shopping weekend (FSW) with a tongue in cheek humour. The company tells its customers #DontShopAtFSW if they like being rewarded only with discounts. The third season of Brand Factory free shopping weekend will be held from 12 to 16 December 2018.
The last two years of free shopping weekend saw great success, with lakhs of customers queuing up outside the stores. #DontShopAtFSW campaign received over 1.2 million views on Facebook. The campaign is supported by print, TV, digital, OOH, radio along with corporate and student community tie-ups. This year, the event will be held on a scale larger than ever before with the increased store presence in Tier II and Tier III markets.
Brand Factory CMO Roch Dsouza said, “This is one of our biggest property and we wanted our communication to not only be direct but also fresh and exciting. #DontShopAtFSW is not just an attempt to break the clutter but it’s backed by solid consumer insights. We took this route for our digital campaign and both the films bring out the true customer experience when they hunt for deals online or during EOSS of full price retailers. They are as direct and convey the message spot on. We backed this idea with content and we are already witnessing some crazy response.”
