Grocery Store Marketing Ideas for In-Person & Online Grocery Shoppers & Employees

If you’re a grocery store or a grocery delivery service, chances are you’re doing okay these days. In-person grocery sales remain strong as consumers continue eating in more frequently amid the health crisis, while online grocery sales have soared. Online sales went from $4 billion in March 2020 to $7.2 billion in June, and household penetration rose to 35%.

Long after COVID-19, we’re bound to remember specific moments, people, and brands that defined our experience, uplifted our spirits, or connected us as a community. And masking up to go to the grocery store, or getting groceries delivered to our doorstep using a grocery delivery service will be, for many of us, among those memories.

Now’s a great time to solidify relationships with customers new and old. Following are a few hand-picked grocery store marketing promotional items designed to help you stay top of mind among your target audience when they’re ordering groceries online or shopping with you in person:

Customized Grocery Store Bags

As a point-of-sale product offering or an unexpected gift, logo grocery bags make the perfect billboard for grocery store advertising. And for the best online grocery shopping or grocery delivery service experience for your customers, presentation is key and a branded grocery bag helps you make a top-notch, lasting impression:
