Probably the Best Chinese New Year Shopping Experience

Carlsberg foots the bill for your grocery shopping at AEON and AEON BiG

Shah Alam, 3 January, 2017 – We know you’ve been anticipating Chinese New Year. Excited? What about the mayhem before? Last-minute grocery shopping in crowded hypermarkets? Carlsberg is here to give you probably the best CNY shopping experience! Imagine skipping those long queues with your very own shopping aisle. What’s more cuckoo, Carlsberg Malaysia is giving shoppers the golden opportunity to have their shopping cart paid for at eight selected AEON and AEON BiG outlets! The catch? It’s a no brainer - shoppers who purchase above RM200 of Carlsberg Malaysia’s dynamic portfolio of brands will be able to participate in “Weather Vane Digital Spin” and stand a chance to have their CNY groceries paid for courtesy of Carlsberg, or walk home with other prizes.

See what’s in store and join the craziness of “Probably the Best CNY Shopping Experience” on 7, 8, 14 and 15 January 2017, from 12pm to 3pm at four selected AEON BiG outlets namely Subang and Kepong in Klang Valley; Falim, Ipoh, and Batu Pahat, Johor and four selected AEON outlets - Cheras Selatan, KL; Bukit Tinggi, Klang; Queensbay, Penang and Ipoh Station 18.

Juliet Yap, Marketing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia said: "Grab this golden opportunity to fill your pantry just in time for the festivities. Chinese New Year is one of the biggest festive celebration in Malaysia. Shopping for groceries especially during the festive period isn't always the most exciting thing to do. We wanted to add a little spice to the otherwise typical mundane task and bring to life the essence of our brand promise where we strive to deliver the best to our consumers. Ultimately, it’s about making the experience of purchasing our products more enjoyable for our consumers.”

The campaign nods to Carlsberg’s commitment which strives to deliver the finest quality in everything it does, and in this case, a unique and probably the best CNY shopping experience, with probably the best beer. The teaser video was released on 3 January 2017, to give consumers a glimpse of the campaign. Check it out on Carlsberg’s Facebook page.

Adding to the spirit of CNY, Carlsberg will also be running consumer promotion from 3 January to 28 February 2017 across participating restaurants, coffee shops and food courts, beer lovers who purchase three (3) big bottles of Carlsberg or Carlsberg Smooth Draught will receive a deck of playing cards and stand a chance to win attractive prizes such as Samsung Home Theatre System, Ogawa Handheld massager and many more!
