Aussie actor + comedian Shane Jacobson stars in IGA's new Christmas campaign via March One

Screen Shot 2018-11-05 at 6.51.23 am.jpgFollowing the successful '1400 stores, 1400 stories' series created by March One, IGA has re-engaged the storytelling specialists to deliver a Christmas campaign that focuses on the locals and the retailers powerful connection to community.

IGA's new Christmas campaign is anchored around those at the heart of its brand - local communities, supplier, charities and independent retailers - and features real shoppers and their families cast from local IGA stores.

Danielle Wilkes, general manager marketing at Metcash Food & Grocery, says the new campaign "Showcases all the occasions leading up to Christmas and the local spirit of our IGA store owners. From their support of local producers to giving back to charities."

The IGA Christmas campaign captures the values that underpin the festive season - a time for family, friends, neighbours and communities to come together. It's a spirit that IGA champions every day of the year.

Says Ben Coverdale, creative director and owner, March One: "After our recent work with IGA, we had a clear understanding that at the heart of IGA's brand are locals: local storeowners, local suppliers, local communities and local shoppers. It was a natural fit to build the campaign around those locals, using shoppers cast from the Taren Point IGA store.

The campaign will come to life on Sunday 4th November across TV, OOH, digital, social and in-store, and features Australian actor and comedian Shane Jacobson.
