Brands Proudly Support Walgreens' Red Nose Day
Walgreens secured a plethora of “Proud Supporters” for its annual Red Nose Day campaign, which culminates with the May 23 Red Nose Day primetime TV program on NBC.
Thirty-seven brands are named as participants on a list viewable on the walgreens.com Red Nose Day landing page.
In stores, many of the brands’ products are stocked in a dedicated in-line section located in the seasonal aisle of most stores. Furthermore, store employees are wearing Red Nose Day T-shirts that call out the brands.
Among the brand-specific activity happening in stores:
- Edgewell Personal Care secured a Red Nose Day-themed endcap promoting its Schick Skintimate razors and communicating a Balance Rewards offer of 5,000 points with purchase of $20 in eligible items.
- Walgreens dedicated an endcap to promote a “buy one, get one half off” deal on Edgewell’s Banana Boat and Hawaiian Tropic suncare SKUs from April 21 through June 29.
- The retailer dedicated another endcap to promote a “buy one, get one half off” deal on Johnson & Johnson’s Neutrogena, Band-Aid and Neosporin products with shelf blockers communicating the manufacturer’s “Get ready for fun in the sun” campaign.
- Walgreens identified Berkshire Hathaway’s Duracell as a supporter on floorstands stocking a variety of battery-powered products in the seasonal aisle.
Further activity calling out the brands included circular features and co-op FSIs.
The fifth iteration of Walgreens’ annual Red Nose Day campaign this year offers some twists, most notably the introduction of five different character noses that are being sold for $2.
