America’s First Supermarket, King Kullen, has selected CitrusAd’s retail media platform to boost online and in-store sales for CPG suppliers.
King Kullen joins CitrusAd’s expansive eCommerce ad network, which provides one platform for brands to reach omnichannel shoppers nationally, across many retail accounts. Sponsored product ads are available in the retailer’s most visible, top positions online for desktop and mobile.
The new retail media technology is now accessible for natively-served, media inventory on King Kullen’s online shopping website, empowering brands with the ability to engage with King Kullen’s shoppers.
A recent grocery study across multiple categories demonstrated the impact CitrusAd can have on a brand’s online sales and in-store sales.
Four campaigns went live for one week only and the advertised SKUs experienced an average 97% lift in online sales plus an average 26.5% increase for in-store sales in just one week of being live.
When the campaigns were switched off, the SKUs experienced an average 53% drop in online sales from the previous advertised week online and a 24.5% decrease for in-store sales. It’s easy to see why the investment into retail media by both retailers and brands is set for continued growth in 2022.

Cullen was a great innovator, we proudly continue his legacy by bringing new, innovative technology from CitrusAd to enhance shopping experiences, improve product discovery and overall sales in a relevant manner,” said, Tracey Cullen, VP of corporate strategy and initiatives at King Kullen.
