  • Just for a day, prices go back to the Sixties.
  • Background
    In 2011 the economic crisis is a huge problem for everybody, in Italy. 
    To face this critical situation people start to save money on their groceries.
     
    Challenge
    The first supermarket opened in Rome in 1961, now Carrefour Market, wants to celebrate its 50° anniversary with an extraordinary event. But the point is: how can we celebrate and generate activation during the crisis?
     
    Solution
    Engage consumers with an unexpected promotional idea: go back to the Sixties, go back to the years of 
    economic boom.
     
    Idea
    Just for a day, prices go back to 1961. And we go back from the Euro to the old Italian Lira: the Carrefour Market sells some products with the same price and currency as they had in the Sixties.
