Commitment To Being The Customer Champion
Despite increasing commodity and supplier cost pressures across the board, exacerbated by global fluctuations brought on by the pandemic, Giant remains steadfastly committed to helping Singaporeans weather these difficult economic times by keeping the prices of essentials low and keeping them low, even in the face of inflation.
Giant is also currently supporting the nationwide distribution of grocery vouchers to families affected by the pandemic with an additional $10 voucher for customers who use their $100 vouchers at any outlet. In addition, the supermarket chain also extended its senior citizen discount programme earlier this year, committing to a 3% discount storewide for all seniors on all weekdays until 31 December 2021, so that they no longer have to rush in on certain days
Chris Bush, DFI’s Chief Executive Officer for Southeast Asia Food Business said, “We know these are tough times for everyone, and our customers are facing a myriad of growing cost concerns, from job security to rising inflation rates.”
“Therefore, as part of our ongoing commitment to being the customer champion, we continue to work very hard to drive savings where possible, leveraging our strengths as a leading retailer with our scale in global sourcing, working closely with our suppliers, maximising supply chain efficiencies with a laser focus on delivering the best value to our customers.”
“We will continue to invest in this programme beyond the end of this year into 2022 to further deliver on our customer promise of keeping prices lower, and now for even longer!”
Chris Bush added, “As we celebrate the first Anniversary of our Lower Prices That Last campaign, we have proven that these are not short-term promotions but long-term price reductions on the products that matter most to our customers. We are incredibly pleased to be able to support them for even longer than projected with this campaign because we know that it’s the little things that make a Giant difference!”
A Win With Customers
Year-on-year, Giant’s continued investment in keeping prices lower for even longer, the food retailer is fast becoming a favourite amongst Singaporeans as it closes the gap to become the best value retailer.
As value-savvy customers welcome these even lower prices for even longer, Giant is also reporting a major uptick in its in-store footfall and volume sales of up to 10%, which is testimony to positive customer acceptance and feedback that Giant has been receiving.
Giant customer, Mrs Grace Cheong said, “I know I can count on Giant for everyday great prices for my daily essentials, and I don’t have to go searching for the various promotions every weekend, which is tiring. At Giant I know I’m able to get the most of my weekly shopping budget which is really helpful as I have a very tight budget”.
Another Giant customer, Mr Adam Razak said, “Not only is it one of the best prices around, but I also get to enjoy the senior citizens discount available to us all week.
