LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloom Ads, Inc., the full service, multi-channel media strategy and marketing agency, has won the media agency of record contract for Smart & Final Stores LLC. Bloom Ads has the proven expertise in customized marketing programs to position Smart & Final, a pioneering brand founded in California 145 years ago, as the preferred grocer for households, businesses and nonprofits in the Southwest.
The cornerstone of today's Smart & Final stores was established in 1871, and the company grew to become the combined legacy of three successful grocery businesses in early Los Angeles, ultimately named for two founders, Jim Smart and Hildane Final. There are now 248 Smart & Final and Smart & Final Extra! stores in California, Arizona and Nevada, and an impressive growth plan underway.
Smart & Final was recently named "West Retailer of the Year" by the Shelby Report. Known for many years as "the smaller, faster, warehouse store," where chefs, culinary professionals and other businesses could buy large quantities at warehouse prices, Smart & Final has broadened its offerings over the years through its Smart & Final Extra! banner. These locations include enhanced variety and smaller, convenient packages along with the low prices of a discount broker, making them ideal for family shopping while still providing thousands of club-size items.
"As a fellow Los Angeles-based company, we look forward to this partnership with Bloom Ads to elevate and continue to position the Smart & Final brand as a quality, value-oriented and convenient offering for households and businesses alike," said Eleanor Hong, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President, Smart & Final Stores LLC.
"The Bloom Ads team is delighted to be working with Smart & Final Stores LLC, a true California 'heritage' brand. The company's rich history and reputation for quality give us wonderful tools to weave the brand story and customer message into our media plans," said Kathe Bloom, President and CEO, Bloom Ads. "Our agreement with Smart & Final adds to a year of terrific growth for our company, and to a roster of clients of which we are extremely proud."
