Notes: Background
After 15 years, Lidl has become a highly successful player in Sweden. However, there are still those who question their promise of high quality to low price – as well as their own brands who are unheard of in Sweden.

As a result, the Swedish market is polarized. You are either a true fan or a die-hard sceptic not willing to even enter a store. By making these opposites meet, we found a way to convince more people to try out Lidl’s offer.

With Lidl Micromarket, we provided true Lidl fans with everything needed to open up their own miniature Lidl shops at home. Food, beverages, clothing, store signs and a Spotify-soundtrack with genuine sounds from a Lidl store. In turn, the chosen fans signed up to invite their sceptical friends to come and taste the world of Lidl in a memorable and fun way – and to share the event online.

Lidl Micromarket became a highly effective campaign that turned existing customers into ambassadors and sceptics into new fans. The campaign also made the brand come alive off- and online in a way that aligned with the overall message in Sweden: “Making Sweden a Lidl better.”
