  7. 7. ObjectivesTo expand support, for our move into the Winnipeg/Manitoba market. This can be achieved in several ways:1)Extol the virtues of long term stable employment.2)IKEA will pay a large part of the infrastructure improvement at the location.3)Highlight that this was already zoned industrial, so as to assure people that no new farm land is being used for this project. 7

  10. 10. Marketing StrategyPrimary Target Market:To retain existing IKEA customers, by wowing them with this large store. Customers can be encouraged to buy more products. This can be achieved by reminding the clients that they are no longer burdened with the shipping costs, because they have their own store.Promotional campaignSomething to the effect that “Winnipeg IKEA listened to your wants”! “We have built you the largest store in Canada to serve you better”! 10
  11. 11. TacticsImplementation, this can be carried out in 3 primary ways.A) Local Celebrities can be engaged to promote our coming. This campaign should start in June to build, for the Grand opening.B) Shoppers could be secretly hired, to get in line 2 days before the doors open, in order to build the anticipation. The opening will coincide with the start of school, so incentives could be offered to post-secondary students to get them interested in the brand. 11
  12. 12. TacticsC) All of these efforts must be promoted through all media channels. It would also be a good idea to have some dedicated bloggers and tweeters starting in May/June. This would be an excellent opportunity to employ University and College students from the Public Relations and Marketing courses.IKEA would be well advised to employ, an advanced shopping stunt, at another location. This was done successfully by Target in the GTA in advance of their official Canadian debut. 12
