Andy Murray, Asda’s chief customer officer, said: “With the right mix of innovation, exclusive ranges and great prices, every touch-point of our campaign encourages the whole family to ‘get into the spirit’ and get involved – truly making Asda the home for all things haunted this year!”
The campaign will run through to 31 October with accompanying social media activations, a radio spot, plus PR.
