On the back of Sainsbury’s accidental public display of a private memo – telling staff to try to persuade customers to spend 50p extra in each visit – in a shop window, Lidl has created a campaign looking to save customers 50p per visit.

Created by TBWA\London, the creative has been displayed in shop windows as well as in print ads, urging staff to help its ‘lovely customers’ to save ‘as many 50ps as possible’.

The quick movement forms part of a larger £20m #LidlSurprises campaign, which looks to target Sainsbury’s and Tesco shoppers.
