Corona Campaign Wishes Consumers 'Feliz Navidad'

Crown Imports rolls out annual holiday retail promotion, TV spot

CHICAGO -- The Feliz Navidad holiday promotion from Crown Imports for its Corona Extra and Corona Light brings holiday cheer to retail accounts with an array of new support materials, including a new mass display piece to remind consumers the "spirit of the getaway" is always in season while addressing the increase in premium beer sales during the holiday period and generating more attention for Corona Extra and Corona Light.

Off-premise retailers can celebrate the holiday with modular poletopper display units, display toppers, two-sided display cards, tuck-in price cards, base wrap, pennants and promo pillars and danglers. These point-of-sale (POS) materials will help the import family stand apart from the competition on the floor and at the register, the company said.

"We encourage retailers to take full advantage of the always popular Feliz Navidad promotion this holiday season," said Kevin Kramnic, vice president of retail promotions for Crown Imports. "The holiday time period is one of the best times to keep the Corona brand family top-of-mind with consumers and encourage trade-up from domestic brands to increase profits."

In addition, the Feliz Navidad promotion will be supported with Corona's "O'Tannenpalm" TV commercial, which will hit the airwaves nationally during the holiday season. The spot will run from November 14 through December 31 on ESPN and ESPN2 (English) and Univision, Telemundo and Telefutura (Spanish).
