Cineplex Digital Media Reinvents The Beer Store’s Iconic Beer Wall

Beer Store Sales Assist

Toronto, ON, May 12, 2016 (TSX: CGX) – Grabbing your favourite beer has never been so easy, as today Cineplex Digital Media (“CDM”) announced that it has been selected by The Beer Store to support its mission to digitize and revamp the shopping experience. The new solution modernizes the retailer’s ‘Beer Wall,’ which has traditionally been a static display of cans and bottles representing the store’s beer offerings, and replaces it with interactive tablets, reducing clutter and streamlining operations.


An effective sales-assist tool, the Pricing Information Centres (PICs) are free standing units that will provide customers with product visuals and pricing. They will also confirm product availability and inventory levels by individual location, as well as provide information to customers on convenient self-serve tablets connected to The Beer Store’s central database.


“The Beer Store, along with its 25 brewer-owners from across Ontario, is working to enhance the customer experience in our stores, beginning with a store re-design,” said Beer Store President Ted Moroz. “We engaged Cineplex Digital Media in an effort to provide our customers with an experience that is both engaging and efficient.”


“We are honored to have been selected by The Beer Store to help transition the brand onto a digital platform,” said Nick Prigioniero, President, Cineplex Digital Media. “We’re confident that we have the tools to enhance the store’s consumer experience and encourage repeat visits.”


Enabling customers to search inventory levels for products by brand and category, many of the new units have already been successfully deployed in over 145 locations across the province.


Known for technological innovation, Cineplex Digital Media has quickly established itself in the Retail, Financial and Restaurant industries by providing strategic, custom digital merchandising solutions for its growing list of clients around the globe, which includes The Beer Store. CDM’s industry leadership stems from its expertise in the technological, creative and analytics aspects of digital signage – offering clients a full- service, end-to-end solution.
