Advertising templates are designed to connect with our core target female consumer to increase consideration and store traffic. Ads contain key activation elements, while presenting stories in a very calculated and strategic manner. Adherence to the structure, type design and core elements are important to the success of the ad template.

Advertising templates are available for download and customization at http://lzbspext.la-z-boy.com/FGMarketing/default.aspx. Ads can be located following this path: FG Marketing Documents/Promotional Print Materials/Monthly Promotions.

Pricing and Discounts

Discount Claims

Advertised discounts should range from 10% to 40% for sales events and up to 50% for clearance ads only. Clearance ads should not be used more than once per quarter, and advertised discounts on La-Z-Boy products may not exceed 50%.

Price Comparisons

Avoid listing prices that are “hard to believe,” as they diminish the consumer's value perception of the product and the store. You are responsible for being aware of your state's regulations regarding the legal ramifications in using reference pricing.

“Starting From” Pricing

When “starting from” pricing is referenced, and the product featured is sold at a higher price point, always include “as shown” pricing.
