Tesco Launches Its Marketplace with Third-Party Products 

Tesco has recently introduced an online marketplace where customers can now purchase a wide range of products from various brands while shopping for groceries. Tesco’s objective is to transform ‘Tesco.com’ into a one-stop shop for all customer needs. The online marketplace launched on June 4, 2024, and already offers 9,000 products across different categories, such as DIY, homeware, toys, and pet care. More products are expected to be added in the upcoming months as the marketplace expands, and items from third-party sellers will be directly fulfilled by the supplier.

Dollar General Partners Up with Criteo  

Dollar General Media Network has partnered with Criteo to enhance its onsite sponsored ad offerings, giving brands access to premium inventory. This partnership allows Dollar General to integrate first-party data, in-store sales data, and shopper signals into the DSP to target its rural shopper base.  
The partnership aims to improve ad formats and support Dollar General’s significant in-store and online traffic. Dollar General Media Network’s expanded offerings include partnerships with LiveRamp, The Trade Desk, Google Ad Manager, The Goodway Group, and Meta, while Criteo’s retail media network spans 200 retailers and has continued to work to unify the retail media ecosystem across online and offline channels. 

Costco Plans to Develop an Ad Network to Utilize Its Shoppers Data 

Costco is set to launch a new advertising network that will use its customers’ purchasing history to target ads more effectively. The company’s membership program, which links purchases to individual members, will allow precise ad targeting based on purchasing behavior, similar to Amazon’s AMC lifestyle targeting.  
Despite being late to the retail media space compared to competitors like Walmart and Target, Mark Williamson, assistant VP of Retail Media at Costco believes that this ‘100th mover advantage’ gives them the opportunity to learn from others’ mistakes.
