Needs Convenience

Needs Convenience, a Sobeys company, is the leading convenience store brand in Atlantic Canada, with over 180 stores covering the Atlantic Provinces. In 2011, Modern Media was contacted by managers of the Needs Convenience brand to help the design and develop its online marketing presence. Modern Media established a go-to-market digital marketing strategy that led to the creation of a brand website, a relaunch of the Facebook community, an email marketing program, and a series of online promotions.

As the Facebook community grew in popularity, Modern Media was further tasked with day to day community management and establishing the overall social media strategy.  

One of the early campaign successes was a “Free Slushy” Facebook promotion that exceeded all results expectations – and why not, who wouldn’t want a free slushy?


As the digital marketing agency for Needs Convenience, Modern Media has helped the brand define a number of digital strategies that helped grow the brand’s digital footprint.

  • Integrated Digital Marketing Strategy
  • Architecture and User Experience Planning


Modern Media has designed and developed a variety of digital marketing assets including the initial launch of the brand website, online contests, and the launch of Needs Facebook community.

  • Website Design and Development
