As 2021 comes to an end, there has been nothing but success stories for The Alkaline Water Company—from advertising on Times Square to meeting sales goals earlier than intended. Read on to learn more.

Alkaline88® and Shaq Take on Times Square

From Thanksgiving, 2021 to December 31, 2022, The Alkaline Water Company Inc. is advertising in New York City’s Times Square. The advertisements take up 14 stories of digital billboard space on the corner of West 64th Street and 7th Ave. They have three 15-second spots each and every hour for the duration of the contract. Advertisements will highlight the full line of Deliciously Smooth™ Alkaline88® products. Thanks to the nascent partnership with Ohi, New Yorkers can get Alkaline88® delivered to their door in as little as two hours.

“Gaining market share in the New York metro area and throughout the Northeast should add significant revenue growth for the company,” said Ricky Wright, President and CEO of The Alkaline Water Company. “We’ve positioned ourselves well to take advantage of the increased brand awareness we’re about to experience in NYC and throughout the Northeast.” (See the Company’s disclaimer on these forward-looking statements HERE)

On November 11, 2021, the Company announced its partnership with iDEAL Hospitality Partners Group.

Thousands of convenience stores around the US now have the hallmark of Deliciously Smooth™ water—Alkaline88®—and sales have seen unprecedented growth. For instance, sales through Hensely were 578% of what the Company forecasted for Q2 of fiscal 2022. You can find Alkaline88® at stores including:

“We’re very pleased with this early DSD success, which has played a huge role in increasing our presence, brand velocity, and overall sales in the convenience store channel,” said Ricky Wright, President and CEO of The Alkaline Water Company. “The power of a DSD network means that Alkaline88® can now be found in premium c-store chains and independent stores throughout these regions.” (See the Company’s disclaimer on these forward-looking statements HERE)
