7‑Eleven® and local police departments to distribute free Slurpee® drink coupons to reward kids for good behavior

Local Police Departments will Receive Millions of FREE Slurpee Coupons To Reward Kids for Good Behavior

IRVING, TEXAS, 2017-Jun-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — This summer, thousands of local law enforcement officers will be dispensing well-deserved Slurpee® justice to good kids across the U.S. For the 22nd year, 7‑Eleven® is working with police and sheriff’s departments to distribute free Slurpee® drink coupons to children and youth through its popular Operation Chill® community-service program.

During 2017, 7‑Eleven will issue up to 1.33 million Slurpee coupons to almost 1,000 law enforcement agencies which, in turn, will distribute most of those during the summer months and back-to-school season.

“The Suffolk County Police Department’s partnership with 7‑Eleven’s Operation Chill®program is a unique way for our officers to engage with the youth in our county,” Suffolk County, New York, Police Commissioner Timothy D. Sini stated. “Interacting with our community’s children in positive ways is an important element of what our officers do daily. We appreciative 7‑Eleven’s commitment to providing an additional way for officers to make a positive impact and look forward to our eighth year  ‘ticketing’ young children and teens when caught doing acts of kindness.”

Big-city departments and small-town forces alike use the Slurpee coupons to enhance relationships with the young people of their cities by rewarding them for good deeds, constructive activities and acts of kindness. Appropriate “offenses” might include helping another person, deterring crime or participating in a community- or police-sponsored event. Although the reasons for being “ticketed” are varied, the end result is the same for every youngster: a free Slurpee drink and a smile for being a good kid. Each coupon can be redeemed for a small Slurpee drink at participating 7‑Eleven stores.

Begun in Philadelphia to give law enforcement officers a positive reason to interact with children and teens, Operation Chill has expanded to cities across the country. Since the program’s inception in 1995, more than 19 million Operation Chill coupons have been distributed to hundreds of law enforcement agencies across the country in areas where 7‑Eleven operates stores.

“Year after year, Operation Chill is our most popular community service program,” said Mark Stinde, vice president of asset protection for 7‑Eleven. “Kids love Slurpee drinks, and police officers love having a reason to approach kids and surprise them with a Slurpee coupon as a reward for doing something good. And we, at 7‑Eleven, love helping them make those important connections in the community.”

7‑Eleven’s proprietary Slurpee semi-frozen carbonated beverage has generational appeal with slurpers both young and old. More than a half-million Slurpee drinks are purchased each day during the summer at 7‑Eleven stores across the country. This summer’s flavors include Chrome Cotton Candy and, for Slurpee Lite, sugar-free Watermelon Lime made with all natural flavors.

9 Christmas Gift Exchange Ideas to Trim Your Holiday Spending

NEW YORK, 2016-Dec-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — Here are a few alternative Christmas gift exchange ideas from savings and consumer trends expert Jeanette Pavini for you to create a fun experience while keeping your holiday spending in check. You can find even more ways to save on our Coupon Codes page and more savvy ideas on The Good Stuff!

  1. Pick a secret Santa. This game is a classic, but by only giving one gift to a family member, you can focus more on the gift-giving experience (and picking out something extra special) rather than spending money on several gifts that may or may not hit the mark. You can even up the ante by asking family members to leave secret notes and treats for the person whose name they’ve drawn leading up to December 25. Be sure to put a dollar limit on how much each person can spend on the final gift given on the holiday!
  1. Make a coupon book for family members. I love this idea because it’s personalized and can be a lot of fun depending on how creative you get! These coupons can be for “Making Your Bed for a Week,” “Doing the Dishes for 1 Week,” or “Letting You Pick the TV Show We Watch.” Choose simple things that can make other family member’s life a little easier or a little more fun!
  1. Set gift expectations early. It’s important to set gift expectation for kids early on. Let them know that even if they have a long wish list, only a few presents will show up under the tree. You can make this into a learning exercise by having your children prioritize which gifts they really want. Have them rate each gift idea by putting stickers next to them on the list, coloring in stars, or writing out why they want this particular gift more than others. You can also help your kids choose a couple toys they already have to donate to charity. This kind act makes room for a few new ones while teaching them about giving and sharing with others.
  1. Take a family trip or staycation. Instead of spending money on everyone’s presents, use the money for an outing. It can be as simple as a local trip — you’ll even find some good deals during the week between Christmas and New Year’s while the kids are still on vacation. Even if you just travel to a nearby town or a local park, it’s the act of getting away as a family. Too stressed to plan a family trip? Check out this list of easy family staycation ideas!
  1. Let your kids do the shopping. If they’re old enough, give your kids a set amount of cash, allow them time to search for deals and coupons, and then let them shop away for gifts for family.  The cash will help them learn the value of every dollar and how to stay within a set budget, plus most kids love the thrill of shopping on their own!
  1. Give back as a family. You can sponsor a family in need by making a donation through Heifer International. As a family you can provide a gift of a cow, goat, or chickens to a struggling family from another part of the world. You may also be able to sponsor a local family through your local Salvation ArmyFamilies First, or even adopt a military family for the holidays through Soldiers’ Angels. It’s a wonderful way to feel the real meaning of the holidays and do something as a family!
  1. Trade favorite recipes. For extended family, have everyone make their favorite dish or dessert and attach hand-written recipe cards — one for every member of the family. Gather together for a family meal and swap recipe cards so everyone in the family can build their own family recipe book!
  1. Share a family photo collage. Photos are one of the least expensive and most treasured gifts, in my opinion, so why not build a family photo album together? Have each member of your family print up to 10 (or more if you like!) of their favorite photos from that year for each person in your family. (That would be six copies of each photo if you’re a family of six.) Then, share your memories while enjoying time together. You can also have each family member bring an empty photo album with them to fill with the photos they receive so they can look back on their wonderful holiday experience next year.
  1. Create a family gratitude journal. Grab a beautiful journal or inexpensive notebook and set it in a public place where every member of the family has access to it. Starting on January 1 or even as early as December 1, each person will write one thing they’re thankful for in the journal each day. In 2018, you can all look back on your thankful messages together!

SpartanNash Direct launches Your Dollars™ program to support local charities

Byron Center, MI, 2016-Aug-09 — /EPR Retail News/ — Store guests will soon have a new way to support their favorite local charities, schools and other nonprofit organizations through the SpartanNash program, Direct Your Dollars™. The receipt-based program makes it easier than ever for eligible nonprofit organizations to earn $1,000.

Direct Your Dollars launched on Aug. 1 in more than 160 SpartanNash-owned retail stores and fuel centers in nine states.

“Our Direct Your Dollars™ program is built on the concept of shopping with purpose, meaning our store guests can use their purchasing power to support their favorite nonprofits,” said Dennis Eidson, president and CEO of SpartanNash. “The Direct Your Dollars program allows local nonprofit organizations to turn receipts into dollars for computers, textbooks, field trips, athletic and band equipment, food and meal supplies and much more – just by shopping at any one of our retail stores. For many, it’s a familiar program with a new name, and we’re excited to expand our corporate responsibility to our communities through Direct Your Dollars.”

Direct Your Dollars™ replaces the Support Our Schools program offered in some of the company’s west stores and the Michigan-based Cash for Class program.

For store guests, earning money through the Direct Your Dollars program is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

  1. Shop any of SpartanNash’s corporate-owned stores.
  2. Turn in your store receipts to your favorite participating nonprofit organization – and encourage your family and friends to do the same.
  3. When the participating nonprofit collects $150,000 in eligible receipts, they can turn them in for a $1,000 check from SpartanNash.

Participating groups must have a valid 501(c)(3) determination to be eligible. Preschool and K-12 schools are eligible to participate, as well as school-sponsored groups and clubs. Faith-based and community service organizations can also participate in the Direct Your Dollars program.

A section titled “Direct Your Dollars” will be included on all receipts to make it easier for organizations to compute their Direct Your Dollars receipt totals. Some purchases are excluded from the Direct Your Dollars program, such as tobacco, postage, fuel, gift cards and lottery, and will not be included in the “Direct Your Dollars” tally.

Receipts from any SpartanNash-owned store – including Family Fare Supermarket, D&W Fresh Market, Family Fresh Market, Forest Hills Foods, VG’s, SunMart, Supermercado Nuestra Familia, Bag n Save, No Frills, Prairie Market, Pick N Save, Germantown Fresh Market, Dillonvalle IGA, Econofoods, Dan’s Supermarket and ValuLand – will be accepted and must total $150,000 before a check will be issued.

K-Plussa to be the most personally rewarding customer loyalty programme in Finland

Helsinki, Finland, 2016-Aug-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — The K-Group’s customer loyalty programme Plussa will become increasingly personalized in October 2016. At the same time, Plussa will be digitized and it will reward customers that patronize the K-Group.

The aim of the revised K-Plussa is to improve the customer experience by recognizing customers with personally targeted benefits. The customer gets personally tailored Plussa special offers based on their purchasing habits. More than 3.6 million Finnish people have a Plussa card in nearly 2.3 million households.

– Plussa aims to be the most personally rewarding customer loyalty programme in Finland.  We will offer our customers precisely those products which they would choose anyway, but at more affordable prices. The more often you use the Plussa card, the better and more personalized it becomes, says Anni Ronkainen, SVP, Chief Digital Officer of Kesko.

The K-Plussa customer loyalty programme will be revised in early October. One of the most significant changes is its digitization. As of the beginning of October, customers can use the collected Plussa points as electronic Plussa money conveniently with the Plussa card at the K-Group stores. Plussa points will continue to be calculated in the same way as before the revision. In this context, printed points vouchers and the payment of points to bank accounts can be abandoned. You can monitor your Plussa account using a mobile application or on the web.

A customer programme with personalized product and service benefits will be built jointly with the K-Group chains and the partner network for customers who concentrate their purchases on the K-Group. The programme is targeted to customers whose annual purchases from the K-Group stores exceed €6,500.

K-Plussa is a unifying factor in the K-Group. The entire K is involved in the development of the customer loyalty programme taking account of customer wishes. The new features to be introduced in October are only the beginning of Plussa’s long-term development.

– A personalized approach is the K-Group’s most important differentiation element in Kesko’s strategy. K-Plussa offers the most personalized benefits from Finland’s widest store and partner network, says Ronkainen.

SVP, Chief Digital Officer Anni Ronkainen will present the K-Plussa revision at Kesko’s half year financial report briefing today at 11.30. The briefing will be held at Katajanokka, Helsinki, Ankkurikatu 5, fourth floor.

K-Plussa is the most extensive and diverse customer loyalty programme in Finland, which offers benefits to its customers from over 3,000 shopping places and over 40 business partners. There are over 3.6 million K-Plussa cardholders in nearly 2.3 million households in Finland. Further information at:

Meijer kicks off fall campaign of its signature hunger relief program, Simply Give

Meijer kicks off fall campaign of its signature hunger relief program, Simply Give
Meijer kicks off fall campaign of its signature hunger relief program, Simply Give

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., 2016-Aug-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — After a record-setting spring campaign tied to the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give, Midwest retailer Meijer recently kicked off the fall campaign of its signature hunger relief program, Simply Give, across its six-state footprint in an effort to help local food pantry partners restock their shelves.

“Meijer is committed to helping end the problem of food insecurity in the Midwest,” Co-Chairman Doug Meijer said. “With the ongoing generous support of our customers, we can continue to stock the shelves of local food pantries and aid families in our own communities.”

How it works:

During each Simply Give campaign, customers are encouraged to purchase a $10 Simply Give donation card upon checkout. The donation will then be converted into a Meijer food-only gift card and given to the local food pantry selected by the store after the campaign concludes.

The fall Simply Give campaign will run now through Sept. 24. Simply Give donation cards can be purchased at all 229 Meijer stores and will benefit a local food pantry. Meijer Simply Give donation cards can be found on fixtures near the checkout, as well as in the grocery and pharmacy departments.

Since Meijer began its Simply Give program in 2008, nearly $24 million has been donated to help neighborhood food pantries keep their shelves stocked throughout the year.

In addition, Meijer will double match customers’ donations Sept. 1-3. That means for every $10 donation card purchase, Meijer will contribute $20, resulting in a total $30 donation.

The Simply Give program runs three times a year to help fulfill the needs of the retailer’s food pantry partners during the times of most need: Spring, Fall and Holiday. The partnering food pantries are rotated to ensure broad outreach in the communities. Instead of determining what food to donate to the food pantry partners, the Simply Give program allows the pantries the flexibility to choose the grocery items best suited for the families they serve.

About Meijer:
Meijer is a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer that operates 229 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin. As a pioneer of the “one-stop shopping” concept, Meijer stores have evolved through the years to include expanded fresh produce and meat departments, as well as pharmacies, comprehensive apparel departments, garden centers and electronic offerings.

Sears starts the back-to-school season with two new private label apparel lines and a new “The Secret Life of Pets” app game

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., 2016-Jul-28 — /EPR Retail News/ —  Sears has kicked off the back-to-school season with two new private label apparel lines, a new interactive in-store Sears app experience and shopping conveniences that make shopping easier, more fun with less time taken away from the last few days of summer.

With fresh, updated jeans perennially high on back-to-school shopping lists, Sears was inspired to expand its popular Roebuck & Co. line to boys and girls. Previously only available for men, the new Roebuck & Co. line includes denim, plus khaki cargo pants, long-sleeve tops and hoodies for boys, and leggings, tops and jackets for girls. Sears also introduced R1893 – a diverse women’s denim collection that features six fits and 52 washes.

“Back to school style is about having the confidence and swag to rock a logo-less tee and unbranded jacket. It’s being on trend and owning your style by making it yours. And you can seriously do that at Sears,” said Joelle Maher, president and chief member officer for Sears. “The new apparel lines will remind our members that denim is not only our heritage, it’s our passion. We believe in expertly constructed fits, rich vintage washes and serious attention to detail.”

  • R1893– With a name calling back to when the Sears Roebuck name first appeared, this new women’s collection takes denim to a new level. The collection features six fits – hi-rise jeggings, girlfriend, boot, skinny, jegging, and skinny flare – with higher cotton content and fits with varying stretch, making the jeans feel buttery, yet durable, and holding in the right places. Sizes are 2-18 and range in price from $39-$49.
  • Roebuck & Co.– This brand plays to Sears’ heritage and focuses on quality and value. The boys line has a classic collegiate feel, with tints of color and dry processing to give it a vintage look. The line comes in two fits – straight and slim straight, each in four washes – three denim washes and black. The girls line conveys a bohemian, free-spirited attitude and features three fits – jegging, legging jean, and boot cut, with stretch in each. The jegging comes in six washes, including black, grey, and two fashion colors (pink and turquoise); legging jeans have an elastic waistband and come in four washes/colors; and boot cut comes in two indigo washes. Denim sizes are 7-16 for girls and 8-20 for boys, with plus and husky sizing available, ranging in price from $24-$32.

Find Max and Win at Sears
Catching the wave of engaging, real-world app play, Sears teamed with the makers of the summer blockbuster “The Secret Life of Pets,” bringing the characters to the Sears app for a fun interactive game. To play the “Find Max” game, users launch the Sears app in-store then search for clues marked with a QR code. When all three QR codes are scanned, Max’s secret location is revealed, unlocking opportunities to enter sweepstakes, earn instant Shop Your Way points and more. Text “FINDMAX” to 73277 to download or update the Sears app.

Tying together Sears’ “Seriously Sears” back to school campaign is a series of digital videos that showcase Sears exciting new fashion looks for girls, boys and teens. Two spots viewable on Sears’ YouTube channel include “Chat” and “Soccer Moments.”

7‑Eleven to set measurable corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals to reduce its environmental footprint

IRVING, Texas, 2016-Jul-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — 7‑Eleven, Inc., the world’s largest convenience retailer, is working with Conservation International (CI), a nonprofit organization dedicated to building a healthier, more prosperous and more productive planet through science, policy and partnerships, to set measurable corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals to reduce its environmental footprint.

7‑Eleven’s CSR mission has three focus areas – planet, products and people. Using 2015 as a baseline, 7‑Eleven® will continue to reduce its carbon footprint and increase community engagement in the U.S. and Canada by concentrating on energy, packaging and philanthropy.

Specifically, it is 7‑Eleven’s goal to:

  • Reduce its energy footprint in stores and offices by 20 percent by 2025
  • Reduce its packaging footprint by 20 percent by 2025
  • Increase corporate giving to 1 percent of operating net income annually, beginning in 2017

“These goals are specific and measurable,” said Joe DePinto, 7‑Eleven president and chief executive officer. “We’ve already taken important steps to reduce our carbon footprint, and these new targets will help us focus our efforts to make even greater strides.”

7‑Eleven has decreased electricity use in store operations by an estimated 21 percent over the past seven years through projects including installing LED lighting, energy management systems and high efficiency HVAC units.

7‑Eleven has also joined CI’s Business and Sustainability Council, a forum for corporate leaders taking positive environmental actions in their businesses, to explore mutually beneficial ways to further reduce its environmental impact.

“It is no secret that the conveniences that make each day better for us all require resources from nature,” said Peter Seligmann, Chairman and CEO of Conservation International. “7‑Eleven’s 2025 goals reveal how a company can make decisions that support their business as well as our planet’s future. Conservation International is thrilled to support 7‑Eleven in this endeavor.”

The retailer is designing eco-friendly packaging in order to reduce waste, including a recyclable stay-hot coffee cup, Private Brand beverage bottles made with recycled materials, and hot foods packaging made with less material.

Starting in 2017, 7‑Eleven will tie its corporate giving to its performance, giving back 1 percent of its operating net income annually with a focus on expanding participation in two of its most successful programs benefitting youth:

  • Created in 2012, the Project A-Game™ program has awarded nearly 1,800 financial grants totaling more than $900,000 to local schools and youth sports organizations.
  • The Operation Chill® program partners with over 900 local law enforcement agencies to reward young people caught in the act of “doing good” with a free Slurpee® drink coupon. During its 21 year span, more than 15 million coupons have been distributed.
