The free fruit program is part of ShopRite’s ongoing commitment to providing health and wellness offerings to its customers.

Price Chopper Supermarkets and Market 32 expand home delivery service powered by Instacart to Capital Region of New York

SCHENECTADY, NY, 2017-Dec-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — Price Chopper Supermarkets and Market 32 continue to grow their partnership with Instacart, the technology-driven, nationwide on-demand grocery delivery service, by bringing same-day home delivery of groceries to Price Chopper/Market 32 customers throughout the Capital Region.

To place an order for delivery, customers simply go to shop.pricechopper.com or shop.market32.com. To encourage trial of the new service, Price Chopper/Market 32 is offering a $10 discount to new Instacart customers on their first order of $35 (or more) and waiving the delivery fee. The offer code for first time users is PCDELIVERS. The promotion is good through December 31, 2017.

Instacart’s business model raises the bar for online ordering and home delivery service to customers across Price Chopper/Market 32’s Capital Region footprint. The app efficiently connects an intuitive ordering process to a waiting shopper/driver to the assortment of fresh and high quality packaged products customers have come to expect from Price Chopper/Market 32 – at the same prices customers would find in the stores, including the vast majority of advertised sale prices. Instacart delivery fees vary based on the order size and desired delivery time. The specific delivery fee for each order will be displayed during checkout before the order is placed. For orders over $35, Instacart typically charges $5.99 for orders placed at least two hours in advance, and $7.99 for orders requested within one hour.

Instacart will replace the chain’s Shops4U service immediately in the Capital Region, though Shops4U will operate through Saturday, December 2 so to honor all orders that have already been placed. All Shops4U employees have been offered positions elsewhere within their Price Chopper/Market 32 store.

“We’re proud of the product mix and shopping experience we provide in our stores. And we’re thrilled to extend both beyond our four walls by adding the streamlined convenience of grocery delivery through Instacart. We know that our customers are busy and always looking for ways to save both time and money. Offering fresh produce, the best meats and grocery staples delivered right to the doorstep at a good value is yet another way that we can serve our customers,” said Glen Bradley, Price Chopper/Market 32’s group vice president of marketing.

“Instacart’s success hinges on our ability to offer customers same-day delivery from the stores they love within their own communities,” said Andrew Nodes, Vice President, Retail Accounts for Instacart. “We are proud to partner with Price Chopper and Market 32 Supermarkets to give customers a convenient, time-saving option to get the products they’ve come to rely on from this beloved brand.”

Price Chopper/Market 32 introduced Instacart earlier this month in Binghamton, Endicott, Chenango, Syracuse NY Hartford, CT and Central MA.

Golub Corporation opens its latest Market 32 store in Clifton Park, N.Y.

Clifton Park, N.Y., 2017-Jul-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Golub Corporation cut the ribbon today (June 27, 2017 ) on its latest Market 32 that was built from the ground up in Clifton Park, N.Y., which serves as another showcase of the chain’s contemporary new supermarket concept.

“Market 32 is a contemporary, food-focused store that reflects what our customers have told us they want in a modern and convenient shopping experience,” said Scott Grimmett, Golub Corporation president and CEO. “We continue to evolve our Market 32 brand, incorporating the offers, enhanced service and technology that are resonating most with today’s customers.”

Located at the corner of Route 146 and Vischer Ferry Road, this Market 32 is nearly twice the size of the Price Chopper that was formerly located on this lot and is the centerpiece of a redesigned Clifton Park Plaza and a new parking area that is being developed by Nigro Companies. This is the second Market 32 located in Clifton Park; Market 32 in Clifton Shoppers World, further east on Route 146, opened in 2015.

Golub Corporation Executive Chairman Neil Golub, President and CEO Scott Grimmett, Vice Chairman Jerry Golub, and Store Manager Ed Gendron, NYS Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh, Deputy Chief of Staff to Senator Jim Tedisco Christopher Rhodes, Senior Constituent Representative to Congressman Paul Tonko Cora Schroeter, Clifton Park Town Supervisor Phil Barrett, Developer John Nigro of Nigro Companies, President of MLB Construction Jim Dawsey, President of the Southern Saratoga Chamber Pete Bardunias and other elected officials and civic and business leaders joined hundreds of local residents for an official ribbon-cutting ceremony. The American flag was raised by members of VFW Post #1498.

This is the 15th Market 32 to open since the company announced its plans to develop the new brand across the majority of its stores. To date, 11 of the company’s Price Chopper stores have been converted to Market 32,
while four have been built from the ground up in Sutton, Mass. (opened in October 2015); Oxford, Conn. (in September 2016), Fort Edward, N.Y. (in January 2017), and Clifton Park. Several conversions are currently in motion
across the chain’s six-state footprint in East Greenbush, N.Y.; Burlington and Brattleboro, VT; and Worcester, Mass. The Golub Corporation also expects to break ground on a new Market 32 in Maynard, Mass. this summer.

The look and feel of Market 32 is distinctively more modern than Price Chopper, though many of the differences are subtle. Marked by open space, a décor filled with soft earth tones and product-focused displays, murals and lighting, the brand emphasizes convenient, ready-to-eat foods; fresh, handcrafted and locally grown, produced and manufactured products; and intuitive product/department adjacencies (e.g., greeting cards next to the
floral department).

“Our newest Clifton Park Market 32 is a grocery store for all generations. And while we remain focused on quality, value, and a high standard of service, we’ve enhanced the shopping experience with modern conveniences and a host of signature categories, items and offers – from customized prepared foods to drive-thru pharmacies,patisseries, cafés equipped with WIFI and growler stations that raise the bar in meeting the needs of today’s
customers,” said Grimmett.

The 52,400-square-foot store employs nearly 160 full- and part-time teammates, reflecting a significant increase in the size of the workforce, which has also become a signature of the chain’s new brand. Some of the
departmental features of the new Clifton Park Market 32 include:
• A Center Store (Grocery and General Merchandise) department features PICS – Market 32’s exclusive line of high-quality, value-priced products; a customizable ‘pick 24’ on single-serve PICS brand coffee pods; an expanded craft beer section with a ‘Pick 6’ and large variety of local N.Y. favorites; locally sourced products (both dry packaged and dairy); natural and organic offerings integrated into their relative categories; and an expansive gluten-free section.
• A full-service, Fresh Meat Department offers an extensive variety of high-quality Certified Angus Beef steaks and roasts, including specialty restaurant cuts such as the tomahawk rib steak and bone-in filet. Our exclusive
Chiappetti brand offers 100% Grass Fed & Grass Finished Antibiotic Free beef along with all natural and hormone-free lamb and veal. Convenient, value-added offerings include panko-encrusted cutlets and marinated meats, along with the option to season or marinate any of our USDA Grade chicken, beef and pork products for free by our in-store expert butchers.
• A wide-ranging, colorful and Fresh Produce Department features an abundance of unique items such as heirloom tomatoes, fresh bunches of herbs, a wide variety of exotic mushrooms and a large selection of many different types of peppers. Market 32 is dedicated to finding local providers for produce (as possible, given growing seasons) and is committed to an expanded assortment of organic produce. Additionally, customers will find an assortment of prepared, ready-to-cook and grab-n-go fruit and vegetables.
• The Fresh and Healthy Seafood Department offers the most extensive assortment of salmon found in a supermarket, including wild caught, farm raised, Scottish, cedar planked, marinated portions, stuffed pinwheels, and a delectable, exclusive New Zealand King Salmon – all in all, more than three dozen varieties from which to choose. The extensive fin fish selection includes sea bass, halibut portions, tilapia, haddock; the varieties of shellfish include lobster, clams, shrimp and crab. Fresh seafood selections fried or steamed to order, with classic sides such as coleslaw and French fries, top a menu of full prepared meals, while selections dredged in free seasoning rubs, or those that have been breaded or stuffed offer simple, ready-to-cook
solutions.
• A Fresh Deli Department features quality sliced meats and cheeses that help to create healthy meal solutions, such as those from McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli, whose offerings include turkeys sourced from local family farms, raised with no antibiotics and no growth hormones, and hams with no nitrates.
• An expanded Specialty Cheese Department features Market 32’s signature Cheese Shop with more than 200 varieties of unique cheeses, including those from local makers. Our knowledgeable cheese mongers are there to help customers sample and select the right cheese every time, whether for entertaining or snacking.
• Convenient, Delicious and Healthy Prepared Foods are available throughout the store so shoppers can bring home full meals or supplement meals without sacrificing freshness or value. Offerings include a full-service
Starbucks; a made-to-order salad station where shoppers can customize their salad; classic NYC-style deli sandwiches; fresh-baked Corner to Corner and Tavoletta pizzas; a variety of hot and cold soups; an in-store smoker that slow cooks ribs, brisket, chicken and pulled pork with Market 32’s signature rub; sushi and Aburi (toasted sushi) made fresh in store; Grab & Go and Heat & Eat meals; and, a unique Chef’s Case that offers entrees and sides, giving shoppers the opportunity to customize their meal combinations.
• A colorful and aromatic Floral Department with flowers to brighten any room or occasion greets Market 32 shoppers as they enter the store. As the largest florist in the Northeast, Market 32 has a wide array of assorted fresh flowers and plants. With custom design services, Market 32 floral experts can help customers design the perfect flowers for all of life’s occasions.
• A warm and inviting Bakery Department provides delicious store-made breads and desserts, signature Vienna breads and decadent individual deserts such as fruit tarts and cupcakes, as well as dessert and special
occasion cakes.

Throughout Market 32, customers will notice a commitment to supporting local manufacturers and growers, sourcing authentic imports, and expanding varieties of gluten-free, organic and natural products.

“We’re very proud of this store and pleased to continue to invest in and be a part of this community,” said Grimmett.

Price Rite Supermarkets opens store at the South Side of Syracuse, NY

Syracuse, NY, 2017-Apr-04 — /EPR Retail News/ — Price Rite Supermarkets on Sunday opened its new 35,000-square-foot store at 611 South Ave. — a long awaited addition to the South Side of Syracuse.

Price Rite’s shopper-friendly format features a wide selection of fresh produce, natural and organic products and a variety of private label and national grocery brands – at about half the cost of a traditional supermarket. The much-anticipated store brings 100 jobs to the community and a service oriented supermarket featuring a wide selection of fresh groceries and perishable products to an area with limited access to fresh food.

In celebration of its official grand opening, a ribbon cutting ceremony with Price Rite executives and local community leaders took place Sunday. Price Rite of South Ave also donated $3,000 to the Syracuse Model Neighborhood Facility Inc., in the name of the Southwest Community Center, a nonprofit multipurpose neighborhood center.

“We are pleased to announce the opening of our new Syracuse store on South Avenue, and we are privileged to be part of this community and all the great new development that is happening along the southwest corridor,” said Neil Duffy, president of Price Rite. “Local residents have been waiting for a supermarket for a long time, and we look forward to becoming a vital part of the community and being a good neighbor while providing local shoppers with the outstanding customer service, variety, value and low prices that Price Rite is known for. Our operation is driven by the philosophy that customers should not have to sacrifice quality to save on price, and we are excited to deliver on that promise.”

Price Rite has worked closely with Jubilee Homes of Syracuse Inc., a local nonprofit, and its Executive Director, Walter Dixie, as well as city, county and state officials to bring the new store to an area designated as a food desert, providing a service oriented supermarket and serving as a retail anchor tenant along the South Avenue corridor.

Dollar General to build its 16th distribution center located in Amsterdam, New York

Project expected to create 430 jobs in Montgomery County when fully operational; Facility to serve as 16th distribution center for major discount retailer

GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn., 2017-Feb-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Dollar General (NYSE: DG) today (February 22, 2017) announced plans to build the company’s 16th distribution center in Amsterdam, New York, located in Montgomery County. At full capacity, the project is expected to create 430 new jobs, as well as up to 200 additional, temporary construction jobs needed to build the project. After necessary permits and approvals are received, construction on the estimated 750,000-square-foot facility should begin in late spring 2017 with a planned completion date in fall 2018.

“Dollar General is excited to add another state-of-the-art and highly-efficient distribution center to support our growing store network in both New York and throughout the northeast,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s CEO. “It’s very exciting to move forward on a project that will create more than 400 jobs in Montgomery County. I am grateful for our continued partnership and support on this project from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York’s Empire State Development and local leadership in Montgomery County.”

Dollar General has selected Clayco as the project’s official general contractor, Leo A. Daly as the architectural engineering firm and Elan Design as the civil engineering firm.

When fully operational, the facility is expected to supply products to approximately 800 Dollar General stores throughout New York and the northeastern states that Dollar General serves. Dollar General most recently opened its 14th distribution center in Janesville, Wisconsin and is currently under construction on its 15th facility in Jackson, Georgia. Regionally, the most recent distribution center was completed in 2014 in Bethel, Pennsylvania.

Amsterdam was chosen in part for its convenient location to Interstate 90, its proximity to Dollar General stores throughout the northeast, Montgomery County’s local business environment, quality workforce in the area and the availability of local and state economic incentives, among numerous other considerations.

In New York, Dollar General currently operates approximately 360 stores with more than 3,000 employees. Earlier this month, the company announced plans to create roughly 340 net new jobs in New York as a result of new store growth planned for its 2017 fiscal year.

Dollar General’s 15 other distribution centers are located in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin.

The Golub Corporation opens its first “ground up” Market 32 store in Ft. Edward, New York

FT. EDWARD, N.Y, 2017-Jan-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Golub Corporation cut the ribbon on its first “ground up” Market 32 in the State of New York today in Ft. Edward, giving local residents the opportunity to experience the chain’s contemporary new supermarket concept. Located at 354 Broadway, this redevelopment project reflects a Herculean collaborative effort by the Golub Corporation, the municipality, developers, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the Environmental Protection Agency and National Grid. Constructed on a fully remediated brownfield site, the new Market 32 bolsters the town’s comprehensive redevelopment plan and returns a supermarket to the town for the first time since 2003.

Golub Corporation Executive Chairman Neil Golub, Vice Chairman Jerry Golub, President & CEO Scott Grimmett, Store Manager Joe Reiser and other company officials were joined by Deputy Secretary of State Sandi Allen, New York State Assembly Member Carrie Woerner, Ft. Edward Town Supervisor Mitch Suprenant, Village of Ft. Edward Mayor Matthew Traver, Town Trustee and Grant Writer Darlene DeVoe, and other elected officials and civic leaders, including Bruce Ginsburg of IKON Realty Group, David Kaplan of Kaplan Realty and hundreds of local residents for an official ribbon-cutting ceremony. The American flag was raised by members of American Legion #1133.

A catered preview party held the night before drew several hundred people to the store and raised thousands of dollars for Ft. Edward Youth Sports, Ft. Edward Community Food Pantry and the Ft. Edward Backpack Program. All proceeds collected at the door were matched by both Market 32 and the team of IKON and Kaplan Realty Groups.

“Market 32 is a contemporary, food-focused concept store that reflects what our customers have told us they want in a modern and convenient shopping experience,” said Grimmett.

This is the 12th Market 32 to open since the company announced its plans to develop the new brand across the majority of its stores. To date, 10 of the company’s Price Chopper stores have been converted to Market 32, while three have been built from the ground up in Sutton, Mass. (opened in October 2015); Oxford, Conn. (in September 2016) and Ft. Edward. Several conversions are currently underway across the chain’s six state footprint, while another new ground up store is planned for Clifton Park, N.Y. in 2017.

The look and feel of Market 32 is distinctively more modern than Price Chopper, though many of the differences are subtle. Marked by open space, a décor filled with soft earth tones and productfocused displays, murals and lighting, the brand emphasizes convenient, ready-to-eat foods; fresh, handcrafted, and locally grown, produced and manufactured products; and intuitive product/department adjacencies (e.g., greeting cards next to the floral department).

“Our Ft. Edward Market 32 is a grocery store for this and future generations. While maintaining our focus on quality and value, we’ve added a host of wonderful signature items throughout the store, plus modern conveniences like customized prepared foods, a café equipped with WiFi, a full-service pharmacy with a drive-through, a Chef’s Table offering food demonstrations and sampling, and a new higher standard of service,” said Grimmett.

The more than 41,000-square-foot store employs 170 full- and part-time teammates. Some of the features of the new Ft Edward Market 32 include:

• A Full-Service Pharmacy, with a convenient drive-through, is a complete health and wellness destination for the community. Pharmacists can answer health and medication related questions in private patient consultation rooms and administer flu and other preventative shots. Most insurance plans are accepted and Market 32 makes it easy to transfer prescriptions. Market 32’s award-winning Diabetes AdvantEdge program offers customers free diabetes medications and supplies while the RxAdvantEdge Plan offers discounts on medications. And an onsite blood pressure kiosk is available to customers, as are personal SmartCards, to help those who are interested in tracking their results and sharing them with a health care provider.

• A Center Store (Grocery and General Merchandise) department featuring: the rollout of PICS – Market 32’s exclusive line of high-quality, value-priced products; a customizable ‘pick 24’ on single serve Price Chopper brand coffee pods; an expanded craft beer section with a “Pick 6” and large variety of local N.Y. favorites; locally sourced products (both dry packaged and dairy); natural and organic offerings integrated into their relative categories; and an expansive glutenfree section.

• A full-service, Fresh Meat Department offers an extensive variety of high-quality Certified Angus Beef steaks and roasts, including specialty restaurant cuts such as the tomahawk rib steak and bone-in filet. Case ready variety includes an exclusive on Chiappetti 100% Grass Fed/Grass Finished Antibiotic Free beef and all natural and hormone free lamb and veal. Convenient, value-added meats include panko-encrusted cutlets, stuffed chops with all natural no water/no salt added, and the free seasoning and/or marinating of USDA Grade A chicken, beef and pork products by our in-store expert butchers.

• A wide ranging, colorful and Fresh Produce Department with mountains of heirloom tomatoes, fresh bunches of herbs and a wide variety of mushrooms and peppers. Market 32 is dedicated to finding local providers for produce (as possible, given growing seasons) and is committed to an expanded assortment of organic produce. Additionally, customers will find an assortment of prepared, ready-to-cook and grab-n-go fruit and vegetables.

• The Fresh and Healthy Seafood Department offers the most extensive assortment of salmon found in a supermarket, including wild caught, farm raised, Scottish, cedar planked, marinated portions, stuffed pinwheels, and even New Zealand King Salmon – all in all, more than three dozen varieties from which to choose. The extensive fin fish selection includes sea bass, halibut portions, tilapia, haddock; the varieties of shellfish include lobster, clams, shrimp and crab. Fresh seafood selections fried or steamed to order, with classic sides such as coleslaw and French fries, top a menu of full prepared meals, while selections dredged in free seasoning rubs, or those that have been breaded or stuffed offer simple, ready-to-cook solutions.

• A Fresh Deli Department featuring quality sliced meats and cheeses that help to create healthy meal solutions, such as those from McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli, whose turkeys and hams are sourced from local family farms and contain no antibiotics, no growth hormones and no nitrates.

• An expanded Specialty Cheese Department featuring Market 32’s signature Cheese Shop with more than 200 varieties of unique cheeses, including those from local makers. Our knowledgeable cheese mongers are there to help customers sample and select the right cheese every time, whether for entertaining or snacking.

L.L.Bean to open new store in New York in spring 2017

Freeport, ME, 2016-Oct-26 — /EPR Retail News/ — Internationally recognized outdoor retailer L.L.Bean, best known for its L.L.Bean Boots, everyday free shipping and 100% satisfaction guarantee, is set to expand its retail operation with the opening of its fifth New York store, scheduled to open in the spring of 2017. The L.L.Bean store will be located at the Smith Haven Mall, which features over 140 stores and a variety of dining options, located in Long Island’s Suffolk County in Lake Grove, New York. The 16,000-square-foot store will feature an assortment of active and casual apparel and footwear, as well as outdoor lifestyle gear including hiking, fly fishing, kayaking, winter gear and camping products. The store will employ approximately 70 people. This will be L.L.Bean’s fifth store in New York and its 31st retail store outside of Maine.

“We’re going to be infusing a bit of the Maine spirit and L.L.Bean brand into Long Island,” said Ken Kacere, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of Retail at L.L.Bean. “People who may have only shopped with us through our catalog or website will now be able to see and feel the essence of L.L.Bean in person. We’re thrilled to be coming into Suffolk County. There are numerous bike paths, paddling and fishing on the Nissequogue and Connetquot Rivers, Long Island Sound or in Great South Bay and several other excellent opportunities for outdoor recreation.”

And this fall, just in time for the holidays, L.L.Bean will be opening a 10’ x 20’ pop-up shop just outside the entrance of the future store entrance. The new location is currently hiring and will employ 15 people. The new preview pop-up shop will open mid-October.

“Our pop-store will give customers in Suffolk County a sneak peek at some of our great outdoor outerwear and our iconic L.L.Bean Boots, as well as a taste of our brand in preparation for when we open our permanent location in the spring of 2017,” continued Kacere.

L.L.Bean made the decision to continue to expand its retail presence into New York as part of its overall retail expansion plan and due to the store’s proximity to several abundant natural resources and multiple opportunities for many outdoor activities, as well as a population base that enjoys regularly engaging in a variety of outdoor pursuits. The store will allow the people of Long Island to experience firsthand everything that the legendary outdoor retailer has to offer, such as quality merchandise, a welcoming shopping environment and a large roster of ongoing demonstrations and clinics on a number of outdoor topics.

Of particular note will be the inclusion of L.L.Bean’s Outdoor Discovery Schools, which will offer demonstrations, clinics and introductory hands-on activities like snowshoeing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, archery and fly casting, all designed to make it easy for people to engage in outdoor activities for health, fitness and recreation. L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools courses are offered at every L.L.Bean retail store. In 2015, over 140,000 people participated in these programs.

“We are thrilled to welcome the first L.L.Bean store on Long Island to Smith Haven Mall,” commented Christopher Brivio, General Manager for Smith Haven Mall. “The addition of L.L.Bean will complement our impressive collection of retailers and we expect the brand’s high-quality apparel, footwear and lifestyle gear will be very well-received by its loyal devotees and new customer base alike. We look forward to the pop-up shop opening in October followed by the permanent location’s debut in spring 2017.”

Littlewoods Ireland wins gold at the second international annual Search Engine Land Awards in New York

Liverpool,UK, 2016-Sep-30 — /EPR Retail News/ — Littlewoods Ireland was awarded gold in the category of best integration of search into cross-channel marketing at the second international annual Search Engine Land Awards in New York.

This is the first year an Irish company has won a Landy Award, with Littlewoods Ireland overcoming stiff competition from international companies, including Morgan Stanley’s Super Bowl Campaign.

Littlewoods Ireland’s winning campaign looked to improve customer experience across all of their platforms for shoppers of their Autumn Winter collection in 2015 and was delivered in partnership with Dublin-based digital marketing firm Wolfgang Digital. The successful campaign involved optimisation across multiple forms of social media, as well as search – both organic and paid.

The Landy Awards received nearly 200 entries and were created to recognise excellence in search marketing initiatives. Entrants came from a range of sectors and disciplines across the world including companies such as Morgan Stanley, Deliveroo, Macys.com and Virgin America.com.

Speaking about the win, Rossa Butler, eCommerce and Marketing Manager for Littlewoods Ireland, said: “Customers today are no longer shopping on one device so ensuring they have a smooth and enjoyable customer experience whether it’s on our mobile site, desktop or through our social and digital activity is paramount.

“We’ve been working closely with Wolfgang Digital to make it as easy as possible for our customers to find what they need, when they need it and this is something we’re really passionate about.”

Littlewoods Ireland and Wolfgang Digital were one of five included in the shortlist for their category, which also featured:

  • LSEO for The Commonwealth Medical College
  • MediaVest / Spark for Morgan Stanley
  • Power Digital Marketing for TheDrawShop.com
  • Wolfgang Digital for Littlewoods Ireland
  • Zimmerman & Be Found Online for Jamba Juice

The Littlewoods Ireland team has been busy making their mark in the industry in 2016, following recent wins at the All-Ireland Marketing (AIM) Awards, where the team took home the ecommerce award for their integrated Autumn Winter campaign, and at the 2016 Search Awards hosted by marketing publication, The Drum, where it scooped the best integrated campaign award and the gold grand prix award for the best overall campaign.

Bacterial Meningitis Vaccine available at all Walgreens pharmacies, including Duane Reade pharmacies in New York, and Healthcare Clinics nationwide

DEERFIELD, Ill., 2016-Aug-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — Walgreens is now offering vaccinations that provide protection against most strains of serogroup B meningococcal disease (bacterial meningitis) at all of its pharmacies, including Duane Reade pharmacies in New York, and Healthcare Clinics nationwide. Vaccinations are available daily without an appointment and may be covered by insurance.

Walgreens pharmacists and Healthcare Clinic nurse practitioners can administer the new meningitis B vaccines (Bexsero® or Trumenba®) in most states to individuals ages 10 through 25.* The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) specifically recommends that meningitis B vaccines may be given to provide short term protection to anyone 16 to 23 years of age.

Meningitis spreads through the exchange of respiratory and throat secretions and primarily affects adolescents and young adults. Teens and adults whose immunity has faded or live in close quarters, such as college dormitories, may also be at risk.

“We support the recommendations of health officials and stress that vaccination is the best protection against meningitis,” said Richard Ashworth, Walgreens president of pharmacy and retail operations. “Walgreens pharmacists and Healthcare Clinic nurse practitioners continue to play an important role in providing more convenient access to vaccinations and other preventive services, and these new vaccines can be instrumental in helping to control meningitis.”

According to the CDC, symptoms of meningitis usually are sudden onset of fever, headache and stiff neck. It can start with symptoms similar to influenza (flu) and will often also cause nausea, vomiting, increased sensitivity to light, rash and confusion.

In addition to the meningitis B vaccines, Walgreens also offers the quadrivalent meningococcal vaccines that protect against four serogroups (A, C, W, and Y). Patients are encouraged to speak to a health care professional or pharmacist to determine their vaccination needs.

To find the nearest Walgreens, call 1-800-WALGREENS or visit www.walgreens.com.

*Vaccines are subject to availability. Age, state and health-related restrictions may apply.

‘I decided to build out my own production facilities and produce my bags in house not because I wanted to, it was simply because no other factory in the world was used to working with the materials I use”, said Kamilah Willacy.

“I simply didn’t have a choice to produce on my own in New York; it was either design around the capability of the factories out there or produce myself and maintain my desired level of creativity” -Kamilah Willacy

Kamilah Willacy’s accessories are unique and set her apart from most accessories designer’s due to her architectural background and experience in the commercial development and furniture industry. Her industry knowledge as influenced her use of materials. Most of her work is made of architectural steel and high gloss poured glass resin and you will sometimes find real wood and marble used.

The company is Emerging and the go to bag for the royals and elite crowd due to her ability to create bespoke designs on demand.

“ I am able to create bespoke products for my elite customers because I have my own design facilities. It a rewarding feeling and sense of pride you have when you are able to offer something unique for your customers”, says Designer Kamilah Willacy.

Kamilah Willacy’s strategy launching her brand of accessories was to offer entry level pricing to allow the average consumer an opportunity to purchase her product. Starting Price points ranged from $225-$1100.

Her private bespoke bags which can sometimes incorporate real sterling silver frames plated with 24k gold featuring her original artwork can range from $2000-$15,500 on average.

Kamilah Willacy is an example of why the initiative for local fashion and manufacturing in New York is important. It is raising the level of creativity and stimulating the growth of jobs which is very mush needed.
