CHESHUNT, England, 2016-Aug-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — Last Saturday (Aug. 20, 2016), customers at Notting Hill Gate and Portabello Road Metro stores were invited to soak up the spirit of Carnival with the help of the Ebony Steelband group who performed outside the store.

For a real taste of the Caribbean, customers were invited to sample a variety of tropical punches served in coconuts, and snacks including tropical fruit skewers and plantain crisps.

The stores were also decked out with palm trees and oceanfront signs to complete the beach party vibe and face painters were also on hand to create glittering Caribbean-inspired designs.

Martin Smith, Tesco London Convenience Director, said:

“We’re absolutely delighted to be supporting this year’s Notting Hill Carnival and were thrilled to host our very own Caribbean beach party in two of our local stores.

“The festival is such a vibrant and unique London event and we’ve made sure our stores near the parade have everything Carnival-goers need, from rum cocktails to plantain crisps. Stores across London will also be getting into the spirit with amazing Caribbean products and promotions.”

Special offers on Tesco’s Caribbean range have been introduced in stores citywide until Tuesday 30 August, including Carib/ Banks Caribbean larger 330 ml two for £2, 5 KG Liberty Easy Cook rice price cut to £3.50 and £1 for three 330 ml Old Jamaica Ginger Beer cans.

Six stores along the Carnival route have also been given a colourful makeover with bespoke balloons, bunting and Carnival inspired t-shirts for colleagues.

Beginning in 1964, Notting Hill Carnival has become Europe’s biggest street party, attracting thousands of revellers every year. Held every August bank holiday weekend the carnival celebrates Afro-Caribbean communities in London in a haze of music, colour and fun.

We are a team of 480,000 in 11 markets dedicated to serving shoppers a little better every day.

Walgreens now offers flu shots at all of its pharmacies and Healthcare Clinics

DEERFIELD, Ill, 2016-Aug-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — Walgreens is now offering flu shots at all of its pharmacies, including Duane Reade pharmacies in New York, and at all Walgreens Healthcare Clinic locations.

Flu shots are available during all pharmacy and clinic hours while an immunizing health professional is on duty, including evenings, overnights at 24-hour pharmacy locations, weekends and holidays1, and no appointment is necessary. The flu shot is widely covered under most insurance plans, including Medicare Part B. Age restrictions vary by state at Walgreens pharmacies, while Healthcare Clinics can provide vaccinations for patients age 2 and older.

“For more than a decade, Walgreens pharmacists and Healthcare Clinic nurse practitioners have been a trusted and accessible community resource for flu shots and other immunizations,” said Richard Ashworth, Walgreens president of pharmacy and retail operations. “Every flu season is unpredictable, which is why an annual flu shot is the first and most important preventive measure to take to protect yourself and those around you throughout the season.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends an annual flu shot for everyone over the age of 6 months as soon as the vaccine becomes available.

Walgreens points of care will offer a number of vaccine options that may include trivalent flu vaccine, a high-dose influenza vaccine for those over age 65 and a quadrivalent vaccine which protects against four strains of influenza.

Bargains To Be Had As Shoppers Get Ready For Christmas And Save By Using The Latest Discount Codes And Voucher Codes Online

Consumers are expected to purchase more gifts online than ever before in the run up to Christmas, despite still feeling the pinch as the UK’s faltering economy struggles to pick up.

Sales via the web are set to rise by 16% this year and VoucherMole.co.uk, the UK ‘s leading voucher codes website, is urging Christmas shoppers to take advantage of the array of discount codes available in order to keep bills down.

“Despite people having less money at their disposal they’ll still look to splash out on gifts at Christmas as they won’t want to disappoint their friends and relatives,” said a spokesperson from Voucher Mole. “Also, young children don’t understand what a recession is and will still be asking for the same expensive toys – it’s difficult for parents to say ‘no’.

“That said, the beauty of online shopping is that discount codes are out there waiting to be snapped up and Voucher Mole can put them in the hands of the consumer. By making the effort to cash in as many discount codes as you can, costs can be kept much lower than expected meaning Christmas 2011 can be a good one.”

Meanwhile, Google has issued an article called ‘e-Retail Recommendations for Christmas 2011′ which offers advice to online retailers on how they can make sales to the bargain hungry user. They give three key tips, namely: businesses should prepare as early as possible (Cyber Sunday and Cyber Monday are on December 4 th and 5 th this year) and research what this Christmas’s ‘must-have’ items are; allay any fears about undelivered goods, particularly if there are severe weather conditions again; and ensure that websites are mobile and tablet friendly as more and more consumers are using such devices to shop.

“It seems that retailers such as play.com, HMV and WHSmith are keen to offer customers some good deals in order to ensure pleasing sales figures for this quarter,” added Voucher Mole. “With shoppers desperate to snap up discounted products in return, there’s every chance that – particularly regarding online retail – there won’t be the doom and gloom that everyone is expecting.”

Voucher Mole is a leading retail promotion company which features voucher codes, deals and offers from a wide variety of online retailers. Our team tracks down the best deals and passes them on to online consumers keen to save money on big brands. Voucher Mole is part of Wilsons Online Retail Ltd.
