Walgreens offering added discounts to first responders
On April 25, Walgreens is offering special discounts to medical, police and fire first responders to recognize their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. After presenting a badge, the eligible recipients will receive 30% off regularly priced Walgreens store brands and 20% off regularly priced national brands. The workers present their Balance Rewards card, too.
Walgreens has named April 25 “Frontline Heroes Discount Day,” and the first responders will be able to get access to the discount at any of the chain’s 9,200 stores. With some high-demand, essential items, buying limits will still be applied.
“At Walgreens, we would like to thank all of the physicians, nurses, paramedics, police officers, fire fighters, and other health care and frontline professionals working to support and care for our neighbors and communities,” said Richard Ashworth, president, Walgreens. “We are incredibly grateful for the ongoing work they continue to perform during these extraordinary times and hope that this serves as a small token of our appreciation for their ongoing service.”
The store brands included for the 30%-off savings were listed by Walgreens as: A Little Something, Big Roll, Complete Home, Dashing Fine Gifts, Finest Nutrition, Infinitive, Living Solutions, Modern Expressions, Nice!, Patriot Candles, PetShoppe, Play Right, Smith & Save, Walgreens, Walgreens seasonal brands, Well Beginnings, West Loop, and Wexford.
