Rite Aid’s Fight Against Diabetes Ramps Up
Rite Aid’s ongoing commitment to the fight against diabetes typically peaks in the fall, and this year is no different.
The company has partnered with the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and dLife to offer customers valuable information through the company’s Diabetes Health Education Program, which begins Sept. 27 and runs through Dec. 26.
A free Diabetes Guide, with solutions to help manage diabetes, is available in all stores and online at www.riteaid.com/diabetes.
Customers who purchase $30 or more of participating diabetes care products and submit receipt information through the Single Check Rebate (SCR) program receive a free tote bag filled with diabetes product samples and coupons.
Diabetes Solutions Days were held at approximately 300 stores in October, offering patients access to free advice from pharmacists, free blood pressure screenings and free product samples. Regular seasonal flu and pneumonia vaccinations were also available at each event.
In addition, store associates will sell $1 pin-ups Oct. 25-Nov. 28 to support National Diabetes Month. All proceeds go directly to ADA. Last year, Rite Aid raised more than $266,000 by selling pinups.
