BY Antoinette Alexander

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS/pharmacy is gearing up for back-to-school season with a new "Classroom Gift Card" promotion that allows customers to earn gift cards when shopping for essentials at more than 7,500 locations nationwide.

Running from Aug. 11 to 31, members of the ExtraCare program will receive a $5 CVS/pharmacy gift card after spending $20 on select items featured in the weekly circular.

Participants can choose to use the gift cards they earn toward additional back-to-school purchases, or give them to the teachers in their lives to help support classroom expenses.

"We’re always looking for unique ways to deliver value to families and teachers as they get ready to head back to school," stated Judy Sansone, SVP, merchandising for CVS/pharmacy. "Our Classroom Gift Card promotion offers CVS/pharmacy customers a new way to save on a wide range of back-to-school necessities available in one convenient location. Throughout the promotion, ExtraCare members can stock up on everything they need to prepare for the start of school, and receive a bonus $5 gift card to help save money on future shopping trips."

Customers can find qualifying products in the CVS/pharmacy circular beginning Aug. 11. Products included in the promotion range from backpacks and lunch boxes to school supplies, glue and binders from many national brands as well as Caliber, a CVS/pharmacy exclusive line of home and office supplies. Also included are household necessities and such grocery items as peanut butter, jam, cereal, juice boxes and treats ideal for packed lunches and after-school snacks.

All qualifying products will be marked as part of the "Classroom Gift Card" promotion. Eligible products will change each week of the promotion. Shoppers will have the opportunity to take advantage of the deal each week and may earn up to two $5 gift cards per week. The gift cards may then be used on nearly everything in the store, and can be combined with ExtraBucks Rewards and coupons for even greater savings.

Stop & Shop to close New Hampshire stores

BY Antoinette Alexander

QUINCY, Mass. — Grocery chain Stop & Shop has announced plans to close its six Stop & Shop stores and three gas stations in New Hampshire on or before Sept. 21.

“We continually assess our stores and operating performance. Our six stores in New Hampshire have not achieved performance goals after many years of investment, and we have made the difficult decision to close these underperforming stores,” stated Joe Kelley, president of Stop & Shop’s New England division. “This action will allow us to focus our investment and resources on continuing to grow our business in other areas of the Northeast.”

“We are sensitive to the impact this decision will have on our associates, our loyal customers and the communities we have served. We deeply appreciate the years of dedicated service our associates in New Hampshire have provided since 2003 and the loyal patronage from our customers,” Kelley added.

Stop & Shop stated that it will work with UFCW Local 1445 and state and local government officials to provide job search assistance and to support associates who will be impacted.

The company operates more than 400 stores throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, New York and New Jersey.
