BY Alaric DeArment

MINNEAPOLIS — Target is adding fresh, handmade food to its small-format store in Chicago, the mass merchandiser said.

Target announced that Pret A Manger would open a location inside the State Street CityTarget when the store opens next July. The London-based café chain sells sandwiches, soups, salads, coffee and other items, and operates stores in several U.S. and U.K. cities and Hong Kong.

"We believe Pret A Manger will help us provide guests in downtown Chicago with the exceptional, complete shopping experience they have come to expect from Target," Target SVP grocery Annette Miller said. "Our Chicago CityTarget guests can pop in for a fresh sandwich or salad during their regular visits to our store for groceries or apartment essentials."

Target is opening the first round of small-format stores in Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles next year, with the goal of offering city residents, commuters and tourists the convenience of one-stop shopping, affordable groceries, everyday essentials, fashions and designer collections.

Weis recognized for firing up recycling

BY Michael Johnsen

SUNBURY, Pa. — The Professional Recyclers of Pennsylvania recently recognized Weis Markets for its commitment to recycling and its innovative program to recycle waxed cardboard used to ship and store fresh vegetables and meats, the grocer announced Monday.

In 2010, Weis Markets teamed up with Envirolog to recycle its waxed cardboard and produce Envirolog fireplace logs, which are sold in Weis Markets stores.  Typically, supermarkets send most of their waxed cardboard to landfills since it is difficult to recycle.

Today, all 163 Weis Markets stores participate in this recycling program.

“We are extremely proud of our store associates for making our company’s waxed cardboard recycling program a success,” stated Kevin Small, Weis Markets VP store development.  “This program has helped us reduce our store waste and our reliance on landfills. It also represents our commitment to finding new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and to improve our sustainability practices.”

Depression among women may pose increased stroke risk, study finds

BY Allison Cerra

NEW YORK — It seems that depressed women are at greater risk of having a stroke, a recent study has concluded.

Published online in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association, researchers led by Kathryn Rexrode, Brigham and Women’s Hospital associate physician and Harvard Medical School assistant professor of medicine, followed up with 80,574 patients enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study cohort — a sample of female patients ages 54 to 79 years without a history of stroke from 2000 to 2006 — 22.3% were depressed at baseline, which consisted of patients that currently reported or had a history of any of the three conditions: physician-diagnosed depression, regular use of antidepressant medication or a score of less than or equal to 52 on the five-item Mental Health Index.

During the 6-year period, 1,033 incident strokes were confirmed. Among those stroke patients, 893 did not use antidepressants, compared with 140 patients who reported antidepressant use. The study authors found that patients with a history of depression were at a 29% increased risk of suffering a stroke. Further, patients that were using antidepressants, particularly selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (also known as SSRIs), had an increased stroke risk of 39%.

Stroke is the third-leading cause of death in the United States, the researchers noted.
