Sam’s Club’s latest health screenings offer to help destress parents during busy BTS period
BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Sam’s Club on Thursday announced its support for parents during the stressful back-to-school season by offering them a convenient and affordable way to make sure their own health remains a priority. The company will offer free health screenings to adults on Saturday, Aug. 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., while supplies last.
“As the summer winds down, parents typically focus on preparing their kids for a healthy new school year. We think it’s important for parents to do the same thing for themselves,” said Jill Turner-Mitchael, SVP Sam’s Club Consumables & Health and Wellness. “That’s why we are hosting free health screenings this Saturday for all adults, including members and non-members. We hope they help busy parents learn more about the state of their health and inspire them to establish healthy routines.”
These ‘Back to School, Healthy Routine’ screenings are free, confidential and available to the public at all Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy (613 locations). The screenings are valued at up to $150.
In addition to free health screenings, Sam’s Club Pharmacies provide other savings and preventive care to each community they serve, such as year-round immunizations for children and adults.
Amazon vet joins Target
Target Corp. has tapped another veteran of Amazon to join its supply chain team.
The retailer announced that it has appointed Preston Mosier as senior VP, fulfillment operations, effective Aug. 14.
Mosier will oversee Target’s direct-to-consumer fulfillment centers, as well as the process improvement, customer experience and product management functions related to direct fulfillment. He will report to another Amazon veteran, Arthur Valdez, who now serves as Target’s executive VP and chief supply chain and logistics officer.
Mosier spent 10 years in various leadership positions at Amazon building direct-delivery capabilities within a growing, large-scale operation.
Most recently, he spent four years with online auction marketplace Liquidity Services as VP of operations, leading efforts to improve profitability and capacity within supply chain networks for some of the world’s largest technology and retail companies.
“A top priority for our guests is to get what they ordered quickly, accurately and without hassle,” said Valdez. “Target already has a strong operation to move product in bulk to stores, so bringing the online fulfillment function under a specialized leader will enhance our direct-to-guest operation. Preston’s experience using technology and data to deliver smaller packages directly to consumers will help us continue building capabilities that will put product in guests’ hands even faster.”
CVS Health’s latest mobile pay solution integrates payment, refills and loyalty card
WOONSOCKET, R.I. – CVS Health on Thursday announced the launch of CVS Pay, a new, end-to-end mobile payment solution.
CVS Pay – now part of the CVS Pharmacy mobile app – integrates payment, prescription pickup and the ExtraCare loyalty program all in one quick scan at checkout.
"Over the past year, our digital team has brought to market numerous new digital tools – like CVS Pay – that make shopping at CVS Pharmacy easier and more convenient," stated Brian Tilzer, SVP and chief digital officer, CVS Health. "We've been excited by the level of customer adoption of these digital solutions and we will continue our quick pace of innovation and deployment to make our customers' health care experience even easier."
Customers can now use their CVS Pharmacy mobile app to streamline their checkout experience at the store – combining multiple steps into one easy scan. For customers picking up a prescription, CVS Pay offers a simple, private and end-to-end pharmacy experience. Customers will have the ability to refill, manage multiple prescriptions and get alerts when prescriptions are ready, all within the app – and then pick up and pay using a single barcode. Customers can also link their ExtraCare card with CVS Pay, meaning a single scan at checkout will process all ExtraCare deals, earn new rewards and handle payment for the transaction.
CVS Pay is currently available in select markets, including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware and a nationwide rollout is expected to kick off later this year. The solution is available on iOS and Android devices – the same platforms the CVS Pharmacy app is available on today – and works with all major credit (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express), debit, Health Savings Account and Flexible Spending Account cards.
