Walgreens introduces media recovery service for photo customers

BY Allison Cerra

DEERFIELD, Ill. Retrieving lost digital photos just got easier with a new service offered by Walgreens.

Walgreens’ media recovery service helps customers recover lost images and other files from memory cards or USB drives. The service is provided by FlashFixers, which supports recovery of standard image formats and camera RAW files, as well as most sound, video, office and graphics files. The recovered files are saved to a CD or DVD for customer pick-up at Walgreens. The customer’s card or drive is returned, and there is no charge if the recovery is not successful.

Recovery prices are based on media size and begin at $39.99. 

“Sooner or later, every digital camera user has the misfortune of losing a photo, and I know from experience this can be heartbreaking,” said Mona Kelly, Walgreens general merchandise manager of photo and front-end services. “As a trusted go-to provider of convenient, high-quality photo services in thousands of communities, we’re pleased to offer a solution that can help customers get back their cherished photos and, along with them, their peace of mind.”

Spartan Stores reports drop in Q2 sales

BY Alaric DeArment

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. The lackluster economy caused a dip in sales of nearly $8 million for Spartan Stores, according to the supermarket operator’s quarterly earnings report.

Sales for the second quarter of the company’s 2011 fiscal year were $602.1 million, compared with $610.2 million during the same period last year, though the lower sales were offset partially by higher fuel sales.

Profits increased, however, to $11.3 million from $10.5 million in second quarter 2010.

Say good-bye to bed bugs with ActiveGuard mattress liners

BY Allison Cerra

AMBLER, Pa. Allergy Technologies has developed mattress liners that are designed to kill bed bugs within 72 hours.

The breathable, thin ActiveGuard mattress liners can be installed onto a mattress or box spring by one person in less than a minute. The liners are comfortable and provide security that no other mattress covering or product can deliver, and they are ideal for college dorms and household use, Allergy Technologies said.

 

"ActiveGuard mattress liners are literally the only liners registered to kill bed bugs within 72 hours, and they can save consumers the cost of replacing mattresses and box springs," said Gus Carey, founder of Allergy Technologies. "The liners, fashioned as a simple fitted sheet, come in four easy-to-install sizes that fit any size mattress or box spring. [They] kill bed bugs [and] dust mites for up to two years."
