Weis loyalty shoppers can now earn discounts on future shopping trips
SUNBURY, Pa. – Weis Markets on Thursday announced it has upgraded its Weis Reward Points Program to include the option of a 5% discount when customers use their Weis Preferred Shopper Club card and make a qualifying $100 purchase in a Weis Markets store. The discount can be redeemed on a customer’s future order.
“We are in the business of offering our customers more choices, both in the variety of products we sell in our stores and now in the rewards we give back to our loyal customers,” stated Brian Holt, VP advertising and marketing Weis Markets. “Our new 5% discount is designed to benefit our customers who’d prefer to save money on their groceries over gas purchases. Either way, they can achieve significant savings.”
The savings can add up for shoppers. “Weis Gas Reward points have helped our customers save serious money – the average redemption is nearly $7 on a tank of gas. We expect our new 5% reward to generate similar savings,” Holt said.
Weis Reward Points are offered to customers who use their Weis Preferred Shopper Club card when making a purchase at any Weis Markets’ store. The program also continues to offer a twenty-cents per gallon discount for every $100 spent in-store. Gas rewards points can be redeemed at Weis fuel centers along with Sheetz, Mirabito and Highs’ convenience stores.
Customers can also earn an additional 10 Weis Reward Points for every five participating Weis Brand products purchased.
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.”
