Navarro back-to-school promotion gives back
July 27th, 2010
MIAMI – Navarro Discount Pharmacies has launched a back-to-school shopping promotion that includes local partners and donates 5% of the sales it generates to Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
The South Florida drug store chain said Tuesday that when checking out at the register, parents simply tell the cashier the name of the Miami-Dade County school and the donation will be sent directly to it.
School and grade-level supply lists are available at all of Navarro's 28 stores, as are the top 10 general classroom-related items that parents are usually asked to provide, the retailer noted.
Navarro added that its back-to-school promotion also includes other partners such as SpendforED, a local nonprofit dedicated to supporting public education that links schools with businesses and the local community to provide them with financial resources. The chain said SpendforED's EDBUCK coupons can be redeemed at any Navarro store. SpendforED is a supporter of Miami Dade County Public School's Foundation for New Education Initiatives, according to the retailer.
"The goal of this year's back-to-school promotion is to save busy parents time and money, prepare them early for the start of the school year and help out their schools at the same time," Cristy Leon-Rivero, vice president of marketing at Navarro, said in a statement. "We are committed to supporting education and creating a convenient shopping experience for parents."
Navarro said it offers one-stop back-to-school shopping for parents, including school supplies and hand sanitizers along with over-the-counter products, vitamins and supplements, plus convenient services such as free prescription delivery and photo development.
