Winning Colours stain remover to hit Duane Reade shelves
November 8th, 2010
NEW YORK – Winning Brands Corp.'s Winning Colours Stain Remover is slated to be carried by 100 Duane Reade stores in New York City starting January 2011.
The Barrie, Ontario-based supplier said Friday that the Duane Reade drug stores, part of Walgreen Co., will carry the new Winning Colours Stain Remover 12-unit display pack containing 4 fluid-ounce bottles "designed for tight spaces and busy lives."
Described as an advanced cleaning solution, Winning Colours is a multipurpose stain remover and multicleaner that's also friendly to the skin, providing an alternative to conventional solvents, according to Winning Brands. The company bills the product, dubbed the "World's Most Versatile Cleaning Solution," as offering 1,000 cleaning uses in one convenient solution.
In addition, Winning Colours Stain Remover also uses 90% less packaging than conventional cleaners by being super-concentrated, enabling consumers to throw away nine times fewer bottles into the waste stream, according to Winning Brands.
"Some New Yorkers already know about Winning Colours for paint mess cleanups, but there are a thousand more drips, drops and disasters at home, work, for patient care and on-the-go that make this a great fit for Duane Reade shoppers," commented Winning Brands chief executive officer Eric Lehner. "The urban experience calls for compact, convenient solutions wherever possible. Reaching for the power, versatility and skin-friendliness of Winning Colours' 4 fluid-ounce handy size will be a natural thing for pharmacy shoppers to do."
In June, Winning Brands announced that Canada's London Drugs was the first pharmacy chain to carry Winning Colours Stain Remover.
