I'm "Officially" a Duane Reade VIP Blogger #DReadeVIP #DReade

I'm sure many of you already know but I still need to "officially" make the announcement *laughing* I was chosen to be a Duane Reade VIP Bloggers. Officially! I know many of you enjoyed reading all my posts about shopping at Duane Reade. While I will share a few more of those, I'll also share information and my insider "scoop" on promotions and products so you can be in know. So look out for those post cause Duane Reade is about to kick the VIP Bloggers program into full gear!

A few weeks ago I attended my first official meet and greet with the other VIP Bloggers at Duane Reade Headquarters here in New York City. It was nice to see other bloggers I knew and chat with online were also selected to be part of the group.

We then had a meeting with the Duane Reade corporate team about the goals for the year. Some of it is currently hush hush but as soon as I can share you'll be the first to know. Trust me. It's good stuff!

After the meeting the VIP Bloggers was treated to a tour of the Duane Reade 40 Wall Street location. This place is amazing. It has The LOOK boutique, up market, Pharmacy Rx, up market sushi, The Juice Market and Much More!

I was amazed at the The LOOK boutique, where you can get most hair services done. They even do a scalp analysis!

While getting beautified is one of the ways Duane Reade aims to helps it's customers, it's not the only way.

Last month, during the 24th Annual American Diabetes Association Alert Day, a one-day, “wake-up call” asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, 250 Walgreen’s stores announced a challenge to 250 Duane Reade stores in the New York metro area for a fundraising contest.

The challenge is about raising the most money through pin-up sales over a four-week period in the fall. Duane Reade will conduct the campaign in October and Walgreen’s will conduct the campaign in November. Money raised through the contest will support the activities of the American Diabetes Association Greater New York City area.

Both the Duane Reade and Walgreen’s organization has a long history with the American Diabetes Association with pin-up campaigns to raise funds. Duane Reade has also been integral in the movement to Stop Diabetes through involvement in a wide variety of programmatic outreach including the Feria de Salud health festival in the South Bronx.
