first_imgA queue in the Healthwise chemist in Bunbeg.A promotion to give something back to its customers has seen queues outside one Donegal chemist this week.As part of their “Shop Local “ campaign , Healthwise Pharmacies have embarked on a series of mad promotions where one high profile product is hugely marked down each day on the run in to Christmas.On Thursday Abercrombie & Fitch aftershave RRP 86.00 was sold at €15.00 , On Friday Jimmy Choo RRP €55.00 was sold at €10, and on Saturday Jean Paul Gaultier perfume RRP €67 was sold for €10.00.As the public caught on , huge queues started forming outside Healthwise stores all through Donegal each morning , waiting to see what bargain is available that day. Even the local staff don`t know what is coming up in advance of each days trading, but it seems the public are willing to queue in the knowledge that something will be on offer regardless at the start of each day.Healthwise Pharmacies Director James Cassidy said “When we launched our Shop Local Campaign we decided we would have to do something special to make a real difference. Initially we allocated 25K stock for these promotions but due to incredible demand we had to increase allocations to avoid the perception that we were only providing a small amount of stock at these bargain prices.“Even after increasing allocations , we are facing queues each morning and the headline offers are selling out very quickly. To compensate we are choosing a number of other promotions which are introduced randomly during the day ,where big brands are sold at half price or less while still in stock.“In this way we are trying to make sure that those who miss out during initial queues , still get a chance to achieve a crazy bargain at various stages throughout the day. We have also price checked all of our regular stock to make sure that everyone that comes into a Healthwise Pharmacy for their Christmas shopping will find superior product ranges at prices better that any elsewhere. “This has struck a real chord with our customers and we are delighted that people are now checking their local Healthwise before going elsewhere for Christmas gifts, This year Shopping Local has really taken off ,with huge value being achieved by customers leading to great support for our stores. We would like to thank all of our customers for their support and look forward to a busy few days before Christmas.”Healthwise Pharmacies – Caring for your community.
