BY Alaric DeArment

CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid has launched a new photo website that it said would make ordering prints, photo books, calendars and photo gifts easier, the retail pharmacy chain said Wednesday.

The company said items ordered through the website, Mywayphotos.riteaid.com, can be mailed to any address or picked up at any Rite Aid store.

"Rite Aid’s newly revamped photo website puts the latest photo technology in the hands of Rite Aid customers from the convenience of their home or office," Rite Aid VP merchandising Bill Renz said. "Customers can now more easily upload photos and create personalized photo projects of all kinds for truly unique holiday gifts."

Harris Teeter honors veterans with an 11% discount on Veterans Day

BY Michael Johnsen

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Harris Teeter on Wednesday announced that veterans and active duty military who shop at any Harris Teeter location on Nov. 11 will receive an 11% discount, with their veterans identification card, after all coupons and discounts are deducted.

"The company understands the major sacrifices military members and their family members make and the subsequent impact those sacrifices have on the community. That is why Harris Teeter has shown support for military service members and their family members over the years," the company stated.

This promotion is one of many initiatives the retailer has done on behalf of both current and veteran military members. Back in May, Harris Teeter sold $1 and $7 donation cards in each of its stores to raise money to purchase Smiles Over Miles account cards that were placed at participating United Service Organizations centers for use by U.S. military men and women. Harris Teeter also has been raising both awareness and money for Wounded Warrior Project since Aug. 2; a donation announcement will be made Dec. 2 at the “Acosta Believe in Heroes Tribute” in New York. On Nov. 22, Harris Teeter and MillerCoors also are hosting the second annual Operation Homefront Thanksgiving Feast, which will provide 400 military families at the Washington, D.C. National Guard Armory with traditional holiday dinners.

Walmart enhances shopping experience with new mobile apps

BY Allison Cerra

SAN BRUNO, Calif. — Walmart is looking to offer shoppers ways to access Walmart both in-store and online with the launch of new mobile applications for iPhone and iPad devices.

Walmart said the free apps are the first of several mobile products to be rolled out from the recently formed @WalmartLabs group under Walmart’s global e-commerce unit.

The updated iPhone app includes such new features as:

  • Voice: Users can add items to shopping list by speaking, typing or scanning bar codes;

  • Budgeting tools: Users can calculate total price in real-time as specific items are added to mobile shopping lists;

  • Manufacturers’ coupons: Users can view applicable manufacturer coupons for products carried in local Walmart stores;

  • Product information: Users can gain access product details, including customer ratings and reviews, as well as local product availability and prices;

  • Sharing: Users can email shopping list to friends and family; and

  • Store Item Finder beta: This feature will display in-store aisle location of products in select stores across the country.

Meanwhile, the new iPad app features the following attributes:

  • Touch-optimized shopping: Users can browse, search and purchase favorite items by combining traditional ways of shopping with the unique capabilities of the iPad;

  • Browse My Store: Users can select any local Walmart store to see product availability and detailed information specific to that store; and

  • Extended inventory: Users can shop and purchase Walmart.com merchandise, in addition to viewing local store inventory.

"Today, mobile allows us to have a similar personal relationship with our customers that Sam Walton had with his customers 50 years ago when he opened the first Walmart store," Walmart SVP mobile and digital Giby Thomas said. "We can greet each of our customers by name, guide them through our stores, and give them product recommendations and real-time savings — all from their mobile devices."

Walmart works a little different than other stores. You can always combine a Walmart Web Coupon and a MFR Coupon together to maximize your discount. The coupons are found on their website or check Printapons for coupons link
