MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The holiday season is here, and Fred’s Pharmacy will offer great convenience and a wide variety of amazing deals for holiday shoppers. In addition to three fantastic days of savings, beginning on Thanksgiving Day and continuing through Black Friday and Saturday, Fred’s will continue to help customers save time and money throughout the month of December by offering great holiday deals on brand name products and popular gift options across toys, electronics, home decor, kitchen, small appliances and apparel.
“We’re expanding our Black Friday sale and are continuing it through Saturday with low prices and great deals,” said Bryan Pugh, chief merchandising and marketing officer for Fred’s. “We offer a wide variety of holiday gifts and decorations, and we’re looking forward to providing customers an alternative to large lines, big parking lots and one-day deals.” Because of its locations and size of Fred’s stores, customers can easily get in, select all the important items on their list for less, and be on their way. Fred’s is also providing weekly specials throughout the holidays in addition to its already low prices.
All Fred’s stores will be open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, and will extend the company’s annual Black Friday sale across two days, November 27 and 28. Special sales on Thanksgiving Day include 40 percent off all holiday outdoor decor, $30 off a VTech® stereo speaker and a Polaroid® 7 inch tablet for $49.95.
During Black Friday and Saturday, savvy shoppers will be able to take advantage of numerous deals, such as 50% off artificial Christmas trees, 25% off shatterproof ornaments, 25% off all toys and many other deep discounts. Preparing for the holiday requires many families to make multiple lists and stops, but this year, Fred’s simplifies decorating, gifting, cooking and staying healthy.
This year, Fred’s makes decking the halls, both indoor and outdoor easier than ever. By providing pre-lit and unlit Christmas trees half off, discounts on shatterproof ornaments, lights, wreaths and wall and table decor, Fred’s can help create a winter wonderland that’s easy on customers’ schedules and budgets. Fred’s also knows the importance of being the best lit house on the block and will offer deals on outdoor lighting, inflatables, pre-lit holiday figures and other outdoor decor. Decorating for the season does not stop with the tree; Fred’s is prepared to help customers set the perfect holiday table with festive table linens, dinnerware and glassware as well as great deals on folding tables and chairs.
Entertaining for the season would not be complete without preparing for family and guests. Sunbeam Electric blankets 25% off, flannel sheet sets 20% off and Children’s licensed blankets 25% off will keep the family and guests warm and comfortable.
Customers will find amazing deals on toys for all ages at Fred’s. Licensed products take center stage this Christmas with Star Wars™ and Frozen™ toys that make everyone’s wish list. Barbie®, Disney®, Sesame Street, My Little Pony® and Halo are a few of the brand names found on Fred’s shelves this season. Meanwhile, remote control toys are taking over land and air with Batman and Superman helicopters and licensed remote control vehicles. Younger children can have wheels of their own with Disney ride-ons.
For last minute gifts, Fred’s also provides customers a wide selection of favorite gift cards for restaurants, retail shopping and gaming and music downloads.
Fred’s has been hard at work to expand their electronics offerings this holiday season and is excited to offer the Roku® streaming stick for Hulu™, Netflix® and YouTube as well as Bluetooth speakers and headphones, multiple tablet options and many additional products to power on holiday joy.
To make gift giving stress-free, Fred’s offers a large selection of gift sets for all members of the family including bath gift sets for children, men’s and women’s designer fragrance gift sets, cosmetic and beauty sets.
Hats, gloves and scarves, fleece, active wear and thermals, pajama sets for the entire family and Memory Foam slippers are also on sale during the holiday season and make the perfect gifts.
Food preparation during the holiday can be hectic and there always seems to be one item left off of the list. Fred’s more than 650 convenient locations allow its customers the convenience of a quick stop to pick up last minute items. Fred’s provides the essentials such as piecrust, filling, Kraft® Stove Top stuffing, Sweet Sue chicken broth, Domino sugar, Gold Medal flour and Libby’s vegetables to round out a great holiday meal. Fred’s even makes cooking fun this year by providing a great selection of small appliances, ceramic cookware, bakeware as well as food storage options for holiday meal leftovers.
In addition to helping customers get all the gifts they need for the holidays, Fred’s Pharmacies are focused on improving the health of its patients during this busy time of year. The friendly pharmacists will be happy to provide flu immunizations to patients as they stop in and shop. There is no appointment necessary and immunizations can be free depending on insurance. Fred’s has greatly expanded its over-the-counter products to include new medications to ensure a healthy holiday. While patients are shopping, they can also enroll in the Time My Meds® program, a time-saving service that synchronizes all prescriptions to be ready on the same day each month, which simplifies life by eliminating extra trips to the pharmacy. In addition, 90-day prescriptions are also available. Details are available from any friendly Fred’s Pharmacist.
“We have expanded our health and beauty departments with hundreds of new products this year in an effort to help patients keep their medicine cabinets stocked this holiday season,” Pugh said. “We want our patients to focus on passing the gravy this holiday, not the flu bug!”
