July 28, 2020 | 0 Comments

MarketPlace announced an extension of its three-times weekly 5% discount until the end of September.

A spokesperson said, “The MarketPlace today announced an extension of its three-times weekly five per cent discount until the end of September.

“The extended offering, which was due to end July 28, is our way of continuing to support our community. The discount was first introduced in April as a daily offering, reduced to three-times weekly – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday – in May, to ensure all customers had the opportunity to receive a discount during surname only shopping days and to support our community when they needed it most.

“The MarketPlace has a long history of supporting our communities, especially during times of need, and is therefore to extend the discount – in-store and online – until September 30 when it will be reviewed.”

Seth Stutzman, president of The MarketPlace group of companies, said: “We want our communities to know we are here for them. We understand everyone continues to feel the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, and not only those who are in the hospitality or retail industries, but those in all industries and walks of life.

“We hope this gesture combined with our savings initiatives will make life a little easier for our valued customers. We remain committed to being champions of our communities and the people we serve.”

The company added, “The three-times weekly discount extension is the latest measure implemented by The MarketPlace supporting our communities and offering low-price initiatives during these challenging times. These include:

  • “Every Day Low Prices [EDLP] programme – this monthly initiative aims to give customers access to a range of 20-30 quality items deeply discounted over a one-month period. New items are available from the first of each month.
  • “Value Bag line – this initiative provides customers with staple grocery items for $29.99, that have an average cost savings of $15.

  • “Daily 5% discount for recipients of financial assistance – daily 5% discount for recipients of financial assistance until the end of October.
