Duane Reade had a special event happening last night at the store in Union Square. You could receive your flu shot and also have the chance to meet New York Giants player David Diehl! Pretty cool, right?
Once inside, I made my way to the pharmacy area where David was to receive his flu shot. Along the way I noticed a ton of promotion for the flu shot. There were balloons hanging from the aisles encouraging you to get the shot, and there were even stickers with the same message on the prepackaged sandwiches! Duane Reade did not miss an opportunity to alert customers and I think that is a smart choice.
I was told to get there at 6 to see David get his flu shot but for whatever reason he had already received it. I wish I was there to see it because I wondered how he would have reacted. Was he good at taking pain (I am not, I hate needles!) or was the shot no big deal to him? I was sent a picture of him receiving the shot though.
I was able to meet David, take a picture with him, and get a signed autograph, which was very cool. He was very friendly and I could tell he cared about meeting each person individually and speaking to them. I wish I had the chance to speak to him more. A line quickly formed around the table with people holding New York Giants hoodies and footballs for him to sign. People were all smiles that night, thanks to David!
Duane Reade is doing their part in helping you through flu season, why not do yours too? Go out and get a flu shot today, you'll thank yourself that you did.
