(WXYZ) - Rite Aid is helping allergy sufferers breathe easier this spring by offering advice, free coupons and an easy way to check out the local pollen count.
On April 28, customers can stop by select Rite Aid stores to get free screening for the most common allergens.
"For the millions of Americans suffering from allergies, Rite Aid is offering more ways than ever before to enjoy their spring," said Robert I. Thompson, executive vice president of pharmacy for Rite Aid. "The key to successfully managing allergies starts with awareness, and that’s why we’re especially excited to offer free allergy screenings at select Rite Aid stores this month. Once our customers identify exactly what is triggering their worst symptoms, they can speak with their Rite Aid pharmacists to determine the best option for managing their allergies."
A nurse will screen customers with a Fluorescent Allergosorbent (FAST) Test for some of the most common allergens including egg, mold, cat, wheat, mountain cedar, dust mite, milk, ragweed and grass.
Free coupon booklets contain 24 coupons worth more than $33 off common allergy products. Coupons are available while supplies last* and expire June 15. Rite Aid has also brought back the popular Allergy Rewards Program where customers earn a $20 Rite Aid gift certificate for every $75 spent on select allergy products.
