Walgreens creates job opportunities for people with disabilities in Connecticut

BY Staff Writer

Deerfield, Ill. — Nearly one year after launching an initiative to help create more job opportunities for people with disabilities in Connecticut, 62 participants have completed training under the Walgreens Retail Employees with Disabilities Initiative (REDI) program.

The program’s goal is to prepare qualified candidates for employment at Walgreens retail locations, as well as employment with other retailers that require similar skills. Of those who completed training, 17 have already obtained jobs at Walgreens locations throughout Connecticut as the company grows talent and recognizes ability through greater diversity in the workplace.

Walgreens launched REDI in the state on Nov. 1, 2011. The in-store extern training program aims to help people with disabilities gain retail and customer service skills, and works closely with community organizations and vocational rehabilitation agencies to train and develop candidates.

This May, Walgreens launched the REDI program nationally. The first phase of REDI includes parts of Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Wisconsin, with plans to reach all states by the end of 2013.

BY Staff Writer

Long Beach, Calif. — Epson America, a supplier of value-added point-of-sale (POS) solutions, announced that Groupon has selected Epson receipt printers for its recently launched Breadcrumb POS system, an easy-to-use, powerful and affordable solution that runs on iPads for restaurants, bars and cafes. Epson’s most popular food service receipt printers, both the TM-U220 and the TM-T88V, will be available to businesses that order Breadcrumb.

“We selected Epson printers for their workhorse reliability and because they are by far the hospitality industry’s preferred brand,” said Seth Harris, general manager, Breadcrumb POS. “In addition, Epson has the global support and wide array of products we need to meet the needs of our merchants.”

A guide to ‘made-in-the-USA’ shopping

BY CSA STAFF

LOS ANGELES — While getting gifts at the lowest price is likely the biggest motivator for holiday shopping at Walmart, many will still want to know where those products were made, and that’s where the "All-American Holiday Gift Gude" could come in handy.

The Made in USA Foundation’s latest edition of the "All-American Holiday Gift Guide" shows readers how to buy American-made Christmas and Hannukah gifts, ornaments and cards, with sections on toys, jewelry, games and other items for men, women and children. Co-published with Made in USA Certified, the 115-page guide also includes food-related items, such as chocolates, blenders and stoves.

"Companies are coming back to the United States," Made in USA Foundation chairman Joel Joseph said. "Consumers are demanding American-made products, and U.S. companies are more competitive than ever in making high-quality consumer goods."

The guide is available on the foundation’s website and Amazon.com for $9.95 as a paperback or $2.99 as an electronic book.
