MarketPlace discount to continue

A 5 per cent discount will continue three days a week at The MarketPlace until the end of September.

The offering was put in place from Monday to Wednesday at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic but was due to end yesterday.

Seth Stutzman, the 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 MarketPlace’s efforts to help struggling families include the Every Day Low Prices programme, which means up to 30 items per month are available at heavily discounted prices, and the Value Bag line which provides customers with staple grocery items for $29.99.

Daily 5 per cent discounts are in place for recipients of financial assistance until the end of October.
