Retailers expand gas savings Override program

first_imgOn Feb. 27, the gas savings program that has put more than $10 million back into the pockets of consumers throughout New England returns to participating Shaw’s Supermarkets, Dunkin’ Donuts locations and Irving Oil gas stations.Participating Shaw’s Supermarkets will once again be offering powerful gas savings to their customers, which can then be redeemed at Irving locations throughout Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and in select areas in Vermont and Rhode Island.To make Override even more convenient, customers using their Shaw’s Rewards Card when they shop for groceries can use that same card right at the pump to lower their price of gas. For the past year, people participating in the program were issued paper coupons, which meant having to go into the store to redeem the savings.Now, with paper coupons eliminated, everyone can lower their price of gas right at the pump, saving both time and money.What makes Override truly powerful for the consumer is that participants who make purchases at a participating Shaw’s, or at a participating Dunkin’ Donuts in Maine or New Hampshire by using their Dunkin’ Donuts Card, can combine those savings to lower their price of gas even further. These two cards can be linked at Override.com, where more information can also be found.“This is the right program at the right time. It’s not a gimmick, it’s not complicated, and Override does not make you buy anything you do not want in order to save,” said Override CEO Mike Crosby. “Best of all, Override will bring people real savings just when they need these savings the most.”The program is simple: A minimum purchase of groceries with a Shaw’s Rewards Card earns savings off each gallon of gas at Irving up to 20 gallons. The savings increase if the grocery purchase is larger. At Dunkin’ Donuts, purchases totaling $20 earns 5 cents off each gallon of Irving gas.“Override is an innovative program that offers our customers another way to save in this very tough economy,” said Larry Wahlstrom, President of Shaw’s Supermarkets. “We are always looking to provide quality products, a fresh shopping experience, and, most importantly, ways to provide maximum value for our customers’ hard-earned dollars.

478 pairs of socks lends community support for Vermont Guard

first_imgThis month, 478 Vermont National Guardsmen will receive a free pair of Darn Tough Vermont socks thanks to overwhelming community support for a promotional program created by Darn Tough Vermont and Lenny’s Shoes & Apparel.In May, Darn Tough Vermont and Lenny’s Shoes & Apparel teamed up to raise socks for the Vermont National Guard. For every pair sold at Lenny’s stores in Williston, Barre, and Saint Albans, Darn Tough Vermont and Lenny’s donated a pair to the Guard. Their goal was to donate 300 pairs, but customers helped them far surpass that by purchasing well over 400 pairs, while many additional customers not only purchased a pair but also went ahead and donated that pair back into the program, doubling their individual donation.Darn Tough Vermont President Ric Cabot came to the Lenny’s store in Williston on Wednesday to personally deliver the socks before they are sent to the Guard and shipped overseas to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Cabot is well aware of the important role that community support played in the program. “People felt good about it,” he stated. “It’s a Vermont manufacturer, a Vermont retailer and the opportunity to donate to Vermont troops. There’s a very good, wholehearted, local feeling to it.”Darn Tough Vermont socks have supported soldiers for years and many units are already wearing them. According to Cabot, “Soldiers love our socks and we continue to get reorders. We’ve made investments in the company to continue to produce socks that meet the needs of our soldiers being deployed and on active duty.”Lenny’s owners Mark and Todd McCarthy were at the store on Wednesday to receive the socks from Cabot and they were also enthused with the success of the program. Mark McCarthy said in a statement, “Lenny’s was honored to be involved with this. We support the effort of our guardsmen and what they’re doing for us overseas, and obviously the ability to partner with not just an American-made but also a local Vermont company was a win-win for everybody. The response from the community and our customers in particular was just overwhelming and we were extremely pleased with how things went.”Darn Tough Vermont is a manufacturer of premium, all weather outdoors socks, with headquarters in Northfield, Vermont. Darn Tough offers products in six active wear categories: ski/ride, hike/trek, run/bike, lifestyle, hunt, and kid’s styles. In 2010, Darn Tough Vermont socks were approved by the Army for the FREE (Flame Resistant Environmental Ensemble) program and became the only US Army Team Soldier Certified sock. The company’s product is distinguished from industry competitors by: 100% USA manufacturing; small needle knitting which results in more stitches per inch and exceptional durability and cushioning; an exclusive blend of Coolmax® and ultra-fine merino wool for softness, fit, durability and moisture management; and a unique unlimited lifetime guarantee policy.

If they wish to discuss this action or have any questions concerning this notice or their rights or interests, they may contact plaintiffs’ counsel, Darren Robbins of Robbins Geller at 800/449-4900 or 619/231-1058, or via e-mail at [email protected](link sends e-mail).

CVPS operates as an electric utility company.The complaint alleges that the Board, aided and abetted by CVPS, in bad faith and for self-interested reasons, tilted the sales process for the Company in favor of Fortis Inc. and against Gaz Metro and thereby obligated the Company to improperly pay Fortis a termination fee of $19.5 million when the merger agreement with Fortis was later terminated after Gaz Metro made a superior proposal that was accepted by the Board.

The complaint seeks damages for the Board’s breaches of fiduciary duty in this regard.The complaint further alleges that on August 29, 2011, CVPS filed a Form DEFM 14A Proxy Statement (the “Proxy”) that omitted or misrepresented material information regarding the proposed Fortis and Gaz Metro acquisitions in violation of 14(a) and 20(a) of the 1934 Act and in contravention of the Board’s fiduciary duties under state law. The Proxy fails to disclose, among other things, material information regarding: (i) the Company’s current and future value; (ii) details about the sales process, including details concerning the favored treatment of Fortis, and the conflicts of interests faced by the persons involved; and (iii) the financial analysis conducted by the Company’s financial advisor. Without this material information, the Company’s public shareholders are precluded from casting a fully informed vote. The complaint seeks injunctive relief in connection with defendants’ violations of 14(a) and 20(a) of the 1934 Act.Plaintiffs seek injunctive, monetary and other equitable relief on behalf of all shareholder of CVPS who held CVPS common stock during the period beginning May 30, 2011 through and including the closing of the proposed acquisition of CVPS by Gaz Metro (the “Class”). The plaintiff is represented by Robbins Geller, which has expertise in prosecuting investor class actions and extensive experience in actions involving financial fraud.Robbins Geller, a 180-lawyer firm with offices in San Diego, San Francisco, New York, Boca Raton, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Atlanta, is active in major litigations pending in federal and state courts throughout the United States and has taken a leading role in many important actions on behalf of defrauded investors, consumers, and companies, as well as victims of human rights violations.
