Black Friday is right around the corner. See it? Yep, there it is! Only a few days away! And you know what that means… the holidays are officially in gear! At least the Duane Reade Holiday Season is, but more on that in a minute.
Granted, with Hanukkah starting the night before Thanksgiving (all hail, Thanksgivingukkah!), it’s unofficially been the holiday season for a few weeks now. We’re having family over for both Turkey Day and then a few days later for our annual Hanukkah get together. So no matter what you celebrate, this time of year is full of it. Parties, that is!
If you’re throwing your own holiday bash, you may be surprised at how easy it is to shop for it. You might think you’ll have to hit dozens of different shops to get all the food, decorations, gifts and more. And you’re welcome to do that. Or, surprisingly, you can just hit your local Duane Reade!
In Manhattan where I work, there must be, oh, like 18 different Duane Reades within walking distance from my office alone. They’re everywhere! And it’s a good thing, because they also seem to have everything. Far from just a typical pharmacy (it does have that too), you can easily snag everything you need to have a fabulous holiday party!
Don’t believe me? Just take a look:
Chocolate and Candy
It wouldn’t be Christmas without candy canes, right? Hey, I’m Jewish, but even I have fond memories of visiting neighbors’ houses as a kid and snooping around their Christmas tree hunting down candy canes to devour. Now they come in all sorts of awesome colors and flavors too.
I once spent a weekend house sitting in Virginia with some friends over Christmas. The house had nothing to eat except for like a dozen big bags of Lindt chocolate truffles. You’d think eating like 50 of these in one weekend would’ve turned me off to them. Fat chance. I still love ’em, especially at holiday time.
They even make adorable little Lindt Chocolate Bears now!
From egg nog to soda to wine (even sangria!), you can fully stock your beverage bar!
You want snacks? You better believe they’ve got ’em. It’s just not a party until someone has orange-powdery fingers, am I right? Doritos just rule! Of course, potato chips, pretzels, popcorn… I’ll stop now before I short out my keyboard by drooling on it.
Ornaments, garland, Christmas lights, giant ribbons, glasses, plates, you name it. There’s so much holiday cheer around Duane Reade’s stores, that you can not only decorate your house for a holiday party, you can decorate your tree!
Stocking Stuffers, Gifts and Gift Wrap
Need a few more stocking stuffers for the kids? Or maybe a gift for a party you’re attending? There’s classic holiday movies on DVD, snow globes, chocolate santas, stuffed animals, toys and more.
Of course, whatever you do, just don’t forget the batteries! And yeah, Duane Reade’s got you covered there too.
So whatever your needs are, from gifts to decorations to snacks, Duane Reade definitely has your holiday party covered!
