Forget Blue Monday, it's Blueberry Monday
18 January 2016
Tesco is looking to put a smile on the face of thousands of customers as the country endures what is officially known as the most depressing day of the year - Blue Monday.
With millions of people feeling glum due to winter weather, failed New Year’s resolutions or just settling back into their work routine, Tesco is giving away free fruit at stores around the country. The fruit will be handed out between 3.30pm and 5.30pm on the day, and customers will be able to enjoy free kiwis, apples, clementines and blueberries.
Josh Hardie, Corporate Responsibility Director for Tesco said:
“We know lots of our customers will be making healthy little changes to their lifestyle during January and we wanted to do everything we can to help out. We know today is the day people are most likely to be feeling the January blues, and we hope a free piece of fruit will help our customers feel a little bit happier as they shop with us.”
Tesco is also hosting its very own pop-up Blueberry Smoothie Station in its Tooley Street Metro store in central London today. The pop-up will open at 7am in the morning and will be providing customers with blueberry based smoothies designed to make people feel happier and healthier.
