Product samplings of grilled chicken prepared with Lawry’s seasons and marinades, free drawings for gift baskets, and blood pressure screenings were also part of the retailer’s health and wellness-themed plans. Dental exams were to be provided to children ages 1 through 12 by the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures Mobile Dental Van, while the Pantene Style Studio was to let guests try a new computer-simulated hairstyle. “Unity Day is a tremendous celebration and ShopRite is delighted to be part of the fun, but it’s also a chance for us to share some information with our neighbors that can help them enhance their lives in a meaningful way,” said ShopRite’s spokeswoman Karen Meleta, in a statement.
