First Responders Day today!

Today the industry would like to thank Australia’s medical and health workers, police and firefighters for their hard work and dedication to keeping us safe.

As mentioned on the Australian Retailers Association (ARA) website:

‘First Responders Day takes place in retail stores for one day only on Thursday, 25 June 2020. This event encourages retailers large and small to combine their efforts and thank first responders for their courage, commitment and contribution during the COVID-19 crisis by offering a special discount to these workers at all participating Australian retailers.

First Responders can visit the website or social media channels of their favourite stores to find out more about the discounts. Be sure to check the details on the website of each participating store as offers will vary from store to store.’

Participating retailers include:

  • Costco
  • JB HI-FI
  • Priceline Pharmacy
  • Myer
  • Target
  • 7-Eleven
  • David Jones
  • The Good Guys
  • T2
  • Many more!

Who is eligible?

The offer is only available to First Responders. This includes medical and health workers including doctors, nurses, paramedics and ambulance staff, policemen and women.

Additionally, the offer is extended to firefighters, as an acknowledgement of their work during the Australian Bushfires. ARA asks that First Responders bring a Photo ID which shows their work identity. Alternatively, they can shop in their work uniform.
