What other freebies are there? Weighing scale, maybe? what else? Seriously.
Shoppers drug mart in Canada also offers this. Free BP checking, weight etc when you are waiting to collect the prescription drugs.

Tell me more about the "etc." What other freebies? And what kind of BP instrument? Electronic (also tells you the temperature) ? Like a wrist pad, not the old sphygmomanometer?

Ect: You can check your body temperature, they also have that blood test machine/thing for diabetics, half the time you also find samples for home pregnancy tests, diapers. As far as BP and diabetics are concerned many people use that.
I am not sure how to explain how the BP checking machine looks like. It has a small pad in which you keep your arm. Then click a button and and in seconds it expands and then the reading is given in an electronic monitor.

Wow, free blood sugar testing!! wonder how they do it, maybe tie-up with some pharma company. Here it would cost min 20Rs a test..

Samajh gaya.. Got it. Have seen those machines.
This weighing scale thing sounds good. Not very costly too, maybe Rs. 1000-1500. Good advt.

Good thought to sleep on.. Chalo abhi apun jata hai.. 3.45am already!!
Sprite, You really must get over this EC addiction of yours.

Not really doing night shift, if that's what you mean. My shops run from 8am to 9pm. But night is my personal space, and I do get some work done too, checking registers- surely and also some installations, minor repairs etc. that needs my hand. Chalo, g'night.
