Apteka.ru awards laptop to winner of the "Millionth orders" promo

October 25, 2016, Smolensk. - Apteka.ru, an online service that allows users to search and order* pharmacy goods, awarded the user that placed the five millionth order*.

Irina Lebedeva from Smolensk won a modern laptop, awarded by a representative of the Company.

The "Millionth orders" promo run by ** Katren JSC, the founder and owner of Apteka.ru, presented gifts to two users who placed milestone orders*: the two millionth since January 1, 2016 and the five millionth since the website was launched.

On October 7, the system registered an order* by Irina Lebedeva from Smolensk, which turned out to be the five millionth one since the website was launched. Head of Katren JSC branch Ivan Znamensky handed the prize to the winner: "We are noting a steady increase in Apteka.ru's popularity. Today, users in Smolensk alone place on average about 3,000 orders* per month, 74% of orders* can be picked up from the pharmacy the next day after the online order. We are trying to create a community with our customers. We regularly organize various promos for them and give away gifts to the most active users. According to the statistics, about two-thirds of all the orders made via Apteka.ru are placed by our regular users. The winner of the "Millionth orders" promo could be a resident of any corner of Russia, but it was Irina from Smolensk who was the lucky one, which I am glad about."

Irina Lebedeva learned about Apteka.ru almost one and a half years ago from a friend. Since then, she has already placed 18 orders*. "Of course, I didn't expect that I'd win the prize and had no idea about the promo. When Apteka.ru representatives called me, I didn't even believe it, but the call was later confirmed with a letter from the Company. I visited Apteka.ru, read the terms and then realized that everything was true. I am moving to Moscow in November, and a new laptop will be very handy. I often use the service; I order seasonal medications and cosmetics for the whole family. It is very convenient, has good prices, and orders* can be placed at any time. I can recommend this service to everyone."
