(PRLEAP.COM) Walk-in bathtubs-the tubs that the bather can conveniently step into and sit upright without worrying about slipping or falling-have been gaining in popularity. Their convenience and therapeutic value makes them especially appealing to the elderly or disabled. The Walk In Tub Shop, a Connecticut-based dealer and installer of these tubs, is making a special offer, beginning this Holiday Season: a free tub and installation to one American Veteran winner in its "Why I’d Like A Walk In Tub Contest" which takes place through January 2013.
The winner will be selected from entries submitted by Veterans themselves, or by their authorized representative, via email or U.S. Post, and received by The Walk In Tub Shop by January 31, 2013. The winner will be announced in February.
To enter the contest the entrant must be a disabled Veteran of one of the United States Armed Forces and the address of the tub installation must be within the States of Connecticut, New Jersey, or New York. They will be asked to write why they think a walk in tub would be helpful to them. Complete entry information can be requested by email at: email@example.com or by letter to: The Walk In Tub Shop, 41 West Main Street, Plainville, CT 06062, or by telephoning 860-810-2221.
"Our company has a special appreciation for this country and those who have defended it-especially those paying the price for freedom with wounds that leave them disabled," said Roman Rudyk, president of The Walk In Tub Shop, "Our company sells a product that helps disabled people enjoy the simple pleasures of a bath, so we thought this contest might be a way for us to say ‘thank you’ in some small way to the men and women of this nation’s Armed Forces, while also showing how useful these new style tubs are."
The Walk In Tub Shop is the only walk in tub dealer in the New York Tri-State area whose in-house installers are certified by the manufacturer. It takes pride in courteous, experienced service and a range of walk in tub products of higher quality than much of its competition. It also offers its tubs and installations at lower prices than its competition-up to 50% lower.
