Encouraged by the response to its ‘buy two, get one’ offer introduced last year to celebrate its foundation day, Cooptex has launched the scheme for the second consecutive year here on Tuesday.
The offer would be available for 25 days in the Cooptex showrooms in the city, Collector Jayashree Muralidharan said after inaugurating the sale at the Pothigai Cooptex showroom in the city. Under the scheme, customers could buy a range of products right from sarees to towels. For every two sarees purchased, they will get a third one free.
The showrooms, she said, have been stocked with latest arrivals from weavers in various parts of the State including Coimbatore, Madurai, Salem and Tiruchi. Apart from handloom sarees, bedsheets, furnishing and curtain material, towels, chudidhars, night dresses and readymade shirts have been stocked up.
