Discount Drug Mart is Now the Exclusive Retail Outlet to Buy Tickets to All Quicken Loans Arena Events

Cleveland, OH - October 16, 2009 - Discount Drug Mart’s 58 northern Ohio locations have been named the new, exclusive full-service retail outlet to sell tickets to all Quicken Loans Arena events, which includes the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers, AHL Lake Erie Monsters, concerts, family shows and more. The partnership with the Ohio-based drug store chain was announced by Len Komoroski, Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena president.

“Providing convenience and superior customer service was a primary requirement in the search for the perfect retail partner for our ticket buyers, and that’s exactly what has been the foundation of Discount Drug Mart’s success for 40 years,” said Komoroski. “We can both celebrate our 40th seasons together now.”

Beginning today, the public can now purchase tickets at the Discount Drug Mart locations with cash or credit using the user-friendly touch-screen technology that will also allow them to select their own seats. In addition to the convenience of 58 neighborhood locations throughout northern Ohio, Discount Drug Mart is open 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. seven days a week, 365 days a year.

“Quicken Loans Arena offers the region’s most dynamic selection of sports and entertainment events,” said Discount Drug Mart COO, Doug Boodjeh. “Adding tickets to Cavaliers and Monsters games, along with concerts and other great shows at The Q to our one-stop shopping inventory, is very exciting for us and our customers.”

On October 1st Quicken Loans Arena launched a new way to buy tickets, announcing that the public would no longer purchase tickets to events through Ticketmaster.
