Retail Maverick Launches Revolutionary New Bag Brand Proven To Improve Your Posture

For Immediate Release: On the 19th of May 2011, The Primer Group of Companies unveiled Healthy Back Bag (“HBB”) to selected VIPs and editors from the nation’s leading publications at an exclusive luncheon held at the Cravings Restaurant, Shangrila Plaza, Mandaluyong.

HBB is an innovative new product that is not only stylish but also beneficial for the back. Developed in partnership with chiropractors and doctors, HBB’s patented teardrop shape and one-strap “backbag” equally distributes the weight of the bag across key touch points, contouring it to the natural curve of the spin to improve posture and the pressure typically exerted on the back, shoulders and neck.

Attendees were joined by HBB’s Global Director of Business Development, Ms. Nancy Evans, who provided greater insight into the brand and ergonomic design of the bag.

Also present at the intimate press launch was Dr. Jojo Gaddi, General Orthopaedics, Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine specialist from St. Luke’s Medial Center, who shared additional information regarding the health benefits of the innovative product.

Healthy Back Bag is available in a variety of colors and styles: Distressed Nylon, The Baglet, and Microfibre, and is exclusively distributed by the Primer Group of Companies at all Travel Club stores nationwide.
