A Connecticut-based business is making an offer that should be of great interest to area disabled American Veterans. Walk-in bathtubs-the tubs that the bather can easily step into and sit upright with less worry about slipping or falling are especially appealing to the elderly or disabled. The Walk In Tub Shop, a Connecticut-based, certified dealer and installer of these tubs, is making a special offer: a free walk in tub, including installation, to one American Veteran winner in its "Why I'd Like A Walk In Tub" Contest. There is no cost or obligation to enter.

The contest runs through February 2013. To enter the applicant must be a disabled Veteran of one of the U.S. Armed Forces and the address of the proposed tub installation must be within the States of Connecticut, New Jersey, or New York. The applicant will be asked to write why they think a walk in tub would be helpful to him or her. Applicants can apply online at Or entry information can be requested by email at: or by letter to: The Walk In Tub Shop, 41 West Main Street, Plainville, CT 06062, or by telephoning 860-810-2221.

The winner will be selected from entries submitted by Veterans, or their authorized representative, via email or U.S. Post, and postmarked or received by The Walk In Tub Shop by February 28, 2013. (The contest has been extended from its former deadline of January.) The winner will be announced in March.

"Our company has a special appreciation for this country and those who defend 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, 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.
