I find myself shopping at the Bon-Ton and donating to Goodwill Industries several times a year. This month I’ll be doing both but only having to visit one place.
The two are partnering for the semi-annual Bon-Ton Goodwill Sale, which will take place from March 13-30.
Throughout the sales period, those who bring in lightly used clothing and soft home goods to The Bon-Ton will receive a discount coupon that can be used online or at any Bon-Ton on nearly everything in the store such as women’s, men’s and children’s apparel, shoes, handbags and accessories at a 25 percent discount, home store merchandise at a 20 percent discount and cosmetics, fragrances, furniture, and small electrics at a 15 percent discount.
The items you donate will be sold at Goodwill stores.
Consumers are also invited to visit millionactsofgoodwill.com to register to play the Closet Clean-Out Giveaway Instant-Win Game to receive a 25 percent off coupon to use in-store or online and be entered into the sweepstakes. The grand prize winner of the sweepstakes will have the Bon-Ton credit card purchases made between March 4-30, paid off (up to $2,500). By entering, consumers will also have a chance to instantly win Bon-Ton gift cards.
The annual Wilkes-Barre St. Patrick’s Day Parade steps off Saturday and it’s always a good time for families.
If you bring the kids to town and are looking to grab a bite, head to Cork Bar & Restaurant, 463 Madison St., Wilkes-Barre. Owner Ruth Corcoran is serving up lots of yummy Irish food and drink specials and if you’re there from 3 to 5 p.m., there will be free kids meals.
With the party holiday upon us, the kitchens throughout the valley will be smelling like corn beef and cabbage over the next few week (Some smell this way year round). If you’re gonna be cooking some classic Irish food fare, Weis has an essential ingredient, cabbage, for 29 cents a pound.
Price Chopper’s circular has a coupon that will get you Shannon Farms regular or low salt corned beef flat cut brisket for $2.99 a pound up to eight pounds. No coupon needed for the same cut of beef at Shur Save for the same price of $2.99 per pound. Shur Save also has a loaf of Irish soda bread for $2.99.
If point cut brisket is your choice, Thomas’ Foodtown has it for $1.99 per pound and also features one of my favorites, Kerrygold Irish swiss cheese for $6.99 per pound.
What’s a party without some party supplies? Not much of one, I suppose. So head over to Party City today with this coupon: http://tinyurl.com/akor38b and get 40 percent off one regularly-priced item.
I’m often thinking Arby’s. Even more so with this coupon offer for a free small drink and small fries with the purchase of the yummy new Reuben: http://www.arbys.com/coupons/march-2013.html
If you missed out on the virtually free jelly beans at CVS last week, fret not. A similar deal is in effect this week. Buy a 7 ounce bag of Gold Emblem jelly beans 99 cents and when you use your CVS ExtraCare Card, you’ll get the full purchase price back by way of a coupon printed on your receipt for a future store purchase.
