Halloween Discounts Part 2

In our last newsletter we discussed those discounts that can be found at many of the national retail chains around the country. This week, we look at the more general discounts that can be found at your local grocery and thrift stores.

Within the Retail Category on our web site, you can find senior discounts at various grocery stores nationwide. These discounts can range between 5% and 25% off the total bill. Some restrictions typically apply when using the senior discounts at grocery stores. Products like alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, gift cards or certificates may not be included in the discount. A grocery store's senior discounts are usually available on certain days of the week, although some stores may have a senior day only once a month. The most common days for the discount seem to be either on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. These discounts usually begin at age 55, but some may not start until 60 or 62.

If you plan to do some creative decorating or to make your own costumes, you may also find discounts at many hobby and craft stores nationwide. Like the grocery store discounts, they are usually for a certain day of the week, but we have seen some local shops offer a senior discount every day. The discount is usually for 10% off the total purchase and will typically not include sale items. The age requirements for these discounts will most commonly begin at the age of 55, but some stores may offer the discount to seniors 50 and older, while other may begin at 60 years of age.

We hope these discounts help save you some money this Halloween. To search for grocery and craft stores in your area, go to the Discount Search Form located on our web site, click here.

Have a great Halloween.

Halloween Facts:

1.1 billion pounds is the total production of major pumpkin-producing states in 2005. Illinois led the country by producing 497 million pounds of the vined orange gourd. Pumpkin patches in California, Ohio and Pennsylvania also provided lots of pumpkins: each state produced at least 100 million pounds. The value of all pumpkins produced by major pumpkin-producing states was $106 million.

More than 93 percent of children go trick-or-treating each year. (Source: NCA)

Halloween is recognized as the third biggest party day after New Year's and Super Bowl Sunday.

Since 1995, trick or treating in the town of Sandusky, Ohio, has been against the law for anyone older then 14.
