Outlet and Shopping Malls

There are many retail chains that offer senior discounts at all of their locations. For those stores that do not typically offer a senior discount on a nationwide basis, it may be a good idea to check your local shopping or outlet mall. We have discovered that many malls across the US have senior discount days at most if not all of the stores in the particular shopping center.

These "senior days" usually occur once a week, but may also occur on a monthly basis, with the most common senior day occurring on Tuesdays. The average senior discount available is around 10%, but you may be able to find discounts at certain stores of up to 30%. Some stores may also offer a free gift or a two-for-one special to seniors on a particular purchase. Check the web site of the particular mall or inquire at the visitor's center for other discounts that may be available. You may be able to find special sales with discounts greater than the senior discount. Stores may have certain restrictions on particular items or those items that are already discounted or on sale, so be sure to ask beforehand.

The age requirements for these mall discounts can vary. Some may begin as early as 50 years of age while others may not begin until 65. Malls may also require that you check in at the malls' front office to receive a discount card or certificate to redeem the discounts. Other malls simply ask that you provide identification at the particular stores when you make your purchase.

Most malls have web sites where their senior deals can be found, but don't assume that a mall doesn't have a senior discount program just because it is not stated on its site. Call the customer service desk or inquire at the main office next time you visit. Some stores in a mall may offer senior discounts even if the mall does not have a senior discount program in place.

One of the largest chains of outlet malls that offers a senior discount are the Premium Outlet Malls with 37 locations in 24 states. Premium Outlet Malls have the 50-Plus Shopper Club available. Shoppers 50 and older receive an added 10% savings on Tuesdays by simply presenting photo identification with proof of age to the cashier at participating stores. To visit its web site, click here.

We have other mall discounts located on our site in our retail category. Click here. If you know of a mall that offers a senior discount and would like to tell others, please let us know and you could win $100. Click here.

Earth, Sun, Moon and Space Facts

Neutron stars are so dense that a teaspoonful would weigh more than all the people on Earth.

The planet Venus’s day is longer than its year. It takes 225 ‘Earth’ days to rotate around the Sun (a Venusian year) and 243 ‘Earth’ days to rotate on its axis (a Venusian day).

The Moon is gradually moving away from the Earth and the tides are to blame. Every year, the Moon moves 3.82 cms further from the Earth.

A supernova is the most energetic single event known in the Universe. Material is exploded into space at about 10,000 kilometers per second. All the stars in our galaxy (about 100,000,000,000) would have to shine for six months to produce the amount of energy released by just one supernova.
