DSB they had 40 and sold out in less than 5 minutes....you need to be locked and loaded to get these deals, I suppose. Fun though , like an auction ...check out the Half price deals on 98Q and the left over sales for Driver Education and Positive Energy Dance .

Hi Andi! I did receive your email. But the place you sent did not have any sale or deal information online. Every week I check the websites and Facebook pages of popular places in Bethel for deals and sales. I can try to look for a better variety for next week, but do let me know if there's a better way to do this via the internet. Thanks for your comment!

I just found out about the 2 for 1 deal last night otherwise I would have mentioned it sooner! But it comes back often, so I'll post it earlier next time! They go so fast!

Hi Alicia: 98Q has not updated their site apparently because Joni Lowe sold Positive Energy Dance about 2-3 months ago to Kaysa Cruse & it is now called Form Fitting Fitness. I don't know if they are participating in any of the deals. http://www.formfittingfitness.com/

Thanks for the info, Alice.....so, that means that us working people who could really use that kind of break on groceries (what with paying $4+ a gallon to get back & forth to work), won't be able to, 'cause we're at work at 8:45 am. If this is something Bethel Food does on a regular basis, maybe they ought to think about sometimes running the special at a more worker-friendly time, like 5 or 6 pm?? Not all of us are stay-at-home Moms or Seniors or unemployed.
