Safeway runs this offer on different house brand products over a 2 week cycle. Last weeks items hould continue this week. Whether the are still on sale is always a consideration in week 2. Items on sale in week one are usually not discounted in week 2. However, the house brands flyer that should have been in last weeks main flyer appeared this week instead so the sale items might continue this week as well.
Set your way back machines to 1963 kiddies. The Beatles have landed, Kennedy’s been shot, and a growing hamburger chain meets up with its legendary-mascot for the first time. Created by Willard Scott for the Washington-Annapolis franchises, Ronald McDonald looked a fair bit different than the clown we know and love today. Long before making a name for himself as the first roundish weatherman on the Today Show (who still comes back to wish birthday greetings from time to time), Willard was rather famous as the DC Area’s own Bozo the Clown. The local franchisee contacted Willard, one thing led to another, and the next thing you know someone is uttering the words “Introducing the worlds newest, silliest, and hamburger eatingest clown — Ronald McDonald!” Hamburger-eatingest. That’s my new favourite adjective.
Normally I try to change it up every week with our McDonald’s Mondays posts, however, this is a two-parter just waiting to happen. Tune in next week when we visit Willard behind the make-up nearly a decade later — not quite the clown we know today, but a lot closer than this drink-tray-hat-wearing lunatic in 1963.
McDonaldâ€™s Mondays is a weekly series of posts written by our own Jim Squires that initially appears on his pop culture blog fjetsam.com.
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(CCNMatthews – April 27, 2007) – Coach Canada, one of the largest motor coach operators in Canada, is slashing prices to offer super low fares between Toronto and Montreal. With available one- way fares as low as $10 plus taxes through the www.coachcanada.com website, passengers can begin booking on April 28th for departures as early as May 8, 2007.
“This is a very exciting initiative that we are introducing for travel between Toronto and Montreal,” says Coach Canada President James Devlin. “This type of fare structure program has already been implemented with great success in both the UK and the USA and now is the time to introduce it in Canada.”
The promotion applies a new pricing system dependent on seat availability for various daily departures. Passengers will continue to experience the highest level of service while enjoying deeply discounted rates.
Early shoppers will benefit by visiting the www.coachcanada.com website to look for the link to savings. Information on arrival and departure times will allow passengers to quickly book their travel from the comfort of their home, office or wireless handheld devices.
With selected fares at a fraction of the already economical cost of motor coach travel, there is an even greater incentive for everyone in Toronto to enjoy the convenience and value of traveling to Montreal with Coach Canada.
That’s right boys and girls, Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Sunday May 13th to be exact. But instead of forgetting all about it and rushing to the mall on the way to your Mom’s this year, we here at SmartCanucks are giving you a bit of a heads up — and a great gift suggestion too!
Full Bloom Tea is a really original product that would make a perfect gift for that first special lady in your life. Everybody loves tea right? How about flowers? Well Full Bloom Tea is both gifts all rolled into one. When you add boiled water, the tea grows before your very eyes into a snappy little bouquet. It’s not only for Mother’s Day, either. Full Bloom Tea has honestly replaced flowers as my “I need to send flowers” gift. It’s just too neat of a product not to gift. Who wouldn’t love a tea that turns into a plant?
Full Bloom has a number of Mother’s Day specials on right now, all of which include the glass teapot so you can watch the bloom as it grows. They start at $29.99 USD, but don’t let the currency fool you – they ship worldwide. If you’re just interested for yourself, they offer free samples. They charge $2 for shipping on the free samples, but they also provide you with coupons for your next order that more than make up for it.
