Goodwill for second hand & … groceries?

It may bring to mind images of gently used, hand-me-down cans of peas, or boxes of mac and cheese that came from the back of someone’s cupboard and may or may not have expired this century. But the backers of a unique new grocery store promise it won’t be filled with someone’s unwanted giveaways.

Goodwill Industries of the Valleys in Roanoke, Virginia has gotten the go-ahead to open what’s believed to be the country’s first-ever, full-fledged Goodwill grocery store. The city council last week approved a rezoning request, clearing the way for renovations to get underway at a former Goodwill repackaging facility and office building. Here’s the article from Coupons in the News.

Order your free Covid Home Tests!

I just ordered mine and it literally took seconds (thanks to autofill!)

Starting Monday, September 25th, people can request four free tests per household through covidtests.gov.  Officials say the tests are able to detect the latest variants and are intended to be used through the end of the year.

Earlier tests are expired, but dates have been extended on some so check the FDA site to see if you have any that are still good.

Packages of COVID-19 tests will ship starting the week of October 2, 2023. Once package ships, you’ll receive a tracking number and updates on the expected delivery date.

Celebrate National Cheeseburger Day

McDonald's is giving cheeseburgers away for 50 cents and Burger King has a free cheeseburger offer on National Cheeseburger Day.

These days, you’d be hard-pressed to find anything at the store for under a dollar. But on Monday, in honor of National Cheeseburger Day, McDonald’s customers will be able to get a double cheeseburger for just 50 cents, only 45 cents more than what the chain’s original hamburger cost in 1948.

Only customers who use the McDonald’s app will be able to access the deal, and it’s limited to one burger per person. According to the company’s official website, a McDonald’s cheeseburger typically can cost as low as $1 and as high as $2.79. Here’s the short article on CNN.

Birks: in your closet & portfolio

German sandal maker and in-again fashion icon Birkenstock has filed for an initial public offering, according to a filing late Tuesday.

The filing doesn’t list the number of shares the maker intends to sell or a price range yet. Filing fees were also left blank. The company plans to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol BIRK.

According to reports in July, private-equity firm L Catterton, backed by LVMH MC, -0.39%, was mulling over its options for Birkenstock, including an initial public offering that would value the sandal maker at more than $6 billion.  Here’s the Marketwatch article.

2nd Annual Nat’l Cinema Day = $4 tkts

Missed out on the summer movies? Or want to rewatch your favorite one? You’re in luck because it’s National Cinema Day this Sunday, Aug. 27, and most theaters across the country are offering tickets for only $4.

“Building on the unprecedented success of last year’s inaugural National Cinema Day, the Cinema Foundation is calling on film fans across the country to gather for a national day to celebrate the magic of the movies on the big screen,” said the National Cinema Foundation in a statement.

“The second annual National Cinema Day celebrates the power of movies to bring us all together, and discounted admissions for all movies at participating U.S. theaters in all formats (including Premium Large Format screens) will be no more than $4.”

Approximately 30,000 screens across 3,000 locations will be participating. AMC is offering ticket/popcorn combos for $5; B&B Theatres is adding 50% off all sizes of popcorn.  Here’s the USA Today article.
