Help support The Arc on Younkers Community Day

Published 4:44pm Saturday, September 29, 2012

Purchase a Community Days booklet and show your support for The Arc Mower County.

Booklets are loaded with fantastic offers that will be available at the Bon-Ton family of stores during the Community Days event on Nov. 9 – 10.

Each booklet even includes a $10 off coupon that can be used on an item priced at $10 or more, a value worth double the $5 price of the booklet. For every booklet we sell, we keep the entire $5 purchase price.

The coupons in the booklet can be used at any Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s, Detroit-area Parisian or Younkers store or online for purchases of regular, sale price and clearance items, including 10 percent off electronics, fashion watches, furniture and mattresses. The timing couldn’t be better to get a jump on your holiday shopping.

Contact The Arc to purchase your coupon booklet by calling 507-433-8994.
