A "24 Days of Buy Local Savings" Chamber of Commerce-sponsored flyer included earlier this week in the Banner Graphic is apparently causing some confusion among local shoppers and coupon-users.
The "24 Days" program is meant to feature a different special at a different business each day until Christmas.
Unless otherwise noted in the ad or at the business location, the specials are good only on the date designated by the particular calendar spot on the flyer.
In other words, the pizza specials advertised by Pizza King, Monical's and Humble Pie are good only as advertised respectively on Dec. 7, Dec. 13 or Dec. 21, not every day of the month of December.
Conversely, some of the ads note that their special is good through Dec. 31. That is the case for HOP Technologies' security system special, the Banner Graphic half-off subscription offer and Curves' first-month-free special.
The complete list is as follows:
Dec. 1 -- Putnam Inn: $25 in bonus bucks when purchasing $50 in gift cards.
Dec. 2 -- Wall Envy Photo: 50 percent off services for seniors, families and more.
Dec. 3 -- Affordable Framing & Matting by Wilson's Photography Studio: $10 off children's session.
