I bought a Coach purse – my first ever. It was on clearance for under $200 at the Grove City Coach outlet with an additional 70 percent off, and I was so deliriously happy to see the price that I almost bought two.
I also hit the Banana Republic outlet and bought an orange striped shirt and a yellow glittery top — combined purchase under $20. I love the Banana Republic outlet. If you have never been there, you must go. I have bought a dress there every year — and they are so well made.
A quick walk through the Grove City outlets — and I mean one-hour quick — revealed a lot of great deals. Sidewalk sales with dresses, dresses, dresses. I have enough dresses for now, and I stayed away from shoe stores. But if you are looking for deals on summer stuff, it’s worth the trip.
I haven’t been to Grove City in a long time, and it was a terrific one-hour detour away from Interstate 79.
Here at home, it’s Greek Fest weekend, Roar on the Shore folks will be roaring into town, Frozen Safari is at the Erie Zoo and activities abound in our beautiful corner of the world. Have a great weekend. For me, it’s an anniversary weekend. Happy 11th anniversary to my wonderful husband, Kim Parker.
