Layaways Coming for the Holidays 2011

Layaways Coming for the Holidays 2011

As the holidays come near I figured it was time to let everyone know about the great layaway programs that will be going on this season. This is the time to start getting ready for the holidays and with these great programs you can get your holiday shopping done and be debt free. This is one of the things that I plan on doing to help with the cost of providing my daughter a Christmas.

Best Buy

Make a 25% down payment, plus a 5% nonrefundable layaway fee. Best Buy requires a minimum purchase of $250, but keep in mind that you can include several items to meet that total. Payments are made every two weeks until the balance is paid in full. Items that are ineligible for layaway include clearance, promotional, closeout and discontinued items.

Reading is SWEET! campaign ends Monday

ATLANTA -- October is both National Book Month and National Cookie Month, so why not combine the two into a sweet book drive?

The second annual Reading is SWEET! National Book Drive, sponsored by Great American Cookies, runs through Monday, Oct. 31.

Throughout the month, the stores collected new and gently used books to be donated to local charities and public libraries. Everyone who donated a book received a free cookie.

"Last year's Reading is SWEET! program was a huge success, thanks to the efforts of our store owners, customers and community partners," said Jenn Johnston, chief marketing & operations officer for GFG Management, which manages Great American Cookies. "We're excited to continue the event for 2011 and can't wait to see how many books we can collect and how many cookies we can give away."

Volunteer groups to beautify Dunwoody

Volunteer groups to beautify Dunwoody

DUNWOODY, Ga. -- On Saturday, Nov. 5, more than 800 volunteers will descend upon Dunwoody to spread their magic to all corners of the city.

The Clean, Fix, and Shine-Up Dunwoody event will begin at 7:30 a.m. at North Atlanta Church of Christ. From there, volunteers will go on to perform such activities as restriping city parking lots, cleaning street signs, working at local charities and picking up litter at the entrances to I-285.

In return, city officials simply ask that residents thank the volunteers when they are spotted performing their good deeds.
