HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the moms and expectant mothers out there. Becoming a mom is an expensive endeavor and as a gift, here are some sites that cater to saving you money.
One company that could be a real cash-saver can be found right here in Luzerne County. While the rest of the world has been able to find great deals online at babyage.com, you can get those same bargains and not have to pay shipping. Just head over to the company’s outlet store at 370 Stewart Road in the Hanover Industrial Park. The store is open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays. Prices at the outlet store are up to 50 percent cheaper than the already reasonable rates offered on the Web site. Take a drive over, or if you don’t mind the shipping costs, ride the information superhighway.
