Waters True Value and Walk A Mile in Her Shoes of Central Kansas have teamed up for an awareness event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 13, in the Waters True Value parking lot, 1649 West K-96, Great Bend.
Chips, brats, hotdogs, cookies and bottled water will be available until 2 p.m. for $2 a plate, and patrons can enjoy a smaller bill at the register should they choose to shop, as Saturday is also No Sales Tax Day.
That’s a savings of 8.05 per cent. Other businesses in Great Bend will also participate in No Sale Tax Day.
Male Walk A Mile in Her Shoes planning committee members will be walking in red stilettos as they practice for the April 18 Walk A Mile In Her Shoes main event.
Waters True Value is also currently running a $1,000, $500 and $250 shopping spree promotion through April 21 to benefit the Family Crisis Center, Relay for Life and Kans for Kids.
Correctly guess how many total nuts, bolts, and screws are in the container at the front of the store (without going over) and win an in store shopping spree. Winners will select which charity will get which matching prize. All three charities will receive one of the matching amounts.
