Labor Day means school begins this coming week for many area school districts, the college students are back in town, football season, and, yes, the stores will be pushing Halloween candy and decorations.

In today’s Times Leader, there is relief from allergy season. Rite Aid has Claritin, 70-count, on sale for $34.99, team this up with a $10 off manufacturer coupon and purchase it for only $24.99. Also, combine the $1 off in-store coupon with a $1.50 manufacturer coupon, found in today’s inserts, for Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy and pay only $2.50.
