Know the Community is all about helping you get connected to your community, and one way is to clue you in on some local knowledge!
HERE’S A LIST OF SOME THINGS WE FOUND OUT AFTER WE BECAME OFFICIAL “LOCALS.” TAKE SOME TIME AND EXPLORE THESE LOCAL SECRETS.
1. Garage sales take place all year long. Grab the Friday or Saturday paper and mark your route. The sales typically start at 6:00 a.m. and end by 10:30 a.m. Everything is negotiable- you might score some real treasures!
2. The Montgomery City-County Public Library offers a free online book checkout service.
3. During a Publix BOGO sale, you don’t have to purchase two items to receive the discount! BOGO items each ring 50% off the regular price.
4. The Montgomery Humane Society offers gift-wrapping each Christmas to raise money for the organization and its animals. Save yourself some time and help out some furry friends!
5. The best seats for watching fireworks downtown are on the Riverwalk Stadium lawn.
6. Adams Drugs gives free children’s vitamins each month, for each of your children! They also offer prescription delivery to your home.
7. Skip the landfill! Chik-fil-A will give you an ice cream cone instead of the kids meal toy.
8. For every “A” or equivalent on your child’s report card, Krispy Kreme will reward them with a free doughnut.
9. Beat the southern heat and play indoors at Rockin’ Jump, or MMFA Artworks for Kids.
10. Summer children’s matinees only cost $2 at the Capri Theatre, with $0.50 soda and popcorn.
