Valentine’s Ready?!?!!

small hearts

$130.97: Dollars spent on average by a person celebrating Valentine’s Day 2013

February 14, 2014 is rapidly approaching.

Flowers? Check.

Candy? Check.

Wine? Wine? WINE?!?!?!?  No worries there are plenty of places to visit and try the latest offerings.  Most of you have a favorite spot to purchase your “liquid courage.” Be it a local Kenwood or Binny’s or that spot around the corner, this weekend you will be bombarded with tasting opportunities galore.

This weekend stop by your favorite Jewel, Ultra Foods, Strack & Van Til’s or CVS (yes CVS) and try out some of the offerings from wines and sparkling wines to Tequila.

Don’t forget to take a look around. This time of the year stores begin to realign their inventory and drastically slashes prices on product didn’t do as well as others.  Example – a local Jewel-Osco recently sold Jack Daniels Winter Jack retail price $16.99, clearance $4.00.  (Really? REALLY? And no one called me?)
