  1. I plan on just asking for the discount at the register. I realize most people prefer to support local businesses. 20% would be great! Supporting Local would be great too. So let’s plan to shop there on the 7th and 8th and promise to come back and shop again. (This is coming from a person who enjoys shopping in Ithaca Hours.)

  2. No, you just need to mention BACA Flower Power at the register. We held off on the flyers this weekend due to the rain, but will get them out Monday or Tuesday. And I didn’t want to broadcast the information here just in case there’s huge readership outside our neighborhood, and everyone makes a rush to get the deal!
