Given the ever-rising cost of hosting a Thanksgiving dinner, not to mention the ensuing holidays, it makes sense to look around for local ways to help consumers save money during the holidays. Here’s a look at some options recently spotted around Lynnfield.
Holiday Candles: The Yankee Candle on Route 1 South is having a company-wide buy one, get half off special. Their website offers more information, as well as online shopping.
Pocahontas Spring Water: This local spring has been in business for about a century and it only costs 25 cents a gallon – a fraction of the cost you’ll find from brands that come from other hemispheres.
A Lynnfield Delicacy: Karen’s Bakery is known throughout the North Shore for its monkey bread, a delicious soft cinnamon bread that is an old New England stand-by. Plus, it’s only $4.89. for a good-sized loaf that’s great when served warm and which can be either a dessert or a mealtime item.
Turkey Sale: One of the closest supermarkets to Lynnfield is the Hannaford in West Peabody, which had a Marval frozen turkey advertised at 59 cents per pound. However, on Wednesday the company's website indicated that the sale is now 49 cents per pound.
Time-Savers: If saving time is on your mind for Thanksgiving week, one option may be to order Thanksgiving side dishes from Lynnfield Meat and Deli. The place is currently taking orders for fresh turkey as well as classic sides like mashed and sweet potatoes, squash, gravy and meat stuffing. Call 781-593-6860 for information.
