3) Free doughnut on June 1. In celebration of National Donut Day, Dunkin' Donuts is celebrating by offering a free doughnut with the purchase of any beverage on June 1. Offer good at participating stores while supplies last.
4) Seen on sale at Marshalls in Marlborough. I saw quite a few cute styles on sale, many that can be worn right now. My big find was ladies running spikes by Saucony for $10. According to my daughter these are track spikes, so these will be good for those end-of-season meets or to stock up for next year.
