Kids Eat Free
In the new comedy Tully, Marlo (Charlize Theron), a mother of three including a newborn baby, is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass).

Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply is celebrating its 24nd anniversary with tons of deals on its clothing, jeans, footwear, rugged tools, automotive items, toys, gift items and farm and ranch supplies — of special interest to the growing number of suburban and even urban backyard farms.

Get ready, bargain hunters! We expected some Rite Aid locations to close, when Walgreens bought more than 1,000 of its stores last fall. And, apparently, it’s starting. According to our sources, as of now, this is the only Rite Aid location in the Denver metro area closing — 11907 W. Alameda Pkwy. in Lakewood.
The store will officially shutter on May 16. We’ve personally investigated the sale and it’s a little weird. It seems half the store is part close-out sale and the other half is “business as usual” (with regular and sale prices still in effect.)
You can still use manufacturer’s coupons, according to one of the managers. However, to get all of the close-out prices, you must use your shopper’s loyalty card, Wellness+ Rewards. [Read More…]

For Prince fans, April 21st will always be a sad day. It’s hard to believe the musical icon has been gone for two years now. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate his music and life than seeing his iconic film “Purple Rain.”
