It’s never too early to start carving out some fall fun, especially when it includes saving money. And bargain hunters are always on the search for saving some green on the orange winter squash of the season — pumpkins! They’re not as cheap as you’d think — usually around $10 for a large one. The cost can add up quickly, if each family member wants to try their hand at carving out a scary or fun face in its orange flesh.
Others like to get multiple pumpkins for a little touch of fall inside the house or on the front porch. In either case, the cost of pumpkins is not always budget-friendly and that’s the scariest part of all for many families.
Well, King Soopers has all of your pumpkin-needs covered and just in time for autumn.
From Wednesday, September 23 to Tuesday, September 29, get a medium or large pumpkin for just $4 at the grocery store. Even better, they’re all grown right here in Colorado! This is the lowest price we’ve seen so early in the season and might the best deal of all leading up to October (and possibly Halloween.)
There is no limit, so you can create your very own pumpkin patch at home! The sale price requires your shopper’s loyalty card at checkout.
A healthy uncut pumpkin can last several months, when stored indoors. The actual amount of time varies, depending on your source — anywhere from two to six months.
The point is that you can buy them now and wait to carve them until Halloween gets closer. A carved pumpkin can start “decaying” with just a day or so.
Happy Halloween…too early?
