A Note About St. Patrick’s Day Specials
It is important to understand that deals may or may not be available from any given restaurant or store location. In some cases, a retailer or dining establishment may run out of freebie offerings early, so customers who arrive later in the day will miss out.
Additionally, independent franchises may choose not to participate in a chain’s sale or daily specials. If you have your eye on a particular deal, it is wise to contact your nearest location directly to make sure they are taking part in the St. Patrick’s Day specials.
