Burke's is making an offer. Can you refuse?
To clear book store before its move to Cooper-Young, here's the deal:
On Wednesday, March 21st, everything in the store is 20 percent off the marked price. That book you thought wasn't worth it at $30? It may just be worth it at $24. So, take advantage of the offer. You'll be doing Burke's movers a favor and that could be you, a mover yourself, if you answer the call of Burke's owners Corey and Cheryl Mesler.
Theyre taking this unusual move: asking for volunteers on Thursday and Friday to help with the packing. And they're offering this as an incentive: to those who help, 10 percent off all in-store items for a year. Call 278-7484 for further info or go to burkesbooks.com.
