Okay, okay, we just told you how we’re gonna help you fill that trick-or-treat bag. And now we’re gonna buy it back? Yup, that’s right! Some kids have their fill Halloween night, picking out their favorites and the thrill is gone by the next day. Or maybe you’ve got a house full of hoarders and candy rationing turns into a daily family battle with an endless trail of wrappers.

What to do with all that C-A-N-D-Y? Bring it to either Learning Tree location and we’ll see that stays off your waistline, out of your kids teeth and goes to a good cause.

Bring in at least one lb+ of candy between Tues. Nov. 1st, and Sat. Nov. 5th, during regular store hours and we’ll give you $5 Learning Tree Bucks to spend in the store. One per family please. We’ll box it up and send it off to be used in Treats for Troops care packages as a thank you to those who serve!
