We Want Your Candy!

The Learning Tree Candy Buy Back: Tuesday, Nov. 1 – Saturday, Nov. 5

OK, OK, we just told you how we’re gonna help you fill that trick-or-treat bag, now we’re gonna buy it back? Yup, that’s right! Let the kids enjoy a few, then STOP that 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 it stays off your waistline, out of your kids’ teeth, and goes to a good cause.

Bring in at least 1 lb. of candy between Tues, Nov. 1st, and Sat, Nov. 5th, 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!
