Landrum’s Senior Wednesdays begin tomorrow

Published 5:49pm Monday, October 1, 2012

41 businesses offering discounts
People age 55 and older can take advantage of discounts in Landrum starting tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct. 3.
The Landrum Area Business Association (LABA) recruited 41 businesses recently to offer discounts on Wednesdays and has advertised the campaign in publications.
Landrum City Council met Sept. 11 and approved a proclamation declaring Wednesdays as senior days in Landrum.
The discounts for seniors range from 10 to 25 percent off on sales and services.
LABA President Melanie Jennings said the LABA voted for the discounts to be offered to people age 55 and older in order to include a larger range of people.
“We got the businesses together and decided we love our seniors and want shopping so decided to put the two together,” Jennings told council. “… we are going in a good direction here.”
Jennings told council in August that the LABA’s hope is for area senior buses to come to Landrum on Wednesdays for shopping.
A logo with bright red letters saying that business participates in the Senior Wednesday Program will be placed on each participating business door (see below for a list of participating businesses).
