At the Shoppers Plaza Rite Aid, many of the $1 products were 50% off. It looked like a general clearance throughout the store with many items 75% (for example, Lacross barber scisssors that were regularly $8.95 on clearance for $2.23. Also, if you spent $100, you received a $20 reward to spend in the store on your next shopping trip.
