Locals(the following applies to Fairhope and Orange Beach locations):

*Manufacturer coupons & store coupons (local grocery/drugstores/Target/Publix) accepted at the Publix in Fairhope and Orange Beach.

You can find a list of $/$$ here.
*No doubling of coupons or penny items at the Fairhope/Orange Beach stores.
*You do not have to buy 2 of the B1G1s to get the sale price. They ring up 1/2 price and 1/2 price at our local stores.
