    Thank you for this valuable info. It is so convenient rather than playing a guessing game to remember who offers discounts on a particular day. I took my kids to Marks Feed Store in the Highlands. I called first t verify and my two children ate with the purchase of one adult meal. They offered a nice variety of kids meals. Thanks again for your effort on putting the list together.
