Dillons Stop #2

I ran into a different Dillons to see if they had more of the Back to Nature cookies in stock since they other Dillons only had two left (which I bought!) as well as grab the weekend deals! When I went to checkout, I had a TON of issues with the e-coupons not working and the cashier kindly tried to help me, but it was quite the fiasco. I ended up not getting the weekend deals on a couple of the items, but they were items we needed so I ended up buying them anyway.
