Kohl’s is one of the only retail stores where savings average at 60%, and you can save even more when you have a coupon. It is beyond us how much you can already save in Kohl’s, but there are ways to expand your extreme couponing at this store.

The catch is this only happens a couple of times a month, but it will be advertised, so keep a lookout for this sale! 
  2. Price Tags with a square. If you notice a square in the upper-right corner of the LCD price tag screen, this means that the item has reached the…

If there is one problem that everyone has with Target, it is the urge to overshop! You somehow go in only needing one thing and walk out with a wagon full of items you never knew you needed. While the store’s giant selection is great, when you are working with a budget and zero self-control, you are going to want to stick to your list at hand. Last month, Target announced that it will be redesigning several stores and we think the new layout will help us all out!

Target is a one-stop-shop-all retail store, this even including groceries, which many people forget about. The retail super chain has a fully equipped grocery store section within their locations with a vast selection of food, wines, and fresh produce.

When you are trying to make the left turn onto Draper Place to Travis Avenue from Richmond Avenue, and it is completely backed up, the chances of this congestion have usually resulted in flooding from the previous rainfall we had. This issue has been on a constant addressing and the city has stepped in with a plan!

The councilman is fully aware of these concerns and has begun making a solution to create ease for Staten Island drivers. The city will raise the Travis Avenue roadway to help prevent the constant flooding problems of the street.

In early March, Councilman Steve Matteo, New York City's Chief Resilience Officer Daniel Zarrilli and the New York City Environmental Development Corporation came to an agreement and released a proposal…

After the excitement of local residents over Shake Shack’s announcement to open up in the Staten Island Mall, the company took to the demand and announced they will be opening up a second location that will be open for business before the first one announced location! 

In November 2016, we reported that the popular New York City burger chain, Shake Shack, will be opening up in the Staten Island Mall as part of the expansion project currently under construction now. While that location will not be open until 2019.

Declared to be Staten Island’s first location, Shake Shack will open next year inside the Empire Outlet Mall, which is actively under construction. The restaurant leased a 3,865 square-foot space and plans to be open serving their…
