As you likely know, health officials are advising against traditional trick-or-treating for Halloween 2020, so Lowe’s and Krispy Kreme have come to the rescue with a couple of alternatives.

“Drive-through curbside trick-or-treating” at Lowe’s stores will be on Oct 22nd and 29th from 6- to 7 pm where families “can drive up to receive candy and a small pumpkin at no cost to take home.” “While the pandemic has changed many elements of everyday life,” says Joe McFarland, Lowe’s executive vice-president of stores says in a statement. “The tradition of trick-or-treating doesn’t have to be one of them.”

Now, if free donuts sound too good to be true…think again. Krispy Kreme has announced their “Sweet-or-Treat” Saturdays starting Oct 10thand every Saturday through Halloween. With the purchase of any dozen, donuts get a $1 ‘Sweet-or-Treat dozen (it includes a not-so-scary edition Jack-o’-Lantern Doughnut). And if you remember if you wear a costume to any participating Krispy Kreme store on Halloween? You can also score a FREE donut as well.
