    We all have that concern, right?  That over arching possible thought that keeps you tossing and turning in the night and at some times in the day. It’s that thought of just what it would be like to be eaten by a dinosaur. For this sale, which we take very seriously, we want you to tell our cashiers which carnivorous dinosaur would you be most honored to be eaten by a Raptor, a T. Rex or the Baronyx and receive 25% OFF ANYTHING you buy that day. Think carefully because once that dinosaur takes its last bite, you’re through.
