Saving Discount

992 Merrick Road, Baldwin

Easy to find, since it’s visible from Merrick Road in the Mill Shopping Center, Saving Discount is a store where everything is marked $1 and up. Prior to opening it last August, its owner was in the retail industry for 15 years, working with major department stores. His resources and connections include wholesalers and distributors who can supply him with great deals and value. Thus, he can offer quality merchandise at good pricing.

 Inventory includes mostly brand name products that are manufactured domestically. The 2,200-square-foot store is stocked with a wide variety of household items, laundry necessities, hardware, and health and beauty products. If you’re planning to entertain, they have everything disposable, from tableware and paper and plastic goods, to foil pans. Their stationary section offers pens, pencils, markers, paper, pads, binders, folders and a nice selection of greeting cards.

 Children will enjoy their toy selection, and if you’re having a party or wrapping a present, search no more. They keep up with the seasons and holidays with gifts, cards, decorations and more. Right now, you can winterize yourself with a toasty new hat, gloves or socks. And currently, they are featuring goods and goodies for Valentine’s Day.

 Also sold are refrigerated drinks (soda, iced tea, juices) and of course, candy. Balloons are shown in a variety of styles and themes. On display are reading glasses and sunglasses, some wearing popular labels like Foster Grant.

 Saving Discount is located next to 24 Hour Laundromat. Parking is never a problem since the shopping center lot can accommodate 50 cars. The store is open everyday — 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. Management brings in fresh merchandise every week.
