at 1616 S. 8th St. Why does Starbucks get an article about its free coffee giveaway for a paltry two hours on March 15 (Business section, March 14)
For the past year since he bought the business, Clark has been giving away free coffee EVERY DAY. That's right. Stop by Pikes Perk if you want a complimentary cup of brewed coffee between 5:30 and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 3:30 to 4 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 to 2 p.m. Sunday.
And, customers can choose a 12-, 16- or 20-ounce cup.
The reason for his generosity is simple, Clark says. "It's the half hour before I close, and it's either give it away or throw it away."
Rates for certificates with a $500 minimum deposit vary from 5.6 percent to 5.8 percent with the anniversary bonus included. Go to http://www.ent.com/services/certificates.asp for more information.
