Consumer’s Corner

Love may be in the air for those who Cupid decides to smile on, but there’s also something else waiting through the streets of Brooklyn this week. No, not the trash – it’s the sweet aroma of savings. Let’s take a look.


Sure, you could do the conventional thing and get your honey a box of heart-shaped chocolates. But this is Brooklyn, and nothing is more dear to a Brooklynite’s hungry heart than a delicious, crusty bagel.

The Bagel Villa wants you to think bagels instead of hearts this Valentine’s Day. That’s why they’re offering 6 free bagels on February 14 with a deli purchase of just $20.

That should be a cinch since The Bagel Villa – in addition to its fantastic old-fashioned, hand-rolled bagels – is also home to mouth-watering croissants, danish, muffins, heroes and more.

Bring your appetite and fill up on Valentine’s specials from February 12 to 19. Enjoy Boarshead Turkey for $4.99 a pound, fresh seafood salad for $10.99 a pound, tuna salad for $5.99 a pound and more. Check out the lunch special – all panninis & wraps are just $5.50. Free delivery is also available.

Fall in love with The Bagel Villa this week. The Bagel Villa is located at 7221 5th Avenue. Give ‘em a call at 718-745-1175.


Entertaining at home for the holidays is a great way to save some cash. But a quick look around your place might scream, ‘makeover.’ Fear not, fixing up the place for friends, family and neighbors doesn’t have to be a long and intensive process. Why, you could accomplish a lot with a nice new set of blinds on the windows.

Budget Blinds offers consumers custom window coverings at very attractive prices. Choose from shutters, draperies, shades, blinds and more. To find out more contact Budget Blinds at 718-789-5500. They’ll be happy to arrange for an in-home consultation. Visit them online at www.budgetblinds.com.
