Since the Coronavirus pandemic came to America, you've likely seen a lot of talk about our essential workers - the medical staff working in hospitals, the first responders helping people in emergencies, etc. You've probably heard the phrase "now more than ever," a lot too, and I don't want to overuse it, but now more than ever, it's important to acknowledge how difficult their jobs can be and especially have been over the past few months, and thank them for all the work they've been doing to keep us safe.

To that end, a lot of places are offering deals and discounts for those workers - RetailMeNot has a full list of them that's constantly updating. Here are a few highlights from places that have locations in town or are available online.
