Shane Perkins, a freshman biology major, looks at the options available Tuesday at the truck-load sale organized by Sodexho Marriott Services. Free popcorn and snow cones will be given away for the second day in a row today in the Reed-Sadler mall as part of the on-going sale, said Imogene Bundage, retail manager. Designed to give students with excess money on their meal cards a chance to buy bulk items, Bundage said all the items offered are 5 percent off the normal retail price. “Most of the Gatorade, soft drinks and Red Bull seem to be selling well, but we’ll have plenty more to sell (today) too,” she said. “We have cases of everything from laundry detergent to snacks.” The sale will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.
