ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Retailers are rolling out special offers for St. Patrick’s Day. Consumers are expected to spend a record amount this year.
“7Rewards and Speedy Rewards members can shamrock and roll with $2 off when they pick up their favorite 12-pack of hard seltzer in-store at participating 7-Eleven, Speedway and Stripes locations or order via 7NOW delivery to get in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit,” 7-Eleven said in a statement.
At Krispy Kreme, a new St. Patrick’s Day collection includes the following:
- Golden cookies and cream doughnut—A golden cookie cream-filled doughnut shell dipped in white icing and covered in golden cookie pieces and a gold sprinkle blend.
- Hat O’ Gold Doughnut—A chocolate iced doughnut decorated with a plaid green icing pattern and topped with a leprechaun hat sugar piece.
- Golden Sprinkle Doughnut—An Original Glazed doughnut dipped in green icing and topped with a gold St. Patrick’s Day sprinkle blend.
- Rainbow Kreme Filled Doughnut—An unglazed shell filled with white cream topped with green icing and decorated with a rainbow sugar piece, vanilla buttercream and gold coin sprinkles.
On March 16 and 17, Krispy Kreme will also bring back the O’riginal Glazed doughnut—an Original Glazed doughnut gone green, available by the dozen. Guests wearing green who visit Krispy Kreme shops on either day (in-shop or drive-thru) can receive one free O’riginal Glazed doughnut, no purchase necessary.
Elsewhere, in a novel twist on St. Patrick’s Day merchandise, Trader Joe’s will be selling shamrock potted plants.
