The Penguin has been spotted!

Posted June 12, 2011

It's official - the Penguin has been seen in Triangle stores! Not familiar with this fabulous bird? It's a coupon display that comes out about 4 times a year. It is actually a large Penguin with coupon tear pads all over its belly. They are all manufacturer coupons and they are generally for frozen foods and dairy products.

It has been spotted at a Lowes Foods and at least one Harris Teeter in the Raleigh area (North Hills). If you spot the Penguin, please post where you found him. I may have time to check out my local Lowes Foods tomorrow so I will see if the feathery little coupon creature is hanging out there.

Thanks to those who already posted on the blog that they found the Penguin!

    Too hot for the penguin in North Durham- was in the HT on Guess/Horton Rds today and he has waddled on to a cooler climate.

    Spotted the Penguin at Harris Teeter in Tryon Village today. Was underwhelmed, did snag two coupons for Sargento cheese $1.00, holding on to those in anticipation of HT's Super Doubles!

    I saw the penguin at my Harris Teeter yesterday in Durham: Homestead Market location, 105 W NC Hwy 54, 27713
    Coupons for Pillsbury refrigerate cookie dough, and Sargento coupons for riccota, mozzarella, sliced or snack cheeses

    The Penguin was at HT on in Raleigh on Falls of Neuse yesterday - Still loaded with coupons! He is almost hidden in the back of the frozen food section adjacent to the dairy dept.

    I did see a sticker on door in the freezer section of Lowes in Clayton about the penguin but did not see the little fella either.

    No Penguin at Lowes Foods at Hwy 42 and Hwy 50 today.

    Checked out 5 stores in my travels today! No Penguin at HT on 55 in Holly Springs at 9am. No Penguin at HT Holly Springs Rd/Sunset Lake and Lowes Foods Bass Lake and Holly Springs Road. at 5pm. Still no Penguin as of a half hour ago at HT in Apex, and Lowes Foods in Apex. Sneaky little bird is good at hiding hmm?

    There was one yesterday at the Harris Teeter at 54 and 751. Poor selection, though, so I have to wonder if it was the right penguin. There were only coupons for 5-6 products and as others have mentioned, they were mostly dairy.

    shay, I believe the penguin for June is geared to dovetail with it being Dairy Month more than what is typical of the winter Frozen Food Month promos.
