Dominick's has an ongoing promo where you can get a large pizza for $5.99 on Friday's. Did you know that you can go in on Friday, order and pay for the pizzas, and pick them up on another day? We did this for my son's party. Ordered 6 pizzas on Friday (and paid for them) with pick up for Saturday night. Saved a fortune! These aren't gourmet pizzas by any means, but they are far from lousy and a lot better than frozen.
You may be able to do the same deal with their ongoing fried chicken specials (order and pay early, pick up later in the week). Let us know.
