DUNLAP Concord band raising money with mattress sale

Concord High School's band is raising money through a mattress sale.
Posted on Jan. 30, 2013 at 12:00 a.m.

Concord’s band is having its first mattress fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, in the high school cafeteria. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the band’s trip to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City this November.

There will be about 20 mattresses on display at a cost of 30 to 60 percent below retail. Prices range from $199 to about $1,900. All types and sizes, including special sizes, of mattresses are available, including memory foam and memory gel foam varieties.

Layaway and delivery are available. The mattresses will be available about two weeks after the sale for personal pickup at the company’s warehouse.

For more information contact Scott Spradling, Concord High School band director, at 875-6524.

A renewed plunge in oil prices is a worrying sign of weakness in the global economy that could shake governments dependent on oil revenues. It is also a panacea as pump prices fall, giving individuals more disposable income and lowering costs for many businesses. Partly because of the shale oil boom in the U.S., the world is awash in oil but demand from major economies is weak so prices are falling. The latest slide was triggered by OPEC’s decision Thursday to leave its production target at 30 million barrels a day.
