REMINDER: McLendon Hardware free Pancake Breakfast is back!

86th year for annual event; Starts at 7:30 am

McLendon Hardware in White Center is holding their very popular Pancake Breakfast event Saturday May 5 and it starts early at 7:30 am. Store Manager Sandy Simmons said, "The event is sponsored by Pennington Seed and Lilly Miller and the food is prepared by Des Moines Creek Catering. Everybody who makes a purchase gets a free breakfast of sausages, pancakes, orange juice and coffee plus a 2 inch tomato plant!"

Every year the company serves more than 1500 breakfasts at just the White Center location alone. McLendon Hardware has six locations in the Puget Sound area and will open a new one next year in March in Tacoma.

The store will bring out a Spin to Win prizes beginning at 11 am. Breakfast ends at 10am.

But the big draw for many people are the fuchsia baskets, specially priced at $19.99 (normally 27.99)for one day only May 5.

This is the 86th year of the event and it continues next weekend, May 12 with an even larger plant sale.

McLendon Hardware is located at 10210 16th Avenue Southwest in White Center.
