Food Lion giving $5 discount to mummy show

Nothing goes with groceries quite like mummies, and Food Lion is offering a $5 discount on admission to Discovery Place's Mummies of the World exhibit.

The exhibit runs through April 8, and includes some 150 mummies and mummy-related artifacts as old as 6,500 years.

Food Lion is based in Salisbury, and is a subsidiary of Belgian supermarket conglomerate Delhaize. The coupon is also in its weekly circular, in addition to being available online.

The Mummies of the World exhibit costs $24 for adults, $20 for college students and senior citizens, and $18 for kids. An audio tour costs an additional $5. The $5 discount from Food Lion applies to full-priced tickets with audio tours, so it's essentially a free audio tour. The promotion runs through March 23.

I don't know about the public opinion but I have been to Discovery on three separate trips and have been less than impressed with the presentation of items, or the exhibit itself. When put in combination with price I will have to pass. For my family of four it will cosr $84 to see this thing. Offering a discount at full price with audio it just tacky...I could see a Checkers or Bobcats game for less or even go to the Mint Museum for less. Just awful, Discovery.

Strange, most people would JUMP at the ability to pay the same thing and get more for it.
