Upper St. Clair Patch has suggestions for you at all price points!
While shopping in a local supermarket yesterday, customers expressed shock that Mother’s Day is this weekend. They grabbed gift cards and greeting cards in effort to let the special women in their lives know that even if the holiday was nearly forgotten, they were not.
