Last week I told y'all that the South Plains Mall is celebrating 50 years this week. Well, it just got even better: you can get super-cheap Chick-fil-A.

In honor of being with the mall since it opened, Chick-fil-A will be reducing the cost of the classic chicken sandwich to $.59 ONLY on Saturday, July 30th.

They're doing it because that's the same price it cost for the sandwich back when they first opened back in 1972.

Chick-fil-A also said in a news release that the offer will be limited to two chicken sandwiches per transaction.

"This is our way of saying thanks for 50 incredible years,” said Brandon Mulkey, local franchise operator of Chick-fil-A South Plains Mall. “We wouldn’t be here without the support of the Lubbock community, and we’re excited to celebrate this landmark anniversary with our guests.”

This is so exciting and something you don't want to miss out on because they never do this. The offer will be valid from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Chick-fil-A inside the South Plains Mall at 6002 Slide Road, while supplies last.

There will be a lot more awesome events are Saturday along with it.

To celebrate its 50th birthday, the South Plains Mall will be holding lots of events, sales and fundraisers. They will be doing a get one, give one denim and donation drive, a back-to-school blood drive, a summer kids fest and so much more.

The birthday party itself will be on July 26th from 4 to 6 p.m., where folks can enjoy treats, eats, music and trivia. The big event will be held on July 30th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Grand Court in the South Plains Mall. Here's the rundown of events planned for that day:
