Bring a gently-used coat to any Brooklyn Industries store on Thursday, October 23, and they'll give you $10 off the purchase of a new one. $10 isn't much compensation for lugging a bulky coat around the city, but they'll also donate all the outerwear they collect to charity, so you're really getting $10 and a warm do-gooder's glow.
