Google displays old specials for website

When you google my clients name Bakers Service Unlimited, you can see a map and then page links with a brief description of those pages.  The Specials page listed talks about an August special.  Is this a Google cache issue?  How do I fix this so it displays the current October special?  Here is a screen shot.

Looks like a cache issue since that page is from 10th Sept, which would mean Google doesn't see it as an important page for reindexing that often

How do I ask Google to recache?

Very nicely...

The best you can do is:
In WMT goto Crawl > Fetch as Google
Add the url and fetch
If successful click Submit to Index

Usually takes a few days.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I added her site and did the steps you advised.  When I Fetch as Google and type in the url for the specials page, it says it cannot be found!  I even tried fetch and render even though I am not sure what that means.  Got an error with that too.  Hmmmm

Whats the error?
You can only fetch urls from a domain associated with the account - even domain.com and www.domain.com are treated as seperate domains.

Sorry, forgot to include page of error. It says the page cannot be found yet it does show up on the web.  I am searching for the specials page because my goal is to try and get google to not display the August special but rather the October special.

That url has a preceding /
In the box you should be just entering
specials.html

How long should I let this simmer before I try to do it again.  I checked this morning and it still displays August specials.
