My grocery store, Giant Eagle, advertises that they have been lowering prices on hundreds of items. Awesome! That's all good and well until it's Not True. Example: I enjoy a carton of Dannon yogurt every day for breakfast (with Grape Nuts stirred in), so I usually stock up on quite a few. The yogurt used to cost $.50 (decent price around here). Then it went to $.57. Then to $.60. Today, it was priced at $.63 WITH a sticker that said "Everyday Low Price." Um, hello? Does anyone else see something wrong with this scenario?
There has been a 26% increase in the price of this product since they began advertising Low Prices! Sure, it's less than a dollar....but consider a 26% increase on your total grocery bill! Or Gas prices...er...well we already saw that, and then some.
Fortunately for them, I still bought my supply of yogurt. But I didn't like the price!
