This week’s sales are leaning towards Loblaws being a winner. Here is the thing though. Aside from the sales that I will list below, Walmart is always a winner for pricing. They are sneaky bastards with their advertising but they do have good prices. Walmart has been advertising their beef because they have upgraded the beef that they sell to AAA grade beef while maintaining the prices of the beef they had previously. As you would imagine, the other grocery stores have followed suit and have begun to advertise sales on their AAA grade beef. Loblaws has gone so far as to advertise that their AAA grade beef is Ontario grain fed beef.
As usual, I use Walmart’s pricing as a baseline because they’re usually the lowest. If I list it below, the store indicated has actually beaten Walmart’s prices.
