Default price increase on canned goods...



Advertise Here

I stopped in at local Kroger store Wednesday and to my surprise the canned goods which were 2 cans for $1.00 were now 4 cans for $3.00. Prices on a lots of other goods were higher also. Now last week the same store did not have many of the canned vegetables that are now higher. Anyone else notice this at their local food marts? SEMPER FI

I work in a major grocery chain. The prices are going up. What use to be 1 item for a $1 are now going for $1.49 and higher. Some items are Buy 2 items and get 3 items free. Well the 2 items are the price of all 5 items. Don't get that one.

I've read on the internet that prices are really going up this winter around February/March. This is when the Wheat, Corn, Soy from th this past harvest are going to be coming into the markets. As we all know, these food items have increased this past sumer from 50% to as much as 80%. So inflation is on it's way. Is that what the government uses to determine if the economy is picking up? If there is inflation there is a better economy. Don't understand that one either.

I think the consumer instictively knows this, or has been paying attention anyway. That is probably why everybody is hitting the stores NOW and why "Christmas" spending is way up.

Just wait till the first of the new year. The "revved up" economy is going to come to a screeching halt. IMO
