How's the grocery prices in your area?

Eggs are crazy $5 doz. & limited to 1 or 2 doz. Meat seems alot higher. Milk is limited to 2 gal.
So who's making the money the supplier or the stores?
What what the deal with the milk dumping that was mentioned a few days ago?

My wife said it seems like prices are going down. At the deli you can't get fresh cut meat only prepackaged stuff.

Re: How's the grocery prices in your area?

I haven't been in a store in2 plus weeks. My wife has been ordering everything on line from the store and arrange for assigned pick up time. It appears the prices are starting to come back down a little here in Scottsdale. What is real upsetting is watching all the dairies dumping milk down the drain. They say the stores are limiting amounts that can be purchased, schools are closed and restaurant closures causing excess. Also not allowed to ship over the border. What a waste.

Awful amount of dirt poor people in the USA they could be shipping milk to. They likely don't have the illegal manpower available to package it.

Re: How's the grocery prices in your area?

The local Kroger has a “Seniors only” time set up each morning from 6 to 8.

My wife has been twice and says everything seems normal

This is the store at Woodforest and Normandy in East Houston.

Re: How's the grocery prices in your area?

I have Celiac disease and cant eat anything with more than 20 PPM so gluten free bread that I normally buy @ $5.79 today was $9.99 for a 14 oz. loaf of RICE bread it's a BIG rippoff as it is, deli ham & turkey today was $7.99 per lb. ea., Gson only eats Fruit Loops cold cereal and can't find a large box so been buying the smaller boxes but that means more trips, I guess it's a popular cereal? I haven't really noticed anything else getting jacked up so far, Hank so far we can still get fresh deli meats but gal told me today Winn Dixie will be closed Easter and that's a first, I was at Publix before WD and the deli was open with too many people in line, better meats over there IMO

Re: How's the grocery prices in your area?

Several of our local stores are doing the early morning senior shopping hours.
I think they should call it "Groceries for Geezers".
BTW I am in my 70's.

Just where did the term "geezer" come from anyway? (Asking for a friend)

Re: How's the grocery prices in your area?

The wife and I went shopping (the Friday before they extended stay at home another 30 days), at Publix we were rationed to 2 packages of ground beef, and all the packages were under 1 pound (all seemed to be .91 lbs), and $7.99 per pound. There wasn't any chicken at all, and the butcher out back was gone (at 2pm in the afternoon).

Italian sweet sausage (no limit) was normal price (package of 5 sausages, we bought 4). No paper products, low on lettuce/cucumbers, only packaged tomatoes, no potatoes, and most of the deli meats were gone. Most of all the flour for baking was gone (not that we use it because I'm gluten, caffeine, and sugar free).

We did buy lots of canned and frozen vegetables (I normally only eat beef, vegetables, and salads to keep my weight down).

We figured we'd "top off" as I suspected they would be extending the stay at home orders, and we figured we'd beat the crowds (we decided we were not even going to attempt wally world).

We estimate we can go about 4 weeks (we always bought in bulk because of all our boys eating so much).

Rick, the Florida Attorney General wants to know where the price gouging is going on, you should find the website(because my old ass brain cannot remember) and let her know!!

Re: How's the grocery prices in your area?

It is too bad the milk producers are pouring out milk, it should be distributed to every school, anything to do with kids, for free, to help those kids. Older people, hospitals, senior citizen centers, veteran's groups, other entities as well.

As usual, I just managed our once a month Reno Food Bank Mobile Harvest program yesterday morning, lots of eggs, medium dozed packs, nice oranges, cucumbers, apples and dry milk, peanut butter, and canned goods, and more. This was a reduced item distribution, as it was set up to ensure people honored the 6 foot separation edicts. Usually, this program also has milk, meats, corn, potatoes, other fruit and vegetables.

Re: How's the grocery prices in your area?

"price gouging" needs to be allowed. Let the market determine the value. If hoarders are buying things at a rate that you can't keep items in stock, raise the price so people only buy what they need.

anti "price gouging" laws are the reason shortages occur.
