How intense are the grocery price wars in the Cincinnati area right now? Stores are battling for your turkey dollar, with prices actually lower in 2017 than last year.
We found shoppers at the Dent Kroger store, like the Williamson family, stocking up for their Thanksgiving feast.
"We got everything we need for Thanksgiving.. We are all stocked up," Mike Williamson said.
And for good reason: Kroger turkey is on sale for 48 cents a pound, which is 20 cents less than last year
"They even beat last year! I got it for 69 cents last year," they said.
But how competitive are Kroger's prices? We went price shopping to find out.
At Meijer, spend $30 on groceries, and you will find:
While Kroger and Meijer may sell the most turkeys in the Cincinnati area, there are other stores too that you probably don't even consider, such as Target.
Many people don't think Target for groceries. But at Target:
Aldi is another winner when it comes to Butterball.
Bottom line: All stores are offering great deals right now.
If you don't mind store brands, Kroger and Meijer are our low price winners for 2017, at 48 cents a pound..
For Butterball, Walmart, Target, and Aldi are lowest, so you don't waste your money.
As always, don't waste your money. _________________
