Wegmans Discontinues Weekly Ads

Wegmans announced yesterday that starting April 24, that they will no longer be printing weekly ads.  Instead, they will be printing an ad about twice monthly.  According to Wegmans, this is due to their new consistent low prices on 40 Wegmans products which makes printing a new ad every week redundant.  They promise to reinvest the money saved in printing costs in their customers by keeping prices low and mailing coupons directly their customers.  To read the full press release, click here

We will all have to watch and see how this change shapes up for our wallets in Rochester.  As a sale shopper, I have to say I'm more than a little skeptical.  Let me know what you think! 

 

Wegmans Freezes Prices on Some Products

Wegmans annouced yesterday that is will freeze prices on 40 staple products through 2011.  You can check out Wegmans site to get a complete listing of products that vows to freeze

I was disappointed to see that all of the products appear to be Wegmans brand products.  Any experienced coupon shopper can tell you that by using coupons you can regularly get name brand items cheaper than any store brand including Wegmans brand.  On a positive note, these prices will be something to keep in mind for that rare occasion that you just don't have a coupon!

 

New Puppy

I apologize for my lack of posts this week.  We have a new addition to the family -- a 9 week old chocolate lab.  Needless to say, she's been a handful trying to get her used to us and teaching her good puppy habits.  I hope to get back into the swing of things next week with many more Rochester NY deals and bargains.  If you're a pet owner, I also hope to bring you lots of ideas about how to get inexpensive pet items.   Thanks for being patient!
