Hmmm, it doesn't always work out that way for me. Last xmas the hams were at $1.49/lb; the next week the same hams were on in-store special for $1.99/lb. It's just like xmas where you're betting on whether the sales are going to come early, late, or ever depending on how merchants are doing. The economy is doing ok around here and I don't expect prices to go down after a sale. The best that I can hope for these days is that they extend the sale.
I think they are doing all right. They have put a lot of effort into their tech, and I am pretty impressed with their points programs and online stores. PC Points is a very clever program - it encourages users to buy the high margin stuff (all perishables) and PC products foremost.arnycus wrote: ↑Apr 8th, 2017 10:45 pmAlso when thinking about such giants as Loblaws, I wonder what is their real revenue stream given exorbitant number of various chains under their umbrella, and what piece of that pie their "founding fathers" are taking home? It must be just enough for a cheap holiday ham - what you think?
