Where are the Turkey deals? (Quebec)

Thanksgiving is next Monday and none of the new flyers have specials on Turkey. Do people not eat Turkey for Thanksgiving anymore? Wal-Mart has the same $10-$15-$20 turkey promo they had last week (which is pretty useless unless you shop at 8:00 AM). The store in my area only puts out a few and they're gone in minutes. The new Metro Quebec flyer has Butterball's for $1.99 a pound which seems expensive. Super C, Maxi, Loblaws, etc don't even have Turkeys in their new flyer.

If you get a 4KG bird for 10$ from Walmart, you pay 1.14$/lbs, which isn't bad. It's about on par with how our currency fell since a year ago.

However, you are right that it is strange that only Walmart is doing utility turkey this year. Last year it was pretty much everyone.

The West Island IGAs are advertising Butterball's for $1.69/lb. It's a flyer insert.

It's getting a bit late to have time to defrost those turkeys in the refrigerator in time for... when do people celebrate? Sunday or Monday?

Even the Pricechopper in Ogdensburg doesn't have turkeys this year. Every other year they used to have a sale for Canadian Thanksgiving with turkeys @ .49 to .79 cents a pound.

OP said "pretty useless unless you shop at 8:00 AM". The turkey at my local Walmart is there since morning and still available as of 4:00pm

What? I was talking about the time it takes to defrost a huge turkey if you do it the proper way, by leaving it in the refrigerator at home.
It can take 2-3 easy. If you buy a 10lbs bird tonight, you will have "just" enough time to have it thawed by Sunday morning.

$1.99 a lb for Butterball Turkey in the Quebec Metro flyer and $1.49 lb in the Ontario flyer. Just goes to show how much we get price gouged on a regular basis here in Quebec.
