The Freshco frozen ribs are pretty bad. Pay a little more and buy fresh.

Thanks. I'll probably pass...helps that there's no Freshco near me anyways.

BTW anyone know if other retailers (No Frills, Walmart, RCSS) price match meat?
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

RCSS does, you have to speak to the meat counter and have them print you a discount bar code for the cashier to scan. The meat needs to be of similar quality.

True about similar quality, can’t match fresh for frozen. AFAIK RCSS don’t carry frozen back ribs.

IIRC if they have too much stock, they freeze it because I'm pretty sure I bought it there.

You're right. However, stars have to line up to find frozen ribs at RCSS the same week someone else has it on sale. I prefer cryovac ribs (fresh or frozen) over styrofoam packed ones, more freezer friendly.

Yes, they will, but I find that No Frills is pickier than others about who is considered a local competitor.

YMMV but in the past I was able to price match other retailers meat prices to get the "free from" pork/chicken at RCSS... Recently they changed that and the guy told me "corporate said..." so could be company wide now

For those talking about fresh vs frozen, I've noticed a disturbing trend since around the time covid started where the meats are frozen and then put on the shelf. I live in Kitchener/Waterloo and have seen it done at Zhers, Food Basics and I believe all places I've been too. I think it's even worse buying something that you thought was fresh when it was previously frozen. I hope this isn't a thing everywhere, but it wouldn't surprise me at all. Someone knows it's happening and I'm sure the meat managers are just following mandates from up above.
