Yes. A merchant may refuse service to anyone for any reason other than those explicitly prohibited by law.

My local No Frills puts limits on sale items. They are usually loss leaders and don't want a single person clearing them out. If you aren't there on the day sales start you won't find the best deals much of the time anyway. I remember last year they put pork loin on sale for less than a buck per pound. All my local stores were picked clean by Saturday with a limit of 2, they never got it back in stock until the sale was over. 'Shorting' by the supplier was their excuse.

Its No Frills, not Costco. How many did they let you buy? What was left in stock? Any fish sauce left for me?

You sure like your fish...

I guess you missed the 2 consecutive butter sale at no frills recently. Cleaned out by Friday both weekends. And of course no stock to be had by Saturday or Sunday.

Now that more stores price match, I don't feel too bad if a store is out of stock, I can pick it up somewhere else. Back in the day when price matching wasn't around it was 'get to the store the day of' or you missed out. Things I stock up on are mainly bricks of cheese and butter, butter freezes very well and cheese lasts for months. I routinely have 6 or so pounds of butter in the freezer and 10-12 500g bricks of a mixture of old cheddar and part-skim mozzarella. We go through a couple of bricks of cheese per week. I don't hoard much else. ;)

By the way, I'm not sure how many of you use it, there's an awesome app called Reebee, it's available at the iTunes store and Google Play. It's essential for those price matchers out there. I'm not sure how well it works nationally, around here it covers pretty much every store of importance in my area.

Unfortunately, Android users need Ice Cream Sandwich or later to use the app. My wife is on Gingerbread and can't use it on her phone.

They have the right to limit quantities even when it is not stated in the flyer.
