Use to buy 10 cartons of these same eggs for 1.88 a carton on weekends only. Now due to covid they upped the price to 2.29 a carton.

If you got 20x in your app and need other items to get to the minimum spend you can take about 30% off these eggs back in points too. I’ve done it a couple of times in the past. Only issue is shoppers is real hit and miss for stock. Some stores have like 40 cartons which sell out within a hour of opening on Saturday. Others have mountains of eggs that you can still find them Sunday afternoon. I say find a store that has a full grocery area they seem to be the ones that have the most stock compared to the stores that just has a fridge section.

In the west in the past the eggs were always a weekend thing but just looked at the flyer and your right it’s all week this long but they also increased the price compared to their typical weekend only sale.

By applying this slightly lower price for the entire week I think this is really a smarter move for them
No need for them to advertise weekend sale of 2 dollars or less and
One has to consider that during the weekdays first one hour - seniors get 20% off regular price
Having this advertised price of 2.29 ... it's actually higher than the 2.15 (2.69 less 20%)

I used to know a senior couple who always their milk and eggs runs on SDM Thursday prior to covid.
It was 20% and they accepted the slightly higher eggs price since this was part of their weekly routine
and they avoid those multi cart customers on 20X weekend.

Last week went to Rexall ... weekend sale for 1.99 (Limit 2) ... They don't have it this week
I prefer the ones at Rexall ... Gray Ridge or Burnbrae branded eggs (not No Name)

If sometime this week, there is a weekday SDM PC optimum offer
i.e. Spend 30.00 get 7500 PC points offer
Then I may consider buying eggs at 2.29 to get those PC points

Is this a hot deal - I would say warm
(noticed your reply against downvotes in the other thread)

Should this be a placed in shopping discussion thread - probably.

At the moment, just finding eggs is a deal. Few cents won't change my life

There's no shortage of eggs.
Self fulfilling rumors.
Only local temporary imbalance between how fast people buy and shelves can be restocked.
People don't have breakfast in restaurants anymore, they have breakfast at home so they buy more eggs.
But there are as many laying hens as before.
It's just like the run on TP.
There's no shortage of that either.
There's a shortage of employees in grocery stores to keep the shelves stocked.

There's no supply shortage, but rather the 'supply- chain fullfillment' issue. The Just-in-time inventory systems are just getting re-scoped, as prior forecasts are now flawed. Hence, the empty shelves etc. However, it's not like TP or cleaning supplies, eggs are in much better shape. However, believing that supply-chain is working is flawed. It is not.

Essential supplies like Yeast for baking etc aren't there.. and haven't been since the start. I actually commend the ugly hoarders in the beginning, as they were mostly right. It's us, who believed that everything is ok, that are paying for not hoarding and having to make more trips to stores vs the hoarders.. lol

Expecting the status quo to continue is wishful thinking. Yes, supplies are being rerouted from restaurants to grocery stores, and warehouse reserves were healthy, but if this continues for months, we will start to see shortages. There are less people working and distancing regulations which will trickle down the supply chain. As long as demand for certain products remain high, supply will start to fall behind.

Why would there be more demand?
Do people eat more eggs?
(OK, I've gain a few but that's not because of eggs and that's beside the point anyway. Lol!)

Price is a wonderful tool that will tell if there's a shortage or not.
As long as we keep seeing special pricing, it's an indication that there is no shortage.
You don't see special prices on hand sanitizer these days, do you?

We are headed towards less restrictions, not more.
Keep calm and carry on.

The limit is 2 on the eggs at Shoppers. Then it's $2.69 WITH NO LIMIT! You can hoard if you want!

I should have said "specials" is a wonderful tool that will tell if there's a shortage or not, not price.
Specials on eggs (and other specials) are loss leaders.
The higher or lower price only indicates how much chains are willing to lose on every dozen.
The prices vary up and down from time to time depending on how much of an impact the grocery chains wants to make.
Now, these days, with shorter hours, line-up outside the stores, social distancing inside, merchants don't have to be so aggressive with pricing.
They are almost the only game in town with restaurants closed except for take out.
Some merchants like Walmart and Pharmaprix (Shoppers) have even stopped with their flyers.

The point is you wouldn't see eggs on special, whatever the price, if there was a shortage.

There absolutely is a supply shortage of eggs.

Egg suppliers are limiting what retail stores can order from them. Where as before they put no limits

SDM had the eggs local here in Thunder Bay. I don't eat as many as I used to so they go to waste. Wish I could buy 6 packs at a reasonable rate but they usually cost more than buying 12.

Source or B.S.!

Kind of ironic, I just found Hand sanitizer on special.
I guess we are beginning to see less shortage for that.
