[Walmart] Watermelon season has arrived! $3.97 (11 LB average)

Walmart - Watermelon season has arrived! $3.97 (11 LB average)

Large watermelons started selling for $7-8 a few weeks ago, but now summer is arriving and prices are dropping.

Walmart has large watermelon (11 LB average) on sale this week for $3.97 (reg $6.97) until June 5.

Hopefully, RCSS will price match because it's closer.

No need to price match at RCSS. That is their price as well.

No Frills has 9lb average for $2.77 as well.

Ah, you have "prior knowledge" and today is Thursday, so you must be from the east, where the RCSS sale period runs Thursday to Wednesday, whereas we in the west, the RCSS sale period runs Friday to Thursday (so today, we are on the last day of current flyer)

Usually 95% of the flyer is the same products at the same prices but I see variations, especially in fresh produce pricing. I see the east flyer has beefsteak tomatoes at 88c/LB, but I'm going to predict that it will be 99c/LB out west.

So for future reference, please reference "RCSS (East)" in postings.

Ah, I see RCSS East has the watermelon at $3.98, so they will have to price match to $3.97, or maybe even price-beat to $3.96. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Your best bet is during late July/August, look for watermelon originating from ONTARIO.

Local Ontario produce (if you live near or in Ontario) is usually picked not as early, and has more time to ripen on the vine.

I believe the formula would be:
watermelon x watermelon x watermelon = watermelon³

Slice watermelon in half, place upside Down, slice all skins off. Then slice in blocks

To paraphrase the words of wisdom regarding "how to carve an elephant from a piece of wood", "just cut away any material that does not look like a cube".

Enjoy!

This week's west RCSS flyer arrived and watermelon is $4.96. Fortunately the sign in-store is already price-matched to Walmart's $3.97.
Hey Loblaws - where's the love for the west ? Disappointed But Relieved Face
