Wegmans plans to freeze prices for 53 items through April 6. Even if the cost goes up for the products, the company will not increase the retail price during that period. "Our seasonal list has been our way of helping families find value and plan meals on a budget," said President Colleen Wegman. "Employees and customers stop me in our stores to say how helpful it's been. They especially like that the list is not random, but is made up of products they need to buy every week."
The list is comprised of selections in meat, seafood, produce, grocery, dairy, bakery, frozen foods and deli.
Wegmans peanut butter is still on the list, but with a new, lower price, reduced from $1.99 to $1.69, the result of good peanut crop last year. Other products on the winter list include:
Boneless Chicken Breast, Club Pack $1.99/ lb
80% Lean Ground Beef , Club Pack $2.19/ lb
Pork Tenderloin, Club Pack $2.79/ lb
Navel Oranges, 8 lb. Club Pack $4.99
Red Grapes $1.99/ lb
Clementine Tangerines 2 lb. bag $2.99
The list is made up almost exclusively of Wegmans brand products, because the company can be more aggressive with pricing its own brand. One exception is Clif Bars 2.4 oz.,
12-pack for $9.99.
Wegmans also announced that they have extended, through the end of 2013, free prescriptions (up to a 90-day supply) for Atorvastatin.
