Turkey Wars 2011!

And so it begins....the annual war between the stores to get you to come in and buy your T-day turkey. I have been keeping track of Turkey prices for the last two years, it's interesting to me because I know (from talking to folks in the meat business) that most stores take a HUGE loss on the Turkeys.  They figure, if they give you a great deal on your bird, that you will most likely buy the rest of the groceries you need for the traditional feast at their store too, making this one of the most competive times of the year for the grocery business!

Here are this year's Turkey prices and comparisons to 2010 and 2009:


Farm Fresh Basted or Honeysucket White Frozen whole Turkeys (16 pound or larger), $0.31 cents/lb. or $0.41 cents per pound (under 16 pounds) with a minimum $50.00 purchase.  Additional Turkeys are regular retail price at $1.49/lb.
