Wegmans freezes prices on some seasonally popular items
Wegmans has once again locked in prices for more than 50, mainly store-brand products that families buy most during the winter months.
The prices, which will remain in effect through April 6, include such items as club packs of boneless chicken breasts for $1.99 per pound, club packs of pork tenderloin for $2.79 per pound and 2-pound bags of clementines for $2.99. The complete list will be available on wegmans.com on Thursday Jan. 3.
“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.”
Wegmans also announced that it has extended free prescriptions (up to a 90-day supply) for Atorvastatin through the end of 2013. The program went into effect on August 26, and was originally planned to end on April 27.
