Where the hell do you get a 50 pound bag of potatoes????

Posted on Wed, Jan 11, 2012 at 11:35 AM

What is it with the supermarkets in Halifax, either the buyers are stupid, mentally challenged or just plain profit mongering money gouging toadies for corporate. I am leaning toward the 3rd. A 5 pound bag of potatoes, about $4.00 a 10lb bag $5.00, 15 pounds about $7 to $8. So apparently nobody has a family around here. Or is it just that the grocery stores expect customers to carry out 10 5lb bags? These stores are forcing people to pay for tiny packaging, so they can gouge more profit. You can bet you @ss the farmers aren't seeing so much as a tarnished copper from it.

So here is the deal. Enjoy your price gouging now while you can, I'll rotate my shopping per where the sales are, but as soon as I find a store that carries what I want to buy in the size I want, I'll be headed there, and these other places can go []>>>>>>> themselves. —GB
