THE FINAL “CURTAIN” FOR THIS YEARS MOTHER’S DAY SPECIALS . .
… came down with a “bang”. PUEBLO lowered their special price for Pernil Trasero from $1.19 lb. to $0.85 lb. RALPH’S came out of the weeds with Pernil Delantero at 79 lb. attempting to “stick it to” ECONO with their lowered price from 88 lb. to 85 lb. The BIGGEST JOKE came from WALMIGO with a special price on Friday … Pernil Delantero 85 lb. Why is it a joke? WALMIGO had been running a TV commercial indicating that they would no longer participate in the “SPECIALS GAME”. This is kind of dumb because WALMIGO honors everyone’s specials and their declaration about not running specials lasted for 48 hours. Is it any wonder why a lot of people are speculating that the WALMIGO “Scheme Team” has a problem of not knowing what each hand is doing. Maybe the BUBBAS in Bentonville don’t know what the Bo Bo ‘s in “PuertoRicoville” are doing.
IT WAS PUEBLO & SUPERMAX ON WEDNESDAY WITH SHOPPERS
SUPERMAX does U.S. Choice Chuck & California steaks on the cover page at $1.97 lb. However, Chuck T Bones and Stew Beef on the interior page of the Shopper do not carry the U.S. Choice seal. How can you have Chuck & California steaks labeled as U.S. Choice and have Chuck T Bones and Stew beef labeled as U.S.? That’s a (DUH) for whoever “goofed” the ad copy. SUPERMAX also advertises boneless Country style Costillas and Masitas at $2.37 lb., which might be an attempt to liquidate an inventory of fresh Pernil Trasero. Those two cuts compete with the cover page special of Chuletas Corte De Centro Sin Hueso. PUEBLO does their Signature steak special N.Y. Strip Loin steaks at $2.99 lb. They merchandise Pernil Delantero (Costillas De Cerdo Country Style) at $1.19 lb. and Masitas De Cerdo Sin Hueso at $1.49 lb. PUEBLO shows signs of MEATABILITY by correctly identifying the veal shoulder chops at $2.69 lb.
ECONO IS INTO U.S. CHOICE CHUCK STEAKS ON THURSDAY …
… at $1.98 lb. with U.S. Choice California steaks at $2.98 lb. which gives SUPERMAX bragging rights on how to price Chucks with their U.S. Choice California steaks at $1.97 lb. It’s not very often that ECONO gets a kick in the butt from a competitor but SUPERMAX beat them up BIG TIME. Apparently ECONO liquidated all of their Pernil since there are no pernil cuts on special. It looks like SELECTOS, Mr. SPECIAL and RALPH’s got stuck with an inventory of Pernil Trasero (SELECTOS) and Pernil Delantero (MR. SPECIAL / RALPH’S) since they continue to advertise last weeks fresh pork specials. Did some supermarkets “over dose” on their purchases of fresh Pernil Delantero/Trasero? SELECTOS has a HOT special price ($0.89 lb.) Chuletas Corte De Punta and are into U.S. Choice beef cuts from the round. But they are tempting “fate” by advertising Prev. Cong. Caderas De Pollo on the cover page of their Shopper. The local Agriculture Department might begin to enforce the Regulation about the use of Previously Frozen Poultry products. The UGLY HEAD of local chicken interests that are no longer in business is beginning to surface once again. Watch out for costly multas and aggressive government action. PLAZA LOIZA does a half of a smoked pork loin at $1.98 lb. How many people are going to buy a half of a smoked pork loin? And Ferdysac has a secret that will be revealed when PLAZA LOIZA opens their newly acquired El Norte store.
