Why is is that all the chain groceries and other stores are posting signs all over their front windows boasting “LOWER PRICES!” and “20% lower prices!” and “Storewide lower prices” ? We know for a fact that employee costs have gone up, with the raise in minimum wage and insurance, and the prices of products have also increased with the increase in the price of gas as well as employee costs.
So store are paying more and charging us less?
Doesn’t that cut into their profit margin?
Or is that a belated admission that they had the prices jacked up real high before the economic bad times and were ripping us off hand over fist?
Anyone hear an apology?
No, I didn’t either.
