Our bargain-hunter bids farewell to the Ukrop’s circular (*sniff**sniff*) and fills us in on this week’s best deals, including great sales on deli meats, yogurt, and veg. Come take a look!
The Ukrop’s circular was missing from the Sunday paper this week; the last locations closed on Saturday to re-open next Monday as the final round of MARTIN’S stores. I heard a lot of comments from shoppers disappointed that MARTIN’S didn’t offer any “grand opening” special sales, but with the transition almost complete, there is still a chance the chain will observe a grand re-opening within the next week or two.
Next week’s column will have my strategies for frugal grocery shopping under the new MARTIN’S regime.
