Pennsylvania-based Weis Markets said yesterday that it is launching a Three More Ways to Save program that it said will offer discounts on more than 2,000 products in every store department.
The company said that the savings program will have three elements: a “lowest price in the market” guarantee on four weekly items, everyday lower prices on 1,000 items throughout the store, and a 90-day price freeze “on thousands of seasonally relevant items that will remain at these prices through April 13, 2014.”
• The San Diego Union Tribune reports that Baron’s Market, a four-store independent operating in the San Diego market, will open a new store in the town of Alpine, in a location formerly run by Fresh & Easy.
Baron’s has a unique approach – simplifying shopping by offering fewer options, a “curated selection of healthy and affordable foods, all tasted and approved by a committee of managers.”
An opening date has not yet been set.
