“Everyday Savings,” Indeed
You could be excused for thinking, at least momentarily, that “Whole Foods + Amazon” had aggressively cut prices on salmon.
After all, Jeff Bezos (“your margin is my profit”) had already slashed prices on ground beef, fresh turkey, avocadoes, and a few other loss (?) leaders.
Alas, it was not to be.
The sign’s fine print indicated that $4.99 was the price for a measly six ounces.
Do the math, and that’s $13.31 per pound.
Costco ain’t going out of business yet . . .
P.S.: If Amazon decides this form of, shall we say, slippery advertising works, look for these knock-offs:
“Cherry Pie $4 (a slice)”
“Gas $1 (per quart)”
“Fly Minneapolis – Chicago for $49! (every 100 miles)”
