Unless an item goes up significantly, I don't usually notice the increase in price. I try to do most of my shopping online. It's more convenient.

I'm not a big Wal Mart shopper anyway. Both Wal Mart and Target offer free shipping if you spend so much, so it's worth it especially if you have to drive mile and miles to get to a local store.

Also, there are rebate companies like Ebates that give you cashback if you shop online at stores that partner up with them. Wal Mart is one of them. :thumbsup:

:heart:  :star:  :heart: Price's have been going up everywhere for years. I'm unsure that price's will go down. Which makes a living much harder to get.  I've noticed a small change in Walmart though!  :heart:  :star:  :heart:

Of course they will not go down. Companies are being forced to raise their pay rates. So everything goes up to compensate for that. That is what people cannot seem to understand. You can scream til you die Walmart can afford to pay more.  The owners and CEO and big shots at Walmart are not going to give up part of their pay to the little man, the uneducated twit running a register or stocking a shelf. It is the same with other companies.

I recently applied for a job unsure exactly of the pay and hours but after turning in resume and talking to hiring manager find out the job is only 20 hours a week and pays $9 an hour.  And the 4 hours are in the middle of the day so you can't do anything else. You can't live on that. And the more companies like Walmart are forced to pay higher wages and the more the cheapest places to shop raise their prices the harder it is for anyone to make it.

I do not know if it is all the stores or just my local store but the prices at OUR store are going up in huge leaps and bounds.  They are basically shooting themselves in the foot because more and more people are turning to online shopping.

Between raising prices every week and constantly moving stuff around and you can't find anything people are just getting fed up.

I have noticed several items that have went up at least 20 cents a week for the past few weeks.  I live in a smaller town and there isn't really any where else to shop except a grocery store and Dollar General BOTH of which the prices are at least 50 cents higher on each item.

Has any one else noticed the prices going up at their stores?

Hello! :D :)

I'm in New York so of course prices have gone up. I remember earlier years when I went food shopping and I could've gotten a lot of food. Now a dollar just don't go as far. :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose:

I was at our local WalMart the other day,,,  hadn't been there in a few weeks.  And Yes the prices have gone up on things.  I have a feeling that people are doing more online shopping and it is effecting the actual stores.  I like to see what I am buying when it come to food.  I won't be buying food online.

Got to be careful on what is on sale, they compete, with the dollar stores. I did learn something while walking through Walmart here, they have Walmart radio. lol

More people are probably using their online service since they offer free shipping and you don't need to buy a membership like Amazon (who is their biggest competitor).

I may have to check the ebates thing out. Don't know much more than the name. I can't have stuff delivered when I am not home though. Or my neighbors will help themselves to it.

That is why they done that. But there are still tons of things you can find at Amazon that Walmart does not carry.

I notice this happening in Market Basket. Pancakes jumped up 25 cents. And the frozen fruit did so as well, strangely making the regular, the same price as the organic!

Google JediJohnnie and May the Force be with you!

I went in yesterday after noon and was going to grab the single serving chocolate milk. The small 12 oz bottle was $1.69 cents. So not only has the price went up almost 70 cents but they have started selling a smaller size which actually makes it even more expensive. Needless to say - I just left it in the cooler. I refuse to pay that much.

I think it's the minimum wage increasing. I'm not economics expert but it seems the prices of lots of things are based on the minimum wage, so that no matter how high you make it, prices overall will scale up and mw workers are hardly better off. Or else places will do like McDonald's and put in self ordering kiosks so they don't have to pay human cashiers anymore.
