“Manager’s Special” – It’s the magic sticker I love to see!
At my Kroger, there is always bread in the bakery marked “Manager’s Special”. In the meat department there is a section (sorta hidden at the end) for meat marked with the bright orange sticker. I have heard that the deli section also has the “quick sale” products, but you’d have to ask. At my Sams, the sticker says “Price reduced for quick sale”. I have wondered about “quick sale” produce…if it exists? I will be investigating!
I also just heard a rumor (meaning I have not confirmed it, but it does come from a VERY reliable source!) that Meijer discounts their deli meats and cheeses at 9 pm (M-F) and 9:30 (on weekends). If you’re a night owl shopper or have experienced this yourself, please let us know what you find!
Because I work on a “monthly menu“, I can get these “quick sale” products, stow them in the freezer, and always have cheaper breads and proteins for my meals…the “Manager’s Specials” are the way to go!
Stop by Customer Service at your grocery store to ask if they have a similar section or specials!
