Whole Foods Market has announced the launch of â€˜Value Shopping Tips, Tours and Top Sellersâ€™ to help shoppers find deals throughout the store.
â€˜We want customers to know there are many ways to continue enjoying quality foods on a budget, even during times of worldwide food inflation,â€™ says Bruce Silverman, Whole Foods Market â€˜Value Guruâ€™ and global vice president of the Company’s private label program. These tools are aimed at helping direct shoppers to the best values in every department in our stores.â€™
Top 5 Value Shopping Tips:
1. SHOP THE SPECIALS â€“ Stores have regular specials, which can be found online and in the stores’ flyers.
2. SAVE WITH THE SEASONS â€“ It is cheaper to shop seasonally. It also pays to know when the â€˜peakâ€™ of the season for fruit and vegetables are in your region.
3. CHECK OUT STORE BRANDS – Private label products must adhere to high quality standards.
4. WASTE NOT, WANT NOT – Buy bargains in quantity and freeze extra product. When shopping, think about creative ways to use leftovers, giving them new life in soups, salads and sandwiches.
5. BULK UP – Shop the bulk grocery bins, which can frequently be more economical. B
