In addition to the holiday seasonal basket deals, Walmart will be continuing to keep prices low on other individual foods as the holidays approach. The press release also detailed that the chain plans to offer more sales and discounts more frequently. The chain reports that it helped save customers $1 billion in food costs over the past year.
In 2022, the store cut its prices to match those of 2021. This year, according to the press release, those same foods will be even cheaper. The Walmart website is currently advertising 6-ounce boxes of Stove Top turkey stuffing for just $1.98 per box and boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix for 52 cents. The grocery store is likely to slash prices on other seasonal foods as the holidays approach, removing inflation from its pricing.
President and CEO of Walmart U.S., John Furner, said in the press release: “Saving money remains a top priority for our customers, and this holiday season, we’re building on the investments we made last year knowing they need it now more than ever.” Walmart’s inflation-busting deals could help keep inflation concerns out of the holiday picture for its customers, and may even lure some new customers seeking savings this season.
