🍗 NJ grocer is cutting prices this summer

🍗 Promotion taps into concerns about inflation

Feeling the sticker shock at the grocery store?

One grocery store chain feels your pain and wants to help keep some money in your pocket this summer.

Aldi is planning to pass along $100 million in savings through Labor Day by further dropping its prices on more than 250 items.

The price drop will nearly double savings from last year, building on the grocer’s recent announcement, reducing prices to save shoppers more than $60 million, the company said.
