As Biden-Flation Rages, Retailers Take Action to Save Thanksgiving

Linkedin Share

If the American economy continues to suffer through the crucial consumer glut of the holiday season, our national fiscal picture could get very ugly in the coming months.

This is the time of year that we count on Americans spending, spending, spending, but the Biden administration’s woeful response to our out-of-control inflation situation has made it rather difficult for many to find the extra cash to participate fully.  This has been especially true at the grocery store, where Thanksgiving staples have been skyrocketing in price.

Now, in an effort to do what the White House can’t seem to, many retailers are working to slash prices and make this joyous holiday affordable for Americans from coast to coast.

Grocers and retailers are pitching in to ease the inflationary burden of putting a Thanksgiving feast on the table.

Some stores are offering free turkeys and even issued major discounts on holiday food items as Americans face double-digit price increases for certain Thanksgiving staples.

Earlier this month, Walmart announced that customers will be able to get Thanksgiving meal staples such as turkey, ham, potatoes and stuffing “at last year’s price.”

“Saving money is a top priority for our customers right now, so this year, we’re removing inflation on an entire basket containing traditional Thanksgiving items,” John Laney, executive vice president of food at Walmart U.S. said in a blog post.

Walmart wasn’t the only one:

The news comes just after discount supermarket chain Aldi announced that it’s discounting Thanksgiving staples so that they will match 2019 prices.

Holiday food including appetizers, desserts, sides and beverages, are being discounted up to 30% as part of its Thanksgiving Price Rewind promotion, the grocer said.

“Providing amazing products at the absolute lowest prices is what we’ve always done, and we know right now that’s more important than ever,” Dave Rinaldo, president of Aldi U.S., said.

If the cost of Thanksgiving can remain steady-ish, then Americans could find themselves with some extra cash ahead of Christmas, which is another crucial test of the nation’s economic strength.
