Each week, by noon on Wednesday, we send out our Grocery Guide, a digest of some, but not all, sales items in some, but not all, local grocery stores. This guide helps you review and compare sale prices. (We apologize for any typos and don’t guarantee any prices.)
Stores included: Albertsons/Safeway, Bashas’, Food City, Fry’s, Los Altos Ranch Markets, & Sprouts.
NOTE: the Grocery Guide includes lots of abbreviations. Review the list below.
