SUNBURY, Pa. Weis Markets on Wednesday announced it has implemented a second 90-day price freeze on 3,000 of its staple items, effective April 16 through July 15.
“At a time when unemployment continues to surge in many of our markets — in some areas to as high as 10% — our Price Freeze Program is designed to offer meaningful, long-term savings to our customers,” stated David Hepfinger, Weis Markets’ president and CEO. “We’ve also expanded our Price Freeze item count to 3,000 products, up 600 compared to our initial program. We estimate our initial Price Freeze program helped our customers save approximately $5 million and hope to save our customers even more in the coming months.”
Of the 3,000 Price Freeze products, Weis Markets first lowered the prices on 2,400 items – and then froze this lower price for 90 days.
The current price freeze program includes private label and brand name products in center store, frozen, dairy, produce, meat, deli and bakery. The Price Freeze program is being promoted in Weis Markets’ current print, television and radio ads. In stores, customers will see special Price Freeze shelf tags on participating items.
