King Arthur Flour Prices

I tend not to use KA flour because in Minnesota it's at least one third to one-half higher in cost than other flours.  That's why I was surprised when I bought KA all-purpose, bread flour and whole wheat at Target at prices ranging from $3.84 to 3.99. for 5 lbs.  I find it's usually it's $6.00 or more at Most stores in Minn.  A KA price reduction or  Target pricing? I thought I would pass this on.

It's Target pricing. At the local Target, it was regularly $3.19 for 5 lbs of KAF AP flour for months; it recently went up to $3.39. All of the other stores charge at least $4.99 for the same flour unless it's on sale.

Not all Target stores carried KAF though, but it seems to be showing up in more stores recently.

At least where I live, it's cheaper by about 1/3 in the summer, but goes back up in price in the autumn, winter, spring. Assume it's because of lower demand for flour in the summer because fewer people bake?

I've bought it from Meijer before for $2.99 plus a $0.50 off coupon.  When I see deals like those I normally clear the shelf.

I was in the Lawrence, KS Target yesterday and saw Gold Medal White Whole Wheat flour, something I hadn't seen in any of the local or KC stores that I shop. Their price was $3.44/5#, same as the whole wheat price.

my walmart carries KAF white whole wheat, and bread flours at a very good price.
