Flour prices going down?
For the last two weeks, almost all flour at my grocery has been on sale. A five pound bag KA All Purpose was going for 3.59, just under $0.72/lb. Even the store-brand stuff was on sale.
Could it be that flour prices are slowly dropping? Or perhaps our monolithic regional grocers is just doing a periodic marketing sale of baking supplies? If so, it sure worked on me: I purchased 25 pounds to stock up.
I'm always shocked to see how flour prices are set regionally, even within the same chain. I have family in central Indiana, where a bag of KA AP costs an additional 30-40 cents per pound.
What are you seeing in your area?
