South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa Walmarts Give Easter Price Break
A recent Reuters article had good news for Easter shoppers trying to hold down their costs.
Walmart, one of the largest retailers in the world, has recently announced that it will be holding its prices for Easter 2023 at last year's level. This move comes as a relief to many shoppers who have been dealing with rising prices due to inflation and supply chain disruptions.
Walmart will be offering an Easter meal and basket combo for less than $100, both online and in stores. The baskets will contain ham, green beans, cherry pies, Hershey's milk chocolate bunnies, and Reese's eggs along with some decorative grass.
By keeping prices steady, Walmart is demonstrating its commitment to providing value for its customers, while also helping to boost consumer confidence during uncertain times. This move may also help Walmart to maintain its market share in the face of increasing competition from other retailers.
Increasing prices on all things grocery have meant that prices for families in January alone rose by over 11%, according to the U.S. Labor Department.
This decision is also a strategic move for Walmart, as it will likely attract more customers to its stores and online platforms. The company has been facing increased competition from e-commerce giants and traditional retailers, and holding prices steady may give it a competitive advantage.
