Weis Markets Freezes 1,000 Items
Company, which has Forks Township store, will keep price freeze in effect through Oct. 20.
Weis Markets Inc. is lowering prices on over 1,000 staple items and will freeze the prices of these products for 100 days in recognition of its 100th anniversary this year.
Company officials announced in a press release that it's Weis Markets' ninth Price Freeze since 2009.
Weis opened a store in Forks Township last year. Another one is in Palmer Township.
"We have extended our 90 day price freeze by 10 days in recognition of our company's 100 year anniversary. Since 2009, our Price Freeze program has generated nearly $40 million in savings for our customers," said Kurt Schertle, Weis Markets Executive Vice President, Sales and Merchandising.
"We have locked in long-term savings for customers through long-term deals and strategic buying that will help minimize the impact of commodity inflation in the months ahead," he said.
Weis Markets' current Price Freeze program includes more than 1,000 brand-name and private brand products in grocery, frozen, dairy, meat, health, beauty care and general merchandise.
The current Price Freeze premiered in Weis Markets' July 15 circular, radio and billboard advertisements.
It will run through Oct. 20.
In stores, customers will see Price Freeze signage and shelf tags for participating items.
