Profiteering at Piazza's
Original post made by Resident, Ventura, on May 8, 2008
recently, so I'm not shocked to be paying more for some
But yesterday I went to Piazza's to buy some King Arthur
flour. Admittedly, this is a premium brand, more expensive
than the bleached Gold Medal stuff. I think I used to pay
about $4 for a 5 lb bag.
Piazza's has jacked their price up to $7.99! By contrast,
Mollie Stone's, where I went next, only charges $5.69.
I think this kind of profiteering is inappropriate. It's
hard to not believe they've marked this up extra-high
assuming people will just expect flour to be expensive
now in order to make extra profit.
