Shopping there or driving by? Go early, all you deal with is old people and probably early bird c-lais.

The no tax event is somewhat a scam. There are certain things which you save on (e.g buying a ps3) but most of the time the price of the other items just go up in order to make up for the loss. Food already has no tax on it so on that particular weekend they jack everything up by 50c~couple dollars then they are making money out of it.

I use to work at superstore and when I was doing price changes during no tax weekends everything went up by like $1-3 (I was in the over the counter drugs + baby section)

Somewhat of a scam......... maybe for people who aren't real shoppers.

Real shoppers price match, know their prices, check expiry dates, know what is freezer safe, know shelf life, and know what is taxable and what is not.

I'm so good, I put most C-Lai's to shame, LOLOLOLOL.

Inflating the price like that for a sale is illegal and against the Competition Act. Someone should really take some pictures of before + after price and grab the media attention to it.

But again for a company as big as Superstore...there must be some kind of loophole they are using. They wouldn't be doing something illegal to such a big brand.

Nevertheless...if the media expose the truth behind it...it would at least give them some bad publicity and lead to some better informed consumers.

Well I don't know the full details but from what I remember it would just look like price is going back up from a sale in the previous week and a bit more ontop of it.

For example:

Original Price: 8.99 (on most days on the rare occasion it is a bit higher)
Sale Price: 7.99
Then No tax week: 9.25 9.49 or 9.99

Edit: The system we print labels from is automated so its not something the local store managers set probably something from the head office so like you said thers probably some loophole or workaround

Like the repackaging of meat and poultry to extend expiry date............ seen it done. Asked them about it and they denied it. This was before it made headline news.

I don't buy any kind of meat from Superstore.

sorry oldie but i been putting c-lais to shame every since i was 16 (more maybe even younger) as we were not well off for a time so i had to try & make sure that i can save as much as i can (since i cook the dinner as well if dads busy which is most of the time)

no tax actually just sounds good but in reality u dun really save a lot, as its only like a few handful of things they wanna get rid of because its all in the mind (u think u get a deal cuz it says not tax & u got the 2 words stuck in ur head already)

i use to work at super store too & they just change the prices before hand (little bit before the no tax weekend like week or so) just so they dun get caught with this stuff (no sure if its right as its a long as time since i work there)

^ just like what is stated above...you probably know the prices of stuff that you always buy. if the price is higher, then you have the choice not to buy it there or buy it somewhere...imagine you are buying a TV and you see that the price did not budge couple that with a possible $20/30 off coupon and possibly more with you pc points...you would save a lot

Just went there this morning with flyers from Walmart, Zellers, and No Frills. Got sale prices, plus no tax. I imagine you could do the same with Best Buy and Future Shop flyers for electronics. Not sure on that one. It could be price match only on food items and sundries.

Forgot to mention. Superstore does not match No Frills prices. Their excuse is that it is owned by them. However, the Coquitlam location honours the No Frills flyer prices. I tried to get price matching done at Price Smart. They won't match No Frills prices. The manager said, those prices are ridiculous and No Frills is not a major competitor - they're too small, like T&T, Nesters, etc. I told him Loblaws is way bigger than them. I basically told the guy to take the "We match All Competitor's Prices" display down, because it is an outright lie. He really didn't have an answer to that - it's only convenient to them when they want it to be.

lol at no frills being too small -- like t&t (also owned by weston) lol.

i fucking hate stores that advertise 'we pricematch' then are bitches about it. different products i understand not pricematching, but same product?

they need to be more liek christine magee and pricematch anything and everything!

No frills relies on unit sales maximization (turnover) with a lower profit margin per unit. They are differentiated with other chains also because lack of services (lesser customer service), but generally rely on that said volume model.

O and btw, there's a nofrills on west broadway where the office depot used to be.
