    I have not seen it in the weekly ads but Food Lion has had the Nature Own breads ( whole wheat & the white wheat) for $2 a loaf for the past 3 weeks . I have been to 4 different stores in 4 towns/cities price the same at all

    Thank You WOLFPACKY !
    IF it not too much trouble I would love to know what you find out - I hope it is at all HTs !

  • wolfpacky Aug 7, 2014

    LOSLTP I am not sure and I do not know if all stores are participating. I was in a hurry and briefly inquired about it at customer service as the sign said to do. I will be finding out tomorrow or Saturday for sure when I do some big shopping. The store I saw this at was at the HT on Greenlevel and Hwy 55 in Cary.

    Thanks WOLFPACKY
    Do you know if the $50 is the total before promos/coupons or after ?

  • wolfpacky Aug 7, 2014

    I saw yesterday at Harris Teeter that they started a new gas promotion. If you spend $50 in a single transaction you may then buy a $50 gas gift card to BP or Shell for $40 which is 20% off!
