According to reports, grocery stores discounted turkeys more this year than for previous Thanksgivings to entice shoppers into their markets.
Wal-Mart announced its price of Grade A frozen turkeys at 40 cents a pound compared to last year's price of 84 cents a pound.
Kroger offered shoppers using their loyalty card 33 cents a pound on Jennie-O frozen turkey with a $20 purchase. Thom Thumb also offered the same price with card and $25 purchase. Wal-Mart matched the 33-cent offer locally with no restrictions. A number of other retailers also offered below-cost discounts on turkeys.
