BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Nov. 18, 2011 –
"The American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) recently reported that Americans will pay more to feed 10 people for Thanksgiving dinner this year than since the mid-1980s. The average turkey feast for 10 this year will cost $49.20
– that’s $5.73 more than it cost just last year (see related CD post here
). Shoppers at Walmart will pay 1/3 (31%) less for the same Thanksgiving groceries ($34.03
) and will have an extra $15 in their wallet with this savings.
“If you think about it, based on the Farm Bureau’s statistics, if you were to shop at Walmart for your Thanksgiving meal for 10, you could essentially feed three of your guests for free because you saved so much on the overall meal,” Sinclair added."
What single organization in human history has made the greatest contribution to enriching and improving the lives of the poor, the middle class, the average citizen, the bottom of "the 99%," etc.? I nominate Walmart.
