Albertson's gives big savings to some shoppers, big nothing to everyone else


The Albertson's supermarket chain is readying some massive price cuts on groceries. Albertson's "Big Relief Price Cut" promotion slashes prices at some 300 stores in southern California and Nevada. Last month, parent company Supervalu implemented a similar program at its Jewel-Osco stores in the Chicago area. In all, 500 stores are taking part. Yet some shoppers, it seems, are looking the gift horse in the mouth.
