    Sobeys might be involved in this bread thing as well from reading another article.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Could be right but Iíve read that Loblaws doesnít control superstore pricing as they effectively donít operate superstore so theyíre is a significant chance they arenít included.


    And yes their grocers are referred to as Loblaws city market


    Edit:
    Actually I think I might be wrong on this with superstore. It might be named in this.

    Watched globals coverage and they named Atlantic Superstore which is distinct from real Canadian superstore so thatís questionable

    Will be interested to see the results in January. But I wonít hold my breath
    Jesus Christ on a stick. You have no idea how anything works, do you? Well it certainly explains a lot of your other posts.

    Price fixing is common.

    Why? Well greed, but more specifically, it's almost impossible to prove, let alone convict.

    Occurring for over a decade, but somehow Loblaws just discovered it in their ranks. Uh huh .

    Regardless, its pretty obvious that Superstore was in on the collusion whether directed to do so or not.

    I mean seriously, they were bordering on a $5 loaf for some "specialty" grains. Literally prime rib pricing. Someone had to say something sooner or later, millennials don't know what things are supposed to be priced at - they just eat their $16 slice of avocado toast :P

    Thing that is still a bargain: Bananas shipped from tropical climates. Even at 80 cents per pound compared to the 9 cents I grew up with, it is still quite a deal considering the shipping distance. If the banana apocalypse ever happens (again), it will be the saddest day ever.

    Everything Ive heard out of their head office is that they are clear. The competition bureau came in and went thru everyone's computers, emails, texts, etc for the last 10 yrs and didn't find anything.

    Also heard their new CEO is pretty pissed at Weston for implying they were in on it.

    They came in FBI style in cheap suits and locked everything down and wouldn't tell anyone what they were looking for..

    Will be interesting to see if the other retailers go after loblaws for lost business.

    Edit - and so it begins.

    Article says to "declare," not prove - probably a checkbox

    Also, Loblaw Companies owns Superstore, which has been in Calgary since the 1990s
    Didn't they also own IGA? Or did they buy it. Not sure. Either way.
    Cos...

    I used to work for Loblaws in Category Management/Pricing, the divisions we covered for Western Canada pricing included Superstore, Extrafoods, and Whole Sale Club. Its been a few years now but Loblaws definitely controls Superstore pricing.

    Compensation of $25 is like 7 days worth of bread if you a eat an expensive loaf - or two weeks if cheapy loaves, if you eat one every day?

    Damn, white people got screwed. Most Asian types don't rely solely or some at all, on bread as a staple. Arguably it does not hurt as much though, because if you can't pay - just declare bankruptcy and get your bread again the next day. That is the Canadian way 101% debt ratio.

    Next up for scutiny, $40 per day parking - although its definitely arguable both ways and I will admit I am tending to charge and pay what you want for parking. Car parking to nickel ratio? Calculating right now.

    Don't celebrate yet, don't think the Asian are immune, what would you do if Tea & Tea (purposely misspelt) were accused price fixing rice for the past century. That sweet cherishable Thai elephant brand we've all grown up to savor.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this was true... Tea & Tea is owned by Loblaws

    Weston and Loblaws granted immunity by the Competition Bureau, one has to wonder why they decided to tattle and throw everyone else under the bus.

    Please don't start talking about bananas on a daily basis and ruin this for us. It's ridiculous how cheap they are and let's not ruin that. I'm not sure why people buy regular bananas instead of organic. The price difference is so small.
