Loblaw is about its discount policy

Loblaw has reversed its decision to remove the 50% discount on food products nearing their use-by date.

We’ve heard feedback from our customers and colleagues and are returning to 50% offthe company said.

We have not and will not implement change in the Atlantic. In the rest of the country, customers can expect the 50% sticker to return in the coming weeks.

Earlier this week, the CBC reported that an email from Loblaw Companies indicated it would no longer be reducing perishable foods such as meat, fruits and vegetables by 50 percent as expiration dates neared.

Amid rising food prices, the decision was criticized by people who rely on the discounts to make ends meet.

Bill VanGorder of the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP) welcomed Loblaw’s decision to reverse course.

I think this is great news. Isn’t it good news to think that a large company like Loblaw is able to listen to customers, respond and make the right decisions?he declared.

Mr. VanGorder said the reduction would mean a huge difference for people with limited income. He said when the announcement was first made, he received numerous calls and emails from concerned people across Canada.

I hope that all grocers look at this decision and realize that it is in their interest to meet the needs of older Canadians in this country and help them have the comfortable lives they deserve to live.he declared.
