A new trend has started in the retail/superstore industry and I couldn't be more excited about it. For a few years now we have been battling the long battle of inflation and have been losing and prices of goods have continued to rise. As time went on more and more consumers began to complain about how there simply just isn't enough money to have necessities and enjoy the things they want in life due to the heavily rising costs.

Well, the stores took this information and decided to do something about it. At first, we began to see a lot of retailers and other businesses offer discounts and deals that were meant to entice customers to spend their money again. That worked to some extent but that was just a ploy for a much bigger plan that they had in motion. Now, another retailer seems to be hopping on the trend as they are trying to make life easier for their customers while still generating some profits.

Recently we have seen a handful of retailers come out and announce that they would be lowering their prices on several thousand items to make things a little bit easier on their consumers. Well, Walgreens has entered the chat and announced that they will also be discounting 1,500 items before the summertime hits.

For example, an 80-count One A Day gummy vitamins jar now costs $11.99, down from $13.49, and the price of a bag of sour cream and onion potato chips from the Walgreens-owned Nice! brand now costs $1.99, down from $2.79. For kids, the price of a 16-inch Squishmallow plush has gone from $24.99 to $20.

Be on the lookout for other items to drop in price over the next few weeks to months and get those savings, every cent counts!
