Publix Claims WalMart Doesn't Always Have the Lowest Prices. Please.



Publix has a hysterically funny billboard stuck right in the middle of downtown Orlando facing I-4. Obnoxious in placement, and event more obnoxious in message. 

The sign claims "WalMart doesn't always have the lowest price." Please. Have you compared the prices at Publix to those of WalMart or Target? If so, you know Publix loses.

Now it's well known WalMart has questionable business practices. And choosing to not shop there for those reasons is understandable. But Publix prices are *not* lower than Target on many products. 

Have you found otherwise?

Yes. Publix has by far better sale prices than Walmart or Target ever do -- compare bogo prices and you'll see (especially if you stack coupons on top)... meanwhile, Walmart has lower prices across the board but almost never puts its products on good sale prices.

I completely agree with the poster above. I work in the grocery industry and deal with each grocery chain here in FL and Walmart is only guranteed to have lower prices "always." Meanwhile, frugal shoppers can really pinch pennies shopping BOGO ads in all other stores.

The billboard is accurate...Walmart is not ALWAYS the cheapest. Publix's BOGO items are usually unbeatable. Outside of that though, yes, Walmart will be cheaper

But Pulix will always leave you missing peopleofwalmart.com

Completely agree with the other posters here. Publix has bogo which drops the prices. Then on top of bogo you can stack 2 publix (or target) coupons with 2 manufacturer coupons and you are saving a great deal. I've gotten Soft Scrub cleaner for 35 cents each, or 2 pints of Ben and Jerry's Ice cream for $2 total. I'd like to see Walmart beat that.

BOGO is a sale. We're not talking sales. We're talking regular prices.

Exactly correct, Mark--comparing BOGO and regular prices is apples and oranges. And Target generally has way better prices on frozen meals, granola bars, soda, etc.

Target has great prices on frozen meals, canned soups, and greek yogurt. My staples. :)

I say it depends on the items. The one thing that Publix does have over WalMart is that shopping there really is a pleasure. ;)
