Thanksgiving turkey prices: Here are the LOWEST prices in the region
CINCINNATI – Most Tri-State shoppers will be heading to the grocery store this weekend to buy their Thanksgiving turkey and trimmings.
Holiday food shopping can get pricey. That’s why if you normally don’t read store circulars, this is the one weekend you should.
Cincinnati-area shopping blogger Heather Tenney has told us in the past you can find sales, coupons and bonuses if you plan ahead.
“You want to look through and look for the things that are a good price and then go to something like a coupon database and match up where there might be coupons that match with it,” she said.
