I joked in a Facebook post about making raisins in the front yard the week it hit over 110 degrees, but this week might be the week to actually give it a try, with the cheapest grapes I’ve seen in a long time. Also spotted–Concord grapes and champagne grapes, which are both fun if you’ve got a fancy party or are just fancy all on your own.

It seems like half of Randalls is ‘buy four things and get lower prices’, in their ongoing effort to have you walk in the door. You don’t have to purchase four of a single item–you can get a can of this, a box of that, some pickles and Ziploc bags and get the lower price on each item. You might want to check their flyer out at the link below and see if any of your staples are on there at a stock-up price. If you’re not sure, go ahead and ask me!
