I thought my store was doing it Tuesdays or Thursdays, I can't remember. I know it was a T as the first letter of the day....LOL

Does anyone know what time of day they typically do the markdowns? In the am? Or does it just vary store to store?

I used to work in the Kroger meat dept. and we did markdowns by 10am every moning. the shelf life varies because everything is cut in store. I do know that we had a lot of markdowns on Wed. mornings that's when all the seniors citizens shop (and me!) It probably just varies by store though.

I'd ask. My Kroger meat manager is out doing it every morning between 7 & & 7:30. He usually has a whole cart full by the time he's done (well, if I'm not there, lol!) If I'm there I just kinda float around and get from his cart. That's one advantage of making a "friend" at the grocery store!

Ok, I called him. He said that meat gets 5 days of shelf life. 4 days reg price/1 day clearanced. Hamburger is clearanced everyday. They do it of the morning as soon as they go in. When he opens he has to be there at 6 normally. HTH!

SOOOOOOO....
I went this morning just to ask (it's on my way to work) and guess what??!! They were marking it down! Yep! I could spot those orange and yellow manager special stickers from anywhere!!! I told the meat man marking it down, you must have read my mind! He just kinda looked at me, but when he saw my cart loaded up with meat, he started laughing and helping me pick some out!!!

AWESOME! I spent $80, but I got some babyfood (on closeout, of course). This is what I bought:

3 x Pot Roasts
Stew Beef
2 x Beef Steak
1 x Round Steak
6 x Tyson Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (I even had coupons for these, so I got an extra $1.10 EACH!!)
1 x B-fly Pork Chops
2 x Thick Cut Pork Chops (8 in each, so this will be 4 dinners)
1 Pork Ribs

The meat was al least 50% off, so I saved a bunch and won't have to hover in the meat dept. looking for good deals!!!!

Go get some meat, ladies!
