Inflation continues to cripple many Americans’ budgets this year, making a traditional Thanksgiving feast a stretch for some. Thankfully, at least two retailers are scaling back their Thanksgiving dinner cost. Aldi and Walmart each promise to price Thanksgiving staple items (including turkey!) at pre-inflation rates. In fact, some Walmart turkeys will be priced at under $1 per pound through Dec. 26, making your Christmas and Hanukkah meal shopping less painful on your wallet, too.
According to the Ameican Farm Bureau Federation, the average price of turkeys in August, 2023 dropped 22% to $1.27/lb from the $1.63/lb in August of last year. This drop in price is due to an increase in turkeys since the avain flu outbreak of 2022. Experts expect demand for turkeys to increase by 6% this year, as a result of lower prices.
