The retailers are working to make the holiday more affordable for consumers


Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and whether you’re hosting or you’re responsible for a dessert or side dish, it’s time to start preparing. 

Two retailers – Walmart and Aldi – have announced that they’re lowering prices this Thanksgiving in an effort to help consumers keep up with the rate of inflation

“Saving money remains a top priority for our customers, and this holiday season, we’re building on the investments we made last year knowing they need it now more than ever,” said John Furner, Walmart’s president and CEO.

“We’re better positioned than ever to deliver on our purpose, to help consumers save money, especially during the most exciting time of the year. We’re ready to deliver the omni shopping experience we know our customers want and need, it’s going to be a great holiday season.” 

“Thanksgiving is all about gratitude, and we’re so grateful for our many local customers from coast-to-coast,” said Dave Rinaldo, President of Aldi. “With inflation still looming, we’re providing shoppers extra relief to make the holidays a time for celebration, not stress. What’s served on the Thanksgiving table is just as important as who’s sitting around it, so Aldi is delivering big savings on key items so there’s always room for more guests.”  

Expect lower prices than last year at Walmart

Last Thanksgiving, Walmart offered rollback prices for customers – Thanksgiving favorites at 2021 prices in 2022. 

For 2023, Walmart shoppers can expect even lower prices than last year. Starting as early as November 1 and running through December 26, inflation price hikes will be eliminated from all of the holiday favorites. 

For Thanksgiving specifically, customers will have two options on how they want to save: one with ready-to-bake options and the other with ingredients for consumers to cook from scratch. Regardless of which option you choose, all of the holiday essentials are available at lower prices from national brands. 

Turkey will be available for under $1/lb, while other holiday staples – stuffing, pie, vegetables, etc. – will also come at a lower cost. 

Prices are slashed 50% at Aldi 

Aldi is following a similar holiday dinner price cut. The grocery store chain will have over 70 holiday favorites discounted up to 50% off, including everything from side dishes, baking essentials, and charcuterie board favorites.
