The spread of food prices that have suffered in recent months has put many supermarkets in check, which are constantly looking for the best ways to promote their products and therefore avoid a large loss of customers. Among these chains is the distribution of Mercadona, whose products can be found at half price depending on which day of the week the purchase was made.
The instrument that arises from these offers is the “down” or downward negotiation, which consists in the search for products with a “price drop, the title of the following day’s consumption, marked with its yellow color, so as to obtain a sign of savings. the highest purchase. This measure is also the issue of the stock it serves, which would cease to waste others.
Ideal day and time
Large grocery chains offer their items at lower prices on days when part of their stock is released. In the company of Juan Roig, it is Saturday, in order to respond to its special policy of not opening on holidays or Sundays. The main reasons behind this plan are that many people do not work on this day of the weekend and also try to complete the rest of the company’s new products so as not to consume large amounts of food.
Thus, taking into account that its stores are filled on Monday, Mercadona can apply a discount of up to 50% on Saturday, especially if you go to the stores in the afternoon, the closest closing time.
