Walking down the aisle at the grocery store can be a discouraging journey these days. Not only are we experiencing shrinkflation — where our favorite grocery items are slowly getting smaller while the prices remain the same — but we’re also seeing our favorite discount retailers increasing prices. Nothing like walking around Dollar Tree when prices are no longer $1, but somewhere between $1.25 to $7 on some items. Although these changing products and prices may cast down our spirits, many retailers are trying to help shoppers fill their carts at prices they can actually afford. Recently Amazon Fresh has made the choice to do the same, offering discounted prices that shoppers can feel good about.

Amazon Fresh announced it will slash the prices of 4,000 weekly grocery items by up to 30%. These prices are available in stores, as well as online. The products that are discounted rotate on a weekly basis, giving shoppers a variety of food items to choose from that will suit their changing interest in recipes to cook at home. Both fresh and pantry items will be discounted, including items such as meat, seafood, frozen foods, dairy, cheese, beverages, snacks, and pasta, according to the original report from CNN.

Along with this major change, Amazon Fresh has also announced it is expanding its Prime Savings, giving Amazon Prime members the chance to save 10% on hundreds of grocery items when they shop online.

These particular deals are vital for shoppers to keep up with the ever-changing inflation of the grocery market. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, inflation grew for the third consecutive month in April. Despite the fact that some stores have been hit with inflation, other retailers have taken notice and are continuing to find ways to slash prices and help shoppers’ budgets. Target recently announced it is cutting prices on over 5,000 items, and Aldi has slashed the prices on 250 summer essential items on their shelves. Walmart is also discounting grocery items while also providing cheaper prices of high-quality food products through its new Bettergoods store brand.
