day #20–question #20

why would a “family size” bag of potato chips cost a dollar less at menard’s hardware store than it does at copp’s grocery store?

i have no idea.

this goes against my basic understanding of the “convenience” section of stores. typically you pay extra for being able to buy food products in places that are more convenient than going to a grocery store. yet for some reason the normal menard’s price for a “family size” bag of potato chips is a full dollar less than the normal price at our local grocery stores. it makes no sense to me. can someone tell me why? i ask this because surely menard’s isn’t using the price of these chips to draw people in to buy plumbing supplies.
