Questions about Supersol

I live in Connecticut and every other month I make a trip to the Five Towns for my Kosher meat..
I usually compare specials at Gourmet Glatt and Brach's, but this time I threw Supersol into the mix.
I was quite disappointed to discover that most of the specials were "out". I did purchase a family pack of chicken cutlets at the amazing price of $2.99 lb. I was absolutely shocked when I unwrapped the package and discovered just 2 whole breasts weighing a total of 6 pounds. I did call Supersol, I had never seen such large chickens, and the person in the meat department told me that was why they were on sale.
Is this typical of Supersol's practices?

  1. All does not have to be lost. Grind it up and you have ground chicken at the amazing price of $2.99/lb.

    I have bought some nice specials at Supersol. Like chicken breasts, family pack, for excellent prices. What I like is that some of their family packs are not too large, like chicken breasts would be 4 to a package, so I can put them straight to the freezer. In fact I just took one out this morning to make for shabbos. I also took out a package of turkey drumsticks that I bought for $.99/lb, beautifully packed directly from Aarons.

    Family packs of chicken cutlets tend to be odd sizes, which is why they are priced reasonably, although I have not had them at 3lbs a breast.

    1. 3lbs/each breast sounds like the chicken was on the larger size. But you can always cut it up and use it as chicken fingers or nuggets or strips for a stirfry.
