Fairway olive oil on sale

Just a quick FYI ... I didn't even notice a sign or anything but this morning I got the 1 litre of regular Fairway olive oil for $5.99. A great price for what I consider to be a very good everyday-type olive oil (it is usually $8.99).
Yeah, that is a good price. I just paid $8.99 a week or so earlier for the same oil. :(
I meant to post yesterday but never got around to it. Fairway took out a full-page ad on the last page of yesterday Times' Dining section. I've never seen them advertise like this; an interesting coincidence to TJ's grand opening this week.
In addition to the olive oil, the ad had these specials:
Fairway organic milk 1/2 gallon $2.99
Fairway raw or toasted almonds $4.49 / lb
Fairway supreme blend coffee $4.99 / lb
I've never seen them advertise like this; an interesting coincidence to TJ's grand opening this week.
Hell, even the Pioneer (ahem) over on Columbus suddenly left a pile of dolled-up color sales sheets from the local store in front of my building!
I've never seen the print ads like this either. But they do a lot of online stuff -- twitter, email newsletters, etc. And then there are those awesome coupons that come in the mail (seemingly with no rhyme or reason as to when).
And I never saw a sign in the store either about the sale. I picked it up because I needed it (and this was a week I could carry it). It was only in looking at the register and then Reine (cashier) said it was on sale.
The cheese guy I talk with in the morning said he thought this (TJ) was why they rearranged the bulk aisles upstairs -- more competition.
That's good to know. Fairway's olive oil is quite good although we have been buying the Tuscan oil at Costco lately for $12.99 and it is excellent.
