Lobsters $4.99/lb at ShopRite in Bayville

With a PricePlus card. Wish I didn't already have dinner made and in fridge!

  1. I think that's the price in all their stores bought some for Christmas Eve dinner. Has been that price since summer so you should be ok for dinner tomorrow or next week! Enjoy!

      I check the price when I do the weekly grocery shopping. It's been $8.99 and $9.99 per pound for the past couple months around here.

      Maybe for New Years Eve

        Wow really? The two in Neptune and West Long Branch has been in that range since summer.

    2. The South Jersey Shoprite ad 12/3012 - 01/05/12 does not show the whole lobsters being on sale however I believe they were in the $5.99 lb range all summer/fall with an occasional $4.99 lb.

      I bought a case of frozen cold water tails @ Restaurant Depot in November for $14.99 lb. I wrapped them in butcher paper to cover the sharp shells and then vacuum sealed them in batches of 2. They have great flavor & texture & the convenience of having them sitting in the freezer next to aged NY strip steaks is great.

          I hear that a lot. If you are near Philadelphia I can steer you in the direction of whole primals that dry age on the bone hanging on hooks.
