Wacky Deli Prices at Albertson’s

The big news here is that I have changed grocery stores.  After settling on King Sooper’s, I’m making a change to Albertson’s.  Yes, Albertson’s is still in business.  I think they have 2 or 3 stores in Denver.  I’m not sure about the rest of the country, but I do know they got pounded unmercilfully by HEB down in Texas and crawled out of there with their ass in a sling.

But Alberson’s is within walking distance of my my new pad, so it’s worth giving it a shot.  But an immediate red flag went up when I saw this pricing scheme:
