So I’ve always assumed that the butcher counter at the grocery store is more expensive. After all, you get exactly the amount of meat you want, give to you by a real person, right there.
Well, my grocery store has the meat considerably cheaper there! Usually $0.40/lb cheaper on ground beef, $2/lb cheaper for bacon. I love it!
