And for families to save these days, the retailer is committing to offer a Select Easter food and Easter basket at last year’s price, under $100.
The store chain says it followed the same strategy last year to offer a full basket of holiday meal essentials at the same price as in 2021. Walmart says customers responded very well to that call and will do so again. for this Easter season.
“We know that’s still true for many of our customers, so we’ve decided to do it again, this time for food and the Easter basket. We’re offering both for less than $100 total, so our customers can celebrate Easter without compromise.Walmart said.
“Even with some food costs stabilizing, they remain high overall, especially for Easter essentials like eggs. That’s why we’ve worked hard to offset the higher cost of eggs by lowering the cost of other Easter essentials and offering a full meal at the same price as last year.”
The basket will include everything from popular staples to customer favorites like ham, green beans, cake, garnishes, traditional treats and everything you need to prepare a brunch or dinner.
