    I went to ValuFoods to pick up some Puritan chili that I thought was on sale, 4/5.00. When the cashier rang it in it came up as 2.49 each. I said that I saw in their ad it was 4/5.00 so he looked at the ad (see attachment). They had the Stew on sale but he said since it said "select varieties" that means only some of the stuff is on sale even though it's mentioned in the ad. Is that correct? I just thought it meant there were different varieties of "Puritan" products or "Chef Boyardee". There's not just one item made by either brand. It's the first time I've run into this situation. I put the chili back on the shelf because I wasn't spending 2.49 for a can of chili, especially when it was only mild!

    They're just a relatively small store in a small town. There's not really any "customer service dept" there. They don't even accept coupons. There's a handful of employees, mostly a family from Lebanon and a few people left over from when it was a Foodland under a different owner. The cashier was one of the "higher up" people there, so for what it was worth I didn't bother arguing. I had other stuff to get anyway, so I just put the chili back. Had it been a bigger store and a bigger chain (ie Sobeys or Superstore) maybe I'd pressed a bit more. I personally think it meant Puritan with their varieties like stew and chili (mild or hot), and Chef Boyardee with their varities (like Ravioli, Beefaroni, Spaghetti etc).

    I’d have pointed out that it specifically says ‘chili’. And asked why was your choice not the same.
    I have run into price matching problems when the ad says select varieties and the picture only shows a specific one. The store price matching has made me stick with the pictured type.
    I think that is fair - they are, after all, selling at a loss (or a lower, unexpected, profit.
