    Okay, can I be the first to say that I REALLY RESENT No Frills and RCSS for downsizing their paper flyers?!? Did y'all notice?? There's a bunch more flyer pages online than in the paper versions.

    Grrrrrr.

    I know so many people who only have paper, and don't use DIGITAL for their shopping...or, who are old fogies like me who just prefer paper flyers...putting all the pages online ANNOYS ME!!

    (Yeah, I bet you didn't miss the blurbs....lol!)

    Thank you Cyn. Totally agree about the digital flyer, went to No Frills last week, no flyer in store either, just a sign saying to check for the deals online. Of course they don't offer free wifi. I picked up two things I needed and left. Haven't put in a complaint yet but I plan to.

    I think free WiFi is a great idea as well(however RCSS's WiFi is not the most reliable). While I was shopping last week I overheard a customer asking where the flyers were. A staff member sd they are only printing the popular items in the 1 pg flyer and otherwise have gone digital to cut costs.

    If you have the app most times you are still able to PM without turning your data on.

    If they cut costs, are they passing the savings on to customers? Probably not!

    About digital, Home Depot tried that too. I just went to the customer service desk and asked to see their flyer. They said I could not take it away. Then they posted a flyer behind plexyglass. One page at a time. They said many customers complained or walked out.

    Some Freshco stores has the flyer does that too.
    NF will lose customers if they force them to go digital only.

    Shame No Frills. Shame on you.

    I haven't received paper flyers to my address in about 2 years now and I admit looking online it was a big adjustment. I am ok with digital now because I am used to it, but there are many customers who don't have a cell phone, or for other reasons will resist this change.

    Yeah I get it I mean places like metro that post every single item in the store at their overpriced prices doesn't make sense I'd rather just see a flyer with big sales and deep discounts
    Thanks for posting

    If you shop at a GTA Longos store, your digital flyer will have the online specials listed and pharmacy offers. But flyers for Ancaster, Guelph and a couple of other locations don't have those features when you look at their digital versions. So sometimes I choose the Burlington Fairview store to get the longer digital flyer and look around (though I get Grocery Gateway e-mails and specials).

    Think this is the year that the paper and digital flyer gap is going to be bigger than ever (more stores keeping digital flyers and cutting back or stopping the print versions except for small ads featuring a few specials in local papers (if they exist).
