Here in Saint John, the grocery stores have BOGO! Took me some time to figure that one out.
You know, those magnetic signs they have outside stores, with fluorescent letters telling you what’s on sale?! A while back, I started to see BOGO, and both stores had it — both Sobeys and the Atlantic Superstore [which is Loblaws].
At first, I didn’t pay full attention … there’s so much information these days, so I don’t read everything I see, but BOGO was becoming more and more prevalent. Outside Sobeys, the snow piles were so high, so I only saw parts of the sign, saying BOGO Steak something. I thought perhaps it was some kind of beef?!
Then, finally in the other store, they had some type of ‘drive’, so there was BOGO all over the store and at last I saw what it was/meant:
Buy One Get One [free].
I don’t know if BOGO is a thing just here in Saint John, or if it is all over the country?!
Sobeys had a commercial on the radio, where they said something to the extent that «the second one tastes so much better…» (because it’s free).
Do they have BOGO where you live?
