A bunch of Canadian grocery stores are being investigated in a major bread price-fixing scheme.
Loblaws discovered that Canadians were overcharged for the cost of some packaged bread products in their stores and other grocery stores across Canada. In response, they’re offering eligible customers a free $25 Loblaws Gift Card, which can be used to purchase items sold in our grocery stores across Canada (stores listed below).
Registering for and obtaining the $25 Loblaw Card will not affect customers’ right to participate in any class action or to receive any incremental compensation that may be awarded by the court. This means you should register everyone in your family who’s over the age of majority (18 or 19 years old) for a free $25 gift card for. Make sure you register by May 8, 2018 in order to be eligible.
Shame on all the grocery stores for doing this for so long (14 years), but good on them for trying to make it right.
