>Chicken leg & thigh or qtr's $0.77/lb

And their non-ad items. I flew through Von's after work yesterday and
snagged a nearly-ripe canteloupe for 50 that just happened to catch
my eye. Not savvy about marketing, but I doubt this would be
categorized a "loss leader" if it's not advertised? I mean, you can't
grow, harvest and transport canteloupe for 50 - along with an English
muffin, it made a tasty breakfast.
