The poster said in the post that he had to do a “double-take” because the price was so shocking that he thought it may have been a typo. 

The poster also said that in their experience “Sobeys is the worst-priced but the best selection”. 

Recently, CTV News reported that one other grocery store was selling a pack of chicken breasts for $37.

The outlet also reported that the chain confirmed and justified the price because it was a “premium” product.
