  • Bottom Dollar 37 cent turkeys

    The BEST deal is at Bottom Dollar. Butterball processor Jenny O Turkeys (Grade A) are just 37 cents per pound. Bottom Dollar means the cost of merchandise is at the bottom of competitor pricing in the Philly area, for quality product, because of low labor and building overhead. BD is NOT SAVE(schlock)-A-LOT

      Ugh! By a butterball if you want a hormone laced, antibiotic dipped carcinogen inducing bird. Did I mention the abuse that they endure while being raised…did I mention the arsenic that they are fed? I could go on…….
