For Birmingham AL readers today is a sad day, but starts some great deals for you guys!

25 locations of Bruno’s and Food Worlds are beginning Liquidation today with prices 25-50% off.  It is also specifically stated in the ad that you CAN use coupons!

I can only imagine the finds you can get…

Go here for the media release about the event.

To see the list of stores affected go here. I did see on Bruno’s site that many of these stores weekly ads state that they will be tripling coupons on Saturday… I can’t see that still happening but you could try.

(thanks Jinny!)

    • Does anyone know the specific locations?

    • Have you heard about the Nordstom makeup deal???? It’s a GREAT deal! All of their ELF makeup is on sale for a $1 and you can get $7.95 back if you spend $15!!! You have to pay for shipping but the 7.95 cover more than that!just go to http://www.eyeslipsface.com and you’ll click on the makeup and see the deal! This is a great one to post!!!!

      The locations I know of are the McCalla Foodworld, Hoover/Hwy 31 Brunos, and I believe the Brunos on Hwy 150.

      When I went to the Wildwood Bruno’s closing a few weeks back, I noticed they had INCREASED the prices of many items that are typically coupon eligible and each time a greater discount was announced I would go in again and notice price changes again! I confirmed this with another couponer. Even with coupons I did not feel I was coming out cheaper!

      Those are not Nordstrom products from what I have been told. They are the dollar store brand.

      I just called the 150 store( Brunos) and was told that they are not honoring the current ad prices.This is not the store’s decision, but the liquidators are setting all prices. Example: AD price, Ground chuck 1.99 lb. Now 3.29 lb with 10 % off :( Dumb! The employees said meat prices are higher today than yesterday. Other items are slightly discounted, but if it is a item that never goes on sale or has coupons it may be a good time to scoop it up. Happy Mothers Day.

      My store in Prattville is liquidating and told me that they are not accepting coupons. Are other stores accepting them?

      The McCalla store started their liquidation today and I was not impressed. Everything was full retail, then slashed to 25%. I didn’t see anything 50% off. Spices, sauces and gravies were 40% off. Coupons are redeemed at face value only so I got a few things that I had higher value coupons that would match up well with the 25% off.
      McCalla store is also very strict about IP’s and the girl ended up entering them manually because a couple of them beeped.
      My best advice would be to wait until they further slash prices and you’ll probably get some canned goods, cake mixes, things like that for cheap:)

      Thanks for the report, Cathy – that’s my local store. Publix won me over from them as soon as they opened…

    • Angie

      The Foodmax in Tuscaloosa is not going to honor coupons or any ads. Talked with them yesterday.

    • Shannon

      Mobile store prices still seem high too.(I have gotten use to those Publix deals!) ;)
      Does anyone know when they will mark down further…tomorrow? Monday?

    • Triple coupons Saturday only Montgomery, AL Bruno’s. Sweet Mr. Bruno is rolling in his grave! So sad they are closing.

    • The last Bruno’s store that closed in Montgomery started with the 25-50% off…..then QUICKLY moved to 70……then 90!!!!

    • Shannon

      Thanks. I will let you know what I find down here this morning. ;) Hopefully they will move quickly too!

    • Shanna

      Do you know if there is a limit on the coupon value before it is tripled?

    • Cathy

      Th stores remaining open are tripling coupons up to and including 55 cents.
