Default What's your going price for Ribs?

Just checked on updated prices at our local sam's club, and I couldn't believe the price on the ribs,, case prices are 4.74 a pound on spares and 3.39/ lb on loin back,,,, What are some of you others folks paying for ribs?
(Correction, Sam's Club screwed up), new employee miss informed us of the current case price, spares actually 1.80/ lb...

I have not bought a case in ages because I get them in 2 rack cryovac packs for $1.99/lb when not on sale and as low as $1.09/lb at times to $1.39/lb when on sale for the Farmer John Brand spare ribs.

Inflation is kicking the crap out of food prices. I expect things to keep heading north.

I got meetings setup with a couple different suppliers,, our local sam's club is way off the charts compared to everyone else. Absolutely no reasons spares should be 4.74/ lb case price,, that's ridiculous.

Hey Tiny,

Spares down in the Sam's Club in Easton, PA was only $1.67 per pound and that was the case price. That number was as of 1 week ago, I have not checked this week yet. If they went above 2.25 since then I am going to look somewhere else.
