Why are their oil prices so much more than other places? I live a couple blocks from here and would love to shop local but when they’re charging $30 for Solei Free oil and there’s a new leaf 2 minutes drive away who’s charging 22 (like everyone else is) why would I shop here.
Good morning and thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us. The government sets the base price which retailers then add a markup, to cover the costs of licensing and overhead etc. Our stores are locally owned and operated (most operated by franchise owners, including the location you visited), which results in a lot of care going in, however that being said, doesn't always come with the buying power that a massive corporation, as you mentioned, has. Due to this you will see the prices vary from store to store. The majority of the time when you're 'buying local' it will be more expensive when compared to the 'big box stores'. That is why we appreciate it so much when our community does choose to support us! We know we aren't the only option, and not always the cheapest, but our goal is for us to be the one you want to come back to. We strive to show our spirit through what we stand for, the atmosphere we create, whom we serve and the products we deliver. If you would like to tell us more about your experience please e-mail us at email@example.com. Update: The owners of this location have adjusted the price to be more competitive effective immediately. We hope to see you soon!
