BENTONVILLE, Ark., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Farm Bureau
Federation (AFBF) recently reported that Americans will pay $49.48 to feed 10
people this Thanksgiving – up from $49.20 last year. Shoppers at Walmart will
save more than 25 percent for the same Thanksgiving meal, spending $36.72


"Our customers rely on Walmart to help them stretch their paycheck, especially
when it comes to feeding their families during the holidays," said Jack
Sinclair, executive vice president of grocery, Walmart."As the country's
largest grocer, we have an opportunity to leverage our size and scale to
deliver everyday low prices on the Thanksgiving items our customers want for
their families."

"We aren't in the business of high-low pricing or gimmicks like pre-qualifiers
and loyalty cards. Our goal is to provide customers with low prices on
everything, every day. The holiday season is no exception."

"To give our customers added confidence that they will get the lowest price,
our ad match guarantee  will continue to be in effect throughout the 2012
holiday season – and will include all of our customers' Thanksgiving fixings
and holiday entertaining needs at low prices – helping families to save money
this holiday season," Sinclair added.

Note: A total of 155 volunteer shoppers from 35 states participated in Farm
Bureau's informal survey this year. The products Walmart used in this
analysis are identical to items included in the AFBF report. Shoppers can
