So, Bulk Barn's pricing model seems to be less "we buy in bulk and pass the savings on to you"

and more

"where else are you gonna get 50 lbs of yeast?"

@Modern_Industrial (Not to ruin the joke, but perhaps also Planet Organic? It's been ages since I was in the know on all that, but at least a few years ago there was very much a bulk competition between Bulk Barn and Planet.)

@keithzg Maybe! I was just fascinated by Bulk Barn personally. Usually when I go to a store starting with "Bulk", things are super cheap. I've just never seen this marketing strategy before.

@Modern_Industrial I kindof suspect their target demographic is at least in part people with lots of disposable income who want to feel like they're getting a deal.
