I have found this true in many cases. But...... The time and gasoline it takes to take advantage of the sale/promotion prices negates the savings. My local Big Box Warehouse store is minutes from my home and while it may not be cheapest place for everything, it is certainly among the lowest priced for most things. Given the value of my time and the cost of operating an automobile, I think I come out ahead.
