A dramatic drop in milk prices will be seen at Stewart’s Shops starting Monday, January 5. The price of a gallon of Stewart’s milk will be lowered 30¢, and the cost of a half gallon will decrease by 16¢.
A number of global and economic factors are leading to the price drop, but it is most significantly influenced by supply and demand. After a record year for milk supply to meet growing international demand, the tides have turned and global demand, including the need for U.S. exports, is lessening. The result is that the cost of milk will be lowered for the consumer.
Stewart’s Shops picks up fresh milk daily from more than 30 dairy farms in Saratoga, Rensselaer, and Washington Counties. That milk is processed at its dairy in Greenfield, and is also used to make other Stewart’s quality products such as ice cream, half and half, and eggnog.
Stewart’s customers can continue to enjoy added savings with their milk club card. Ten stamps earns customers a FREE ½ gallon of milk or ½ priced gallon of milk.
