Butterballin’ on a budget? Aldi offers cheapest Thanksgiving spread, report says

Missouri shoppers seeking an inexpensive spread for Thanksgiving dinner may want to swing by Aldi to do their holiday shopping.

That’s according to a report from Bloomberg Intelligence, which surveyed 15 retailers across the U.S. to determine the price of purchasing Thanksgiving dinner from each.

The cheapest, based on a basket of 20 items including a 12-pound turkey, potatoes, corn and green beans, comes from Aldi.

The total cost of a Thanksgiving spread purchased from the German discount grocer? $35.83. That’s roughly $23 cheaper than Walmart ($58.94) and about $80 less than Whole Foods ($115.85), two other Missouri retailers that made the list.

The price of a Thanksgiving dinner from Aldi is actually about 14 percent cheaper this year than it was last year, according to Bloomberg Intelligence.

That’s due, at least in part, to turkeys being cheaper this year: 12-pound turkeys are $1.59 per pound this year, one cent less than a year ago.
