DEAR JILL: I have become so frustrated with supermarket ads. Before the pandemic, my local stores used to have multiple-page fliers with many sales items lists. Now, of the three stores in my area, one has eliminated paper ads completely, one has gone to a single-sheet ad and one has a four-page ad with extra pages only available online.
I know things are moving more in the direction of being digital only, but I wonder if stores realize this makes it so difficult to plan shopping trips. I still like to circle and make notes on my ads, and I also like to see what is on sale before I go to the store.
