A Letter from Our Owner Regarding Current Food Pricing

We would like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding during this unprecedented time of inflation.  Monthly and sometimes weekly, we have  quite literally received  price increase notices on all products including paper products, dairy, and especially meat.  Meat prices have risen for 8 consecutive months due to many factors but not limited to:

-Covid shut down and depletion of stock piles

-A surge in restocking since the country has opened  up

-Exploding demand from consumers to wholesale trade

-High feed costs

-Higher transportation costs

-Labor shortages  slowing the restocking levels

-Strong domestic  product exporting

Daily, we track every commodity market to movements and trends.  We truly make an effort to try to anticipate  trends and purchase in an effort to keep your costs  the lowest possible. .  We are suffering the same sticker shock that  you are.

The good news  beef prices  seem to have hit a  plateau  for now.  Unfortunately I don’t believe there will be any major relief in any commodity item until Fall 2021.

I can tell you that we will shop diligently and buy in bulk when necessary to keep prices as low as we can for you!


Thank you for your understanding,

Doug Helnore

Owner Best Bargains Inc.


Best Bargains, Inc. has been serving local and national companies since 1972. In 1972, Tony Marino felt there was a need to offer local residents and local restaurants the best food at discount prices. He decided to expand the company into a small cash-and-carry store, where local residents and businesses could receive the same restaurant quality foods with the same discounts he received. In 1990, the company moved to their current location off the corners of County Highway KD and Highway 50 in New Munster, WI. In 2019, Doug Helnore purchased the entire company. Doug has been a valuable asset to the company since he joined it in 1992. In the time that he’s spent at Best Bargains, Inc., Doug has worked in all facets of the company, including, working in the warehouse, driving the company vehicles, becoming a partner of the company, and most recently becoming the sole owner of the company. He is excited to continue the same great values Best Bargains, Inc. has become known for and to take the company to the next level.

We Carry Well Known Brands

Heinz, Butterball, Nestle, Perdue, Farmland, and Land O’ Lakes

Best Bargains, Inc. prides itself on offering great deals to the public. In exchange for frills, you’ll find competitively low prices. We are able to offer our products to many people in the community because we work directly with businesses and individuals. You will get the same value with us as you do with warehouse club stores that require a, sometimes annual, membership fee. We also offer you restaurant quality items at a fraction of the price of traditional grocery stores. We carry unique desserts, various types of seafood, many specialty items, and an incredible deli with numerous options. We also have both restaurant and catering supplies, available with everything you need for a get-together or other event.

We accept payments in the form of cash and check, but currently do not accept credit card payments. This allows us to avoid bank transaction fees, which is another way that we can keep our prices low.
