SUNBURY, Pa. — Weis Markets here last week unveiled another round of price cuts, saying it has reduced the shelf prices on 2,600 staple items. The new prices will remain "frozen" until April, the company said.
In addition the chain, which operates 165 stores in the Northeast, said it would freeze the prices on another 624 products.
