As food prices continue to rise, one grocery store chain in Buffalo is rewinding its prices to pre-pandemic and pre-inflation levels.

Turkey prices may pose a threat to many Western New Yorkers' traditional Thanksgiving dinners this year, as certain factors have caused the price of the savory centerpiece to rise.

Turkey prices are soaring at 73 percent above last year's price.

According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, there are several factors affecting turkey prices, including feed, fuel, fertilizer, and labor costs.
