Graff Dairy lowers price of milk
The nation’s economy has been in turmoil recently, but milk drinkers received some refreshing last week.
David Nichols, co-owner of Graff Dairy, lowered milk prices for the first time in months.
Milk prices at Graff Dairy, 581 29 Road in Grand Junction, are down 20 cents a gallon.
“When prices go up now, people sometimes say, ‘What’s the deal?’ But for the most part, they aren’t surprised anymore,” said Nichols, whose store has been in operation for 43 years.
“When prices went down, they were pretty shocked.”
The store experienced for the first time all year a price decrease by its supplier.
Milk costs had been on an increasing trend since early this year, he said.
Nichols said he observes the cost changes at the beginning of each month.
The latest trend on milk will last at least throughout the month, he said.
“We got a price change that went lower for us, and we just pass it right back to the customers,” he said.
