Loblaw gift cards offered for bread price-fixing scheme
Loblaw has opened registration for 25-dollar gift cards it's offering after the company's participation in a bread price-fixing scheme came to light.
The company says the rebate is being offered to adults who've purchased any of several kinds of bread from any of the grocery chains it owns.
Recipients of the cards are not prohibited from participating in any possible class-action lawsuit, but must agree to have the 25 dollars deducted from any possible damages awarded in the future.
Several class-action lawsuits have been started against the company since it revealed last month that it and parent company George Weston participated in what they called an industry-wide arrangement over 14 years to co-ordinate the prices of some bread products.
