Mine those hidden Christmas Grocery gems

Small stores have one great advantage over the multiples at Christmas. They can trade on Christmas Day while the larger store stares are closed. This opens up the opportunity to capitalize on emergency last minute purchases. There are a number of hidden sales gems in the Grocery department that offer good profit opportunities at low risk. Be prepared for sales increases across these products.
