How 2 Maine stores are dealing with wildly fluctuating egg prices

At Tozier’s Family Market in Brewer, egg sales have fallen by two-thirds in recent months. At an IGA in Rangeley, they sell at a normal pace to wealthier residents who have flocked there from out of state.

That can change. Prices have fallen recently but are expected to pick up again due to national factors including inflation and supply disruptions.

The biggest factor behind high prices is bird flu, which caused shortages last summer and drove up egg prices. Tozier’s customers in Brewer gasped in the aisles when they saw prices more than double earlier in the year at $1.70 per dozen large eggs, manager Dale Tozier Jr. said.
