Survey Why no double coupons in Fl?

I live in Central Florida (Hello, Ocala!) and I was curious if anyone knew why there are almost no stores in the whole state that double coupons? Looking at ads for stores in other states, I don't see that our prices are any cheaper because of the no doubling rule. Realistically thinking, I doubt that the incidence of Florida coupon fraud is so much worse than elsewhere in the country that we need to be penalized by no double coupon days at any store, ever!

The only store that I am personally aware of is Hitchcock's/Foodway and the closest one of those to me is about an hour drive away. The price of gas to get there & back would negate any savings that I would make on the coupons.

They did double coupons 25 years ago. However, when stores quit doubling coupons they all quit and have no reason to double coupons.

I always wondered why stores down here never double as well. My sister lives in North Carolina and SHE gets to double! I'm a bit jealous.

Fyi

I asked the same thing on another forum I belong to and out of respect for this forum I won't mention the name but I heard that the big shots at Publix would only double if competition stores would double and Big-K isn't one of their competitors.

Years ago stores in Florida used to double and some triple but stopped and there is no need to double if no competitors are doubling.

Publix in Florida never doubled even when Albertsons, Winn Dixie and Goodings (local store in Orlando) all doubled. They won't do it now in Florida since no one else doubles.

i heard the southern georgia stores typically don't double either because they don't want floridians to come up to shop. :/ i like publix and winn dixie but they don't double

If you are in SWGA, Don't you have a Harvey's nearby? If so, I think they double. I used to love Harvey's & still go there when I visit my Dad in Albany!
