Retail demand relationships for steak, ground beef, roast beef, chicken, pork chops, ham, and pork loin were examined using scanner data from a retail food firm located in Houston. Own-price elasticities were negative, statistically significant, and--except for roast beef--in the inelastic range. With few exceptions, cross-price elasticities were positive and statistically significant. Nearness to payday was not a key factor, but seasonal patterns were evident. Except for pork commodities, own-advertisement elasticities were positive and statistically significant. Generally speaking, cross-advertisement effects were marginal.
