    Maybe you should find out what day of the week your supermarket gets their bread delivery then.

    I just put mine in the fridge in the bag it comes in and it lasts 1.5 - 2 weeks. In fact I usually end up tossing the bag with a few apparently decent slices left just because I got a new loaf. Maybe there's something weird with your container. Next time put half the loaf in the container and leave half in the bag and see what happens.

    I wouldn't trust that they got rid of the old even if they had such a day. Here's an article on the bakery. I've considered getting it direct, but it's not worth it. I actually started baking my own bread before Stop & Shop started selling Panera.

    People are storing bread in the fridge?

    I think if you seal out the moist refrigerator air it's good. I'll probably get a new bread keeper that closes at the end instead of the top and isn't as old as I am.

    Well, if it's crusty it's probably bad but mine isn't crusty.

    I'm the only one eating it so it will definitely be moldy before I get even half way through if I don't put it in the fridge. It stays edible a lot longer. Yeah there's a slight quality hit, but it's better than having to inspect it for mold and throwing away a half a loaf+ every week.

    Keep an old bread bag. Next time you buy bread, take half the loaf out and freeze it. There's less of a quality hit from thawed frozen bread than dry ass fridge bread.

    They won't get rid of the older bread it unless it's past the sell by date. In fact they probably put the new bread on the shelf behind the old bread so people buy the older stuff first. That's what they did at the store I used to work at.

    I've never heard of putting bread in the fridge. Freezer? Yep. Pantry? Double check. But not the fridge. I've had bread last a month in a dark pantry without any sign of mold. I wonder if places that do non-fridge chicken eggs have the same shock when hearing I've always put eggs in the fridge though.

    Someone should do a study.

    Buy smaller amounts of bread more often... then you don't have to worrying about it going bad or do weird shit like refrigerating and freezing it.
