In the California Bay Area, about 7.99/lb (Safeway, Lucky, etc).

Winco, Sam's Club, Costco, Walmart are the only places you can pick up a decent brisket for a decent price in NorCal, less than $5 a lb. The cheapest I've seen chuck roast lately is $3.59 / lb at Winco. Normally it is in the $5.99 range.
Still, all those prices beat what we were seeing last year out here on the West Coast. Even Costco was $7.99/lb to $8.99/lb and higher. My local Raley's/Bel Air/Safeway were ridiculous with even higher prices. When that happens, pork and chicken.
Check out this place in San Fran: https://www.smartfoodservice.com/content/store/48/
Packer Briskets are on sale right now for $2.29 per lb. Normally $2.54 per lb.
You can also get the Angus packers for $2.59 per lb.
At least these are the current prices for my location. I don't know if there is any adjustment to the price down there.
I hit Costco in Santa Rosa and they had "ungraded: whole packers for 3.somthing (I think) and choice flats for 5.89 (got one for the upcoming weekend). A little better than Safeway or Lucky in the North Bay Area of California.
Also picked up a pork belly for 3.69/Lb and I have high hopes for that bad boy!!
