Can you freeze store bought pie on their sell/use by date?
The sell/use by date is the last date the store can legally sell the pie as a fresh item but does not mean there is a problem with the pie. The sell/use date is set so that you can purchase the pie on that date and still have sufficient time to safely eat it - a minimum of 2 to 3 days but usually longer. So if you feel safe in eating it when you take it home then it should be okay to freeze it.
If you freeze it soon it should be just as good (and favorable) as when they first put it out.
Yes. You can. The expiration date on bakery items is the last day it can be sold as fresh. A vacuum sealed bag works great, but I lots of times use a resealable plastic freezer zip-lock bag for bakery items with good success (better than wrapping it with seran wrap and by all means easy!).
You can. Wrap several times and seal the air out well.
You'll need to wrap the pies tightly in plastic wrap (even multiple) plus foil or use a freezer bag.
