Should it be

"The day before yesterday we went to a supermarket and (we?) bought beef and chicken"

Or it should be

"In the day before yesterday we went to a supermarket and (we?) bought beef and chicken"?

There is nothing wrong with the original sentence; you do not need a preposition:

The day before yesterday, we went to a supermarket and bought beef and chicken.

(I did add a comma after yesterday.)


However, if you want to add a preposition, you can do so. But it should be on rather than in:

On the day before yesterday, we went to a supermarket and bought beef and chicken.

Note that even though it's grammatical, this sounds slightly odd to me. (It may sound fine to others.)
