    The prices in brackets are the prices from April. They do this comparison every three months. The basic lowdown is that Real Canadian Superstore was the cheapest both times.

    Thanks. That's confirmation of what I've known for years. The catch is the quality of produce and meat in the various stores. Superstore, while cheaper, isn't always the best quality. For that I go to Sobey's.

    The walmart one does not surprise me. Go figure.

    I usually shop at RCSS vs Sobeys b/c its known Sobeys is right up there in pricing though I do agree with Peanut - the quality isn't always the best at RCSS.

    Then factor in that we got to the Asian market more often then big box stores for produce and meat.

    I usually get my meat from Sobey's too because they sell the big packs of pork steaks. I don't mind the hamburger so much. I buy the frozen chicken breasts from Superstore and their thighs, but I don't touch the pork steaks or the regular steaks from RCSS.

    I know this is an older thread, but I wanted to say "thanks" for going to the trouble to post it. It's great info!

    I agree that there is no surprise in the way the pricing falls. I also agree that I prefer to buy meat from certain stores (Sobeys & Co-op for me). We don't eat much meat anyway, so it's not an issue to pay a few cents more.

    I am very fortunate to have each of these stores within walking distance of my house so I can take advantage of sales at all of them.

    Great thread...

    But Safeway when shopping the loss leaders and getting bonus airmiles can be a great deal too!

    Check out Big Lots for some super cheap random dry goods and cleaners

    I try not to shop at Wal-Mart for moral reasons, but it's hard not to sometimes...

    Very thought provoking groceries are so expensive. I can barely afford fresh produce and it is what is on sale. Meat has gone way up here also. We have a food city, a super dollar owned by food city and a save a lots here.

    I think it's so interesting to see what the prices are in other areas & countries -

    Canada is much higher than the SE US - I'm not sure how it would compare to other US areas -

    hmmmmmmm
