Yes these are crappy food items but they are things that people buy and once I chose I have to stick to it.
Here are the basic finding from the three samples

2015 grocery 29

As well I did look at a few fresh items

 Walmart Mumford
Sobeys Mumford
SuperStore Young
Bananas.77.79.59
Zucchini1.471.991.49
Eggplant1.271.692.49
Plums2.993.993.99
Peaches1.973.991.99
Bnls/Sknls Chicken Breasts4.9910.993.99
Haddock Fillets9.976.996.99
Basket Total: (1 of each)$27.22$34.12$25.22

In this instance SuperStore came in first if I bought a pound of each, but based on their chicken being the weekly special, their regular price is more inline with Sobeys. I chose the highest price for WalMart chicken as they sell in $10 packs which ranged from .9 to 1.055kg

In short all three tests over the last 2 years shows that Sobeys is more, I’ll personally continue at SuperStore because more variety in fresh goods.

I will come back to this concept in the fall but I will factor in the little guys like Dave’s, Chops, Gateway, Avery’s, The Carrot etc.

    • going to revamp the idea in the fall, and cover stores all over HRM
      compare say the Sobeys in Tantallon to the one in Jeddore
      and add smaller retailers as well
