|Ktaft Shred||6.97||6.99||5.99||used to be 340g now 320g|
|Green Giant Frozen||2.97||3.49||3.49|
|Nielsen Organic Milk 2L||4.97||6.59||6.79|
|Basket Total: (1 of each)||$109.95||$124.86||$113.27|
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
As well I did look at a few fresh items
|Walmart Mumford||Sobeys Mumford||SuperStore Young
|Bnls/Sknls Chicken Breasts||4.99||10.99||3.99|
|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.
