And America’s Cheapest Grocery Store Is…
We are all looking for those deals on groceries and if you eat a lot like me, they can be expensive! Whether you cut out coupons from the Sunday paper, print them online or just have so much free time to hit different grocery stores in the same day to compare prices (who does this?) you end up going to buy the cheapest groceries.
According to the dunnhumby study, which surveyed about 7,000 U.S. households and used public financial data, there were 13 winners of grocery stores by lowest prices. The “winners” in Price is this study may not actually have the cheapest grocery prices, but rather are ranked best in how their customers perceive their prices based on what is most important to them such as prices compared to other retailers, prices on natural/organic products and likability of store brands compared to brand names.
Now, some we don't have in the Cedar Valley but the number one cheapest grocery store in America, according to customers preferences, we do have and it is.... Aldi! That's right, due to private-label products at low prices, smaller stores and customers bringing their own bags, the chain grocery store has secured the #1 spot.
