I did a study a decade ago, and my results match Michael Prentice's: http://johnsankey.ca/foodprices.html

I shop around, but I do it at the same store. I price match. You can do that at FreschCo, Real Canadian Superstore and Walmart Super Centres. You may be limited to how many you can buy at FreshCo. Costco is great, but you don't always want the huge quantities.

Did you consider Walmarts price match. If you bring the flyer that shows an item that Walmart carries, they will match the price. But you need to be organized.

For a big family, Costco is the best. Their business model is great. They make special deals with one or two products only guaranteeing that no other competitor produhcts on their selves. In the other hand, they get very low price. Usually they select best products in the market.

What about Food Basics? We shop at the Food Basics at Herongate (rated 2nd for service of all Food Basics in Ontario) and we often find their prices beat Costco's prices e.g., Balderson cheese 3 year old 500 g $10.00.

Ha...It used to be $10 now it is $12.49. (oh and BTW they moved its location) And I can't believe it is rated second in service there is NEVER enough cashiers and the line ups go for miles at times.
