CTV grocery price comparison for April

obtained from www.calgary.ctv.ca

The price comparison was done by home economist Sylvia Kong as part of an ongoing series on price checks to be aired monthly on CTV.

Once a month, CTV will create a grocery list and compare prices at major Calgary stores. The prices are a snapshot on the given day.

All coupons and membership programs are included and some chains vary prices from store to store.

CTV priced out 36 items at the Southland Crossing Safeway, Macleod Trail Co-op, Fairmount Sobeys and Southport Superstore.

The best deal was at Superstore, where the grocery basket cost $122.95.

The same goods bought at Safeway cost $152.37.

At Co-op, the basket cost $140.85.

And it was most expensive to shop at Sobey's, where it cost $153.78

This week's best buys are: Rib Steaks for $13.21/kg at Superstore, Magic Baking Powder - 450 g - $3.74 at Superstore and Sweet Potatoes - $1.03/kg at Co-op.
