Cheapism has compared grocery prices for 41 common food items at three different types of stores: Walmart, the one-stop superstore; Aldi, a growing chain of discount supermarkets; and Kroger, the nation’s largest traditional grocery store. Aldi had the lowest prices on 80% of the products in our survey (33 out of 41).
For shoppers who favor national brands (which Aldi doesn’t carry), Walmart offered lower prices than Kroger. Still, Kroger’s wider selection will appeal to shoppers who want to make sure to get everything on their grocery list in a single trip.
