Thanksgiving Price Check: Good Cents vs. Bottom Dollar Foods
Patch bought six identical or very similar items at Ross Township's two, side-by-side discount grocery stores to see which had the lower prices.
At least when we shopped Thursday afternoon. All of the items we purchased were the same size and either identical, or comparable brands.
We did take advantage of the Bottom Dollar membership card, which resulted in lower prices on four of the items. Good Cents also has a membership card, but their prices are the same with or without the card. Instead, card-carrying customers are offered Good Cents coupons, and are entered in a monthly drawing for a $50 gift card.
|Item||Good Cents||Bottom Dollar|
|Cranberry Sauce (store brand)||$0.88||$0.77|
|Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup||$1.49||$1.09|
|Mini-marshmallows (store brand)||$1.19||$0.98|
|Fresh Yam (0.08 lb)||$0.33||
|(2) Stuffing (14 oz)||$4.76||$4.96|
