The average supermarket prices have seen a dip of 2.2% in September compared to a year ago and consumers are finding they can buy more with less. Craig Peterman of Craig’s Piggly Wiggly in Algoma says he has seen a noticeable difference in his store.
According to the USA Today, a pound of ground beef dropped from $4.13 to $3.66 and a dozen eggs were half of a year ago at $1.47. The supermarket industry has seen ten consecutive months of lower prices on an annual basis this year so far.
