We compared prices of 13 common shopping items among five different supermarkets in Geraldton. It was Coles that came out on top with the lowest total price, followed by Rigters IGA, Woolworths, Wonthella IGA and Queens IGA.
But it's safe to say that it is a fairly level playing field with the cheapest total and most expensive total only differing $2.87.
Doesn't sound like a lot, but if you could save this much every week, it could be a total saving of nearly $150 a year.
Coles and Woolworths had the cheapest prices for meat and fruit while other than some specials, most supermarkets had similar prices for most products.
Weet Bix was the only product that had a consistent price throughout all supermarkets.
