Grocery Price Comparisons for November 30th

Updated: Dec 4, 2023

By Sophie Zhang, November 2023

Here is a price comparison among major grocery chains in the Calgary area. This week Costco provides the best prices on this particular basket of goods. The prices shown in pink are the best prices in the given category.


  1. Costco's prices are retrieved from the same-day, Instacart site. Our research shows these prices are generally 15-20% higher than what you will find in a Costco warehouse. As this is the case the prices from Instacart have been adjusted 15% lower. If this adjustment was not made Superstore would have the best pricing.

  2. Costco does not carry Maple Leaf bacon or Robin Hood flour. Kirkland bacon and Great Plains flour were used instead.

  3. Superstore has a price of $5.45 for butter this week. But customers are limited to one unit. As this is the case, this analysis averaged the price with the regular price of $6.49.

  4. T & T did not have smooth, Kraft peanut butter. This price is for crunchy, Kraft peanut butter.

  5. Sugar is out-of-stock at both Co-op and Superstore. Please read Ella's post about sugar shortages to learn more.

  6. Most grocery chains update their sale prices on Thursday. So these prices should be valid up to and including December 6, 2023. Of course, grocery chains can and do change prices without notice.
