Which of the major chains gives you best value for money?

The rise in the price of consumer goods has sparked much debate as to which chains give you best value for money. The answer is surprising – and emphasises the need for consumers to shop wisely for individual items.

A study undertaken by the consumer website, of the pricing of 50 national brands in Spar, Pick n Pay and Checkers stores around the country, since January 2012, shows very little pricing difference between the three chains.

“In January 2012 a basket of 50 identical grocery items cost R1033 in Spar, R1036 in Checkers and R1058 in Pick n Pay - a differential between Spar as the cheapest and Pick n Pay as the most expensive of only 2.4%” says Viccy Baker of Retail Price Watch.
