Which Are the Best and Cheapest Supermarkets?
Some 10,000 shoppers were asked about their supermarket shopping experience, including which one they liked best, which had the best prices, etc. This year's overall winner may surprise you because they don't have physical stores. However, for price, Aldi won; for quality, Wegmans came in first; and for convenience, Walmart topped the list.
Tour of a Russian Supermarket
Some 20+ years ago, MrConsumer visited St. Petersburg, Russia... and all he really wanted to see was a supermarket and a department store. Times have really changed judging by this video by a Russian man, Dan Sheekoz, who is posting almost daily videos on YouTube. In this long video (do skip around), Dan shows you a small hypermarket. He compares grocery prices in Russia (like eight cents a roll for cheap toilet paper), and comments freely about all the non-natural food products they stock, including all the sweets that he believes cause cancer. Enjoy.
