We have a chain here called Food 4 Less! It is awesome!! Huge grocery store. Great selection and prices! Meats and produce are always very fresh ! I find when I shop here I get way more bang for my buck than at other grocery stores!

It is affiliated with the Ralph's/Kroger chain!! But the stores are much bigger!!!

When I lived in the city my old house was within walking distance of a Food 4 Less and when it first opened Mom and I used to spend hours buying food and buying candy for ourselves and the prices for food were impressive and we would learn about Food 4 Less's sales from the radio commercials and they were the only store where Mom and I would buy ourselves boxes of Little Debbie Banana Twins. We also had Ralph's grocery stores too and when we went in one twice we were surprised at how great Ralph's was and they had sales on many things Mom and I loved to buy and not only did Ralph's have groceries but they had a section full of 5,99 movies and music cds too. But then Ralph's closed but it was a cool grocery store and believe it or not I have a Ralph's keychain card that is on my Baby Phat purse that I got as a souvenir from a first shopping trip to Ralph's. But if you want to find good deals on groceries real cheap try Safeway because every Friday they have sales called Friday 5's and you can find good prices on many items such as Nabisco cookies Ore-Ida fries Jimmy Dean sausages and lots more but then sometimes they have deals on new items where you can get an item for free and it's a really good money saver

Some store brands or off-brands are just as good as the name brands for the most part.

The only thing I'll buy that's a name brand is pop...to me, most store or off brands of pop is like drinking sugar water...but then again...

Frito-Lay makes Tostitos, but they're pricier than another tortilla chip brand I buy from Frito-Lay...Santitas. Just as good and half the price....

When I was born my mom was a huge fan of Alpha Beta and she always would find good deals on lots of groceries including my baby diapers and baby formula and every time Mom would bring me to Alpha Beta the store clerks always would know that I was coming and would give Mom extra discounts on my baby formula and baby food. It's hard to find good deals at supermarkets now because ever since stores such as Kmart Walmart and Target started selling groceries I think in a few years the supermarket chains will continue to exist but will have a new image and start opening wherehouse type grocery stores where people can find cheap discounts on many items such as meat sodas produce and cereal and other things at great prices. But I have a feeling that the supermarket chains such as Alpha Beta Pathmark Albertson's and Jewel "Not the singer but a supermarket that's owned by Albertson's that has that same name" will make a comeback and reintroduce themselves to a new generation of grocery store shoppers who want good deals on groceries today

My dad goes to Market Basket, which is a local place that has locations in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. They have cheap groceries and Shaw's (before the location in my hometown closed) sometimes had marked down prices, but the store was mostly expensive. Stop & Shop is not cheap at all and is very expensive.

We shop at both Market Basket and Stop & Shop. We shop only the sale items and specials at S&S and get our staples at MB, and it works out fine. I can't believe the price of food these days.

Most of those chains haven't opened a store in my area (yet).

I've had good luck with Kroger though, like getting strawberry preserves and pitted plums for about half of what other places charge.

Also once in a while, Dollar Tree has a great deal: big bags of Snyder's pretzels, Kraft Miracle Whip, Keebler crackers, and Ultimate Helper (General Mills), $1 each. They even had 32 oz. Welch's Grape Jelly once at $1.

I'm a big fan of Dollar Tree. The store here only has 4-5 aisles of groceries, but it is so worth it to stop there, since nearly everything's $1.00. The Snyder's pretzels are a good deal, as are the cereals (where else can you get name brand Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Raisin Bran for $1.00?). Good deals.

Another supermarket that you can check out for cheap groceries is Grocery Outlet Bargain Market and they have good prices on tons of groceries like they have deals on Kraft Macaroni And Cheese for $2,99 to Dawn dish soap for $1,99 and Buy 1 Get 1 Free sales on Red Baron Pizza and Swanson TV Dinners and when you shop at Grocery Outlet Bargain Market you actually save better than at any other supermarket and not to mention the cute commercials with the cute puppets. Mom is a fan of Grocery Outlet Bargain Market and she goes there often to find good deals on groceries. If you have a Grocery Outlet Bargain Market in your city I advise you to visit there and you'll be very surprised at the neat prices they have and they also have stuff you cannot find anywhere else
