When I went through month-long shopping experiences at Hy-Vee, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, I didn’t know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with some experiences and disappointed in others. I learned more about these different stores and the products avaiable than if I’d simply gone through the motions. All in all, I’m glad I did it.
Since my test, I’ve mainly shopped at Trader Joe’s, but I’ve also made regular trips to Hy-Vee and Whole Foods, mainly for juicing goods!
Over the next few weeks I will be sharing product category reviews with you, focusing on price comparisons in the following categories:
- “Milk,” Eggs and other “Dairy” options
- Fresh Fruit
- Fresh Vegetables
- Misc. Items
