Shaw's always surprises me!

What would be more helpful is if the nutrional values for the items were also considered, since also though these are seemingly "commodity" type items, there are definitely some quality differences amongst the sources you've chosen.

Thanks for adding Hannaford's. That is such a great store. Prices are right and there store name products are Great. This place is never crowded and the help go out of their way to make the customer happy. I suggest more people check out this grocery store.
