Overall, the most expensive items came from Harris Teeter, with three of the five reviewed items costing more there than at competitors. Harris Teeter only had one item, eggs, ranked as the cheapest item among the three stores.
Trader Joe’s had two of the cheapest items, chips and milk, at $2.69 and $2.89 respectively. However, fresh items like apples and eggs were the most expensive at Trader Joe's.
Target had the most average prices with eggs, milk and chips as second most expensive items of the three stores.
In terms of convenience, Target is by far the most accessible, as it is directly across from Granville Towers. But Target offers a smaller selection of items than both Harris Teeter and Trader Joe’s.
