Welcome to Week Three of Patch's local area grocery price watch in the Westford/Chelmsford area.
Welcome to Week Three of Patch's look at grocery prices in the Westford/Chelmsford area.
This week we began at Hannaford in Chelmsford and chose five items at random there and then went to a series of other grocery stories in the area to see how the prices compared, and starting this week, we'll choose a specialty shop or convenience store in the area and see how they compare with one or more items on the list.
Prices for all items were accurate as of October 25 and listed as they appeared on the price sticker.
Differences in size or quantity are listed where applicable.
