What is the name of your grocery store(s)?

I do most of my groceries at Sobey's because it is closer to where I live, but if we are around town, I prefer to do big shops at Zhers. Sometimes we also pick up a few things at Wal Mart.

Oh, and also, about once a month we go to the local farmers market. Love it!

We only have a Co-Op & an Extra Foods, so one of those. Although lately, EF has been really grubby & dirty, so it's been mostly Co-Op.

We normally go to Sobey's or No Frills. Loblaws or Price Chopper if we want something specific.

We've also been getting into this place called Almost Perfect. Its a frozen foods place that is amazing and has great prices.

Usually the Superstore, sometimes Sobeys or WalMart. About half the time I do my grocery shopping in the states and then I do WalMart.

We shop at Superstore or Sobeys but we always buy our meat & produce from local markets. In such a small province (PEI) we have to support our local farmers.

I go to the Superstore for my canned and dry foods and the meat market for meat and produce. Sometimes I go to Walmart if there is a good deal there, but mostly I buy my toilet paper and laundry soap and things like that there.

I go to Walmart for things like butter or juice. If you use butter, then you know its super pricey, its worth it to go to Walmart to get it I swear!

I shop mostly at Costco. I have the executive membership so I get back 2% on what I buy. I figure I need diapers and formula and wipes anyways, may as well get something back from it. Costco is the only place I will buy meat from. And lately the produce has been looking kind of horrible at Superstore and everywhere else so I will spend the little bit extra and get it from Costco.
