there has been much buzz over Target’s entry into Canada and the unreasonable expectations from some that this would mean lower prices for goods as a result. Any regular readers of this Blog know that this is a totally unreasonable expectation.
Recently the National Post published an article based on a March 2013 study by Kantar Retail. They visited Target and Wal-Mart locations within 5 miles of each other in the GTA and did a price comparison. http://business.financialpost.com/2013/04/05/target-canada-prices/
Now we all know that I don’t like to let sleeping dogs lay so I did my own visit to the local Phoenix Wal-Mart today to see what our neighbours pay for the same shopping list. Now the article didn’t have sizes so I selected the most popular ones. I may be out a bit on some items but you will get the idea.
