If you like wally-world, just stop reading now.
I would hate to make you mad.
If you aren't a fan, none of this is new to you.
In that case, I really don't need to continue.
Some of you have already quit reading.
And the rest of you are already informed.
But that's not gonna stop me.
Do I spend money at wally-world?
Do I go there more than I would like?
Do I complain everytime I go there?
There is no doubt that some things are cheaper there.
Personal hygiene, over the counter meds, other stuff.
But there are also plenty of things that are NOT cheaper.
In an effort to save a little money,
I have been doing some comparisons.
Between my not-so-favorite store and Dillons/Kroger stores.
Most of these have to do with baking.
Baking happens a lot at my house.
(I'm not going to argue over the canned goods, chips, cereal.
Dillons is not always cheaper with these,
but if you watch their sales
you can usually get them for the same price,
if not cheaper.)
Here's what I've found:
Sugar is almost 19 cents/lb. less.
Brown sugar and powdered sugar are 23 cents a bag less.
A bag of chocolate chips are at least 70 cents less.
(Dillons has a store brand, wally-world does not.)
Vanilla is 88 cents/oz. less.
These are all based upon regular prices.
And often all of these are on sale at Dillons.
I could list others...
But that would get old.
As if it already hasn't.
Also, produce may sometimes be less at w-w.
But Dillons' is sooooo much better.
Milk is the same price both places.
(Braums actually has the best price on milk.
If you don't have a Braums you are missing out.)
Oh, two other things I like about Dillons:
1) I rarely have to wait in line at the check-out.
That's enough said there.
2) They take your groceries out to your car.
Help you load your car.
Visit with you.
I've said my piece.
Shop where you want.
I promise I'll like you regardless.
I just may like you a little more if you shop at Dillons.
