This submission includes some preliminary conclusions from the analysis of data on grocery prices collected for the main study.</p> <p>The study confirms the view that grocery store prices vary widely across locations. It also finds the presence of a major chain in a town is a practical indicator of the price level of groceries in non-metropolitan centres. The major chain stores are more prevalent in larger population centres. </p></div> </div> </div> Mon, 20 Feb 2012 00:00:00 +0000 Anonymous 1191 at
