Food Basics

This is a Canadian chain, but it's also now in the USA, and they upgraded their website to reflect that. (Looks like Michigan, Jersey, Ohio, Philly and Brooklyn.) http://www.foodbasics.com You can see their flyers online. They are so amazingly cheap, it's the cheapest place I've found around. I got about a weeks worth of shopping, including laundry detergent and diapers, for my family of 5, my cat, but not my dog food, for $48. I still could pick up some meat but -- it's ok. Lots of name brands, stuff for a dollar. Dannon yogurt for 33 cents. Bread for $1.38 a loaf (here in NYC it's over $2 a loaf). Margarine for 78 cents. Hunts pasta sauce for 78 cents. General Mills Cereal for $1.98. Sugar I think is 47 cents for the box. If you are the soda sort, no name 3 liter bottle for 98 cents. Again remember these prices reflect NYC prices and you may not be as amazed by the discount but if you have one of these stores near you maybe the prices are lower. (i.e. in Ohio the chunk light tuna, chicken of the sea, 65 cents a can. You can't get for less than a dollar here.) You need to bring your own bags or buy their bags, and bag it yourself. It is very low frills. They pretty much just slice open the case and shove it on the shelves, it's not fancy at all, no discount cards, no late hours, no bakery or pharmacy, etc. Instead of 20 kinds of ketchup, they have maybe two. Maybe 2 brands, 3 brands of pasta ( Renzi, Ronzoni and Barilla in this case) and maybe 6 shapes of each brand. Unlike the fancy place near me that has a whole aisle of pasta. But hey, if I can get a bag of pasta for 50 cents, and the sauce for 78, that's a meal for us (I'll add cheese or more but that's the heart of the meal and that's not bad). So hope you have one near you. And if it matters, at least the one near me is unionized. Hope this helps some of you!
