Shoppers across Sheffield are spoilt for choice with a number of major stores to choose from. Every week we compare prices across a range of items found in a typical weekly shopping basket to help you decide where you’ll get the best value.

How did the supermarkets compare?

There are some great deals to be had this week, wherever you choose to shop. Tesco and Sainsbury’s had the most competitively priced fish fingers at 69p for a pack of ten, while a bunch of six bananas came in at just 47p at M&S.

RIVER FALLS, WI/USA - MAY 26, 2019: Aldi grocery store sign. Aldi is is a global discount supermarket chain based in Germany.

Iceland, while more expensive across the price of the total shop, had a number of bulk buys that pushed the price upward. Baked beans were the second best priced across the shops we compared at 50p per can but were only available as a bulk buy of three tins. The same applies to tinned tuna, which was only available as a four pack.

Which Sheffield Supermarket was most affordable?

As our table shows, overall, the most affordable place to buy this week’s shopping basket was Aldi, which has superstores at St Mary’s Gate, Flora Street, Archer Road, Handsworth Road, Drakehouse Way, Fox Valley Way, Littlefield Road, and Ecclesfield.

Our 19-item price comparison basket came in at just £13.29. Prices are correct as of Thursday 11 February.
