Things cost too much money!!! Nothing is wrong with the website though 8D

The multi year drought in central Texas caused increases to food prices particularly meats and vegetables. The best buys on meats are family pack and buying in bulk. Vegetable prices are better at stores like Fiesta and the Asian markets on the west and southwest areas. I see prices on staples like cilantro, bananas, potatoes, rice, beans, onions, lettuce at up to 30 - 40 percent below the chains like Kroger and Randall's.

The prices above are very accurate. I have lived in Houston for over 30 years in the city center and surrounding smaller suburbs. Grocery stores are highly competitive! Kroger, Randall's, HEB, and Foodtown are some of the biggest names. Over 30 new stores opened in 2014 from brands Costco, ALDI, WholeFoods, Sprouts, Trader Joes, Target, Walmart Super centers, Sams Club, and Fiesta. The city is saturated. Two or 3 stores face each other. That's a good thing for consumers. Current low gas prices makes it easy to shop for deals.

In-stores coupons issued by a store are standard and usually offer more savings. Buy-1-Get-1-Free are common. These are better around major holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, a Independence Day, New Years Day and Easter. In-stores coupons offer up to 10 items free with purchase of 1 item! Regular coupons are accepted.
