Asda has retained its title of the UK’s cheapest online supermarket in October, beating the most expensive option by over $ 28.91. According to new monthly research, the “big four” supermarket still offers the most affordable prices for the weekly online shopping.
Based on a shopping cart with 42 daily items, the supermarket giant was not only the cheapest at € 138.89, but the total amount of the shopping cart had even fallen by € 0.43 despite the fact that food prices had risen to the highest level, according to the price monitoring website Alertr, which tracks the six major supermarket chains Asda, Morrisons, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Ocado. Lidl and Aldi were not included because they currently do not have a full online store.
The price of food in UK stores rose in November at its highest annual rate since measurements began in 2005, another blow to households struggling with the cost of living, a new study shows. According to the British Retail Consortium (BRC), fresh food prices this month were 14.3% higher than a year ago.
