One of the facts of life in Ann Arbor is the
high cost of food.
Since there are thirteen large local grocery
stores competing for a share of the student
food dollar, most students end up picking one
store to patronize without taking the time to
compare prices among stores.
But a group of students in an introductory
economics course and members of Public In-
terest Research Group in Michigan (PIRGIM)
recently made a comparison of prices among
local grocery stores to determine which stores
are cheapest.

The accompanying table represents the re-
sults of a grocery store price survey made
last week. The table ranks thirteen super-
markets in an order which lists the store with
the lowest overall prices first and the remain-
ing stores in the order of increasing overall
prices. The store with the lowest overall prices
receives 100.0 as a rating, while the other
stores get ratings relative to that 100.0.
The table also includes the ranking of six
subgroups of products. The ratings for these
categories are again relative to the base rat-
ings of 100.0.

By DIANE LEVICK
"They're pigs!" comments one
shopper who feels the pinch of
high Ann Arbor food and drug
prices.
One of the first things Uni-
versity freshmen learn is that
convenience costs money. Most
on-campus food and drug stores
charge much more than large
off-campus chain stores.
In a Daily survey conducted
last summer, it was found that
prices were from 29 to 36 per
cent higher on campus than in
downtown Ann Arbor.-
The A&P on Huron offers
students what is probably the
best deal in campus prices, fol-
lowed closely by the Village

Corner. A&P prices are general-
ly lower than those at White
Market or Food Mart, but some
items, like Dannon yogurt, are
more expensive.
Drug store items may not put
such a dent in students' pockets.
VIP Discount Center on State
St., Kresge's, and the Univer-
sity Cellar are in close compe-
tition with each other.
The highest campus prices are
found at the Quarry on State
St., while Marshall's Drugs, on
the other side of the street, of-
fers students a 10 per cent dis-
count card.
Here's a comparative sampl-
ing of prices from campus-area
drug and grocery stores:
