Each time more expensive! Walmart in Plaza Galerías is northern Mexico’s most expensive supermarket

Another supermarket in Tijuana was crowned as the cheapest one in this same zone

Buying goods, items and food for homes is something that is done regularly weekly, biweekly, or monthly as families go to supermarkets to purchase everything they need.

Though this is a necessary activity, constant price increases in products makes people buy less things or spend more money on regular items. These same items, however, vary in cost depending on which supermarket chain they are sold at.

Taking this into account, the head of the Federal Consumer Agency (PROFECO), Ricardo Sheffield Padilla, reveals every week a list of the supermarkets where you can buy the most expensive and cheapest basic baskets.

On Monday, July 17, he shared that the Walmart Supermarket located at Plaza Galerías Hipódromo in Tijuana was ranked 1st place as the most expensive supermarket in the country’s northern zone (comprising the states of Baja California, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Sonora, Tamaulipas, and Nuevo León) as it offers the basic basket at a price of $994.30 pesos.

Products that are part of the basic basket, according to PROFECO, are the 24 items that are meant to supply a family of four members for a week. These items are the following:

1. Edible vegetable oil 1 piece of 946 ml
2. Grains of rice 1 kg
3. Tuna flakes in oil (maximum 5% of soy) 2 cans of 140 g
4. Standard sugar 1 kg
5. Beef 1 kg
6. White onion 1 kg
7. Jalapeño pepper 1 kg
8. Pork 1 kg
9. Black beans 900 grs
10. Chicken eggs, 1 package of 18 eggs
11. Bar of soap 1 piece
12. Tomato 1 kg
13. Dairy milk 5 liters
14. Lime 1 kg
15. Apple 1 kg
16. Banana 1 kg
17. White bread 1 package of 680 grs
18. Potato 1 kg
19. Toilet paper 1 bag of 4 rolls
20. Pasta for soup 1 package of 220 grs
21. Chicken meat 1 kg
22. Sardines with tomato 1 can of 425g
23. Corn tortilla 4kg
24. Carrots 1 kg

In this category, ranked as one of the cheapest supermarkets was the Calimax supermarket located at Blvd Cuauhtémoc in Colonia Zona Río, crowned in this ranking as it offered these aforementioned items at a price of $873.10 pesos.
