Which supermarket was the best value this week?

Shoppers across Edinburgh and the Lothians are spoiled 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, Aldi and Sainsbury’s all offering 69p for five bananas.

Morrison’s, meanwhile, had the best deal on 80 teabags with a pack costing just 89p at the stores.

Which Edinburgh supermarket had the best value shop?

We tweak our shopping list every week. Aldi remains on top with Tesco and number two for value.

As our table shows, overall, the most affordable place to buy our typical weekly shopping basket was Aldi for the fourth week in succession. Aldi has superstores at Gorgie, Chesser, Oxgangs, Gilmerton, Cameron Toll, Portobello, Leith and Musselburgh.

All in, our price comparison basket from Aldi came in at just £18.36 this week.

Prices are correct as of 22 April. Lidl and Asda were unable to participate in our price comparison excercise.
