Default Cheapest grocery store

What's the cheapest one for basic stuff (fruits, veggies, pasta, etc.) in Las Vegas?

Vons
Albertson's
Smith's

Am I missing any other major ones?

Obviously Costco is cheap if you have a membership ... and I guess Super Wal-Mart can be thrown in that mix too.

Food 4 Less is probably the cheapest. They are owned by Smith's, so they carry much of the same stuff.

For produce and meat, either Sunflower or the Latin markets (King Ranch, Mariana's, Los Compadres) can't be beat.

Smith's has been very good to me, but I would pay attention to the weekly circulars for deals. Von's has consistently had the best meat and deals on meat. Smith's seems to have better deals on the name brand stuff and even better deals on Kroger brand items.

99 Ranch also has good deals, you just have to know what you're looking at/for.

The store I buy most of my fruits, veggies and pasta at is Fresh and Easy. Plus they are always throwing those $5 off coupons at me.
Fresh and easy also has a big long aisle full of meat. I have no idea if it's a good price because i never buy it. I'm more a tofu type, at 89cents a container.

For the other stores like Vons, Albertsons, Smiths, get their store card. They send you special deals via email to add to your card, or through the mail. Smiths will give you cash back, money off of gas and freebie coupons once in awhile.
Vons will give you $10 off $50 deals..plus discounts with your store card that others don't get. More personalized.
Albertsons does the $5 off of $40 deals. The only thing i don't like about that store is when they give the coupon deals off, the stuff i buy is never a good price. So i tend to go where I will save the most.

Walmart neighborhood stores are quite inexpensive. Better prices than the super walmarts for some reason. Although their produce can be more expensive for many items.

Sunflower market is a great store! Great prices on produce and organic stuff too. Too bad both stores are so far away from me. Go to their website and sign up for weekly store specials, and you can also print out coupons from their site to use in the store.

Costco has some good prices on produce, but most of it is in bulk of course. However, i can buy a great big Honeydew melon for $3..also have gotten Watermelons there for around $5 or less.
A great big box of Pluots for $8. The best tasting. (get the firm ones, not the soft ones.)

Wallmart is the cheapest but their produce and meats are horrible.

I like Vons, Smiths and Trader Joes. Costco is also good. I used to be a member.

A pluot is a cross between a plum and an apricot. They are so darn good! Very sweet and juicy. Light brownish on the outside, deep red on the inside. They are really expensive in regular grocery stores, so I always wait for Costco to offer them, so i get a better price, and big juicy ones too.
