I live in Illinois and can tell you where to avoid.

AVOID DOMINICKS AT ALL COSTS! Do not even bother with this place. And if you can, avoid going to Jewel Osco as well. Both stores have unneccesarily jacked up prices.

Meijers is decent for food prices, but Walmart is much cheaper and they are popping up all over the area so if you can, go to Walmart. If you are really poor and looking for a bang for your buck, find a store called Aldy's. It is super cheap with a lot of generic food brands that taste as good as the better food brands.

But again, avoid Dominicks and Jewel as well.

ALDI is the store Jak is referring to, and it's European, so you may be familiar with it.

Local markets are all over Chicago, and there you can find very cheap produce (Fruits and veggies from 39 cents to 99 cents a pound, chicken legs for 59 cents a pound, chicken breast for 1.29 a pound, etc). I don't know about prices in the suburbs.
