Well it was such a crazy visit I never got to visit the supermarket,,,but then of course with 2 kids and a husband complaining about it I am glad I didn't even try. So here is my list of questions..this will give me an idea as to cost and other thoughts.

Do you pay tax on all your groceries? Like meat, chicken and dairy?

What is the tax % in NC at the stores?

Here is one is someone wants to/can answer

How much is a gallon of Tropicana OJ?

How much is a dozen eggs?

How much is a gallon of bottled water (poland springs if possible)

How much does a pound of chicken breast(boneless) go for on the average.

Thanks to anyone who can answer this.

Talia

Sales tax is 7.5%. Yes, we pay tax on all of our groceries. You can go on the Harris Teeter (our largest grocery chain to check any prices you might want to compare.

Retail sales of tangible personal property not subject to a reduced rate of tax are subject to the current 4.25% general State sales tax. The state sales tax rate will be reduced to 4% effective July 1, 2007.

Items subject to the general rate are also subject to the 2.5% local rate of tax that is levied by all counties in North Carolina. Mecklenburg County has an additional ½% local tax for public transportation.

A 2% local rate of sales or use tax applies to retail sales and purchases of qualifying food; the ½% Mecklenburg County sales and use tax for public transportation does not apply. Purchases of non-qualifying food are subject to the general rate of State tax and the applicable local tax.

The price of groceries has been the one and only disappointment since coming to Charlotte. Everything is just about double from out west.....produce sometimes triple. I just close my eyes and swipe my card at the grocery store.

I often find milk cheaper at our shop and rob stores than grocery store I just bought a gallon a hour ago 3.79 but at the shop and rob it 2.99

a gallon. (at certain H.T. stores you can get milk in glass returnable bottles) There is alot of farmer markets in the area and Harris Teeter is my favorite chain due to it great selection, clean stores, friendly staff and they dont give me a ugly look because I insist on paper bags.

Thats the price here for a gallon here in VA, but we have Wal Mart for grocery shopping, Food Lion, Farm Fresh in my local area, but further out there are Harris Teeter, Kroger, I don't know what else... LOL cuz i don't go out there for groceries. I find the cheapest prices in Wal Mart, but come out w chest pains!

Check the pharmacys for milk you can usually always get a gallon of milk for $3

Produce from Super-Walmart or farmers markets.

Grocerys from Super-walmart.

Meat from fresh-market, just the two off us.

If was feeding a family I would buy the meat from BJ's

Good info! Thanks for starting the post! I find groceries and such were the little things we hadn't considered and in some cases they may not be so little.
