A new study compiled by Which? has revealed the best choice of supermarket for a more economic weekly shop.
The consumer comparison website looked at the prices in Tesco, Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Lidl, Asda, Waitrose, Morrisons and Ocado as part of their research – comparing trolleys of 78 items (a mix of food and household essentials).
The study, conducted in June 2020, revealed that Lidl is currently the cheapest supermarket in Britain right now.
A trolley at this supermarket totalled just £72.02.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, rival discount store Aldi came a close runner-up.
A trolley-full at the German-born budget supermarket set buyers back £72.23.
Asda and Tesco clocked in at third and fourth – with shops costing £80.15 and £88.28 respectively.
Morrisons (£90.27) and Sainsbury’s (£93.93) sat at the higher end of the price spectrum, but there were two clear ‘leaders’ in terms of cost.
A shop at Ocado cost £109.61, whereas Waitrose turned out to be the most expensive of all at £111.77; almost £40 more expensive than Lidl.
