St. Cloud Grocery Prices: 2019 vs 2022
Anecdotally, grocery prices seem to have risen about 300% in the last couple of years post-pandemic. But how much have prices REALLY gone up?
I checked out a local grocer's advertisement from 2019 and compared the prices to the ad from this week. Considering that these are items in the circular, they may be sale prices and not exactly accurate as far as day-to-day price.
However, they should give us a general idea of just how much things have gone up since the 'before times.'
