Letter to the editor: Super shock about grocery store prices


Early in the month I went to IGA and bought some nice pears for $1.77 a pound.

Last Friday, I went back to get some more. The same exact pears were marked up to $2.90 a pound!

After paying for my bag of pears and paying the awful tax, my pears would cost me well over $3 a pound!

I had seen some information on TV about increases in grocery prices, but I had not experienced it until last Friday.

I don't know when I will be able to buy any more pears.
