I frequently hear claims

I frequently hear claims that Costco, Winco, and even Target have lower prices than Walmart. About once a year I make a copy of a Walmart receipt containing 40 or so typical items (paper towels, orange juice, creamer, lotion, shaving cream, etc) I make an expanded copy, drop in columns for the other stores, go to those stores, jot down their prices and sizes (ounces, ml, etc), go home, compute per unit prices, and compare. EVERY TIME, including this time with Target, I find that the claims were bogus. In the interest of maintaining some respect for WWAY, I would appreciate it if the author would provide some kind of hard evidence for his claim, which would include a representative sampling of merchandise and a comparison of prices on a per unit basis.
