prices of grocery items

Just wondering if someone would post some of the current prices

such as a dozen eggs, quart or litre of milk, loaf of bread, etc...

Looking to spend the winter in Barbados if we can find an affordable place to rent and other prices are within our range...

Thanks for any information you may have...

Here is a link to the Super Centre website. That should give you an idea of costs. All prices are in BDS $

Useful link, thank you.

However it isn't particularly clear from the website what exactly you get for the money - for example it says chieckn breasts are $24 but doesnt say whether this is for one, or a a hundred and one, etc.. And for milk it says $4, without saying how big a bottle/carton that is.

Would anyone care to say whether they found prices were similar to/higher than/lower than the UK or the US?

Many thanks

Hi we found supermarket shopping to be more expensive than the UK. My husband works in Norway which is really expensive so it didn't hurt too much!!

Milk will be about $5 for a litre, bread about $4 a loaf. Most things are imported so will be higher thn UK/USA etc

If you want to get really precise and detailed information about the Supercentre prices ...then why not Email them ...they have always replied promptly and efficiently to my queries

If you chose items that are not by weight then you can still get a fair idea

Most of the fruit and veg prices are per kilo and so are the non packaged meat
