(STUDYFINDS) — You get what you pay for when grocery shopping — or so we’re led to believe. So buying your favorite fruits and vegetables at a discount store means you must be getting lower quality goods, right? Wrong. New research reveals that produce sold at dollar stores are actually quite comparable to that sold at traditional grocery chains, only markedly cheaper.
This finding has implications beyond the cost of your next meal — for many, it’s a means of accessing vital fruits and veggies.
