(FOX BUSINESS) – While Walmart is still seen as the price leader in the grocery industry, its rivals aren’t far behind. In a recent report, Telsey Group analyzed online grocery prices across seven retailers including Walmart, Target, Amazon Fresh, Kroger (King Soopers), Albertsons (Safeway), Sprouts and Whole Foods (via Amazon) in Denver. Analysts specifically looked into 40 key items across two categories, including “several premium items.”

In June 2023, Target and Kroger were at a 14% to 15% premium to Walmart. Today, that figure is sitting around 6% to 7%. However, what’s even more interesting, according to Feldman, is the price drop at Amazon Fresh.
