Why Canadian shoppers choose specific stores

As of August 2019, the number one reason Canadians would go to a specific store for grocery shopping was so they could benefit from the lowest possible everyday prices. Other high-ranking reasons for choosing a specific store among shoppers included proximity to one’s home and being able to get everything one needs at the store.

The future of food costs in Canada

Almost a third of consumers in Canada found it somewhat difficult to feed their household on their food budget in 2019. Only about a fifth of consumers found it very easy. One year prior, many Canadians were also concerned that matters would get worse: in 2018, roughly seven out of ten Canadian consumers believed food costs would get worse in the future.
