Price Comparison 101

Shopping for groceries easily describes a love/hate relationship you might have in your life. You enjoy getting fresh food and stocking up your fridge, but can turn out to be quite the goose chase, as your regular grocer can be out of stock of a certain item or you simply don’t have a lot of time to go to the grocery store. You want to make sure you get the best items, at a great price and to be able to shop without stress.

At Penguin Fresh, we have made it easy to get very fresh products, at great prices. All you have to do is place your order online weekdays before 3 p.m. and you’ll be eligible to pick it up as early as 3 p.m. the next day! You won’t have to get out of your car as we offer a drive thru service via Penguin Pick-Up, and we serve everyone in less than 90 seconds. Not to mention, when you shop with Penguin Fresh, you will also receive fresher, and higher grade produce since we get the products straight from the whole sale suppliers that get it from the farmers in the early morning, every morning.

 

 

Let’s have a look at some of the items you might purchase on a weekly basis and how our prices compare to your local supermarket – the price comparison is based on a grocer who has competitive prices for some of the comparable products in terms of their quality.

As you can see Penguin Fresh ends up being $16.70 less than the local supermarkets that offer competitive prices for comparable products. At this point you will have also saved some time in your busy schedule.

As we get our products from the whole sale companies, who also supply high end restaurants, the products are very fresh and of the highest quality. They haven’t been through terminals, warehouses and stores before they reach your plate, they are sourced as close to the farmer as possible.

Furthermore, due to our set up we will never  run out of stock.  You will be receiving the products that you order online and will not need to worry about whether we have them in stock, or whether they are fresh and high quality! This, is all part of The Fresh Difference!
