BEST BUYS: Each Wednesday The Augusta Chronicle offers a comparison of sale items promoted in the grocery advertisements inserted in this week's newspaper. We select one item from each store's advertisement and compare its sale price to the cost at other stores. Bi-Lo, Kroger and Food Lion sales apply only to customers who have the store's discount card.

NOTE: When items are grouped (for example, two for $5), the customer can buy one at the sale price ($2.50 each). That also applies at most stores to buy-one, get-one-free offers. For example, if two bags of chips are $4, the customer can buy one bag for $2. The exceptions are meat at Kroger and all items at Winn-Dixie, where shoppers must purchase both items to get the buy-one, get-one-free discount.
