The cheapest hypermarket in Spain is the Alcampo store in Vigo (Galicia). In Madrid, the 4 cheapest hypermarkets of the town are all Alcampo’s, allowing its customers to save an average of nearly €4,000 on the year. For the 8th year in a row, Auchan Retail has been recognized as the cheapest retailer in the country by the OCU, the national consumer organization.
Alcampo is 5.7% cheaper that the average. Mercadona, which is 2.2% cheaper than the average came second in the list. The remaining supermarkets are all more expensive than the average: Condis – +1.2%, Carrefour – +1.9%, El Corte Inglés – +2.3%. Eroski is the most expensive at 3.8% above the average.
The OCU visited nearly 1,200 stores across the country and analyzed the prices of more than 230 food and drugstore products, including private label and own-brand products. This study rewards all Alcampo teams that have been working hard, for many years, to improve the purchasing power and the quality of life of their customers by offering the best products at the lowest price. All this information comes from the study published by the OCU in October 2016.
