Grocery shopping is one of those errands that many dread, but it has to be done. It can rarely be done quickly unless you need to grab only one or two items, but it often takes over an hour, is too crowded, and is dreaded before ever leaving the house. To add to it, with everything going up in price it has gotten far too expensive. A year or two ago you could likely do a week or two of groceries for around $200, whereas now that costs over $300 or more. The costs continue to rise, making it less enjoyable. Which grocery store you go to dictates how much the final bill will be, but there is one grocery store that is more expensive than others in Idaho, and the Gem State has one location left.

A report came out recently revealing the most expensive grocery stores in America, and one of them has a home in Idaho. That grocery store would be Whole Foods, and they have one location in the Gem State, which happens to be located at 401 Broadway Avenue in Boise. The store has always been a little higher in price, making it difficult for everyone to shop at. When Amazon bought the chain a few years back, they did lower the average costs of groceries, but they still ranked higher than others in the state. With the cost of living going up, and the cost of groceries going up, but salaries staying the same, it makes Whole Foods even tougher to shop at.

Grocery shopping continues to go up in price, and while there are no Whole Foods in the Magic Valley, it doesn't mean the other stores in the area aren't getting a little pricey as well. You may have your select stores you prefer, but if prices on groceries continue to rise, you might need to start shopping elsewhere.
