Help Design the Next Grocery Index

London Hackney

Good commercial corridor infill: grocery store in mixed-use building

Dear loyal readers,

Last year, I worked on a grocery index that included local Minneapolis-St. Paul grocery stores and common staples. For the next index, it’s time to ask for your input on what stores and what staples you value.

Since the last grocery index, I have learned that Instacart has a mark-up on groceries purchased in their online store, in addition to the delivery fee. With that in mind, I will be doing price research in-store to create a more accurate index of the current environment.

The survey is anonymous, and your data will go to a good cause of making our index better reflect the priorities of our loyal readers.

Please take the survey here:

Thank you for all your help and have a wonderful day!

All my best,
