Pathmark may not be the newest, most modern but it's by far the cheapest. When King Kullen or Stop and Shop run a sale, the prices are like everyday prices at Pathmark. KK or Sand S may offer 2 things at a really great price to draw you in but the rest of the stuff is way more expensive than Pathmark.

Agree with CG. Prices are way lower at Pathmark, but I only buy the "boxed or frozed goods" there. Fresh Produce at Pathmark has never been good. they need help in that department.
