For an idea of Puerto Rico grocery store food costs, for advertised food specials featured in the weekly ads, click here to see some of the sale prices.

These 2 extremely useful links display the weekly advertised specials,
for many of the competing weekly food ads, also known as the “shopper.”  It’s easier to find the ads at these all-in-one shopper websites instead of going to the individual store websites.  The downside is that sometimes the ads are expired from the previous week. It’s an excellent idea, but would be better if the ads were always current. In such cases, you might want to go directly to the individual store’s website.  Shop.PR operates in a flipbook format, which is more user-friendly.  Shoppers De Puerto Rico operates in a PDF format.
