How would you describe the availability and cost of groceries and household supplies relative to your home country?

You can get anything here, pretty much. Beef is not the greatest at the grocery store, but there is a specialty shop if you are craving steak. - Jul 24, 2017
We can get just about anything we could possibly need here. The cost of food is generally cheaper than in the U.S., with the exception of some specialty items. We are vegan and have had no problems finding groceries and products to fit our lifestyle. - Sep 21, 2016
Things were pretty expensive but the dollar is finally making a comeback. You can get most things, but there will be odd shortages at the grocery. Produce selection can be grim in winter. - Jul 11, 2010
You can get almost anything here.there are plenty of grocery stores, prices are higher than an average US supermarket. - Aug 23, 2008
