Groceries and supplies are equal to the cost in the States...but those of us being paid in dollars will have to take in consideration the exchange rate. Be aware that when you are at the grocery store you have to buy your own bags, as well as bag your own groceries. Many times, the person checking out will begin checking the next person out while you are still bagging your own groceries. This can be very stressful the first couple of times. Also, most grocery stores close about 7 or 8 and are closed on Sundays and all holidays. - Jan 2007
