Apples, for example, cost $1.35 per pound at the Folsom store, but $1.47 at the other two. Nothing was cheapest at the store in South Sacramento. What’s interesting about this difference to someone not familiar with Sacramento is that prices are higher in the relatively poorer neighborhoods, and just a bit lower in the affluent suburb of Folsom. Is it more expensive to run a big-box store in a poor neighborhood, or is there just more competition in a wealthier neighborhood?
