For the second month in a row, the VI Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs has tagged Pine Peace Market as the cheapest grocery store on island.
The DCLA’s latest food basket of 32 items cost $83.12 at the store, located at the bottom of Jacob’s Ladder. The Virgin Islands Daily News said the government agency report found Dolphin Market in Cruz Bay was the most expensive, at $86.53, while Starfish Market’s tab was $86.24.
Dolphin being the high-price operator continues to be worrisome. With the Roundabout construction, it's very difficult for people to park anywhere near the store. Which has to mean lower sales volume, which clearly has meant higher prices. How long can this go on?
