I live at Grangetown which is only a couple of blocks away from this health food store. It is known by people in the neighborhood to have a great selection with very steep prices. I went there once for protein powder and did not buy anything due to price.
Well, today I had a major emergency, I ran out of Guar Gum. I use it to make my shakes and thought I had a bag left but I was wrong and I was completely out. I used to buy it at Loblaws for 4.99 a bag but out of convenience, I buy it at Bulk Barn for 5.39 a bag.
Didn't feel like hopping in the car and since this was such a small ticket item, I went to Baldwin. I truly was prepared to pay a dollar more and even two dollars more but guess what? No, you are wrong! Guess again .... still wrong.
The price was a gauging $8.99 cents for the same size bag!!!!
They are absolutely ridiculous. If you have money to burn, or think the local health food store is chic or something ... then by all means, go and patronize.
If you are an intelligent, price aware shopper, stay completely away from this store.
