Whole Foods has started cutting prices to better compete with traditional supermarkets.

The grocery chain hasn’t provided many details on the price cuts, so the product review site Cheapism.com checked a Long Island, New York store for the best deals.

Cheapism compared the prices of hundreds of items at the store to prices for similar items at a nearby Shoprite. Some of the biggest differences in price were noted in almond butter, thin crust pizzas and potted flowers.

Note: Cheapism’s findings were for Long Island only. Prices may vary elsewhere.
