It’s the opposite here! I use our Italian Deli for a great price break on cheese and coldcuts. For example, a lb of parm or romano at our grocery stores is 4.99 to 7.99 a lb, even on sale it might go to 3.99. Our Italian Deli has it all the time for $2.99 a lb. Our deli also does alot of sales where deli ham and turkey are buy a 1/2 lb, get one free, and the price is lower than the grocery store to begin with.
Always worth checking out all the Mom&Pop places; it appear to vary widely by region.
