Of the 55 products compared, Bónus had the lowest price in 34 instances, although the price difference was often small between Bónus and Krónan. Of the 48 products available in both stores, there was only an ISK 1 difference in 20 instances, ruv.is reports.

On the other end of the scale, Kostur had the highest prices in 27 cases of the 55 products compared.

In the case of some products, candy, prune jam, rice, shampoo and coconut oil, there is up to 100 percent price difference between stores. The difference is lowest in dairy products.

The survey was conducted simultaneously at Bónus in Holtagardar, Reykjavík, Krónan at Grandi, Reykjavík, Nettó in Akureyri and Kostur in Kópavogur.
