A recent Eagle article reported how cantaloupe melons had returned to the Denver King Soopers market having been off the market for a year as the result of a food-borne illness. What interested me was the price of 69 cents. The day before the article I had bought a cantaloup at the North Adams Stop and Shop for $2.99 after receiving a $1 discount by using my savings card. That’s a difference of $2.30 or 333 percent.
