Unit Pricing
One easy way to comparison shop is to use unit pricing. Many, but not all, grocery stores use unit pricing. The unit price is an item’s price per ounce, gram, pound, liter, quart, gallon or other unit of measure. Unit price tags are generally found on the shelf above or below the item.

Unit Price Tags
The unit price tag lists several pieces of information. The tag includes the type of product, brand name, product code number, package size, total price and price per unit. View the Unit Price Tag image below  to see these parts.
