Who Has The “Cheapest” Mother’s Day Roses?

Mother’s Day is this weekend on Sunday, May 10 (as if you didn’t know, right?) and we’ve done some of the work for you…at least, when it comes to price comparison shopping for a dozen roses. Here’s what we dug up: Costco (membership required) – $16.99 for two dozen; Target for $14.99; Walgreens for $14.99; Safeway for $9.99; King Soopers for $10 (or $18.88 for two dozen); Wal-Mart for $9.87; Whole Foods for $14.99; Albertsons for $9.99; and the winner is…Sprouts Farmers Market for $8.99. Prices may vary by location. For the best selection, don’t wait until the last-minute and shop early. (For the record, we thought the best roses for the price were at Costco. If you don’t have a membership, find a friend or family member who does — it’s worth it!) Be sure to keep them stored as recommended, so that you don’t hand over wilting flowers. We hope your Mother’s Day is rosy!
