Mother’s Day is this weekend on Sunday, May 8 (as if you didn’t know, right?) and we stopped and smelled the roses for you…at least, when it comes to price comparison shopping on a dozen roses. (We only priced a basic dozen roses — nothing fancy. Many of the stores had a wide variety of bouquets, but with a significant increase in cost.) 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 $12.99; 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!
