All experiences across the USA will be different according to areas you live.
But I can tell you here in the bluegrass state of Ky a true shopper and person who knows the prices can tell you Walmart is cheaper and on the sales they will match it. But many times the grocery, Meijer, & Target ads are more than walmart's every day prices. I'm not just talking about groceries. The whole thing.
I use to go to each store to buy their sales, took me all week long. Now I can buy it all at walmart. Isometimes go to Kroger and/or Meijer (much like walmart but higher prices) and buy their sale items that I have coupons because they double their coupons and only on those items are they then cheaper than walmart.
We must be lucky on the clean issue. Our walmarts (the big super centers) are sparkling clean and smell like they have just been freshly cleaned no matter when you walk in the store day or time. Aisles are big & roomy. Don't see dirt, don't see boxes, really no aisle displays to get in your & your cart's way. Target is clean. Meijer is clean. Kroger is clean. Other grocery stores are clean.
Meijer,Target,Kroger, other groc stores average to be at the bare minimum(rare) 50 cents more up to well over $1-1.50 more per item.
I prefer to only give 1.50 for my Deans milk, not over $3.
