This article deals with the competitive advantage of Price Chopper over other supermarkets in the U.S. in 2005. The program known as Price Chopper's Triple Inspected Guarantee, gives buyers, inspectors and store clerks permission to reject any produce or meat items they think do not make the grade. This public stance is touted in the form of a guarantee to consumers that they will always get the best in fresh from the Price Chopper banner.
