    foodstuff with less price is to save more money

    When you have foodstuff with less price and at the same time you save more money, how do we say that in English? In other words, imagine you have a grocery and you want to write that on this board:

    Cheap food - saving you money!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Our low prices save you money.

    If you want customers, I would use "discount groceries" rather than "cheap food'.

    Yes it is; a very common one.

    I think all the responses so far assume that all your groceries are cheaper, always. When only some items are cheaper, for a limited time period, they are said to be "on special", or "on sale". For examples, "Today's specials - fresh fruit, soap, garden supplies."

    PS: Is it possible to buy groceries at a lower price without saving money?
