Thread: Bethel Grocery ?

  1. #1

    Default Bethel Grocery ?

    Planning on doing some grocery shopping in Bethel before heading out on a float trip and curious about how much more stuff is going to cost. Can anyone give me an idea? For example, how much can I expect to pay for the 1lb propane canisters, steaks, eggs, chicken, potatoes?

    Thanks much in advance

    I was over in Bethel last Sept and picked up a few odds and ends before and after a hunt. I don't know what expensive is to you but I would label it extremely costly. Give you an idea 4 cheeseburgers, fries and 4 cans of pop came out to $60.00ish. I brought back a few flyer from the places just to show folks. I would count on a 20% increase as a min.

    I was there in December a case of water was like 30bucks if I remember and a propane torch I think was 60? With the yellow bottle. It's going to probablly be cheaper to fly with as much as you can.

    Great info and advice. I really appreciate it. We've got a good layover in Anchorage so it sounds like grabbing a taxi and heading to the grocery store there is a good idea.

    Thanks again!

    You can catch the city bus (people mover) right at the airport ($5 day pass) and be at the diamomd center Walmart in minutes. I rode all over town shopping before flying out last Monday and it was worked out great. At the end of the day I rode back downtown, picked up my bags and jumped back on a bus right to the Alaska Air terminal. Wished I had try the people mover before, most of the drivers were super helpful with telling me which routes to take to the different sporting goods stores.
