GREENSBORO, N.C. — The race for Thanksgiving shopping is officially on and this year, you've got some new options to buy those groceries in Greensboro.
We came across a photo on Facebook of a display at the new Greensboro Lidl that claims they are almost $40 cheaper than at the new Publix nearby.
Mind you, they're just a 4 minute drive away, according to Maps.
We wanted to VERIFY Lidl's claim to help you save!
When added all up, we can verify that YES, you can save more on your grocery haul at Lidl, but that's if you're willing to sacrifice buying your favorite brands.
Here's a breakdown of Lidl's display carts:
