Inside Ingles: Supermarket Vocabulary 

UNIT PRICE - Do you shop based on the UNIT PRICE? That's the price per unit (often per ounce) that is listed on the tag on the shelf. When shopping for items where there are a number of brands or sizes it is always a good idea to check the unit price to find which item will be the best buy.

PLANOGRAM - Shelves in retail stores like supermarkets  have a PLANOGRAM (plan-ogram or plano-gram) that is a visual representation of how products are supposed to be displayed on the shelves.
