Cost of living comparison for Chennai

I ran to the close and convenient store to pick some things up tonight.  Many of their items are imported though there are plenty of local items.  We like that it is close, never too busy, they let us charge all month and then just pay after payday, and most of the staff say hello to us.  They even do free home delivery.  We know that shopping there is probably resulting in slightly higher grocery bills than if we were a bit more frugal.  I wondered how their prices compared to similar items in the US and was able to price check against the Wegmans in Fairport, NY.

Note that the Wegmans prices do not include any applicable taxes, while the 5 Stars does.  I did not expect so many things to be less expensive than they would be while not on sale in a big American grocery store.
