We can see that 33 products of Houra’s assortment that are in common with Monoprix has a higher index value at 106 (in green) meaning that they are priced higher compared to the other Click & Collect points. It is also interesting to see the other 2  Parisian locations top out each at an index value of 92 & 100 whereas the others are progressively lower. Price-Veille allows you to have an overview and how chains and manufacturers  compete within the “Food and Beverage industry”. This can be viewed on the screen capture below:
