DENVER (CBS4) – A new survey suggests shopping for two children can cost anywhere from $200 to $700, depending on where a family shops.

Researchers from got a cart full of children’s clothes at seven different retailers and compared prices.

“We thought of a family with two kids — a girl and a boy ages 7 to 10 — and we filled the shopping cart with underwear, pajamas, jeans, tops and shoes,” Max Levitte with said.

The results were as follows with comparable clothing:

— Walmart – $218
— Target – $293
— K-Mart – $295
— Old Navy – $386
— Sears – $546

JC Penny’s was almost $600 and a similar basket at Kohl’s pushed $700 when shopping without coupons.

Another survey of the teen set suggests they found their favorite back-to-school clothes at Forever 21 and H&M.

H&M is coming to Denver this fall with a downtown location and to the Cherry Creek Mall the beginning of next year.
