I would say it should be written "competitor's price" or "competitors' prices". The singular "price" would mean a singular competitor.
I find it easier to get my head around this kind of thing if I substitute with words that actually change their structure to become plural rather than just adding an s...
For example, "We will clean any woman's house", "We will clean any women's houses".
P.S. I say anyhoo too

I just googled it and there's not even an exciting reason for it. Anyhoo, time to move on...
I'm pretty sure "anyhoo" originated in accents from certain parts of North America. Think Fargo...
It's also close to a Scottish accent. I had a friend whose Scottish mother used to amuse me no end by referring to "cows" as "coos". Needless to say I found plenty of opportunities to turn our conversations in a more bovine direction.

I have to say I'm guilty of saying anyhoo as corny as it is. It's just a colloquialism. An alternative pronunciation to anyhow, with the same meaning as anyway.

I've noticed a lot of my FB friends lately say 'use to' or 'suppose to'. Also, 45$ instead of $45. WTF?!
