Let's say you have just bought a snack at £8 at store B(let's say).Then you were a bit surprised coz'...

the same snack costs £10 from the nearest store from/of/near your house.

Which is the correct preposition?

Actually:

The same snack costs £10 from the nearest store to your house.

But more naturally:

The same snack costs £10 from the store nearest to your house.

Distance measurements generally use from/to.

And while you could write:

The same snack costs £10 from the nearest store near your house.

this sounds awkward, and using words like near/far usually need a fixed reference, and "nearest store near your house" has too many variables as to location.
