It used to be my favourite grocery store...

November 25th, 2006 at 10:13 pm

.. before the renovation!

They renovated. They took out most of the produce area and replaced it with a deli counter that sells lots of hot foods.

The veggies are now scarce. And the ones that are there are very expensive and most of them are shrink wrapped (why on earth does broccoli and cauliflower need to be shrinked wrapped anyways?)

I went to this place tonight - probably for the last time. Good deals on meat, but what point is a store where you can't find reasonably priced produce? That and a lot of the prices seemed to have gone up. Amazing how the cost of a renovation gets passed along.

The worst part of this? I'm not done with my grocery shopping. I have to go out again tomrrow for groceries.

    Very similar experience locally. My neighborhood grocery closed in October. We have a new super-sized replacement, very up-market. Boutique produce section, huge deli, fresh meats available by appointment, budget brands disappear from the shelves, and the place is so large I need a map.

    I want my grocery store back! Frown

    that sucks.. my mom always tells us that a certain grocery store sucks when we shop there every week and find good deals... i just realized that the store in her neighborhood was recently renovated and ours isn't...and it does seem their prices are higher.. she used to shop there but now she mostly sticks to Costco...
