I buy meat at safeway or quality foods, I don't shop at super store, but for no particular reason, I
have no complaints about them
I just find that when you find a particular store that satisfies you, you feel comfortable, like their
products, thats where I will be.
I collect air miles so safeway does that, and I collect quality foods points, and like their new store
in courtenay, everything so fresh looking and the store so new and clean, and lunch there is very good,
freshly made foods on the spot, good quality.
save on foods left here some years ago, so I have forgotton about them, but I did shop there back then.
I am a stickler about checking dates
don't like thriftys here in courteany, the store is too small, people too close together, feels cramped.
maybe when they finish building the new one up the hill by home depot, I will go there sometimes, they
have a good reputation.
I shop in costco, but won't buy meat there, the last stewing beef I bought there wouldn't become tender
if you cooked it for a week. I have used stewing beef as part of my spaghetti sauce for about 50
years, and this was the first time the stewing beef was chewy after cooking the sauce for 5 hours.
I'm going to speak to them about it next time I go.
I don't need their meat anyway, but there are many other products I like a lot, their produce cold room
is great, but I check all the dates.
does anyone know what happens to all foods that is removed because date is coming close to expiry.
I went to costco last week, wanted their great tasting, cut up and packaged squash, we love it, but
the expiry date was close, so I left it alone, went back two days later, whole shipment of fresh
squash was there, what happens to the old stuff, which was still OK to eat for a while.
