We have several in the area of our country place, and what a collection of beat-down people are inside.
The employees look like life has played tricks on them, (I have empathy for them), and the customers look like slobs, maybe competing with other stores for the next People of Wal Mart collage?

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

I don't shop at walmart. I found a new food store with fantastic food savings...I'd say about 25-30% savings from all other food stores. And, lately, my mom has taken an interest in dollar stores just for the shear diversity of products and, so, I take her there. I find some products' quality OK at the dollar store.

We moved to another town, a tiny one and we have a privately owned food store just around the corner. We were admiring their impressive beer selection the other day when the owner comes up and starts giving his review on the different ales we were inspecting. He'd apparently tried them all except the newest ones so we got an assorted selection. That sort of customer service you won't find in any supermarket. beercheer.gif

the supermarket near me introduced communism.
you need peach ice tea? - sold out. at least for a week.
you need some ben & jerry's? - sold out.
you want to buy some pizza? - sold out.
you want to buy milk? sold out.
you want to buy red bull cola? sold out.
ğck them.

instead of buying more of what they sell most they always buy the same amount.

today i bought all the peach ice tea. it won't show up again until next wednesday or maybe even later. chuckle.gif i trolled all the other customers. :D


edit: and yeah i know that i should eat more healthy stuff but i don't care.

I have noticed the same thing in the biggest supermarkets. They can't seem to keep track of their biggest sellers as they're always out of some products. gaah.gif I don't know how many times I've complained about them not getting enough of the stuff I want. 13.gif

I think the big supermarkets allow the high demand products to remain 'out of stock' so people will buy the second choice products, so as to get them moving. It's all a selling ploy.

lol.gif but it's ğkking retarded because the next supermarket which is able to stock his stuff up is always less than a kilometer away. so they lose costumers. the only reason why i still go to that supermarket is because it lies directly on my way and it's just 5 mins away from where i live so it doesn't hurt me to check out if the stuff i need is on sale or not.

Not necessarily lose customers, not a lot of people have leisure time to shop and drive around looking for one item. I know my sister, who is hyperactive, will drive from no less than three stores (usually) up to five stores for separate items during a shopping run. I'm not like that, I go to one store and one store only to get everything because I have better things to do that spend a great deal of time shopping and driving around town. So, I will buy the second choice product and be done with it.

I don't do second choice products, not because I'm hyperactive, I'm just that awful. chuckle.gif And also ride the bike so it'll just be extra exercise.

Guess what, some second choice products are better than my first choice and then become my new first choice. Experimentation and adventure...take a chance. chuckle.gif

iagree.gif Same for us US. Many of the chain brands we've replaced with Lidl offerings.
Overall, better quality and far less expensive. Lidl's cottage cheese for example is a hundred times better and creamier than the grocery cartels at half the price.
Lidl has duck on sale this week, fekk, we can't even get duck at the other stores.
The other biggie is Lidl has forced the big chains to carry more variety.
When I first moved here, the big stores were all fish, potatoes and sweets. 13.gif
They were offering the same fare ass the Finns had bought since the 50's fer crap sake, they had to step up to the plate and lower prices, proving competition is win win for the consumer.

Well I suppose if you have only one other choice and it wasn't to your liking, then it would be time to make a complaint to the Manager.
