they do sell beer and wine now.
yeah, and the place looks pretty nice actually. they're still working on the parking lot though. also, the entrance is strange right now. the main entrance will be built after they tear the old building down.

krogers is better
food fair/twoer still sells the lowest grade produce at the premium prices....
so you know they do the same with their meats.
how many times have you pruchase ice cream novelites there and found when opening hte box at home th eitems had been very old and melted and refrozen several timtes, too.
i would rather spend the money at a fast rurn over store like kroger..you get better produce, meat and everythign else.
not a supproter of wal mart either

I think Foodfair has the best meats around here. Kroger is over priced on their meats and wal mart just sucks. I support local businesses like Foodfair. At least you know your money is staying here and not somewhere else around the world or country.
yeah tower!

Tower by far has the best meat around. So much better than kroger or walmart!

Well it's good to hear they sell beer now. I'm a long time kroger customer and a lot of times I'd think about going to tower but the thought of having to stop again to buy beer made me just decide to go on to kroger. As for meat, I'm not a fan of kroger meat they cut there but they have some stuff I like that comes in a package. I also didn't know tower sold low grade produce. I eat a lot of salads so I'll have to consider that also.

Tower has always had the best meat and the best prices. It has been my families store of choice since before I was born. The new store is great. I was a little worried that it would be way to big, like Kroger or Wal-Mart. It's not though. It still has that comfy store feeling.

Do you have the facts on this or is this just your opinion?

I am officially done with Tower. My family has been loyal customers through the years, but they raised prices way too much with this new store and I no longer see it feasible to shop there. As much as it pains me, I will shop at walmart from now on.

Yes I agree
They use lowest end produce, meats etc and charge premium prices.
I say they have fact.
I agree.
I am done shopping with them now.
My idea is not to pay for their improved real estate.
Krogers can have all my grocery money.
If you shop Krogers well you can get great buys and save a great deal of money throughout the year.
Plus they are clean friednly and serviceable!
(except the morons that work the pharmacy)
I cannot tell you how many times I have purchase frozen foods at tower had them bad when they were opened.

Tower has overpriced low end products to make millions for decades. Just cause they have a new building does not make them change their ways.
Like supporting the same politicians over and over again. You support them when they are taking from you, you deserve it. I shop elsewhere...cheat me once it is your fault. Cheat me twice it is my fault! Never again!

Go to Krogers and other place. I like the small local stores when they have what you need.

Tower: no more paying high end for the low end produce and other items!

Lower prices rather then building new budiling and improving your real estate and bank account. Shows you are for yourself not the people. Hard workers should not have to overpay for poor product.

I think it's great. I would rather pay higher prices than deal with the inconsiderate crowds at kroger and Walmart. I had excellent service there today and the bag guy even unloaded my stuff out of the cart onto the belt. You guys keep going to the cheap places and I will support local businesses. Every time I have been in there the staff was very friendly. I love it and I don't agree with the comments about them selling low quality produce and meats. I don't know about you guys but I don't like walking three miles of store to find my groceries either kroger and Walmart are way to big. My Only complaint is that I can't get some thing there and ultimately need to go to kroger anyways but when I mentioned that they asked what they were and offers to try to get them so.......again the customer service is great.

I definitely like Foodfair WAY better, their meat selection is great, not over priced like Kroger.

Customer service for the most part is great with the exception of Holly, I have been in there and the cell phone texting is more important than taking care of a customer unless your a "man". She's way to flirty and unprofessional, especially to the produce and meat department management.(somethings and actions are just wrong)I have spoken about this to the manager on more than one occasion but nothing...I just expected more after they opened the "new" Tower with Bill there. A tiger doesn't change is strips.
