I hope the Huber people aren't complaining in a year because having a Valu King encouraged the trash to stay.

Okay-- first of all, I'm pretty sure the vacant store they are talking about is on the NORTHEAST corner of Brice and Livingston, and that the Meijer Store was SOUTH of I-70. Trust me, we live over there, in that area. It's going to be nice to see ANYTHING go into that building. My kids were just talking about the possiblity of finding someone to make it into a bowling alley!! LOL I think this will do a little bit better for the area businesses!

Giant Eagle's version of Aldi and Save-A-Lot. Just when you think the area can't get any trashier - TADA!

Giant Eagle and Kroger are closer. I can walk to either. That makes me "thrifty".

The Meijer near Main St. north of I-70 closed.

Giant Eagle has hamburger buns for $1.00 for a package of 8. I always buy these.

That makes one smart.

Get your produce (organic and) at Whole Foods or Clintonville Community Market, and the rest at Save A Lot. You can feed your family organic produce and balance your budget with the low prices at Save A Lot.

I hate getting ripped off by Kroger.

A more-affordable neighborhood grocery store might be a welcome addition for some people during tough economic times, you arrogant, boorish, twit.

Aldi has kind of a hipness to it; Sav-a-lot, however, is kind of bottom-of-the-barrel.

I do not understand how someone could hand out the "lemon" and "clueless" rankings for this post. Whoever Andy et all is -- is correct. The Dispatch reporter needs to resurvey the intersection!

Lots of bickering on here about something that should be good for the area. By the way I grew up near this area...and worked at the old Tom Tarpy's which was located across the street from this site. At one time in the '70s and early '80s this area was a great little micro economy. I could name many of the stores that "used to be" in those big vacant buildings and it's been sad to see B&L cast off into a boarded up junk heap. For those of you who have their noses in the air about deep discount grocers: they DO serve ALL clientele. Many of us "desirables" do shop at Giant Eagle and Kroger AND shop at the Marc's here in Westerville. We get our groceries at Marc's and GE for our meat and some specialty items. I bet you people wouldn't be bitching if this new store plopped a Get Go in the front of that lot and issued you "gas points". And GE does things first class. Even if this is a "generic version" of GE the folks who live in those neighborhoods at B&L will be far better served with this new store.
Oh come on

Yes, the old Meijer was south, not north.

Just a thought: Some African American shoppers from outside Reynoldsburg will visit this area and maybe buy some property around to stay, just to tease the ones who once have been scared of their church ;-)

I am looking forward to go shopping there again.

Don't give it any thought, which psychopath may give you a lemon when you write something that makes sense.

In another article (that said some murder was drinking heavenly before he murdered one or two people) I said, that alcohol and drug abuse should be prevented in order to prevent murders, and that people could murder for getting their drugs or being mentally unstable because of the use of drugs, but same time same people using drugs and being drinkers are highly for the death penalty, what I cannot understand.

Well, obviously they use drugs and are drinkers giving lemons ;-)

Why does it make you trashy?

ALDI is a German discounter grocery chain, founded by two brothers. They have low prices, because they have less workers, and use also the 25 cents for their shopping carts. Working conditions are horrible, despite the fact that they can sit at the cash register. I am more than sorry for any worker at ALDI's may they work here in the US ore in Germany. Nevertheless I go sometimes (not too often, maybe once a month or two) shopping there, spending about $100 in groceries.

'Save a lot' I never go to, because it is out of my way. Giant Eagle I also never go to, but will in this year, this was my New Year's decision that is based on convenience. I used to go to Walmart, but they are a ripp off nowadays with their prices nearly same high like Meijers and Krogers for the articles I buy, so I will forget about Walmart and focus again on Meijer. Walmart is abusing their financial power first smashing any other grocery shop with low prices, just to raise prices when there is no other one left. They are unfair. Krogers: I like shopping there, but they have here and there sometimes higher prices, I think it is because they privately employ police officers sometimes to take care for order. It also could be, that working conditions are better at Kroger's, and they spend more money for their workers?

Porn shop is on the other side of the bridge and the city dump is all around it.
