Nearly every item I've attempted to purchase has been expired. I know "Hometown" stores don't generate huge profits, but I guarantee they'd make a lot more if they didn't sell green meat! I have pictures to prove it. They were marketing a nice juicy pack of t-bone steaks for $.50 off, and the whole corner was dark green, and saturated with mold. Very disgusting. I'm so unimpressed! I do own a vehicle, but my husband works in charleston quite often, so the only time I plan on shopping at foodland is when I have no car at home, and I'm almost starved to death; which is NEVER.

I use to work at foodland, and they are REALLY bad about having out of date food, and it doesnt matter if its weeks old or YEARS old they will mark it down and try to sale it.... they dont care about their customers or employees, all they care about is making money. I was really hopeing that WalMart would close them down, they need to get with the program....

I worked at the one in chelyan, but the one in kanawha city, and chesapeake are also owned by the same man, so all three stores are crappy....be careful if you shop there and ALWAYS check the dates before you check out...

Ewwww...you can smell the meat department in that place as soon as you go through the doors. It was the same way when it was Save-A-Lot.

I'm all about saving some money, but not about risking my health to do it. Go to the Save-A-Lot in Glasgow, it's a little farther, but it doesn't reek of rotten meat either.

I just read all these mean comments. I have shopped at Chesapeake Foodland since it opened. The employees there have always been very friendly. The store has great prices and is extermly clean in my opinion. They give me a much bigger discount on gas than Kroger does just for buying the grocies I was buying anyway. The meat department is fresh and clean. Sure they have some reduced products just like every other store does. But guess what, just don't buy the reduced items. Me and my family love Foodland.

Went to get lunchables there that were on sale in the weekly ad and EVERY SINGLE ONE on the shelf was expired by a couple of months. If there was a trashcan around I would have thrown them away. I told the woman working in the office and she said she'd get them off the shelf but who knows if she really did. Went on to Wal-Mart where I got the lunchables price matched. If you ever get anything there check the dates!!

As far as the meat goes, they recently got a new meat guy and the meat looks really good now. He seems on the ball more then the other guy. I was in there a few days ago and told him that once people got word there was a new meat guy they would flock back.
