New Jewel In Elburn

We only use the new Jewel the same way we used
the old Anderson's grocery store. For emergencies
only. Although Anderson's prices were fair, they
did not have the room for extended variety. Jewel
on the other hand has terrible unfriendly prices.
It still pays three times over even with gas prices to shop at Meijer.
And you don't have to worry about getting killed
going grocery shopping because of an unsafe intersection.

The village position is that they have to wait to
a cetain amount of people have been killed before
they can perform one of their overpriced studies.

I feel the same way about Reams Meat Market. They
have gouged the residents in Elburn for years. They did so because the grocery store did not have
meat and you had to drive to Randall road to get some. Even though Jewel is no bargain, at least
their meat prices are still far more reasonable
than Ream ever were. I hope they put away all that
money they have been stealing from folks, because
their days are numbered.

Jewel prices are high and unfriendly. The store
is dark and not very inviting. Someone should
also teach the cashiers to say thank you instead
of " There you Go".

Both Jewel and Reams are thieves. Shop at Meijer.

I find Jewel to be very friendly, and I was a hard core Dominicks man for many years. Jewel prices are better now than they were. But the produce and milk are always very fresh, UNLIKE at miejer.
As far as Reams, you are aware there are grades to meat? Prime, Choice, then Select. Prime is best. Many Reams meats are prime, and will cost more than the Choice or lower at Jewel. Reams often has meat on sale for good prices, even better than Jewel. Reams has the BEST 80 percent, coarse ground beef for chili. Bacon is cheaper than and grocery, and much better. As far as brats, Reams Grand Champion brats are the same price or often better than Johnsonville at Sams club. Reams brats are the very best, people drive 100 miles to buy them, I see it all the time. You get what you pay for.

The cashier asked me if I had anything at the
bottom of my cart that I wished to pay for.
If I did I would have notified them or placed it
in my cart for purchase. I thought this was an
unfriendly gesture and the clerk said that Jewel
makes them ask this as a loss prevention measure.
If anybody is stealing it is Jewel itself for its
high prices and alleged markdowns.

If I am going to pay insane prices for meat,
I will go to Frsh Market instead of Reams. At least
I will be treated with respect and appreciation for my business. Reams sure does have the local
yokels on a string. It might be the diseased
water in Elburn thats got them loco.
