The new owners are jacking up prices even higher than they already were, still are selling out of date food items and have stopped accepting bill payments. De Leon now has no place to pay your bills if you are low income and have to wait until the last day to pay your bill. Shoppin Baskit is just another local business that isn't serving the needs of the community.

Agree with the bill payments, as far as prices they seem better than they were, and might I add the meat actually looks like meat. Have shopped there more in the last two weeks than I have in the last 10 years.

They kept the same lazy employees. Has anyone ever seen Cecil Grumbles do any work? Yes, occasionally he'll check someone out, but the majority of the time I see him, he's standing around BSing with the other younger employees. The only people I've ever seen do real work is the deli woman and the ones in the office. Sorry, I'm just not impressed with the new owners.

They don't even have some of the items in their weekly sales circular. They have signs on their frozen food cooler advertising specials of products that they don't even sell.

The owner is a stand up guy that takes care of business. He don't take short cuts and treats everyone (customers, employees, & contractors) with the best of manners. You can't slam the new owner, he is probably one of the best people you will ever meet.

They need to get a new produce person. They are continuously out of stock on potatoes, bell peppers and jalapenos. The other day, I needed bell peppers and all they had was 3 and they were wrinkled and rotted. And they were supposed to be on sale 3/$1.

They continue to be out of stock of many items, especially sale items and many of the employees stand around BSing with each other, even yelling back and forth with each other while checking you out. They end up charging you double on some items and you don't catch it till later and have to go back to straighten it out. Prices are skyrocketing.

I walked in numerous times and the guys never said anything to me. I walk in with my fiance and the nerd with black hair has been glancing and if i dont let him know he stairs. Then the other night the bald ugly kid stairs at my girl. I put the groceries back in the car and went to beat his ass and show these horny ugly nerds that there on my todo list. I told my girl im done and bolted to the door when i noticed a man having trouble gettting in his car. I asked him if hes okay and helped him in safely. Im sorry you heard my foul language if you read these sir. Im just done with people taking my dreams away. Next time well get it on when i check out so be ready

I have been to two of the three stores and I have to say they are the best local grocer I have ever been in. The employees are very friendly and go out of their way to help. I requested an item that the Ranger didn't stock but the Coleman did. The meat Mgr. said he would order the item in special if I gave him advance warning so he could have it waiting on me.
I commented one day how well the can goods are lined up in the shelves the store is very neat and clean.
