The new owners are jacking up prices even higher than they already were, still are selling out of date food items and have stopped accepting bill payments.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.
