i work with one of the stores talked about in here.. it doesnt bother me so much that ppl have the cards, and feed their kids. it bothers me to no end to see them come in strung out on dope or some other drug. i think if they get them they should be made to take a random UA. it is sad. ppl move to this town that are on welfar because they get more for there children in this small town then a bigger city.. the gov'nt is going broke, ks is going broke but still giving money to druggies..

2] they shouldnt be able to buy junk food and energy drinks either.

3] it saddens me when i see an elderly couple that only have 80 bucks a month on there card that they live off of, while a couple in thier mid 30's with 6 kids driving a nice as s car that has 800 dollars on their card..

My thoughts: very well said.....
As far as the welfare a lot of those people do work, they just don't get paid enough to live here in Fort Scott or anywhere. I guess they could get 2 jobs and use one of the jobs to pay the sitter and the gas to travel out of town, not saying there isn't a lot of dead beats that use the system, but not everyone who has a vision card is in that category.

i live close to gene's but i very rarely shop there. i have seen brown hamburger and green looking pork chops there several times, so i refuse to buy meat from them. and as for the produce? the tomatoes are always wrinkly skinned and have bad spots on them. i've seen apples several times with bad spots and bruised and leaking. i'd rather go to woods or walmart to do my grocery shopping, even though it would be easier and closer to go to gene's. just worth it to me to drive a little further to get better quality food. and the prices at gene's are a lot higher on most stuff than the other stores also. about the only thing i like from gene's is the chicken from the deli. that is waaaay better than kfc!

To IGA shopper..... Wal Mart is not a grocery store they are not allowed to help customers out with their groceries. If you have a big heavy item then you will get help loading it into your car but as for groceries you are on your own.

I also have seen the meat green and brown
with dark blood coming out of the package. Woods has the best meat in town. You can save alot with their 5 for 25.00.

to begin with at wal mart in p-burg and in Nevada if you are elderly or need help ou with your groceries all you have to do is ask and to begin with I agree in this economy it is really hard to get by but if you sit down and think of ways to save money it can be done cut back on smoking or buy a cheaper brand use coupons I put mine in a photo album with see thru pages and save quite a bit its tidious work but a while back at wal mart my total was 57.43 before coupons and 41.26 after coupons so it does pay off we also use our bath towels twice unless they get really wet have started drinking kool aid half of the time instead of soda use powdered milk in cooking buy generic cereals change wattage of light bulbs buy cheaper trash bags cut out newspaper also if anyone has a home phone and get food stamps you qualify for a big discount my neighbors bill went from 70.00 to like 36.00 it's called a life line thru swb also got together with a few neighbor buy in bulk like tp paper etc split the cost and product very cheap especially if you have coupons

It is not opies pizza. They advertise it but that is only a name. The crust is not fresh or made at the store, it is pre-packaged and frozen to use when ordered. The sauce is bland, I do not think it is made in Wichita anymore by the company that used to supply it. In short, you have a frozen, very poor quality dried out crust, with no flavor pizza. A "large" is only called that, but is smaller than a medium anywhere else. I suggest you get a pizza from Papa Murphy's if you are in P-burg. If not, then you go buy one from woods or W-M.(By the way, I don't like W-M and what they have done to the local economy, but if they are the only one selling edible pizza, then so be it.)

Maybe you let it set in ur fridge that isnt set to the correct temp... I think you should freeze it because I dont have that problem. I am glad u like woods, they also need customers, good luck pushing around one of their broke down carts... And better luck MAKING them walk your groceries out!
smalltowngroceries, i see your side but when i buy hamburger from there i take it straight home to cook. 95% of the time it is always brown in the middle. just saying.

Walmart is supose to help any customer out with their order no matter what they buy. They have to request it and someone will be pulled from their work station to come help. All you have to do is ask for help.

I like IGA. People are always nice to me and no body should judge anyone for using a vision card cause you don't know if that person using the card is just a lazy person taking a free ride or if they are disabled or just down on their luck. Yes we all pay for it but their are tax payers that still get some help. The people who get cash help have to do work sites to keep geting help and sometimes when you add up the hours you do the work program and how much help you get its like geting paid less then minimum wage. IGA has always been happy to address any problems and the one time I did have an issue they replaced my meat for me. Woods is just as nice. I got bad meat from them before as well. I hate going to wal-mart lol they have over priced meat and I always run into someone I didn't want to see lol

The thing about W-M is that their meat is usually in bulk packaging. I guess if you really wanted to buy in bulk it would be the cheaper way to go. I love the 5 for $25 deal, but you don't get much meat per package, depending on what you get. I go to IGA because I feel like everyone is friendlier there. The cashiers will call someone if the line gets longer than three people in line. I have stood in lines at Woods which is nowhere near as bad as Wal-Mart for long periods of time. I get panic attacks if I have to stand in a long line. So in my opinion IGA is the best store in town. God bless you all!!!!
love their pizza

Just for the people talking about Vision cards. It may come as a shock but I would bet Wood's and Wal Mart take more in than Gene's. Why not just support all the businesses you can. They all have
certain qualities and in my opinion Gene's is a fine store. We too get pizza there all time.

They do not put good meat over bad meat. If the meat is brown in the middle, it has to do with the meat in the middle not getting oxygen. You go without oxygen and see what color you turn. It is a common thing found with meat that is ground fresh daily and sits in the cold case for a few hours before being purchased. If you find meat that holds its color in the middle for days, it has been "gassed" or had die added to it. The discoloring you find in the middle is not harmful, it is normal. It does not affect the taste or quality. Another common problem is the consumer having their home refrigerator to warm or too cold, which will have a negative effect on the "life" of the meat. And I know that if you do get a bad piece of meat or other item, they are more than willing to replace it or give you a refund.

I have not any problems with Gene's IGA. I think they have really friendly workers and are professional.
I will agree with their meet. The few times I do buy meat there I take it straight home and cook it. It doesn't sit in my refrigerator.I have also noticed it seems they put the good meat over older meat. This has happened almost every time I buy hamburger. The pork always seems to be good though.
I do like Woods meat better and I have never had a problem with them taking my groceries or other customers groceries to their cars. They always ask and do it with a smile on their face as well.
I shop at Woods and IGA they both have their positives and negatives. All stores have their positives and negatives, but it will not me from shopping at either store.
