Just need those cash reditors up and running.
I realize that the milk coolres were out for a wile bou them bid ole hams hanging in the corning. The smeell couldmake a mscoy choke. Also i have seen rats,bugs ans un cleanliness. Thw workers are lazy and what i mesn by this it is most of the stock boys. Not all. The cashiesra are very nice. except for the cell phone issue. Some are very rude,.I meant to saythat the smell could gag a maggott. You do have some very good workers there. They don talk o there phones and are vry good to customers, I will not shop there again unti this matter is resolve, and believe mre io was a good customer. PS,i almoest fell when i walked by the cooler that was leaking. Thank GOD somone helped catch me.

I would love to know who you are because I would throw such a fit that the management would have to fire your lazy arse. r u the one with the big hair? I was in there last week, you were standing in one of the isles, blocking customers from getting around you, gossiping with a customer (and no it was not anything to do with thriftway) you knew I was behind you trying to get thru but you just kept right on running your mouth finaly I said "excuse me" and you turned around and looked at me as if to say "how dare you interupt my conversation" I don't like you. now, I hope you have good "dam" day

ok heres the deal i am at thriftway 5 days a week 8 hours a day, 1 terry isnt retired hes there everyday but Wednesday and sunday, 2 the only flirt is angie white(big suprise there) 3 the smell is because they had a milk cooler go out, and the people that was working on it couldnt get to it for a bit. Alot of the times when its backed up its because they are quite busy, first of the month and banana wednesday so theres for your bitching about the being backed up part, and finally 4th, they do as much business as all the other grocery stores in the county only on a smaller margin due to size, they outdo just about everybody in prices, and its a good friendly atmosphere, so..... tina west and jill bowen keep your mouths shut since you have no idea to begin with, and to anita no honey he isnt retired come there 11-12 5 days a week except sunday and wednesday and ill guarantee he will be there in his office working on prices, or sales for the store. thank you and have a good damn day.

My husband is one of those "stock" boys and I'd appreciate if you not talk about him that way, mmkay? There's one one actual stock boy that's an idiot. The other three and just fine and very nice.

lol your hilarious you know that... seriously bud i love ya... you make me laugh you dont even know who you were talking about. Does nobody know anyone in a town like Gate City? Who works where and such, it isnt good enough that they beat out food lion and food city on most prices, but you have to complain, I think it must be in the human genome to complain about a good thing, some people honestly come in there and say they dont like shoping there because the buggies that they have, i know i got behind a very rude lady the other day when i came in to do some shopping. Cant we all just get along, it isnt like food lion and food city go without their flaws, you havent worked at food city or food lion, I have worked at 1 of those 2, and i must say that the one i worked at, you couldnt leave when you were scheduled to, you had to stay and stay and stay, and not get payed for it, why dont you try that for almost 2 years of not getting payed for 4 hours every day because you would get fired if you went on home, When i have 2 boys and a little girl to care for, and i must say im appalled to hear that just because thriftway has its "flaws" that everyone has to start a damn riot, come on nobody or no business is perfect, get used to it or get over it, you have to say so in the matter.

the "smell" that everbody keeps smelling, is not from the milk coolers, it is from the salt cured meats that are hanging on the wall beside the dairy cooler! all yall should know that since you are from the country. ever been in a smoke house? duh! as for me, no complaints, they do a good job and keep me from having to go to the larger stores alot of the times.

I don't shop at thriftway because its not close to me, but I have been in there a couple of times, but not enough to have an opinion of the place. However, I'm guessing if the "workers" attitudes on here reflect their customer service, I'm lucky I don't go there.

They need to move the mop bucket from the front door. It just looks bad setting in front of the building. They need to paint the posts at the unloading window and move the empty cartons to the back of the store building.

Thriftway works to help all people in Scott County by having prices that are below most of the prices of the larger chains. My husband and I go there often and the cashiers have treated us with kindness. Yeah, the store needs to upgrade some of its coolers and freezers and do need to use colorox to clean all coolers and freezers and the meat room. We like their meats but we always check the date the meat was supposed to be sold.
I like many people from the Dungannon area and do not approve of the negativity.

The truth of the matter is this, I can remember Thriftway since long before most of you guys stopped crapping your diapers. Thriftway has good deals on a lot of their grocerys and thats a fact. And I like to see these smaller stores do well and give the larger stores a run for the money. Stores like this keep the larger stores from dominating the grocery bizz and skyrocketing their prices. So even if you dont shop at Thriftway you should be thankful that someone is competing with the larger stores,for prices sake. So the bottem line is this,if you dont like lower priced grocerys then shop somewhere else and shut the he!! up. You people on topix running this store down are pathetic. SO JUST SHUT YOUR PIE HOLE .

I love thriftway and I know the fraziers that own it and the are super sweet people. All of terry's kids have worked in the store for money. They are not spoiled either they are a very down to earth family. If you don't like thriftway stay away and let every1 else get the good deals.

The Thriftway market has good deals on their groceries. The eggs and soft drinks are always a good deal. In the summer time they have the best prices on tomatoes. The other produce is not very good quality. The employees are always nice and helpful...BUT their meat dept. is NOT!!!!!! Even if it looks pink and fresh-BEWARE!!!! Also, the frozen food is not. The coolers looks nasty. A person would think that as much business as they get (It is usually busy) the meat wouldn't be as stinky as it is. I buy eggs and drinks, that's about all. And I didn't catch them on a bad day either, for I remember the Thriftway a long time ago. The other butcher (I think he died} did good. Always fresh product... Sorry to see what was a good store (Overall) go downhill. Coolers are never all working. Even the newest one against the far wall looks old and forget the lights in it. Thriftway clean up the store. I wonder if the Health Dept. ever comes around???? They should.
