You don't know what you are talking about. What's the matter, did they catch you shoplifting and tell you to stay out? Rick ain't even there no more, the store is cleaner than it ever has been and young boys are always walking aroudn with a bad attitude these days. You sound like you have a personal problem to me, or have it in for someone who works there. Ricks has done three times the business over the past few years than it ever has. If it has gotten so damn bad, why is it doing so much more business than previously. I work there, I know. I overheard that it made twice what it did five years ago. If it has went downhill why is it making more money than ever. You are wanting to stir trouble and probably stir trouble a lot.

Do they carry your grocerys out at Walmart? Do they cash your paycheck at Walmart? Do they even give you the time of day at Walmart? Do you realize how most intelligent people feel about Walmart? Your type is just a whiner with a personal problem, wanting to make trouble because you are either a jealous sole or have a huge chip on your shoulder. I work at Ricks, and they are doing more than twice the business they previously did. I know for a fact that the owners always scold the employees when they catch one of them not greeting the customers with a smile. Maybe the reason you see so many people there on social securtity check day is because most young people have left the area because of trouble makers like YOU. If you feel Robin or Barry are not doing their jobs, then complain and let management or the owners know it. Don't get on here like some little retarded child and be a coward about it. If you really care so much then do the grown up thing and complain about Barry or Robin to the managers. As far as cleanliness, I notice so much more painting and sprucing up lately and I notice how clean the floors stay all the time. You have a childish personal problem with someone at that store. Everyone I know loves the family that owns it and appreciates the small town personal service like carry out boys and check cashing. Rick is hardly ever in the store at all anymore, but if you got a problem with how Robin or Barry do their job, tells the manager. Don't get on here and trash a wonderful business that does great. Considering the fact that business seems to have doubled over the past few years, I fail to see a big problem myself. Also, what does a "May-December" relationship in any business have to do with how well they sell grocerys. May December relationship go on in all businesses, not just Ricks. Why did you even need to mention that? It tells everyone you are just a troublemaking pos with no life and are a very jealous spiteful person to even mention something that petty.
fine people

The whole Jarrell family are fine people and run a respectable, honorable, decent business. They are and always have been the most respected people in Glen Daniel. Any person who would support Walmart over supporting a community business has either gotten the boot at Ricks for causing trouble or been fired for stealing. There are no more respected people in Glen Daniel than the Jarrells. The floors and shelves are cleaner in that store than any other store around. Take your childish jealousy some where else. They do a fine job considering some of the people they have to deal with. No where else has carry out boys, so go ahead and support walmat. Walmart is scorned by anyone with any backbone or character because it destroys communities. Walmart sells alcohol and rolling papers for the druggys. Walmart don't care about anyone, not even their employees. I cringe when I have to go in Walmart because all you smell is beer breath and body odor. I shop at Ricks and have for over thrity years. Sorry they caught you causing trouble and you can't shop there anymore.

Everyone, who to hell is everyone? Now where have I heard that phrase used before? EVERYONE says so? No they don't because "everyone" I know stays off the booze and don't gossip like a bunch of drunks. No, EVERYONE don't say that, just trash like YOU and everyone who talks to trash. Maybe EVERYONE just like you says it. Hos is that? Everyone, hmmmmm, key word as to your identity,. You might just get asked for a list of EVERYONE. Then watch how fast EVERYONE backs up on what they said and denys saying it.

First of all, learn to use a period and spell. Secondly, no, everyone does not say that about Ricks. Third, grow up a little bit, you sound like a pathetic loser iwth no life. I love shopping at Ricks, don't drive and appreciate those people. I guess the fact that people like you only shop where they sell beer or drugs tells a lot. Your comment looks like a child typed it. Sober up and if you have a problem with someone flirting or having a may december romance at ricks, talk to the owners. lol
Meat eater

I drive all the way from Beckley every month to get my meat at Ricks IGA. No one else gives me the quality and service they do with a personal touch. I spend from $200.00 to $300.00 a month on meat alone at Ricks. They cut it up and wrap it for me unlike that rotten stuff at walmart. People who support a huge company like walmart over the little guy are worthless. Shut up the drama and learn to appreciate a good business. You must be one of the dunks or druggys everyone is always yammering about to spout all that childish drama.

I think Ricks is the best store I have ever shopped in and I have been in many stores all over the country big and small and I also know how hard it is to keep a store in good shape like Ricks. They have the best meat for sure. The store is very clean and the people that work there are fast and friendly. They keep the shelves stocked and its rare for them to be out of stock of something I need. They even have someone to carry the groceries out for you and you can't find that very often. Walmarts prices have gone through the roof. What they did is run all the small people out of bussiness so now you don't have much of a choice of where to shop and you have to pay what they charge. Well I do have a choice and I choose Ricks. Thanks to the people that work there.

I've only got 1 problem with rick's he's running out of room for what he sell's. But I have shopped at Rick's sense he opened and I intend to still shop there. the hell with Walmart>
as much as gas is I have a few dollars extra to buy something else instead of buying gas to get me up there and have to walk a country mile to just get in that place and worry about somebody knocking u in the head to steal u're purse or something because u have to put your own bags in your car. At least Rick gives u a little pretection by giving u a carry out person. Leave Rick's alone it's convenient and a whole lot cheaper that the carry outs in this area

I am not or ever was an employee for Ricks and I have never been on welfare. I am giving my opinion on Ricks store just like you. Isn't it wonderful that we have choices of where to shop? If you don't like it then don't shop there. However if you decide to get on here and give your opinion then don't be upset when no one agrees with you. It is impossible for a store to have all 100 percent perfect employees all the time. Sometimes you get a bad one and you have to weed them out. In this area it is very hard to find someone that wants to work because there are so many people getting checks and so you don't have alot to choose from. You can hire someone that you think is going to be great only to find out that you made a mistake so I think that Ricks is doing a terrific job for this community.

I am so thankful that we have a store for the elderly and locals to shop and the ones that don't drive or are too sick to go the dreadful walmart are afforded that conveniece. What we all do without Ricks. The whole family, Rick, Freda, Robby and his wife, Jackie, Robin (if I missed anyone sorry) are all wonderful, decent honest people. For someone to get on here and attempt to smear them is terrible. They do a great job and so many depend on them for a paycheck, for their groceries and have for years. Thank you Ricks and I am so sorry we have one person who is low enough to get on here and say mean things about any of the carry out boys, the cashiers or the family. It was a mean, childish attack on a great business and family. They run an excellent business in my, and everyone I know, opinion. It has just gottn better over the years. Pooey on the person who started this thread, and as they can see "everybody" does not agree with them one little bit.

Compared to the retards they hire at Walmart, Ricks employees are absolutely perfect. Have you ever noticed the people that work at walmart, good grief. How often do they carry something out for you? Instead they act like you are stealing and take up your time hunting your receipt. What if Ricks asked to see your receipt and check it as you went out the door? I love Ricks and will shop there even more now that I saw this ignorant trashy thread. Might go there right now and get Mark to slice me a big ole ham. With all the ones that disagree with you, you just gave them some free advertising, dummy. haha

udging from your posst, I will wager that a whole lot of people talk about your faults and shortcomings too. To keep using the word God and then act the way you tells me everything about you. You think Walmart has all perfect employees, or Krogers, or even the Dollar Store? You need to get off the booze or get help with your problem. Ricks is great and I am not an employee, nor am I a relative, just a long time customer who appreciates a fine business in the community. People like you need rocks threw at them for trying to ruin what little we have in the community. Please leave asap.

Sorry to tell you but the new generation of kids are all like that. I don't care where you go, the younger kids have an attitude. Shame the old emplyees get old and have to retire, but it is not just at Ricks, it is with all the younger people. You can't change the whole world, get used to it, with computers and video games you will see the children become more and more disrespectful and unfriendly. Don't attack Ricks when it is every where.

Put it back in the same condition it was when you took it and there will be no questions. Put it back in the next five days in perfect condition. I have the whole deal on video and realize you have been in trouble before. I just want it back NOW. I know who you are and have all I need to get your butt locked up AGAIN. I will make its value so it will be a felony arrest unless you put it back. If you don't put it back, you will be arrested for a felony, if you do, that will be the end of it. You surely have the sense to realize I know who took it, and why, or why else would I post on this thread????? PUT IT BACK or it will be worth over $1200.00 which will be a felony. Get it? You better. I am being nice about this.

Really is the item worth going to jail over? You have a chance to put it back, so put it back, fair is fair. If you don't put it back, it will only bring you a lot of sorrow.
