I'd like a Wegmans!!!
Wegmans is not cheap but they are successful because they have a more diverse ethnic variety of foods rather than the down home Florida items as Publix.

I try my best ot find local small grocers or produce stores. Meats can be iffy in these places. There is a lot of select cuts of beef out there that is impregnated with 8 to 12% solution and the select cut is like shoe leather unless served rare or it has not taste because of the solution. I see that the beef labeled "angus" is not graded so who knows the kind of beef you are getting.

We may have to go back to the red beans and rice. Tomatoes are hard to grow during the summer.

We have been spoiled but we are luck that there are other ethnic foods that we can enjoy instead of the boring red beans and rice.

SuperTarget also sells groceries...
I like a lot of their Archer Farms stuff, but I never have good luck with their produce. It seems to spoil very quickly.

Sometimes you go to a dirty filthy grocery store and still pay high price for your groceries at least at publix the stores are always clean and the fruits and vegetables are always fresh but one thing people need to know you need to shop smart because there always be coupons in the entry door at every publix store with a lot of stuff on sale i was in the store one day and the bathroom tissues was on sale there was a guy he bought a box of tissue that is smart saving

I'd still like to see a Trader Joe's around here. In the meantime, I'll keep going to Publix. If they are out of something or don't carry it, all I've had to do is go to customer service and say something. They've even called me when the item is in.

Publix is where cheapskates go. Queen of the cheapskates used to shop there so she could save money and go on a cruise. Do you Cruise?
