I have seen a lot of people take meat back to food giant over the past few months Some of their meat may be cheaper than Walmart but it is sure not fresher. I saw someone the other day at walmart checking the meats with some sort of handheld device. You dont see that at food giant.

they don't have a butcher anymore..they have it cut somewhere else and it's frozen when they get it...the same people that own FG own save a lot...they get their meet trucked in...the only store in town anymore that has a butcher is Gunn's...Walmart Supercenter has theirs trucked in too...

You better watch your receipts too..they will put something on sale in the paper,but won't change it in the register...I was burned twice on one receipt...I guess they think no one will notice...That is cheating the customer and I don't think it is an accident.. The customer sure don;t get breaks at the register...

It has to be the exact same brand...Walmart is so strict on this policy.

You can price match food giant store brand to Walmart store brand. There shouldn't be a problem, if there is talk to a manager

Well the only way to be sure you don't get meat off of a truck is to go out and shoot you some meat. Get off your ass and quit bitchin. Plenty of hogs on the island.

so I guess you are a vegetarian since all meat comes off a truck when delivered to the store - no matter the store.

If you can't tell by looking at a pack of bacon that it it ruined then you need to find someone to do your shopping

yea you may be right,but it is really hard to tell sometimes,just like I got some pork chops at Food Giant and they looked great and a real good price,and when we opened them the ones on bottom had more bones than meat ,and not to mention all the bone chips.Out of 8 pork chops I think we averaged like 3 maybe 4.

I thought food giant still had a butcher to do cuts for customers.

You are right about the bone chips. That is one of the reasons why I still got meat at Food Giant instead of Walmart or Kroger - just too many bone chips in the pre-packaged meats. I hate it now that you have to watch for chips in food gaint meats in addition to the date and spoilage. I have been lucky as far as spoilage - not a bad one yet but I have seen it.

that is what you get when you buy mixed loin chops instead of center cut. of course you can't afford center cut in either walmart or food giant. Gunn's has them on sale fairly often---I shop at Gunn's in Wilson--just don't go down in that part of Osceola much anymore.
