Went there last week and bought some freezer stuff. A few days later I looked at the package and it expired in March. So glad I could pay and extra 10% at the register. They are like any other small grocery, nasty and outdated

Yes they do charge 6% tax...unless its food items which are supposed to be nontaxable.

The way the sign reads, I thought the prices that they were selling at was 10% above cost. No when I checked out they added 10% to allready high prices. I will never shop there again, what a rip off. Consumer beware I guess. Like I said anyone would be crazy to pay those high prices plus 10% on top of that.

I hate Wal-Mart just as much as anyone, but in today's economy, we simply cannot afford to be nickel-and-dimed. Meijer was a huge blessing to Richmond. Some actual competition for Wal-Mart. Now, you can find Meijer and Kroger competing for deals and it's a great thing. I still refuse to shop at Wal-Mart, but rather shop for the deals at Meijer and go to Kroger for the remaining groceries. E.W. James was always ridiculously overpriced. The same pack of Sargento cheese would be $4.00+ at E.W. James while maybe only $2.88 at Meijer. All that eventually adds up.

From the sound of it, Cash Saver is not doing much better. Just changed the name hoping to sound more economical and still screwing over the customers when they get to the register.

Here's an amazing concept. Lower your prices and get more business. If you can't compete with Meijer, Kroger, hell, even Save-a-Lot, you don't deserve to be in business anyways.

As for the disgruntled employee, you know, working in customer service, I understand how you can get upset with customers sometimes. But rule #1 is to never actually show or vent that frustration to the customers. Step back and take a look at your store. It sucked before because they nickel-and-dimed people, and it still sucks now because they're pulling a bait-and-switch. My advice to you is to find another job, because "Cash Saver" won't be around for long.

LOL What planets are you living on? Meijer is expensive. Go to Kroger for the deals, even wal mart is cheap. Or if you are really on a budget, go to Save a lot.

Keep in mind this is a family owned grocery store not a huge corporation such as wal-mart or meijer they don't buy by the masses to get cheaper products. I'm sure there doing the best with what they have, I know its much cheaper than when it was E.w. James. But go ahead and support the big corporations instead of the little guys, that's the real attitude.
I will support the "BIG CORPORATIONS" if that is what it takes to save money. I work too hard to just give my money to a store that you call family owned. If I can get the same product cheaper at Walmart, Kroger then that is what I will do. So yes, if you want to call saving money an attitude, than I have a lot of it, you are absolutely ignorant ot even make that mistake. When you buy your clothes, do you go to a mom and pop store, or have you shopped at Penny's, Kohls, Sears etc? I am guessing you have never looked at a sale add from a corporate store, only the small privately owned store.

I lived in Ohio and shopped at Meijer for 12 years. Now that I have lived in Richmond for 10 years and I find that Walmart in general is the best place to shop except for the meat, I will not buy meat at Walmart. As for Meijers, they are more expensive than Walmart.

Meijer is not cheaper than Walmart, I was very disappointed when they 1st opened, I went their once and never went back, just look at the parking lot, at 4 o'clock in the evening Meijer parking lot looks like Walmarts parking lot at 2:00 in the morning.

I have recently started doing all of my major shopping at Cashsavers. The meat prices are great when they are having a sale. I still go to Save-A-Lot for the extra stuff because it is cheaper. I spent $60 there last month and bought enough meat to feed my husband and I for a whole month. I would rather pay a little more for the smaller store, than have to fight the crowds in Wally World or Meijer.

I like Save-A-Lot for canned goods, Kroger for meat and seafood, Meijer for world/specialty foods, and Wal-Mart for boxed foods, cereals and produce. Now if I only had the time and gas money make such a trip lol.

the store clearly states that they add 10% to your order. and they charge the price they paid to purchase and get it to the store. they may not have deals on everything you need to buy.. but go somewhere else for those items if you chose. adding 10% to the shelf price is not difficult. basic math skills. add it up when in front of the item and you will know what you will be charged..... our hg hill store converted to a cash saver to try and stay viable. their old customers were dying off .. literally and they were hard pressed to get new customers. it is really simple.. if you don't like it .. shop elsewhere.. if you want to shop their specials .. it's a good deal. as far as customer service..our store kept the employees that were there. some of them have good customer support and some don't have good attitudes. i can't say that i have had great customer support at the big box stores. to each their own..it's the USA shop where you want.. stop the hate.

I think its pretty funny how ignorant some of you are, I worked at e.w James and we took over 25% buy didn't tell the customer that. And now as cash savers we only take a messily 10%(just enough to get the product to the store) and now every customer we have flips there lid over it....silly.
I agree with you Anonymous Worker! We are getting one near me in High Ridge, Missouri starting on December 1st and can't wait to check it out! We received the mailer and it clearly says it is at cost plus 10% at the check out. Obviously the people complaining on here about it being "misleading" didn't read the mailer or rules when they went in. Always be aware of your surrounding and posting in the grocery stores. It's your responsibility to do so not the grocers responsibility to stand at the door and tell everyone it will cost you 10% more at the checkout. Read the postings!
