Is it just me or is Parkview worse than ever? I always shopped there because it was supposedly 'the friendly hometown store' or whatever they say but seriously the prices are out of control now. I've had many problems with rude employees in the office, deli, cashiers but most of employees there were very helpful. I asked a few employees recently what is happening there and was surprised at what I heard. They are under new management now, they let Mr. Bowser go and they have been firing all the good long-term employees because they want cheap help. Firing them for bogus reasons and treating everyone like garbage. No wonder nobody smiles there anymore, i really feel sorry for all those employees. I will no longer be shopping there because it is the hometown store no more.

The reasons listed above are why I shop for groceries at Walmart!
Mike Bowser was fired. New management has come in. I cant help but wonder if the reason employees are so unfriendly is because of how they are being treated by said management. Mind you it's no excuse to be rude, but I know if I were working under those conditions I wouldn't be too happy there either. Normally I would say quit your job and find somewhere else to work...but where exactly would that be? Jobs are few and far between, and it will only get worse as smoke shop employees lose their jobs due to the PACT Act.

What's that other store in town, the cheap place? That's where I go. Not much selection but you can't beat the prices. Parkview blows.

See, you're losing your mind - shop at this store in town and can't remember the name. Sad case - Shop & Save.

Think before you write - See a doctor - I can't call you a dumb a**- just a forgetful a**- Mistake - mistake - was not going to reply.

Damn - Am I as bad as you are? Thank God, NO.

Parkview and a few other places are getting away with jacking up the prices of the products because they know you aren't going to drive to Olean or Bradford to save 50 cents on say a gallon of milk. So they can pretty much get away with it. All you can do is when you make the trip out of town to wally world is make sure you supply up so you don't get squeezed by them.

Yeah, I screwed up and gave the wrong name.- I called really and his boyfriend answered.

Really and I are going to see the doctor together -Really made another appointment for himself and his boyfriend.

Stop and think - that was my advice and it burned my a**.

Had a great day today - talked with a guy that knows really - his lady found out he likes boys and now he has to face the music.

Life can be a bitch ;-)

Dear wow,
I am so sorry that really has hurt you so badly by taking on a new lover. Perhaps you two should join the "Let's Dish" forum. Or even the Cub Scouts forum.
With regards,

I agree about Parkview's prices... out of control!!!!
I try to do all my shopping at WalMart or Tops. Also the Rewards card at Parkview pisses me off. The cashiers never ask for the card and the service desk wont credit the card after you ring out. And there are only promotions going on once in a while. If they are going to have a rewards card then it should be good all of the time and the cashiers should be instructed to always ask for your card.

Seems good old Parkview has really taken a nosedive. I guess they recently let an employee with 33 years in go without so much as a goodbye and the same to one who had 11 years in, not to mention the store manager for 15 years...they fired him at burger king of all places. Remember the old produce manager? 17 years he had and they booted him out like a piece of garbage. Why you ask? well they are run by Olean Wholesale and their philosophy is cheap help = good help in their book and people....well they dont really matter do they? And the new store manager doesn't even have the balls to face these people when they come in his store.

Why do you want to put these people who work in the Parkview out of work? I know there isn't much here that a Walmart could hurt but right now we should be happy with what we do have and not try to close it!!
