Maybe the Berkots store in your town is "a great place to pick up fantastic meat", but you might want to visit the one in South Wilmington. The place is a dump! You have to check the use by date on EVERYTHING IN THE STORE, and i mean everything. I purchaced a jar of pickles that had a throw out date of MARCH 15 last week. The Berkots in South Wilmington has become a dumping ground for all the expired food from all the other outlets. To me nd my family it is worth the 20 min drive to Morris to shop at Jewel, at least we are going to get food that will not make us sick! Screw Berkots!!!

You need to check the labels closely. The federal government has changed labeling codes. Some items are now posted with a "born on" date of instead of "expires on". So just be aware and look closely. Some of the items are a "sell by" date. So the item may still be good for a while after you purchase it. But, yes, if it was SOLD after the sell by or use by date thae store can be fined. Just be aware and read your labels.

You have to be careful of that anywhere you go, regardless of how popular the store is. I once bought chocolate milk from the Morris Walmart that expired either the day I bought it or the day after. I also think my sister bought baby food from there that had beed expired for a year. Shop smart and learn your lesson.
P.s. Yeah the South Wilmington store IS REALLY BAD about that though...

The South Wilmington store is worse now than it was Super Value. I had high hopes when I heard Berkot's were taking it over, that didn't last long. Anything they have in the sale papers are non-existant when you get to the store. They should just stick with the Coal City store, since that is the only decent place. Back when it was Marketti's people use to travel to SWilly from other towns to shop there. Now people from SWilly travel. Poor excuse for a store. I go to the gas station when I need milk.

The Berkot's here in Lockport is excellent; always very clean and well stocked. We prefer Berkot's to Jewel or even Walmart.

The berkots store in Dwight is a joke. Impossible to find a green pepper that isn't soft. The meat is garbage. Their so called filet Mignon looks like liver. They contend that it is all excellent but they have obviously never used it. Its an absolute joke. The selection sucks, the butchers are rude and on top of it all, everything is overpriced.

Vague advertising. Orland ad didn't say it was for Orland only. Found that out after going to Lockport. Wasn't able to get sale prices I expected.
