He is still there,but he's assistant manager now. This Gayle is the owners' daughter and I think she came from Tennessee.

Rick did a fine job. I've seen Gayle one time and I don't know if she was just having a bad day or what her deal was but she didn't seem too pleasant and I've heard from other people that she is a complete B**ch! It's best to lose the attitude and turn that frown upside down if you wish to keep your customers. People always feel more welcome when greeted with a smile. Just a few words of advice that I thought you should know:)

Rick was very good at his job,everytime I was there he was very kind and helpful. The girl,Gail,ran the store in the ground. Her dad is still paying for her mistakes. Only reason she was hired was because daddy owns the store. I hear he really drinks now to try and forget the day he hired her.
I want to run that store

I would L o v e to run that store.

That place is a dump and I would make that place a GEM.

The Meat counter should be closed. Last time I was in there, the chicken was yellowish green.

I would love to have the owners phone number.
complete agreement here

I heard they do bad things with the meat,mix the old with the new. Use old meat in the deli. I drive to New Athens to go to the store there. Much better. Number should be in the book.

rick brown was a lazy bum who was always late, slept on the clock, and did nothing while he was there. you must be blind if you thought he did a good, job. yes he is a nice guy but a good worker he is not.im sure gail couldnt give two shits about anything you have to say to her, she is a nice lady and is doing a good job there. the store looks better everytime i go in there. it is a small business which we are lucky to have in this small town.

People will bash anyone on here to make themselves look important. Rick is a good guy with a great work ethic. You can't change things for the better when all the manager is concerned about is making money for herself. There will come a day when Gail will get hers. As they say, karma's a b@#$h. What goes around comes around. Give it long enough and she will get hers.

I am not bashing anyone.

I would like to work there. Maybe this manager just needs an assistant to help her out.

Its kind of sad because that store could be really a great place for the citizens of Marissa.

They just need someone who can turn it around.

They just had the health inspector in there just recently The store is in bad shape the whole back of the deli leaks every time it rains..... Yes they do change the dates on the meat among other things.. I know of a boxed cheese cake bought and it was outdated by two years... I was in there getting some bottled water and I seen some Dog bones.. Thought id get one for my pup while I was there the date on it said 1999 So I kindly Put the Water back and walked out of the store...There are girls that work there that are very nice I can say that But one I wont mention no name...She a Complete and Utter Bitch...and She clearly needs to stop Tipping the bottle while at work.

I was in Marissa Food Mart just a couple of Saturdays ago and there was a guy working on the freezer that houses the junk foods.(Pizza pockets, etc.) I went around the corner to where the pizza was and what do I see??? Almost completely thawed pizza....all the fish products were mushy. DONT BUY ANYTHING FROZEN FROM HERE! Just a warning....if they do not remove boxed and canned goods beyond thier expired dates, I would use extreme caution when buying frozen product as well. I dont want them outta business, but they really need to get with the program here! I like convenience, But I wish they would replace or donate products that are expired!!!! Is anybody with me on this?

GREAT WORK ETHIC?! YOU MUST HAVE NEVER WORKED WITH HIM THEN. THE EMPLOYEES THERE EVEN HAD BETS GOING TO SEE HOW LATE HE WAS GOING TO BE GETTING TO WORK, AND IT ALWAYS TOOK FOREVER FOR HIM TO GET WORK DONE SO THE STORE COULD GET CLOSED AT NIGHT. HE DID NOTHING BUT PUSH HIS WORK OFF ONTO OTHER PEOPLE.
