Went to the one in Lima it's nothing but off brands, sour smellin produce and their workers making older people who can barely stand without help bag their own groceries..... It's just another save a lot but worse

If it is like Aldi's, I'll be shopping there. I sometimes shop in the one in Defiance, and you can save serious bucks there. I'm talking like milk for $1.79/gallon! Potato chips $1.49 for the big bag - other good savings!

I like how Van Wert's residence aren't good enough to get a real grocery store. We get the one where Krogers bad ideas and nearly expired items go. Guess that's what happens when you're town doesn't welcome business so people (the ones that want to) can work.

I'm not real sure y ppl keep complaining about different grocery stores coming to van wert. What the city needs is a larger selection of shopping stores. I personally see wall mart as the black hole of van wert and unless u go to a different town u have nowhere else to go

http://www.courierpress.com/news/2012/aug/24/... this is just one story on the Rulers that came up when I did a search. These stores are opening in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, that I know of there may be other states as well, from the newspaper articles available it sure looks like a good thing. Oh, well, in a perfect world people would do real research and have some idea of the facts before posting all their negatives, lol

Went to the one in Lima...saved big on numerous items. It was clean and the checker was very friendly. There were some name brands but alot of Kroger brands but I've found those to be okay and I saw no bad produce...just good prices. I think it will give Sav A Lot some competition and that's good for the consumer.

Sav A Lot is gross, I havent been inside for years. I'd rather pay a dime more for things that aren't a week from expiring or that don't have stems, seeds, leaves and bad products inside of the can or box. I understand some people don't care about quality and some need to save every dime, but I hope this new store isn't more of the same. Kroger brands are usually ok, but a store full of their brand and off brands isn't my thing. Plus I like to do one stop shopping, many times the generic brands don't have everything I need for the week. If you want sugary cereals you can find numerous generic ones, but if you want granola or a decent whole grain with fruit they don't make them. Then you have to check into nutritional value. Generic cheese if often chock full of processed junk, not only does it effect the taste and how it melts but it's twice as bad for you.

I look for nutrition as number one, I find that Pick & Save is the best. Their nash finch brand organics are very good and decently priced. I also like their dollar aisle, I read labels, know what I am doing and can find very decent buys there. The produce aisle has improved dramatically with a new manager, I think. Try them, you will be pleasantly surprised, oh, they have products that walmart doesn't carry, and they are cheaper on most items. Enjoy your shopping. No, I don't work there!

Do they carry cilantro and alfalfa or bean sprouts yet? What about kale and pomegranates? I haven't been in there in at least six months, I know they didn't carry any of those items then. Produce makes up a large portion of my cart, I buy a variety of fruits and veggies during the off months (in the spring and summer I go to the farmer's markets) and Marsh/MSM has always been my in town choice.

I have never heard of cilantro sprouts, as far as sprouts go though, growing your own is always best; sprouts are notoriously involved in food poisoning, they MUST be rinsed twice daily, and eaten within three to five days to keep things under control, that's why they have been left by the wayside at most grocers. Also the continuous spraying at the Marsh produce section is NOT good, it just encourages mold.

yep, that's what people who shop for nutrition and value want sprouts and pomegranates in the winter, lol, Oh, and kale? walmart has it for the cheapest,if that is what you want. Do you buy beans? Many nutritionists are now trying to get beans reclassified as a veggie because of the nutritional value, myself, I hope it doesn't happen because it would turn them into a "yuppie" food that you snobs who shop at Marsh would cause to be an elite high priced item!
please

Pomegranates are at their peak in the winter. The only place I've ever been able to find them is Pick N Save. Marsh carries the best selection of produce and it's fresher than other places.
I would never buy "fresh" anything from Wal Mart, the only thing I ever buy there occasionally is canned or boxed stuff.
I shop at Marsh all the time, that makes me a snob?
Way to judge people.

I mostly agree with you except for the produce, they don't really carry a big selection. And I have noticed that things like lettuce and potatoes purchased from there go bad more quickly than the same items purchased from Marsh.
I think Pick N Save has a much better meat department.
did agree

I would have agreed with you a couple months ago on the produce, that was my point, it has improved dramatically, check it and see. agree about the meat dept.

There's already 2 grocery stores, and Van Wert is a small town. A third grocery store is absolutely pointless.

the more competition there is the lower the prices! as far as walmart their grocery section is a joke, was out there yesterday and half of what I went for was off the shelves, just big empty spots. I also noticed that prices have went up on lots of items. I don't like savealot, they are priced comparably to picknsave, but the quality of their stuff is substandard on most things. Marsh seems to be the most expensive and doesn't even have a lot of what I buy from P&S, so I think another option is a great idea, evidently the company does, too, you don't think they didn't check out the competition do you? What I don't understand is why you are complaining, how is a new grocer coming here hurting you? If you don't want to go, don't, really, I'm serious why is it bothering you so much?

Marsh by far has the best meat and produce! Yeah it's pricey but if higher quality food is what we get for spending more, I will take it! And they have great customer service but pick n save has friendly cashiers too!

I dont care for any of the grocery stores around here period. If you ever get out of here, try going to a grocery store anywhere in the south, and I mean South, not southern Ohio either. They put all are crappy little stores to shame. I'm use to places like Whole Food, Central Market
