So much going on with the new owners. They are rude, and very unprofessional. They spend a lot of money on remodeling - ok, a little upkeep might be necessary, but not at our cost. His prices are outrageous and I guess he thinks he has us under his finger since he's the only supermarket in War. I for one, will go elsewhere and refuse to pay his high prices. He has cut down the hours of all the best workers. You can't even find anyone to carry out your groceries any more!! Okay, I can handle that .. but not the rudeness and disrespect he has for his employees. Good grief, I've not seen these guys with a smile on their face one time. If we refuse to do our shopping there, he WILL LOWER the prices. Your money is not going far at Grant's, that's for certain. Your thoughts? He has disrespected the employees and customers he has from this town .. what say ye?

If you don't like it drive 45 min and go somewhere else. Be thankful grants is close by during those times you can't drive. It's worth the price to have them clean the place up. What do you want them to give you your food and carry it out for you?

If they don't want my money by treating me with respect, then I will go somewhere else. Times are really hard, so you have to go where your money will buy you more. If the community sticks together then they will lower their prices..and respect the customer.. No customer means NO business for them..

Did you notice how high the deli prices have gone .. and the portions are smaller. from $3.99 to $5.59 for a dinner??? Dollar General prices are now cheaper than Grants .. and they are friendlier. I hear he likes to threaten employees with cutting their hrs. and that he has!!!! I think some need to check with the labor board. Hiring new employees and cutting the others hours without reason?

yes it is nice to have a local suppermarket. But i have also noticed the changes good and bad ( mainly more bad than good). yes they have cleaned the store up nicely but that is the only good thing they have done. They r VERY rude with higher prices and slowly weeding out the Rasi's employees' which isn't fair to them at all. Some of them has been there since it was Jones-n-Sray and deserve to be full time and even managers. don't understand why they bring people in to work that doesn't even live in the county. There r a lot of good people around here that need jobs to. As far as carry outs, i don't have a problem carrying out my tings but for the older people yes they should help them thats a tradition thats been done for many years in the store since it was Jones-n-Spay and the people around here a use to that. This town is made up of alot of the older generation then the young so they need to resect them and the traditions that they r use to or I'm afraid that Grant's will not last long in this town. Thinking maybe they should put in a opinion box and let the customers voice their opinions on how to improve the store. Those that always complained about Rasi's, i bet your eating your words now:)

I think if we can get enough people to boycott the place - maybe he'll straighten up. I don't have to buy there .. in fact, I might just start a van ride type service and take folk to other grocery store for a few $$. No taxis here anymore but we can park n ride?

I for one like the changes they have made. Yes they are a little on the high side, everything is going up. Obama is to blame for the way things are in this country!! As far as the employes maby instead of saying they are rude try to be nice to them instead of complaining about prices to them? The way gas prices are it would be cheaper to pay more there. Plus a lot safer to go there instead of passing coal trucks. A business has to make a profit to make it.

If the customer is not satisfied then they will not visit....Then they will have NO business and will go out....If the community sticks together, maybe the new owner will get the hint and lower prices and bring the people back that will take care of his customers. In today's economy you have to do what the customer want's or you have no customer or business. Also, George Bush got this country in the mess it's in.. If you would educate yourself and go back and look at the mess it was in prior to Obama then you may comprehend this mess. But I can see your are not educated so you will not understand..

Can you honestly name something he has done to fix this mess that you are complaining about? It don't take a brain surgeon to see that he hasn't done one thing to put people back to work! It is a shame that people stand behind this man that has done nothing to help the working class but gives tax payers dollars away to hand outs!!!!!!!food,gas,TAXES everything is higher last I ck bush has been out of office for THREE YEARS. Even after suffering for three years people will still vote for him what a shame.

Sure would like to go in that store one time and not see the sour faces of management. Oh, I forgot, they aren't here to make friends and win awards - they are here to make $$.
