I work at Berkot's,am a cashier too.If there is ever an issue with a cashier,then go to management with it.Putting it on here doesn't take care of anything.I've heard some bad things about a cashier and have went to the manager but if you don't let them know from your side then it only goes so far.They do not sell rotten meats.We've had people bring things back sayin they bought it that way and we're not stupid to it.People have to take the groceries out of their cars and refridgerate them.Alot forget stuff in the car for a while and find it nasty looking then.Well,what did you think would happen to it!Lmao,people are crazy and we deal with it daily.

I haven't shopped at Berkots since they first opened. I had to show id to pay with a check, and that turned me off. I never had to do that at the old store. So I really don't care if Berkots goes out of business when Walmart opens.

I moved after my last post and I don't grocery shop in Watseka anymore at all. Now I prefer to shop at Aldi and Walmart and stock up every couple of weeks or so. And yes, Berkots put a bad taste in my mouth eight years ago, so sue me!

I did the same thing as "dislikes Berkots"... they wanted my bank account number and all kinds of personal information that I didn't feel they needed just for me to write a check. My address, phone number, and drivers' license number are on my checks, and actually, I don't feel they need all that either, much less all of the other info they wanted. In these days of identity theft, the less info you give out, the better. I paid cash that time ( I was saving it in case I wanted to stop and get something to eat or drink) and have never stepped foot in that store again. I hope it DOES go out when Super Wal*Mart is finished. The employees all have an attitude, so it won't break my heart if they're out of a job.

Berkots isnt going anywhere.... Such fine quality in their meats will keep people coming back. And I agree Quality too will be fine as they have faithful customers and those who can not drive.
Berkot's will be gone. People wont need to go to there anymore. They only go now because Wal Mart is so close. when you can get everything you need in 1 store why go to another?

The main reason I do not go to Berkots is the ID policy. If they do not trust their employees ability to tell the difference between someone 17 and someone 40.....there is a problem. I also do not like the "OOPS......We messed up on our ad" BS that happens EVERY week!
Well.....now that I think about it.......if they are not smart enough to proof read their ad's maybe they can't tell if someone is 40 and not a 17 year old trying to buy smokes.
I also heard a few years ago that they had a "manager" type guy that worked there that was showing some high school kids how to huff redy-whip.
Any where you go to buy "smokes" they will ID you no matter what. It is the law!

We stopped going there because the price you see is not what what you will be charged. They did this to me a couple of times, but I found out after I got home. The last time I caught them in the store and then they made me stand in line to get back, only about two dollars but I was not letting them rip me off again. Have never went back.

Super Walmart isn't going to have a grocery department. Or will they sell tires. I saw the plans of it. But who knows about the grocery department. They change their mind twenty million times. Lol.
