:info: take it easy on the smilies dude...heh

The only thing I don't like about A&P, is that they have a store in Margaretville, New York, and it is very old and outdated...

Did Ahold (#4 or #5 grocery company that owns them now) own Stop & Shop back in the day during the Bradlees years or did they pick up Stop & Shop Later?

Actuly Its Bradlees fult for spining of as there own company they shold have stayed with stop&shop or at least stay with them untill they became a larger chain then they were i mean 105 stores is not a lot when your GOB befor that they 126 stores but Caldor Ames and Jamesway had more in 1995 Caldor had 177 stores by 1999 they had 145 Jamesway Had 135 stores in 1990 by 1995 they had 95 stores Ames keped on going up and down with there store count in 1988 they had 335 stores by early 1990 after auqrring Zayre they had 632 stores in 1995 they were back down to 320 and in 1999 they had 450 stores and when they closed in 2002 they had 327 stores so in a way even Bradlees coundent compeat with that only after 3 years being there own company they filed for ch 11 in jun 1995 so they should have stayed with Stop&Shop and Stop&Shop should hjave done something About it to

When my Shaws opened in 1996, they had the Food Court and Dry Cleaners, etc with their own donuts and things like that. Well, it didn't take long for them to close those services up and become even more bad of a store. When we used to food shop there a year ago, when you'd go to the deli, the salads were disguisting, rotting away, the little coffee machine had cold coffee, and Krispy Kreme brought donuts to the store for 75 cents each. You can get store made ones at the small A&P Super Foodmart in the center of town for 69 cents. Krispy Kremes are small in comparison. That's why we refuse to shop there and we now travel to Southington Price Chopper until the Newington one opens for shopping. Stop & Shop is too expensive. The only store besides Price Chopper would be Super Foodmart. Even though they are small, they sell high quality food.

I don't like Price Chopper


NO NO NO NOT THE COMPANY ITSELF

I'm talking about the image they're conveying


Recently they've been advertising GO CAN CRAZY sale

basically they have a bunch of kids singing "GO CAN CRAZY!" in a terrible rendition of the classic song " I want candy" in voiceover (it doesn't show them actually singing) and a cheesey kids voice as the announcer of the sale meanwhile it shows overly happy kids banging on brand name cans like instruments and two other kids in front stomping on oversized cans that are tied to their feet in a bad rendition of famous street music group "STOMP".


What I don't like about this cheesey commercial is that its clearly showing that their aiming to have their GO CAN CRAZY outsale SHOP RITE's CAN CAN SALE and possibly put Shop Rite out of business!:no:

I LIKE SHOP RITE AND THEIR CAN CAN SALE!:D


I hope Price Chopper fails at their copy cat game and DOESN'T kill off Shop Rite!




Shop Rites Ads are as rememberable as Ames Ads

even though they have a funny logo now:insane::bouncing:

Stop & Shop and Shaw's are pretty much the dominant markets around here in RI. There are some smaller ones like Ro-Jacks, Seabra and Price Rite but I doubt they will last. What I really despise is I have to go to both markets to complete my shopping and often neither store has what I want, necessitating multiple trips. Goddess I wish Star Market and Almacs were still here

I hate Giant Eagle.  They have a monopoly in northeast Ohio.  Long lines, waiting forever to checkout and indifferent service personnel are the norm.  When I moved to Columbus, I started shopping Kroger and haven't looked back.

  The bird has expanded to central Ohio.  The Giant Eagle here is a totally different Eagle than NE Ohio.  On the occasions I stopped, the service was friendly, and checkout was quick.  The key... competition.  I would bet the bird in NE Ohio would change its tune if Kroger came back.

I'm not much of a fan of Food Lion (a.k.a Food Liar).  My boyfriend and I went in there for some soda one time, since they are the closest grocery store to where we live, not to mention they were having an advertised sale on Pepsi products.  Well, we got in there and they had this huge display with various Pepsi products (i.e. Pepsi in it's various forms, Mountian Dew, etc.) and the advertised sale listed right on the display.  Well, we got to the registers and they told us that Mountain Dew isn't a Pepsi product.  Last I checked it was and if it wasn't then they shouldn't have been displaying Mountain Dew with the Pepsi products.

The people in that Food Lion are always rude anyway so it's no loss that we don't shop there anymore.

Wow, that's messed up. That's pretty much like trying to buy Coke using the advertisement to them. Not a good way to lose customers.

You had those Pricey Krispy Kremes too. I feel sorry for you.
Let me Explain, I live around Trenton (NJ/Suburban Phila area) and I shop at Acme (which like Shaws is owned by  SuperValu/Albertson's) and They sold KKD's for 75 cents too.
I must say thank GOD for Supervalu. When they took over Acme, they stopped selling KKD's and went back to selling their own for 45 cents (and theyre big and good too!) then again the local KKD distributor went belly-up

Never been in a Price Chopper, but  for what I know they seem pretty good, good prices they remind me of a cross between Wegmans and Giant-Carlisle (Ahold-PA)

You must go wayyyyy back, Actually I think they've gotten MUCH better with time. All of the ones I shop at are HUGE and NICE!  But, since they are independents (a cooperative) No 2 shoprites are alike.
