Hello mylotters Family! Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Yesterday after dinner we went out to buy some food for a week and saw some changes in the store I know, I`m sensitive when it comes seeing their faults and had made some discussions about their price tags but to be fair I`ll be sharing now their improvement on this I saw there are people around now checking price tags at their shelves and making sure those discounts will be accurate and reliable I just hope they will continue doing it to give buyers comfort visiting their stores How about you my dear mylotters? Did you somehow notice the changes on some stores? Did you think that there are good managers and staff making their job well by improving on the problem? It feels good that others giving some effort on improving their performances when given some complaints Photo from: youtube.com (google)

Last week while I was shopping alone in one of our supermarts here, I had an altercation with the teller or cashier. I was surprised the price in their computer has a great difference with its tag. I told her that's too embarrassing if the customer has enough money to buy such item and he has short of cash because the price tag isn't updated.

I have had several altercation/argument with cashiers with regard to wrong pricing , low quality , selling products that are old etc etc .. I have always received an incentive after they investigated , which shows that they do care ..I feel it is the staff that is to be blamed , not taking off stuff with date bar or sticking the price tags on local products

Often this unfortunately happens to me as well. My mother sends me a grocery shopping. I mark on a sheet the prices of individual products. In the end, when I get to the cashier, prices are never the same! And, who knows why I (and every other client) have to pay more and more of the due! Only my mother once had to argue with the foreman
@Srbageldog Yes and it happened to me 3 times and let them aware of it Good thing that my husband is very careful looking at it before we go out of the store but lately they are working on it around here and I find it good I hope there will be a way that your stores do something about your concerns

Great that you found some lower prices ! I am less concerned about price-gauging since food will always be in demand so it will cost; however as long as manufacturers keep getting away with adding junk to our good food, I will rightfully complain and loudly eventually seeing a more natural list of ingredients on things I normally purchase Have a wonderful Holiday simplyme

For me, the best store would have to be Meijer, although it is a little farther away from my house than Kroger. Meijer has a better selection of pet foods, not only for my cats, but also for my outdoor/wildlife animal friends, and of course for my 2 Oscar fish. But it's still kind of a pain to drive out of my way to get there, when Kroger is literally 2 minutes away from my house. Both stores have great deals, esp. when you see that "price drop" sign on certain items. The key is to make friends with the stock workers. They can show you the best deals, and some will even go out of their way to order more of an item if you ask them nicely enough. Don't let them fool you when they say they're not in charge of ordering things, they can always go to the ordering staff and make a request for you, if you ask them nicely enough. When in doubt, flirt with them a little. They'll do it. Also, if you can make friends with some managers, they will let you get away with things that other shoppers aren't allowed to do. Example: I know a manager at Meijer, and he allows me to steal free ice from the store whenever I want. They have a soda machine, but all I really care about is the ice. So whenever I want a big cup of ice, I just go ahead, fill up the cup, and walk out of the store once I'm finished shopping. He told me that if I ever get into any trouble when exiting the store, or if the alarms go off, or I get arrested for stealing ice all I have to do is say ----- ----- said I was allowed to do it, and he's a manager. (I didn't use his name to protect his identity.) So those are the 2 best stores IMO, and yep, I see improvements in both of them. I don't care too much for Walmart. Something depressing about that place.
@m_audrey6788 They have this lane for senior citizen and we go there. We have two batch of groceries. The cashier didn't let us finish all our groceries she call a senior citizen to be first in the line. We have to wait very long and what's more annoying those strangers who go first with us took our groceries. I thought we will lost our groceries that day. They return it to us when the recognize it's not their groceries

@m_audrey6788 It is Independent Grocers Alliance. It is a U.S. brand of grocery stores that operates in more than 30 countries. Unlike the chain store business model, IGA operates as a franchise through stores that are owned separately from the brand.
