impoverished savvy consumer I try and make my dollars spread the furthest so I tend to shop at different stores. Local management aside, I tend to like the design and offerings of Freshco. In particular I find a nice choice of fresh fruits and veggies; a good selection of bread products, and some pretty good deals if you search. In particular I find more International offerings than some stores. Less than perfect is overall selection and access to the store. Getting through the cash has been pretty smooth as our store never seems that busy. They do charge for bags.
Again, lower priced produce, and lots of sale items. I find not as large a selection of fresh meat & seafood; but lots of discounted prices for pre-packaged frozen. Great access and pretty good service in Cornwall. They do charge for bags.
Best place in the city to purchase Lamb.
Has some of the most offerings of Organic food and carries some higher end products.
Again, may be a casualty of too many grocers, especially when the 800 pound gorilla that will be Walmart opens. They charge for bags.
They also have a wine store in the building which is almost never a bad thing except that they only offer a narrow range of product. Service can be slow. They charge for bags.
When I entertain it’s usually on my list of places to shop.
One of my fave restaurateurs locally would buy his produce there and we’d have great chats in the aisles.
The lay out is friendly and the samples are smart when available. They DO NOT charge for bags.
Cornwall being a border town we have some interesting options just over the mini bridge in Massena NY. Hannaford’s, Price Chopper, BJ’s, Tony Lakroix’s fave place to shop for cheese, (and mine too!) Aldi’s, and of course Walmart. None of the US stores or Wal-Mart charge for bags.
So dear viewers of CFN. Which is your favorite Grocery store? You only get to pick one!
