Last night DLJ and I went to the new Haggen store near home. It’s about the same walk as it is to the Safeway, just the other direction, and it’s a much nicer store. Many more natural products, organic foods, better deli and fish counter, better bread, and my personal “is it a good store” meter item, braided string cheese. In three varieties. Oh yeah.
My complaint was that their bulk bin of grains, flour, salts, etc, was less than 1/5 the size of the candy bulk bins, which wrapped in a giant u shape like a movie theatre monstrosity. I already left feedback on their website about that. But overall, much better store, I will do some comparison price shopping, but that’s probably where I will go for my fish from now on, and meat, the rare times I get it. Hooray for a fabulous store moving in near my home, and within walking/biking distance!
Must get to work, it’s a busy day today.
