DH was telling me that Loblaws isn't doing very well -he wouldn't know this from being in them :rolleyes: - which is a good thing as I don't want someone speeding me through the store. Do you like the Superstore, Extra Foods, Canadian Wholesale, Zehers (not sure about this one)? I prefer to shop Canadian and they have some good prices but when I compare the number of shoppers in the SS vs our Wal-Mart, Wal-Mart is busier - and it's not a very good store. I guess the things that annoy me about SS are having to pack my own groceries - (the guy in front of me is slow or I'm not going fast enough for the guy behind me & I can't watch the prices so have to go back when there is an error) , buy your grocery bags (not a real problem as I carry my cloth ones), to get a lower price you have to buy several of the same item and it can't even be a mix and match of the same brand, and there is never anyone to ask about a product. Oh - I really hate the self check out. There's always a problem and you have to wait while the clerk clears the till or finds the code. Their Joe clothes seem like great value and quite fashionable but I noticed today that no one was in there. The clerks were standing around.
I noticed in Vancouver - think it was an Extra or Wholesale - that they supplied the bags & did the packing. Guess the competition make the difference.
Anyone else have opinions why SS etc are doing that great? They better figure it out soon cause I just read that Wal-Mart plans to open up to 14 SuperCentres in Canada in 2007 and their goal is a total of 170.
