Ames is consistently rated as a Top City, too. Austin, never been there.

Thanks for taking your sibling "rivalries" off the board. Since we didn't know the relationship, we thought you were picking on US,,,and we snooty Ames folk don't take kindly to that....... ...... Besides, it makes our people look as petty as our fair city-to-the-east's Nevada board. ... Now that we understand, maybe we'll be more tolerant of it.

....

Anyway, Fareway is the best.

The reason Fareway was packed is because it is the best place to shop !! :-)

I agree with that to an extent, there are a lot of items they don't carry

Default The Lone Star State

I will be point blank about this. What happens in Texas stays in Texas. I know it can be overwhelming to someone not from Texas currently living there. I was born in Nacogdoches. Please, the current president (born in Connecticut) used Texas to get to the top. Every Texan I know is mad about this, and we still do not talk about it. Leave our loner state alone. You are from Iowa, support Iowa. I have been here quite awhile(Iowa), and its worth everything and a bag of chips. But I am still a Texan, who loves snow, surf, and nice people who choose to be nice, but don't have to be. For all others who are sick of hearing about Texas, there are a lot of secrets buried down there. Iowa is fortunate for harsh winters, its what seals off migration into a state from other states, not countries though.

Fareway is cram-packed full of low quality, inexpensive food that is super-bad for you.

The next time you're in there, take a good look at the shoppers, and you will notice that they are largely obese, haggard, ill-looking, or incapacitated.

There's a reason for that.

P.S.--I buy my dog food at Fareway.

Dog food = lean ground beef, whole chickens, brown rice, mixed vegetables, and beef marrow bones for a treat.

incapacitated? It sounds like Dawn of the Dead store...which I really know better...speaking of which, I saw !Santa-Woman-Man-Braveheart! walking in there, and that doesn't fit the few descriptions you listed of evvveryone.

Does anyone know if one store might hire employees to go get hired at another store, just to be mean?

You can find the same people and foodstuffs at Cub and Hy-Vee, for 25% more.
