We do Fareway again, now that they finally accept credit cards! Friendly people who have been there for years,,and I like the service to the car. I hated Cub because of the personnel and rotting, bug-infested produce. Hy-Vee is a little high-priced but the variety is amazing.

I wouln't buy meat at Sam's Club. We used a one-day pass thingy to check things out, and the meat was cherry red in some parts, with brown where the dye had leaked onto the holder. The "juices" looked like Kool-aid. Ugh.

We split 1/2 hogs and cows with friends of ours and have the locker process it. It's nice to know it's a "local" animal of people you know, ya know?

Only three? There are at least 6 Super Wal-Marts I can think of within 10 miles of my house. And at least 4 Super Targets...

What kinds of meats do you buy at Fareway? I love their meat counter, but I just want to see what everybody else is buying.

We sure could use a costco in Ames. We drive all the way down there despite having a sam's club membership. It's really night and day, the difference between those two.

(Cue softwarejanitor posting about how he has 5 costco's where he lives, and everything there is free on Sundays.)

Nah, there is only one CostCo within 10 miles... and only about 3 Sam's Clubs. And everything isn't free on Sunday... but at least the sidewalks don't get rolled up.
