Large-scale buying—for us—is excessive.
Bulk buying for us just isn't that bulky.
Conversely, supermarket prices for a thimble full are outrageous.
I had been relying on Smart and Final (OK prices), Fresh and East (excellent quality and reasonable prices), and Albertson’s (excellent quality and HIGH prices).
People told me to go to WinCo Foods, but yet again, WinCo foods was not on my way to anything.
I have liked what I have seen—mostly—given that meat and produce is a B to Albertson’s A+. All of WinCo Foods' meat is OK for a family, but too much bulk for me. Most of the produce is quite good and the price differential was not good enough to switch.
Too bad, really.
They INCREASED prices in a stunning way.
Their superior produce and meat is not enough of a draw to get me to swallow their ridiculous new pricing.
Zucchini in boxes that do not get adequate refrigeration? Really?
I cook, so I expect the freshest ingredients in my food. I'll survive just fine at WinCo Foods.
Where WinCo Foods shines is in their bulk purchasing department. There you can buy as little or as much as you want and THAT works for me.
Because WinCo Foods' prices on EVERYTHING is advantageous, I am able to be a well-stocked survivalist/prepper without breaking the bank.
I am happy that my daughter is safe and will have food in a crisis.
Not only is their bulk foods section AFFORDABLE and has selections that are from pedestrian to gourmet, all at sane prices.
