Northern and Central California Grocery Store Deals Thread
Thank you to missusg and mcube for starting up threads for the individual stores for Northern California.
Due to how the timestamp works - it is with apologies to mcube (who started the Lucky thread) that your post is now #141 -- When a thread is merged the posts go in timestamp order.
Please note that there is a 30 day rule for reps -- so any post greater than 30 days old cannot be repped.
This message to remain for the next 24 hours so that our NoCal users can get used to this.
