Mod Edit: This will become the new Northern California Grocery Stores 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. Smilie

my store no go on egg white too...yes it's a grocery store FULL of eggs/whites, yet none for the sammies shake head

yet i was able to get fresh veggie toppings bulb
I realized after he made the burrito that I probably could have asked for some veggies in it, DOH! The whole experience made me not want to stop by SW for breakfast though. Took twenty minutes for it to get made, and pay for it. Sorry, going to stop by overpriced starbucks for their wraps because they take 4 minutes!

And to echo sac girl, THANK YOU All for being so kind and helpful, and taking time to share deals!! heart

I had no idea about the 4 minutes, and I arbitrarily picked "4 minutes" in my head as how long it SHOULD take!

Thanks for the Hormel heads up - I will look for that deal too. Or maybe I won't look. The j4U website is down for me right now, which happens wayyy too often!

I ordered the one thing at TArget that I really wanted, and got free shipping since I have the red card. Yay!

I see that Lowe's has the option to order most everything right now, and ship to store. Bummer is that I wanted to get the gift cards from Rite Aid first and then go over to Lowe's but wonder if they will run out of items in store? Or, can we go get the GC's, go back home, and order all of the sale items, I wonder? (tomorrow, obviously)

Another 10/30 Kohl's peelie in the newspaper, also included the 25% CVS Q in the newspaper as well.

Wasn't able to get on the Kohl's appliance deal (crock pot was sold out online)...hoping there will be some at the store left!

Home delivery. I actually got (2) 10/30 Kohls. One peelie on the front page of the Bee, and one on the front page of the Kohl's ad! Yay! I almost missed it too.

If you didn't get the 15% mailer, there's a printable one [akamai.net] in the kohl's thread which will save you even more!!!

So, how was Kohls last year (for those who went at 12am)? Some one told me that it took them 2 hours or so to just check out? Does it get that crazy? I really want to get the crock pot/deep fryer and grab maybe a few clothing items. Was hoping to get in and out as quickly as possible *IF* the stores even still has the crock pot. But, I'm not gonna wait in line for 2 hrs to save a few bucks.

well, crud, I'm awake due ot being up most of last night & having to leave early, then fell asleep evening.
so I guess I drag my butt to Target, wich is next to Annas

If anone's travels takes them around San Ramon, the 24hr CVS (next to SW) had a bunch of stuff yesterday. I had already done most of the 11/18 ad freebies but was able to use 10/50. Even found cheap Lumene!
It's not far from 580/680 interchange, if youre travelling.
