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

For those in NorCal close to a Winco, I was just in ours in Yuba City and they had assorted Green Giant canned veggies for .33 as well as 12 double rolls (24) cottonelle toilet paper for $3.48. Some great deals.
Wow, those are nice! Too bad I'm still a bit far from YC to hop over and check it out!

I had a creepy experience in Raleys. I walked in, grabbed a basket and went over to the Lotto machine. This woman leans in while I'm trying to feed my dollar and ask if I'm going to play it. She's kind of strange, so I grabbed my money, told her to go for it and walked away. She follows me and asks why I hurt her mother. I asked what are you talking about?

She gets up in my face and says I threatened her mother. So I got mad and said who the f*** is your mother. Then she walks off and I go down the aisle and she apologizes and says that I'm not the one. She said that she was Julie and her mother was Lorraine somebody. So I said okay. I go down the next aisle and she gets up in my face with a big smile. I ignore her and keep walking. Then she follows me and accuses me of hurting her mother. Then she again says she sorry that I'm the wrong person. Then I hear her tell another customer that I hurt her mother.


At this point, I'm getting freaked and ask the cashier to get me help to carry my two items out. They call down the manager and apparently the woman has been hanging out in the store for a couple hours and had even been in the backroom screaming.


I left, so I don't know what happened. But why in the world had they let her hang out for a couple hours without doing something.


Maybe I've watched too many movies, but I wonder if she did something to her mother or something. Really weird.

Lucky/Savemart:
learned that 3 day ad items don't get rainchecks. They should really put that in the ad
I went to one store, which was OOS and they didn't know if it was all stores or just theirs with this policy. Called another & they told me it was company policy. So shop Fridays!

I was taken aback when I bought my yogurt. I managed to find 8 unexpired cartons-dated 1/17. There were about 2 doz. more dated 12-10-12. I pulled them off the shelf, told a clerk up front who didn't bat an eye or appear to tell anyone. vomit
I went to this Lucky b/c they seemed a little classier & cleaner, and I can use Qs in SCO w/o any intervention. Standing @ SCO isn't easy right now, and most Lucky I have to have each Q approved after it's scanned.
Last time OEP fat free refried beans didn't qualify for promo, this time there was a sign under them & they worked. I did SCO to be sure each item actually worked.

EEK!
yeah, somebody needed to be called. It's kind of touchy dealing with someone obviously mentally ill, but you deserved protection.

Yes, but supply is extremely limited.
This has to be one of the worst promos by Safeway.

Did you show the paper ad, or your j4U account to get the raincheck?

Neither. The cashier asked if I found everything I needed. I said I couldn't find any of the Ten soda. He asked if I could be back before Tuesday because they would be restocked. I said no and he said that they probably weren't supposed to do rainchecks but he pulled the pad out and started writing. I didn't ask for one but I sure as heck wouldn't turn it down.

yes, petaluma store had them before the promo started, i think around 12/29, near the refrigerated dairy Unsure in a 4-tier bin. .25/ea

is ltd supply, yet i think that has to do w/soda rep

the worst is when they never HAD product, as was the case w/the free jell-o mold

The Crutches report:
I found the motorized cart easy to use @ that SW, smooth controls & tight turns-don't know if it's representative of all SW versions
the one @ NH has more comfortable seat but controls are jerky

Crutches are a serious pain. My shoulders are killing me, and good foot's arch cramps in a hurry.
Getting thru RA & CVS not so good
since I was near doc & not near home, I ventured into "I don't care what it looks like" mode
CVS-in earlier trips, found a step stool & knelled on it every few feet to give my standing foot a rest. Could push cart ahead of me a few feet & catch up
In this case, no step stools. First I was seated in pharm, picked up chair next to me & carried it on cart.
Put it down to get someting on low shelf, and realized I couldn't load it back on cart. So I put my knee on it, put crutches in cart and drug it behind me. Pushed chair fwd with my good leg & it was so much less effort & pain than those crutches! Looked like a gimp parade, I'm sure

Get well soon MissusG! hug


Can anyone explain why there are so many people reading this thread?

How so? I don't see it. Confused

It's funny stuff the ridiculous "discounts" and all the discussion there... is that why people are reading that thread?

& that's why it's a deal bulb

amazon gc's are common 2nd & 3rd party rewards + they even have a $5 gc program

perhaps ask thread for specs

Ditto. The store manager said that they had gotten a shipment last week -- but they were 12--oz cans. He quickly offered a rain check, then took my ad and scribbled RAIN CHECK, quantity FOUR, and his signature. I asked him if that was how Safeway did its rain checks and he said there wouldn't be any problem, as every cashier knew the product wasn't around.
