I’m a member of Just Food Co-op and they’re my overall favorite. Great produce, great variety, great staff. It irritates me that in this blog-infested town, they don’t have a blog on their website and therefore they make it tough to link to anything new going on there. I like their monthly newsletter but you can’t link to individual items in a big PDF file. And not having a blog breeds website outdatedness. General Manager Stuart Reid left a few months ago and they’ve got new board info/members and a new General Manager but you’d never know it from their outdated Board page. And what about a staff page? I want to know these people!
When County Market/Petricka’s bailed for Hwy 3 and became Cub, I was determined to do my other grocery shopping at Econofoods, in part because of my downtown bias. I was impressed that they invested in revamping the building inside and out. It irritates me that their produce section is consistently lousy and too many of their employees are customer-unresponsive.
I’ve not shopped Cub Foods enough to have irritations yet but I’m sure I will, now that I’m doing less shopping at Econo.
