    I have been several times now since they have opened and I LOVE IT. I also love that it's right behind my house as well.

    Independent, family-owned, AND right behind my house? I'm so there! And congrats to Matt's son on recently graduating from STATE! :-)

    A very clean store, in-stock, good prices, friendly employees. But I couldn't find any pterodactyl snacks.

    Went there today (Tuesday). It was great! Beautiful store and the prices very pleasing! Got to meet the STARS of Lizard Lick Towing and that was great as well. Mr. Mac I tip my hat to you...job well done. Store manager and the associates very nice, very professional.

    Great job on your vlog (is that right?) Faye! I am really looking forward to taking a ride over to Carlie C's. Please keep posting their weekly deals -- it is always a huge help! :)

    Thanks for the feedback about the video and about your experiences with the store. Mac was an incredibly nice man as were all the associates. The atmosphere was so friendly and bright. And you have got to love brand new shopping carts! LOL

    I will continue to highlight their best weekly buys at this point, if you find it to be helpful.

    I went this past Sunday for the first time. The store was very bright and clean. As soon as I walked in I remembered how the old Winn Dixie's used to look. I was able to get a lot of good deals. I hadn't seen any flyers in the mail or newspaper, so I had gotten all the prices info from their website. Most of the items I looked at were competitively priced. There was one item, Oreo's that had been advertised as 2/$5, were not marked as such on the shelf. I picked up one package, thinking it might ring up at $2.50 at the register, but it didn't. I took it over to Customer Service and while it was not in their circular, she gave me the $2.50 price anyway. Remember I had seen it online and not in any circular or publication. The 2-liter Mt Dews were completely out as well. Was my only disappointment.
