    thesherman96-I think the HT in Fuquay on Main St. gets a truck in on Fridays and stocks Fri/Sat, because I have gone on Sat and found things they were out of earlier in the week. The Fuquay Kroger is about 3 mins from the HT and is usually well stocked, but not sure about today because of the mega event.

    @ thesherman96 there is a Kroger not far from the HT in downtown Fuquay (NOT the Kings Grant HT @ 401 & 1010). I am not sure when the stores will stock, but that should save you a few miles from going to the Kroger in Garner.

    Stocking question.....we plan on doing our shopping tomorrow at HT in Fuquay (either one) and Kroger in Garner. Are they usually stocked on Saturday afternoons? We live at least 45 minutes away and would hate to drive that far to only use 4-5 coupons because everythng is out.

    I know the weekend isn't the best time to shop. My plan is to have one day each week scheduled for our shopping as soon as the little one starts kindergarten in Sept. Thank you ladies for all your help and tips!!! =)

    Has anyone had problems with Target limiting the number of the same item you can purchase? I went to the Target in Knightdale, NC today and an item had been marked down not one, but three times. I had 4 buy 2 get $1 off coupons and wanted to purchase 8. There was still at least 10 of the same item on clearance on the shelf. The cashier, assistant manager, and manager all said there is a 5 limit policy so other customers are allowed to purchase the item. I called corporate (before leaving the store) and they said there was no such policy. The assistant manager then pointed to a sign behind the customer service desk to the right, not visible at all. The sign said they have a right to limit the quantity, etc. I have never had this experience at a Target before. Plus, the bigger issue I have is the item is on clearance and has been marked down three times. Also, when I called corporate, I was told all they could do is document my complaint and was told no one would be calling me back.

    Faye, I happened to be reading Walmart's coupon policy and they accept competitors' coupons now. Can you update your coupon policies page?


    Competitors' coupons
    A specific item for a specified price, for example, $2.99
    Buy one, get one free (BOGO) coupons for items with a specified price
    Have a valid expiration date
    Are acceptable in black and white

    Checkout coupons ("Catalinas")
    Printed at our competitors' registers for dollar/cents off on a specific item
    Must have "Manufacturer Coupon" with specific item requirements printed on them Must have a valid remit address for the manufacturer Must have a valid expiration date Must have a scannable bar code Are acceptable in black and white May not be duplicated

    HT has Motts applesauce snack n' go pouches (4 pack box) 2/$4. There is a coupon on for $1/1 making them a $1 per box. They are great for diaper bags and picky toddlers who don't want to eat. :)

  • WorkinMom Aug 24, 2012 very first ever brag post...spent $12 at Kroger for 6 boxes of Kleenex, 6 liquid hand soaps, 6 boxes of Ziploc bags, 2 jars of spaghetti sauce. $5 off every 10 items + Q matchups rocks! Not a world record but not to shabby for a rookie!

    Oh, sorry you said Kroger...not bad!

  • bsmith4 Aug 24, 2012

    I believe the HT in FV comes in on Friday afternoon. I have seen them stocking many times on Saturdays.
