I do my main shopping (every Thursday when the sales start) at Butera, Meijer and sometimes Aldi...depending on who has the best prices and what is on sale. It's very rare that I don't go to Butera. Butera (to me) has the best bang for your buck! The only thing that I WON'T buy is chicken from the Elgin location (twice I had to return it because it was spoiled). You can always find a friendly employee should you need assistance.
This is a small grocery/market. Don't let its size fool you... It has everything you need. Just to name a few of the things they have: chips, cereal, milk, eggs, vegetables, canned foods, fresh Mexican bread, ice cream, frozen dinners, herbs, teas, sanitary products and much more... The owners are fabulous people, always have a smile on their face and super friendly! Try it!
Jewel used to be so much better. They have cut back on checkers, prices higher than most other stores, don't take care of their employees but I still like Jewel. They also don't have the promotions they did before they were bought. Oh, for the old days.
