They have friendly service....Strange checkout set-up but that doesn't change my mind about "loving" the store. I see the sign even when we drive by on the highway and say "I just love that store"....Now my husband will finish the sentence for me before I can or just say it for me....I must be annoying....ha! The selection and sales that they have keep up with the BIG stores. I "always" find an exceptional buy when I go. From meat to ethnic choices. The store is clean and produce seems to always be fresh. I don't think they leave anything overlooked when it comes to "what a store should offer". There used to be a special cut of meat in the meat section for steak...Can't remember what the butcher labeled it but it was AWESOME....I have not seen it for a long while but I sure check when I go in. It was at a reasonable price and TENDER! We even buy side beef from a farmer and I still purchased the meat. Can't resist a good thing. I have NEVER had a bad experience in that store.. Now "that's" saying something this day and age...When trying to please your customers doesn't seem to be a high priority. :) I just love that store!
Bad area, good employees. I once saw a sweet clerk walking around a blind women. Arm and arm, helping with a worn shopping list. Filling the basket as they strolled. The little old lady smiled on, arm and arm. A man told me she was a regular customer:) I've been harassed out side, barked out, sworn on for saying nothing to rif-raff. For ignoring ignorance? But I always felt safe stepping n those doors! No better welcome, no matter the day. Everyone smiled there. Don't let those smiles fade to frowns in a city so sad! We need more people like the Apple Market Staff, more smiles! what ever happened to consideration? Justification? Empowerment and motivation? Core values adopted by Candy, Teresa, Linda, My Leaky:) Skip, John, Benny:), my favorite little Mexican and my husband. When one door closes another one opens! May you have a hall of open ones!
