Thanks to Vons, I have actually decided grocery shopping can be a pleasant task, rather than a frenetic ordeal. The store is neat and organized, but what's most impressive is the staff. I was asked if I needed any help at least 4 times on my last visit, and this has consistently been their style, which is much appreciated. If you are uncertain about buying something in the produce section, they even offer a sample if you wish.The prices seem reasonable, the selection is fine, and they offer an organic line of foods as well as all the processed stuff. You can grab some hot food to go, a sandwich, soup, or Starbucks. It's all there, and I like that they encourage people to use re-useable shopping bags instead of plastic, which I do. (They sell 'em at the registers.) I like to go early on weekend mornings when it's mellower and not like a shopping cart version of Bumper Cars. The only reason I might not give Vons a full 5 stars is that the Vons card "savings" seem a bit meager, but I suppose it might be more impressive if I had a family the size of The Brady Bunch.
