I am very disappointed in the deli service. In the past, the service had been very good, but recently it has been terrible. Is it customary to give away free lunch meat to friends/relatives? I have seen this happen more than once where an employee (a dark hair, thin older guy with glasses) adds extra slices to the order after it has already been weighed. Are the rest of us paying for this with higher prices? One nice plus, though, is freshly sliced meat. The bakery offers a wonderful selection of delicious goods but there is no expiration date on them so freshness becomes a guessing game. Speaking of freshness, I have learned to check expiration dates on everything I buy there. I have gotten everything from cake mix to Faygo with past due dates. The only great perk Golden Dawn has is their awesome meat department. They have the best ground meat ever. The butchers are among the friendliest. If you shop on the weekends, prepare to be solicited on the way in or out by kids representing various youth organizations asking for donations. It seems that selling candy bars and various items to fund raise is a thing of the past. Now our youth are taught it is okay to beg for money from shoppers who barely have enough money to pay their grocery bill.
