Went in the store for the first time since it opened. The couple owners were extra nice, very helpful. Down to earth owners....Love their humble service and attitude. Went to just check out the store but came out spending way more then I expected to spend at that store! I think some Indian stores here in Orlando (And elsewhere for that matter) should take example of these owners. Humble, Great customer service, Great prices, No hassle straight forward with smiling face! I went to other Indian stores today and all I got was attitude!! like "You want that size? Check in the rack for yourself" OR I entered the store and left the store with the owners sitting behind the counter, not even a peep of "hello" or "thank you". If you have not tried India Emporium then please do so...They have all the Indian Groceries, Sarees, Suits, Costume Jewelery...and great prices too!! Check it out!! What do you have to loose? I definitely recommend the store!! May not have as much of the variety but let's support and encourage good business ethics and let the owners prosper and expand so we can get a better Indian stores in Orlando.
Most items I buy are still BEFORE their best by dates depending on item. Prices are 20% to 90% off regular store cost. They do clear shelves to get the really old stuff off. Food is sorted like grocery store with salad dressings, coffee, pasta, canned, and spices together so not a warehouse which puts stuff wherever shelf space is open. There are produce, refrigerated, and frozen sections also. Example on prices: Gluten-free pasta (reg $7) 1.50 / KerryGold Butter 17 oz ($7) 4.98 / Maple syrup 32 oz ($13) 4 / Applegate Bacon ($11) 5 / Heinz Cocktail Sauce ($4) 0.80 yup under a dollar/ and got fresh Cherries for $1 per pound. Prices are on each item based on what Sacks had to pay for them. So you could find the same item with two different prices. Daily specials are written outside and on the wall as you enter, so read these for deep discounts. Everything you would find in a full price grocery store may be on the shelfs.
I went to this site for oil change / tire rotation before my holiday trip in Dec 09. The service was professional, and the staff was helpful. I explained I was taking a trip and wanted to make sure car was ready. I was advised to get a new set of wiper blades and nothing else. I was over sold services I did not need or want. Timing was excellent, and my car was ready when promised. I highly recommend this center for no-nonsense good quality service it’s been 2 months and I'm still pleased with my service and planning on returning. As a professional woman I often feel patronized in service centers and I was NOT treaded that way here, at all. Actually, a lady assisted me. Thanks for allowing me to get what I paid for, with customer service I enjoyed
