If I could give it negative stars I would. DO NOT go here. 1) the place is nasty looking and dirty with food sitting out on the counter (there was a half eaten chocolate in a box on one counter, next to the owner's oxygen machine and various other open containers of food around the store.) 2) The owner/operator is unscrupulous and rude beyond belief. I would not go back here for anything. I have never written an online review in my 40 years of life... this experience was SO BAD that I am writing my FIRST! The owner/ operator is one of the rudest individuals I have ever dealt with. I had never been here before today. I had a $50.00 gift certificate - from December - which he claims expired the week prior to my visit (six months from the date of issue). Not living near the business I had not had a chance to visit yet. I made my selections, which included cut salami which cannot be resold once cut, and the total was slightly less than $50.00 including tax. I told the owner that wasn't a problem and that we could just call it "square" - I didn't mind if the transaction was a few dollars in his favor... When I presented the gift certificate he told me "this has expired." I asked when, to which he replied " just last week." I asked if it was possible that he could make an exception. He replied simply "no, I won't." I replied well, "have a nice day" and began walking out of the shop. He yelled behind me "and never come back here!" of course, I have no intention to come back - in fact, I wouldn't have spent $1.00 of my own money in the place given the lack of cleanliness and the owner's rudeness. If you don't want to do business with unscrupulous people avoid this one!
Love this market! Very Clean and excellent customer service! The meat cuts are sharp, clean and taste fresh!
Don't listen to that other review. They obviously live on a remote island if they haven't noticed the price of food has increased everywhere. And St. Andrews Ole Timey does NOT have a website to update the prices, for some reason the link takes you to a different location. When compared to ANY supermarket in Columbia, Ole Timey is consistently cheaper, and always better quality because they don't use all the gas and preservatives the super markets used. They have a knowledgeable staff that can make recommendations and give you cooking instructions, try to get that from the people at the super market.
I remember when a business was interested in keeping its clientele. It is obviously not the case when, in under 6 months, there are TWO price increases on their so-called "specials". Might as well go back to giving my money to the grocery store and eliminate the second trip just for meat, since it is no longer a bargain. Also, how about updating the prices on the website to reflect every increase? That way first-timers can make an educated decision before walking in and having to spend an impromptu extra ten dollars than anticipated.
