yeah - Wal-Mart meat is definitely suspicious too!

You know who has a surprisingly robust meat department? Wayfields.

I agree wholeheartedly about Wayfield's nice meat department. Really I have found this to be the case with the store as a whole. All Wayfield's I have ever gone to have been clean and pleasant (think like a hometown version of Publix). This is true of the one in East Atlanta when I worked near there, the Downtown College Park branch, and even their newer ones in Jonesboro and near River's Edge Plantation on the Clayton/ Fayette border. My bone of contention with then (and Kroger, too for that matter) is that they do not double coupons and my wife is very frugal with our grocery money. She really enjoys the BOGO's at Publix and Ingle's with accompanying coupons!

I have found Kroger to be penny for penny cheaper than Publix, though - especially with the card. I just won't buy meat or dairy from them.

We don't have a Wayfield's near us but Food Depot is clean and reasonably priced. We also have that Cobb Int'l mkt on Spring Rd in Smyrna but their meat and fish dept smells and looks suspect so we don't buy there. However, they have great appeal to the ethnic markets fo there you go.

Yeah - I've been to Cobb Int'l market. Same deal with Super H too. I buy certain cuts at the Asian markets but I don't usually buy fish there.

If they do it right this could be a nice addition to Cumberland.

Kroger shopping experience in general is better to me. Nice wide aisles, comparable selections like Publix and just a better feel with the polished concrete floors, black signage, etc... I do agree that Kroger meat is not as fresh as Publix. Packaged chicken I will buy at Kroger. Depending on the meal, I'll most likely shop at Publix more so for convenience, but depending on the Kroger store and location you can find some good wild caught seafood. Still have to try Wholefoods, and I hear Sprouts Is great for produce.

Sprouts is terrific. Almost a less expensive Whole Foods. And the meat department is nice, too. They focus on organic products which seem to cost a little bit more than non-organics.

Yep, Sprouts has a great meat department. Great choices of lamb, chicken and beef. I love their various chicken sausage options as well.

I assume they would build it in the area next to the Sear's Auto place.

Well, it's not the worst idea I have ever heard, but there is already a Costco at Cumberland Mall and there is a Kroger right down the street at Cobb and Paces Mill. I wish they'd try to develop something practical on the other side of 41 in or around the Galleria.
