Every grocery chain normally has sales around the Holidays. Personally, I would skip Food 4 Less - reminds me of a warehouse, and Wal-Mart ....... well, I don't shop there for anything. I'd choose Stater Bros.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Food 4 less & walmart have better prices then stater bros.Food 4 less is roomy & big.I doubt it very much if ill be shopping at crater bros unless i see something i like thats on sale.It cost me 1 gal of gas roundtrip to drive to f4l & walmart.Thats about 2 bucks (4 now).Ill save much more overall plus ffl & walmart has more food items & walmart is your one stop store.I go to the one in Banning,ca.Its a super walmart.Stater bros pretty much controls this area (yucaipa,calimesa) so i gotta drive 10 miles to get better deals.Its well worth it.I just regret spending 30 bucks at staters when i could of gotten the same items & a bigger turkey for around $16.00-$18.00. It all comes down to personel choice.I hate vons,albertsons,ralphs & fresh n easy.Can you say....rippoff!

I agree. Everybody that has a little bit of money and/or a job wants to gouge people that are less fortunate. Look around. If you do not have a home, job and vehicle, you will continue to be pushed down by our government and your neighbors among many others-utility companies, etc. The list goes on. But, stater bros., starting where they did, are pricing foods out of our buying comfort zone. I don't know how families are surviving these days, especially with any children. Neighbors and friends used to be caring and helpful, now all they care about is getting to your pocketbook in one way or another. It is all about money! To hell with love and family and friends and neighborhoods. Dog eat dog!

I shop at whatever store has the best produce! And depending on where you live, that can vary... Right now, where I live it's Stater Brothers, but in my old hometown, it was Major Market, and in Riverside it was Ralph's.

Anything that comes in a box or bottle is exactly the same no matter where you buy it - it may be a few cents more or less - but it's still the exact same product. But produce? That can very really wildly in quality - and the higher quality, the better the taste, which means I'll eat more veggies and fruit - and end up healthier!

The first step in wise grocery shopping is read the store flyers that come in your mailbox or daily newspaper and try not to purchase anything unless it is on sale, discounted, or on some kind of a deal. Living in a metro area as I do usually means that there are several store choices close by so that fuel costs are not a big factor. Am generalizing, but in my experience, Food-4-Less has the lowest overall prices, Staters and Albertson in the middle with occasional good buys, and Vons, and especially Ralphs, highest of all. For lowest produce prices, the best choices, hands down, are the ethnic markets, the Mexican stores such as El Super, with prices often one third of what Ralphs charges. Even lower on sales days, Wednesday for produce at El Super, where you might find bananas for 25 cents or roma tomatos for 33 cents a pound. At F4L and ES you bag your own groceries, which lowers costs, which is fine with me, no problem, but some shoppers may not care to do this.

Steel, you've started a lot of threads about Stater Bros. Just curious as to why this chain seems to bother you so much.
