I routinely visit the Bi-Lo in Coronanca that used to be a Piggly Wiggly since it is close to work, and it is closer to our house than the new Walmart in Greenwood for quick trips. However if we have a trip into Greenwood itself planned, we will go to the Publix there, especially if there's meat for smoking involved.

I once drank some milk that had a sour taste. It tasted as if someone had added mustard to the milk.

I asked if someone added mustard to the milk, and my grandmother politely informed me that I was drinking buttermilk.

I don't shop Bi-lo much, but being a couple doors down from work I stopped at the TR store. Only needed a few things. Went to the produce dept., and on the way saw the deli had butter ball turkey for 3.99 a pound. Having bought rotten deli meat there before, I asked to cut a slice and let me smell it. It was fine, so I told the girl I will take a pound thin sliced. Told here I was going to the produce section to get some squash and would be right back. Looked at the squash, and they had a mixture of Zucchini and yellow already sliced for like 2.50 a package. I normally buy whole but the package looked beautiful. Bought them. Went to get some Dole orange, peach, mango juice and the newest one I could fine had a sell by date of Nov. 23. Some had Nov. 18. Passed on that. Went to get a dozen Eggland's best eggs, huge display of them, all were a month past sell by date. Passed. Went back to the deli and the girl has my Turkey on the scale and say's I went a little over, do you want me to take some off. It was 2.8 pounds!. I said yes take about 2/3'rds off. Got home to cook my squash, opened the package and guess what? They put a fresh layer of slices over the rotten gelled pieces underneath! Being from Florida I was aware of Winn-Dixies swamp cow meat and dirty stores, but if Bi-Lo can not figure out their problem with quality and service like I posted they are gone.

So you, like others, have assumed that ALL BiLo stores are like that, based on one experience?

So should we blame another corporation for this, or is all on Southeast grocers? After all they are the management.

Not putting blame on anyone, just asked a question. Do you honestly believe, that because you had one bad experience in one BiLo, that ALL of them have bad fruit and eggs?

I shop at Bi-Lo. I have never had "bad eggs" nor have I found expired milk on the shelves.

The people in the meat department are always pleasant, and their beef is cut within the store (unlike Walmart and Target that cut their beef off-site, and inject the packages with carbon monoxide to keep it looking red!).

I'm not sure if the gas perks conversion to the Plenti card is an advantage or disadvantage, but for me, I'll keep shopping at Bi-Lo.

I've always had good experience at the Bi-Lo stores in Simpsonville, especially the Hwy 14 store.

Less so at the Fountain Inn location.

Has a lot to do with local store management.
