I'm delighted Yoke's moved into our part of south Kennewick. Sure, it probably costs a bit more, but if I was all about the lowest price I'd go all the way to Winco or Walmart. I like having a quality grocery close to me. If that means paying a bit more, okay.

^Comments like this are encouraging to me. It gives me hope that maybe the Tri-Cities isn't just an area full of Wal-Mart shoppers, willing to eat low-quality, fattening foods just to save a buck.

Yoke's is my fav and even though in Pasco we have Wal-Mart right across the street at cheaper prices, I value quality, and I value what Yoke's gives back to the community. Plus I can find things at Yokes that I can't get anywhere else, to make my delicious ethnic dishes!

As I've said before, they will keep my business.

I think Yoke's does most things right, including community stuff. They understand that people expect a newcomer business to immerse itself in such things. I've been to the west Pasco one as well. One other thing I like about Yokes is that they are nearly identically set up. If you ever come to the south Kennewick one, you already know your way around.

And it does at least offer a fighting chance of being able to make ethnic food from the ingredients. At the holidays, we try a different cuisine every year. Most of the time we can get the shopping done at Yoke's.

Unfortunately, the majority in this area might as well set their ringtones to 'Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers!' But I refuse. The only thing I bought at Wal-Mart was something I knew I was going to return. It felt like walking through a burn ward.

I find Yoke's to be priced just like Safeway and Albertsons. Just depends on what's on sale and your eating habits. I love Yoke's for the produce, the beer selection and the HUGE selection and variety of cheeses. All my boxed, dry foods and canned what-not I just hit up Wal-Mart or Albertsons if they're on sale.

I love Yoke's

I do the vast majority of my shopping at WinCo but do like to hit Yoke's every so often.

As said, their produce and most EXCELLENT cheese selection rock. I'll add meat quality to that list as well and have found some good deals there in the past.
