It was before my time but back in the day growing up in CC my family always referred to Albertson's as Skagg's?? Anyways, don't feel so bad about not having any other choices. I live in Katy now and within 5 miles of my house I have a Randall's, Kroger's, Brookshire Bros. & a Super Wally. I still drive the extra few miles to HEB every trip. Randall's has great meat but HEB has good meat and beats Randall's prices by a landslide. Kroger's prices are a little more than HEB but their meat is mediocre and best and their produce is horrible. Brookshire Bros. well they are just small and have a limited selection. Walmart is cheap but really have no desire for their prepackaged meat.

It was called Skaggs/Albertsons. It was where the Conn's is today (Everhart & SPID).

Thanks for the insights, gang : ) I'm happy enough with HEB; I like the reset they're completing at the Saratoga store with the wider aisles, the customer service is responsive, the quality and prices are good (except meat is EXPENSIVE!), and I really like the fact that they support important institutions in the community with generous donations.

I just have always been a bargain shopper when I've lived other places--working my coupons, popping into competing stores to pick up their loss leaders, etc--and I kind of miss it! But overall HEB seems to have fair prices and I don't have much trouble staying within my grocery budget ($125 a week for a family of 5), so I'm satisfied, I guess.

I'll have to check out Moody's for meat; I haven't heard of them. I've also had people recommend the meat market on Staples in that little King's Place strip mall; I haven't been in there but I've heard it's a good place to buy, like, half a cow.

Thanks again for your replies!

I like the tables HEB will set out sometimes with their "clearance" stuff on them. Often times, I find products I normally use on a regular basis on those tables, and get a great deal on them. In Portland, they used to have stands set up near the food court area with the deals on them, but I have noticed as of late that they have moved them closer to the photo area, and now just have them on tables and in grocery carts.
