thanks for all the info --- I have a Costco here and love it though I have to be honest...you typically spend more money there than if you went elsewhere lol

I am going to write this all down...I just didn't want to go there and shop at the most pricey food mart for months before being told there are cheaper alternatives --- I will likely have to check them all out though

What about Shelby? I am pretty close to that county? Here, the more afflluent the community, the higher the prices, even if it's the same chain of store....is that the case there?

Ruh roh!

Papa Joe's and Westborn Market aren't exactly known as 'cheap'. Check them out for best quality, but not on an empty stomach or when you have nothing left to eat in the house.

Kroger's, Hollywood Market, and Aldi's have more reasonable prices.

My sister swears by Costco as the best prices in town.

Gordon's Food Service is also a good choice if you are looking for a cheaper version of Costco.

Shelby Township is packed with shopping in the South end- thanks to Hall Road (M-59), but less so in the Northern end (and Rochester Hills borders the northern end).

You'll find a lot of the same stores there - unless you are looking to go to the mall. However, there is an outlet mall in Auburn Hills. So, you may as well stay in RH.

Papa Joes and Ninos have great quality food. You pay a bit more for it, but it is worth it. Oh - and downtown Rochester Hills has a farmer's market every Saturday too.

But just a word of advice, if you are looking for speciality food - good steakhouse, sushi place, thai place - RH has it, but if you are looking for a restaurant like Applebees or TGIFridays, you have to go to Auburn Hills, Pontiac, Troy or Sterling Heights.

That's the only reason why we are disappointed with the area; however, it is still a great area to live in. We moved here a couple of months ago and we love it.

In rh? I'm thrilled that you like it though...I don't mind driving for food if the community is good.....I am a fitness pro (competitor and trainer) so eating out is less of an issue for me....for example, I will go to the farmers market for produce in the growing season and likley Popa Joes/Ninos for out of country fruits and veggies but then a costco or Gordon's for boxed/household items? We pretty much do that now. I also saw (and was tickled pink) that there is a Trader Joes there! I have heard so much about that store and can't wait to devour the aisles, sans kids and with a credit card

Thanks for all your advice! It will make shopping my first little while a little bit easier, and actually we are having to go down to have our visa's stamped in the next week or so .... perhaps I'll take the opp to visit some stores as the house is on it's way to being finished now.
