I loved Publex and when we lived in CA Safeway was the place to go. The one I went to even had a Starbucks and the prices were great just like Publix.

Publix is one of the very few things I'll miss when we move there, but what a tiny price to pay for getting the heck out of Florida. I've traveled a good amount of states, and I've never visited any grocery store that matches Publix.

Ingles depends on the location . . . the one on Beaverdam Rd., for example, is pretty decent. The one in my hood, on the other hand . . . not so much.

But Winn Dixie has to be the all time worst.

Greenlife is excellent, and of course the Grove Corner Market.

Instead of being a transplant changing what makes North Carolina the state it is shop what is available like the numerous farmer markets. Remember without jobs or by not buying local you are killing the hand that feeds you and the long term affect is someone loosing their home, farmland, and job.
