Giant Food

Which is better? Giant or Safeway? Where can I shop with a mask on where people will be nice to me? Where has the best bananas? Where had the best oatmeal selection?

Does Giant have a good stock of fresh fish? Or maybe a selection of eels that I can buy? I hear Safeway does have some eels, but they are not fresh.

And how did these places get their names?? These things are so odd to me.

No, I don't think so. I think all of them are big and super thus the name.

Which one has the best eels? Or a selection of lamb or mutton or sheep milk?

Despite all the hate, Giant Food rules grocery in the DC Metro Area - nearly 20% of all grocery dollars are spent at Giant. Admittedly some of their stores suck, but you don't dominate such a ridiculously competitive market without doing something right.

Amazing to see how much grocery money is spent at convenience and drug stores. That's insane.

And this listing for some reason did not include independent international stores. I would be willing to bet Lotte Plaza (Asian/12 locations) and Megamart Supermarket (Latino/11 locations) might have made the bottom end of this list.

Compared to what it was , Izzy Cohen would be appalled, that said Giants seafood is a bit cheaper then Safeway's and has the best deals on shrimp which they steam and spice on the spot, Giants meat has gone down in quality and is not as good and more expensive then Wal Marts or Food Lion which there are only two of in Fairfax County I shop often at the one down on Rt 1 as I live nearby at Hagel Circle and find everything they have but seafood is as good or better then Giant or Safeway today but the sheer numbers of items in a Giant or especially a Safeway can be beat when you need some off the wall item as they stock the shelves much higher then Food Lions and the one I shop at has a high number of shoplifters which I suspect is the reason for the lower shelves. The higher end stores like Whole Foods are nice to visit and shop but you can spend way more money fast in them . I do stop at the one now and then at Fair lakes and get pizza and some odds and ends, they had a lot of things to go or eat there but due to Covid 19 its slimmer pickings everywhere , Giants salad bars were the very best I have ever seen ,one thing they do shine and Izzy would be proud of it today . That's one thing that draws me to Giant and I miss , Shoppers is near me as well and their meats and items are good except seafood but they are now not the discount store they once were and I fear they may close soon as the pharmacy's are closed

The first time I shopped at Giant I was VERY DISAPPOINTED.

The fruits and vegetables were about the same size as any other store.

Ever since Giant got rid of their live butchers and went to the pre-packed meats I have been having a decent time shopping at MegaMart (latino) and believe it or not, food star (the new one on route 7 in falls church/skyline that used to be a toys r us).

I know H mart and the other asian markets like lotte etc have butcher counters too- but they get rude with me, i find the latinos easier to work with when requesting certain cuts of meat they take the time to be sure that is what i wanted and will show me an example.

H mart ppl throw it at me like they are too good to be giving me meat and my money is no good there and ignore me and serve all the other asians first.

I been hitting food lines at churchs, mosques and food pantries.

When I was working, I bought food from where ever. How cavalier we are when we have income.

I tried working a grocery night crew but my wife is unable to do kid duty all day & night. To get cash to cover expenses, I spend a couple days a week on nearby corners with a beat up cardboard sign asking for money. I get cash but people also give me water and buy meals for me.

It is impossible for me to say oh yeah this store is the best. I would be happy to be able to buy food and pay for it at any store.

I hear that. My industry was destroyed and I’m out of work. Not because of the virus, but because of the government shutting things down. I have a great resume, but have to stay at home because the kids can’t go to school so I have to monitor them all day.

What the fuck are you talking about. The typical grocery store employee is working in a store a few miles from where he lives. If you are in a store filled with ghetto thug employees it is because you are living in or next to a ghetto. The Giant near me most of the employees are white. There are a couple with mental issues and several look like they came from another country, but they are white. The black employees look like the black kids from the area high school or their parents that we see on back to school night.

The Aldi nearby has mostly Hispanic employees. Trader Joes looks like white college grads who are working there until they can get "real jobs". Harris Teeter is a grab bag. Whole Foods it depends on the department. The Asian store is almost all Asians.

Lighten up with the mental issues comments. Giant has a program to hire a certain number of Handicapped (both physically and developmentally) individuals. Sure they may take longer to bag your groceries but it gets them out of their homes and associating with people they would probably not otherwise interact with. It builds their self confidence and hopefully leads them to become independant and productive citizens. At least they are trying...unlike some that just sit at home and expect a paycheck for the government who have zero reason for not working. And no, I am not a bleeding heart liberal, far from it.

Yeah.

I'm not against retards and perverts, I'm just saying that ungodly numbers of them are FFXU posters. Not a bad thing when you consider that if not for posting here, their focus in kidnapping and killing governors would probably be more of a priority.

Of course he does.

If you buy large amounts of meats, seafood and in store prepared items where you shop makes a big difference. The same is also true if you buy organic. Move past that and it comes down to cost, convenience and selection. That box of Kelloggs Frosted Flakes or Kraft cheese was made the same way with the same ingredients whether you buy it at an upscale grocery or some cut price operation. There are differences in store brands, but its unlikely the typical consumer could say what they are. With produce you can inspect it yourself, and you should wash it when you get home, so if you got crap produce its on you, not the store. If you want to shop at a grocery store that has wines from 92 vinyards and 14 different artisan breads, then by all means schlepp over to Wegmans. If you are OK with the choice of red or white box wines then Aldi will do fine.

Maybe there are a few Food Lions like that but most food lions are full of low rent white people shopping with ebt cards. I have to admit though Food Lion stores are quick and convenient when you just need a couple things like beer or dog food.

They sell some really good pork country ribs at food lion. I smoke them slow in my electric smoker and put on just a hint of sauce when they are about done. Apple wood seems to be the best but hickory can be good too.

Pork "country ribs" suck. They are a horrible cut of meat. The only thing they would be good for is feeding the dogs. Yuck.

I like to soak them in pickle juice for 12 to 18 hours before searing them on a hot grill to seal in the juices then move them to the oven at 275 degrees for about an hour covered in foil. They come out perfect.
