Last week I was in Wal Mart buying groceries and the isles were filled with workers...Ok, nothing wrong with that. I thought they were just rearranging as they were stocking shelves. They usually put the store brand stuff at eye level and move the name brands to the lower shelves....but that was not the case! They have removed almost all brands and are forcing one to buy the Wal Mart brand of "Everything". Food and nonfood items....I got the last bottle of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, to be replaced with some sort of "thick worcestershire" Don't think so!
Today I went in our local grocery store for a few items and the same thing was happening. All brands removed and only Best Choice brand on shelves. I bought their vinegar, I mean vinegar is vinegar, but I want my French's Mustard, my Heinz Ketchup and even my Hunts Diced Tomatoes. I think store brands are great if you choose to buy them but taking my choice away from me makes me furious.. The loss of my business won't hurt them I am sure but I will shop where I have a choice from now on! I realize that many items are made in the same factory and put in different brand boxes but that is not my point!!! I'll be willing to bet that they charge the higher price we were paying for the brands, for the store brand now!
Wow I am glad I got that off my chest! ha
Have a good evening!!! We are having floods of rain here!
