Why bother with specials when your newspaper will not even deliver to us and as for coupons I have never seen any in the store so I rarely go there

frustrated - why?
commented on Feb 14 2014 2:36PM
every week "object moved to here" which is a dead end ? why even have a site if the flyer cannot be viewed? this has been this way for over a year , probably would boost your sales to fix this error...

commented on Feb 4 2013 7:36AM
Hey guy's. It is my belief that if you want "deals",we must be willing to do more of the leg work ourselves. (looking for Thurs flyer, perhaps understaffed stores,) Remember, you get what you pay for. Service costs $$$. The discount stores are not able to offer the service that we have known in the past. Trust me, I own a successful Privetly owned Travel Agency in Lambeth On. Want service? Go to Loblaws, or better still, one of the nice markets in your area. For the record, both Freshco stores I have been to in London & St. Thomas are both really great.

I shop at Freshco or used to. I found the layout of the store to be very consumer unfriendly, the employees are not helpful, sullen cashiers. I know that store management varies and we have to keep an open mind, but there should be a satndard affiliated with the Feshco name!

I can not believe half of the comments made here. I find our store in Espanola is very clean and has an excellent selection of fresh produce/meat. And while you can't blame the company people manage them in there own way. I find in Espanola are managers and owners are very respectful on how thing should be to make the customers feel Extremely Satisfied. I hope everyone keeps an "open" mind when it comes to freshco.

Harb Pruthi - Cheating
commented on Feb 2 2012 6:31AM
On Feb 1, 2012 I bought some `fresh blue Cod fillets’ along with some other items of grocery. On page A5 [right bottom column] of the flyer valid from Jan 27 to Feb 2, the price indicated is $4.99/lb or $11.00/kg but I was charged $15.38/kg.
Not only that, I’m sure it was not fresh fish; it was frozen fish which had been partly thawed. That is why it was full of water. By the time I reached home it had thawed further and when I took it out of the bag to place it in the fridge, a lot of water/liquid had spilled out of it and I had to wipe my kitchen floor.
As the bag had a hole, a lot of water had leaked in the fridge which too needed to be cleaned. When I cooked it, too much liquid came out of it in the frying pan. It never happens with fresh fish. This is sheer cheating and a very unethical business practice. If this trend will continue you are likely to loose many more customers and your Fresh Co will be called Cheat Co.

Been to quite a bit of Freshcos' and the worst by far was the one at Bathurst and Steeles. I was sent to the assistant store manger, who kind of resembles the store owner except he is chubbier. Worst person I have ever dealt with. He was rude and arrogant regarding the issue and did not care whatsoever. The employees look very unhappy and I cannot believe that he is in the position that he is in. How can he qualify to be a manager, Sobeys?

Robin - FreshCo at Dundas and Parliament - STAY AWAY
commented on Oct 12 2011 10:41AM
I was excited when I heard that a new Supermarket was opening up in the Cabbagetown area. Freshco has to be the worst option. The store appears nice and clean but the staff are very unhelpful and many very unfriendly. Also for being called "freshco" you would think that the products would be fresh. I have came home with so many products off code. The selection is very poor and they are often out of items when needed. The manager at this store is failing at his job miserably!!!!!!!!!!!! I have moved on to shop at the new No Frills on Front street. It is amazing!!!!!!!!

Lack of staff at Freshco (Parliament and dundas) makes shopping a big hassle because no one is ever seen around especially in the meat dept., is there a manager for the Meat dept. that actually wants to provide good service

sandra brown - Service sucks
commented on Sep 27 2011 1:26PM
I am a regular shopper at Freshco (Parliament and Dundas)The service has gone down a lot since their opening, lack of cashiers,very long line ups from time to time,there is hardly anyone to help customers like me in the meat dept. as the person in charge is never around.I have asked for helped but looks like the manager is never on the floor to help customers like us.

I'll agree with your statement that it can be a pain for people to find thier coupons if in fact they haven't a clue where to start but once they have it all figured out it's a piece of cake.Trading & searching for coupons is kinda fun and I don't find it to be a problem for me at all and doing it this way allows you to get the coupons you will use. After a few short months I have well over a thousand dollars worth of coupons for a few unused postage stamps so it well worth the effort and I will use everyone of my coupons.I also have friends and family who save all thier smartsource and redplum inserts for me which works out well.Coupons are quite easy to come by if one knows how to go about collecting them they would have thousands of dollars worth of coupons and they would be laughing all the way to the bank.Lets face it,coupons are money so who in thier right mind would pass them up.I've taken the time to show quite a few people how to go about couponing so thier out of pocket is pretty much nil and it's working well for them.It's all about sharing the wealth :-) We all know how expensive Royale TP is, it can run between $9.99 and $12.99 but when a good sale comes on and you have a $1.00 off coupie you can get 24 or 36 rolls for $2.99
I'll defend the use of coupons until the day I die and never will I pay over a $1.00 for a box of cereal again and no way will I pay $12.00 for TP, thats just nuts. :-)

You have illustrated my point exactly about coupons not being freely given out to everyone like they once were.

"I order mine online..."
"Trade with other mail"

These are all limbos you are forced to go through. I remember delivering papers many many years ago, and they would come with coupon inserts containing ~200-300 dollars in coupons.

commented on May 5 2011 11:03AM
As for finding coupons, they are very easy to come by these days. I order mine on line for free and also trade with other couponers which are sent snail mail...also the smartsource and redplum issues that come out are handy.In just over a month I have over 1,000 coupons which I put to good use.There are quite a few websites that people can sign up too and recieve coupies by mail and also if people write to the companies they usually mail them to you,in fact I've recieved quite a few by just writing the company and requesting them. No one has to pay retail for products but I also don't think people should abuse this by signing up under different accounts just to recieve more of them.As for extreme couponers, well thats a whole other story that I won't get into but will say that some people go over board and unless they are planning to donate most of the items they do get they should seriously ask themselves what is the point in hoarding 200 boxes of pasta etc.Lets just hope the newbies don't abuse this and ruin it for the honest cuponers like me :-)

Flyer week: Apr 22, 11 - Apr 28, 11

commented on Apr 27 2011 9:27PM
No worries Roxy!

That is excellent savings! Just like you, there are many other 'couponers' out there, and some families are helped significantly by coupons.

However, what my point was, which I did not clearly state, was that companies are putting out less coupons than in previous decades. So while the per capita of couponers may be the same or greater as previous decades, the availability of the coupons is not as it was. Typically the coupon comes at some sort of cost, be it a magazine or monthly newspaper purchase requirement.

Another shady marketing strategy can be seen at the Real Canadian Superstores in the area of this FreshCo. The Store Coupons which can be found at the store entrance and throughout the store should be thought of as a sale, not a coupon. Before this strategy was developed they would have been sales that a customer did not have to search for.

I too would be shocked if any store banned coupons, haha.

As for printable coupons-there are a few grocery stores that do accept them in Ontario and I've used them but I would never photo copy a coupon to scam my favorite grocery store, thats just wrong.Some people might say I'm cheap. NO, I'm not cheap I'm a smart shopper and I like to keep my hard earned money in my pocket, who doesn't? More power to the couponers that are honest and don't try to pull a fast one on the cashiers. I always make sure my coupon has not expired and that it's legit.

Quote "Also note: couponing is a dying trade, not an emerging trade"
That is so not true, couponing has always been a way of life for many people and beleive it or not being able to use coupons allows family's to purchase products they normally would not be able to afford and in turn the stores lose money. If Freshco ever banned couponing we would all take are business elsewhere because there will always be other grocery stores that will accept them, always.
Today I went shopping to get the deals, my total before coupons was 180.00- after coupons 60.28---hows that for savings?...gotta love it! Companies put those coupons out so we can use them, they want us to buy thier products and they know if consumers can use the coupons they are more likely to purchase thier products... thats a fact.

Gui - Irrational Complaints cont'd
commented on Apr 24 2011 10:08AM

As for employee difference? Well most employees will be the same after a store flip or 'banner change'. As well as if you get what you consider to be 'poor service' at one store, I assume you do at most stores. Retail stores are dominated by young employees who work for spending money, not for monthly bills. They are also paid minimum wage. If you equate this together, the result is a employee who gives you service based on your attitude. If you act like a jerk, they throw you the book. If you are kind, they may pull some strings for you.

Height Restrictions - Sorry for your genes (no not your pants) but that is how life is for you. Have you considered people who are shorter than you? And how they can't reach the top TWO shelves? Be happy you can reach 75% of product while they can only reach 50% of the product. Why the sigh? because you are complaining about your height to someone who doesn't care. Just simply ask, "can you reach ____ item for me please." When they do, smile and say "Thank you."

Can't read flyer - You realize this is not the FreshCo website right?

$0.25 charge - The point of this is to ensure customers return there carts to the carrels to get the quarter back, most notably in a shared parking lot with other businesses where people think they will use the same cart at all stores. Perhaps you would prefer a store without the charge where carts float around the parking lot, hitting your car, leaving scratches, dents and aggravation.

About me:
Do I work at this particular business? No
Do I work in a similar retail business? Yes
For how long? 5 years.

Gui - Irrational Complaints - How things really are.
commented on Apr 24 2011 10:06AM
Website navigation - It was very simple. I found my city, then the locations intersection that I was looking for.

Price Chopper vs. FreshCo vs. Loblaw Inc. - First of all, Price Chopper and FreshCo. are not affiliated with Loblaw Companies. Price Chopper is not 'out of business' they just banner changed, meaning they renamed the store in order to force a new contract onto their employees. Same thing happens with Loblaws and Real Canadian Superstore,A&P and Metro.

Printable/Manufacturer Coupons - As side from No Frills be independently owned, they are also under the guidance of Loblaw. FreshCo operates under Sobeys Guidance. Therefore every can have a different policy, and every No Frills could have a different policy from other No Frills. Yes, there is a handling fee reimbursement, but what you don't understand, is the cost of paying to sort coupons, mail coupons, receive coupons, further sort and calculate dollar values of coupons, and then mail them to all respective companies for final reimbursement. As for printable coupons, there are often fake printed coupons, or US only coupons that cannot be accepted. Also, it is not difficult to use a real coupon as a template to create a fake coupon in such programs as PhotoShop. So at the end of the week, how much do stores REALLY make off coupons? Also note: couponing is a dying trade, not an emerging trade. Such is the reason behind In-Store coupon displays. Stores boast great sales, which most people do not take advantage of, because they just don't look at coupons.

Fruits Veggies are graded A (best) through D (worst) - Loblaws(note: 's' indicates the store, not the company in general) sold the highest grade fruits and veggies while Walmart sells C/D grade fruit, veggies. The quality is significantly different, as are the prices.

commented on Apr 21 2011 9:50AM
The best kept secret is the location of Freshco stores in the GTA.Ontario, Canada.
Your web site is the worst to navigate while looking for store locations.
Why not have a heading Store Locations GTA
then list the bloody things !Simple?
Seems not for your highly educated web makers.

Roxy - Wow!
commented on Apr 17 2011 12:59PM
Ok so Price Choppers if no longer in business and has been replaced with Freshco.I had shopped at price choppers for years and I have to agree with a poster above about thier wilted veggies etc but I sure can't complain since it's now Freshco..I have never run into any problems with the produce section or the staff for that matter..I'm a big time coupon user and was told by someone they only accept coupies which I thought odd so I spoke to the manager and was told that is not true and that they encourage people to use coupons but they don't except internet prinatable ones which again is very odd as No frills accepts them and I thought both Freshco and No Frills was Loblaws..If this is true why wouldn't freshco accept them as well..if the printable one says "Manufacturers Coupon" then what is the problem...surley the staff are trained to spot a photo copied one?, I could.
Anyhow I will continue to shop at Freshco until I run into a rude cashier who insist on giving me a hard time when using my coupies... The store actually makes money by allowing us to use them...Not only do they get reimbursed for the full amount of the coupon but they also get a handling fee so in reality they make money so why in the ** would they refuse any coupon that has not expired...makes absolutely no sense to me.More people are going to start using coupons so if they want the business maybe they should reconsider accepting printable ones because if not I'll be switching..As for the staff I always find them to be polite and friendly...

I asked an employee for an item, he pointed towards the aisle and walked away, I didn't see it so I told him I couldn't find it, he came back and pointed again to the OTHER end of the aisle and said it is right there. Maybe he could have told me that in the first place. Dundas & Bloor location right when it was changing from Price Chopper to Fresco, but he was Frescho employee, not Price Chopper.

commented on Mar 22 2011 6:13AM
I was never impressed with price choppers.The store always looked dirty and 95% of the time the vegetables were old and wilted. As for freshco,the veggies and fruit are fresher but the prices aren't that great and they won't price match either,Oh well it's thier loss.

If you have problems seeing the flyer, try using firefox as a browser, it may resolve the issues you are all experiencing. You all could also think about updating your flash players as well, good luck, hope this helps all with these problems!

MJ - Height Restrictions
commented on Mar 12 2011 7:30AM
Due to the simple fact that at 5'2" tall - I can not reach any item that is on the top shelf of any aisle, including in the freezer section. I can't reach cream for my coffee, so I'll be shopping elsewhere. Especially since the employee I asked to reach for me, sighed, like I was inconveniencing him... Deli section is missed as well. Sorry Guys. Enjoy your taller customers.

Juli - Freshco Flyer
commented on Mar 7 2011 9:14AM
I can't see the flyer either - I have a Mac at work so I thought that was the issue. Yet at home on my PC I gets the same blank site with the 'Freshco' logo on it - and sorry but for the person that was kind enough to 'share' with us to just 'click' on the 'view flyer' as if some of us can't READ - If it does not appear on our screen how must we click it??

Bob - express line
commented on Mar 7 2011 7:24AM
I was buying 2 items at a Hamilton, Ont. store, lady in front had 30 items. I feel your cashiers should tell the customers they are in a express line. And I would like to comment that if your outlet wishes to keep me as a customer you should go back to 8 or less item line.

I am assuming that you are taking over the No Frills in St. Thomas - was in there a few days ago and was certainly impressed at how much you have cleaned it up already - this store was very uninviting and dirty for a grocery store - I wouldn't have bought fresh meat there to save my soul - will be interested to see the improvements and hope that all of the negative comments on this site are not what I can expect to see in my town

Jennifer - pay for carts?
commented on Feb 11 2011 1:15PM
Get rid of the .25 charge for the carts. That is the worst idea. I had to run back to my car and find change, then go to the cashier to get them to change it to a quarter. Students are desperately looking for jobs and your taking them away. Plus the store layout sucks.

I love the new store!!so much more cleaner and most of the staff where i go are polite!! The vegetables and fruit look fresh ..I love it!
I have been there a couple of times and they have had items priced wrong and they gave me the item for free. Its a little bit of a hassel though if you notice after you left the store , especially if you take the bus.
I wish they would put their flyer up the day before.But hey no one can be perfect its not a perfect world out there!

commented on Jan 10 2011 11:50AM
On Wed Jan 5, was the first and last time I will visit your store
First of all your set up is way to confusing, and after I got home from spending $200, most of the things I had bought from your shelves have already expired
as a consumer you would think checking the expiry date on salad dressings in a fairly new store wouldn
t have to be done, I did not notice this until a few days later when i went to use the dressing, the expiry was 10 Nov 10!!!!

To customers who want to price match.Ibeleive Fresh Co will provide this service as long as you have a receipt from thecompetiters store with the item listed with the price.If you want to purchase the same item at that price from the competiter proof should be required.

the idea that you are forced to go through determined sections is annoying. your prices are outrageous and selection is non-existant. what a failure!

Mike - You blew it
commented on Nov 7 2010 2:50PM
I am very dispointed that Price Chopper has flown the coup, now it is down to 2 - No Frills and Food Basics. Fressh Co are too difficult to get into, the idea of guiding the customer to where you want them to go have failed everywhere when used in the past. You prices are high, the store colour is very very unapetizing. I did learn something. The posted ever inviting smile of the store managers face has forever left in me the dissociation of such pictures to the quality of the store.

commented on Oct 29 2010 9:36AM
As a volunteer for the Salvation Army at Christmas every year, I was dismayed when visiting the office to sign up for this Christmas to find out that FRESHCO on Bunting rd. in St. Catharines has refused the Salvation Army permission to have a kettle there. This organization helps anyone, regardless of religious affiliation or belief, and does not do religious recruitment at these spots. All money collected in this city stays in this city. So... if FRESHCO cannot support a cause like this, then they have lost my business, and will encourage my friends to shop elsewhere as well. I am not speaking on behalf of the Salvation Army, as I am not affiliated with them except to help at Christmas. This is my own personal reaction to their response.

By the way Jo-Ann, your grammar is deplorable. You might want to take a course.

commented on Sep 23 2010 3:00PM
Hi there,
Last week I visited the new Oakville Store. I had previously been at No Frills doing my parent's groceries, but went for mine to Freshco. While there, an item I needed was $2.68 yet had been $1.00 at No Frills. It said "price matching" underneath it.I asked a clerk, who brought over a "manager" who indicated he had no will or ability to match the No Frills price. I have to say I put back what I had and left the store, with an attitude like that!
