Who Shops at WINCO?

We just recently got a WINCO near us and I am wondering if the savings are significant... the parking lot it always packed....

  • I used to when I lived near one. It's like a costco only you don't have to purchase a membership. Also you gotta bag your own groceries just an fyi

  • I do and you save on a lot of items just not meat.

  • I do. They're the cheapest store in town. Super clean, great selection, doesn't feel 'ghetto' the way stores like Foods Co and Food Maxx do.

  • weekly....I just watch the prices because some items can be purchased cheaper at walmart. Be careful about the meat some is good and other stuff isn't so good tasting. We save a lot each week by shopping there especially when you match up coupons. If you use reusable bags they give you a 6 cent credit per bag.

  • Frozen foods are a good deal, waffles and taquitos and such. They don't carry a lot of my y brands and their meat and produce is really scary. Not much of a bakery. They carry a lot of latin inspired ingredients.

  • cheap but the sizes are smaller. so be sure you look at the ounces. eg. 12oz package of bacon instead of a pound.
