Food Lion- ugh!

We recently moved out of state and the only grocery store around here is Food Lion, and I hate it. They sell everything so close to their expiration date, I just opened a jar of preserves that we just bought and it's already expired, same with the salad dressing, it's almost out of date. This is the third time this has happened, I didn't personally buy these items, SO did, so I didn't get to check them and he feels funny about returning food but to me it's just a waste. I guess we have to settle for Super Walmart, or better yet go way across town to Harris Teeter, I just wish I a good place to shop that was nearby.

Ewwww, that store is nasty. When I lived in FL we never shoped there because of what you are talking about. I remember there was a news story on them in the 90s about them putting something in the meat, I want to say it was amonia or bleach but cant remember.

 That sounds gross, I personally would have no problem returning the old nasty items

We have a local place that does that. They sell meat full price until it changes color or expires and then they put a price reduced sticker on it.
