Horrible Administrative staff, they will fire you for any reason at all! 12/27/2011

The 82nd ave location's administrative staff are horrible (Crystal the secretary excluded)! I worked as a checker for the 82nd Ave, Portlan OR location, the graveyard shift. It was very tough, especially being 82nd avenue with all the weirdos coming in there every night. One morning I was totally exhausted and my lunch break was at 5am or so. Another checker took over as usual (Qolin/Colin (forgot the spelling)), and a line formed while I was getting my bagel at the bulk section of the bakery. I (stupidly) decided to go ahead and eat the $0.33 bagel and I paid for it a few weeks later by having the checker charge me for an additional bagel when I only had one in hand. I paid for it with the checker named Colin. Mind you all bagels are thrown out each morning and replaced with fresh bagels. So I grabbed a bagel that was about to be thrown in the trash compactor. Well, apparently the administrative staff reviewed the surveillance video and some how came across that I paid for a bagel without paying. They fired me despite me telling them that all they had to do is to interview Colin and he would tell them that I charged an extra bagel one day when I only had 1 in my hand. I also had a receipt but didn't have it on me. The 'firing staff' that they hired were rude and tried to make me think that I was some kind of criminal! I was fired but luckily the assistant manager let me continue to shop there (I wouldn't be trespassed). Don't work for this place. I saw day-time staff come in in the morning when they are buying some breakfast, with stress on their faces. I saw night time shelf stockers who didn't have much to look forward to except to try their best to meet the quarterly quota of the store. Stay in school like I did and become a Computer Engineer! -Sincerely, danwat1234@aol.com more

Cheap Prices 8/25/2008

Next to Costo, Winco is the cheapest place in town to buy Groceries. Better take cash though because they don't accept credit cards or debit cards. more

The Price is Right! 8/9/2006

I have to admit, WinCo is not my first choice of places to shop. However, when it comes to saving money or buying bulk food items (nuts, special ingredients for recipes, etc), it's a winner! The other day I needed several ingredients for some cookies--- walnuts, coconuts, etc. I went to WinCo so I could get a small amount and hopefully save some money. The prices there were less than 1/2 as much as at the grocery store, and I was able to get exactly how much I needed for the recipe! There selection of bulk foods is quite amazing! All kinds of nuts, cereals, spices, and like I said, special ingredients--- sweetened coconut, turbinado sugar, etc! it's slightly awe-inspring, actually! I always end up spending 1/2 hour just wandering around gawking at their selection! There other grocery items are all slightly less than your average grocer, as well. But the real bargain is in the bulk! more

Winco- Prices are unbelievable 8/7/2006

Winco is employee owned, the prices are unbelievable. I can get two weeks worth of food for a family of five for less than $200. You bag your own groceries, but for the money you save it is worth it. more

Never Pay Full Price for Spices Again 4/7/2006

I'll never forget the one day I was buying dill weed at the grocery store in the little glass bottles in the baking aisle. Just out of curiosity, I checked the little tag on the shelf that listed the price, including the price per pound. I was stunned to find that the dill weed I was buying was around $250 a pound!! Outrageous. I vowed then and there that I would always purchase my spices in bulk bins. At Winco, they have a huge selection of bulk bin spices, and so much more. There is cereal, candy, nuts, and snacks. I think they even have bulk bin pet food. Now I pay around 12 cents to fill up my bottle of dill weed. That's a price I can live with. Winco has excellent prices on everything in their store, and the selection is amazing. At time, Winco is pretty crowded and most people seem to go there to really stock up, so the lines are pretty slow moving. Also, you will need to bag your own groceries, which is a very small price to pay for such savings. Recently, the Cedar Crossing Winco and the Orenco Station Winco started accepting ATM cards, which has made paying much easier, since I don't carry a check book. more

Love the bulk foods 4/5/2006

Even if you don't do the majority of your shopping at Winco (and you should) at least check out the bulkfood section. Because you aren't paying for all the packaging and advertising of brand names you can save a ton of money on items like popcorn, raisins, nuts, and most of all spices. I have been shopping at different Winco's for years and wouldn't do most of my shopping anywhere else. I prefer the Hwy 99 location after a bird on the produce incident at the Winco on Fourth Plain and Andresen. I would also try not to shop on the first weekend of the month because the store can be really crowded. They now accept debit cards and they also accept manufacturers coupons. On the way out with your cart full of groceries (for 1/2 as much at other stores) be sure to get a slice of yummy pizza. Its a large slice and includes a drink. more

Winco is the place to go for the bulk of your shopping 4/4/2006

Winco is the place to go for the bulk of your shopping, if you do, it will cut your grocery bill in half. As a large family of 6, I've got to be frugal with our grocery budget, and Winco is the place to go. Their prices are significantly cheaper then Safeway, Albertsons, and Fred Meyers. I shop the newer East Vancouver store, and I prefer it compared to the other stores in the Vancouver area. It's usually less crowded, and stock is neater, shelves are full. To keep the prices lower, you have to bag the groceries yourself. And they don't accept Credit Cards. They do now accept debit cards, which is a nice change from before. It used to be cash, check only. So bring your helpers to help you bag! :) more

Save Money on your Grocery Bill 1/25/2006

If you have not taken the time to visit WinCo, then you are missing a huge opportunity to save some money. WinCo is not a membership supermarket, like many people think. It is simply a self-serve market where you bag your own groceries and have to shop large aisles with some food still in the packing boxes. While they are known for the bulk food section, I am impressed with the variety of choices throughout the whole market. The prices cannot be beat even at Costco, trust me I have checked. The bakery makes excellent cakes, muffins and donuts. The produce department offers a great selection of high quality produce and of course the bulk food selection has them all beat. Reserve some time, as the shopping process there is never a quick one, but you will certainly find your grocery bill drop from 30-50% depending on where you currently shop. more

Great deals on groceries 9/30/2005

Winco is a great place to shop for groceries! Their prices are significantly less than any other grocery stores in the area. They carry a lot of store name/off name brand foods. They do have some name brand items, as well, but you the prices aren't as competitive on those items. They also have great deals on bulk items! One drawback is that they only accept cash for payment, so you need to be prepared. more

So Cheap 9/23/2005

I love Winco! I only shopped there in college (in Corvallis) and now that I'm out, I just can't go anywhere else and spend the extra money. I do agree that sometime thier produce is a little lacking, but if you go at the right time, you can get everything you could need! Plus, they're open 24 hours a day, so you can go anytime you'd like!! more

Good prices 8/17/2005

Winco is a great store to get lower prices. You can get a lot of good deals on everything in the store, which makes Winco a smarter choice when it comes to grocery shopping.. This particular location however, isn't the best. Since it's a really busy area, they seem to be out of stock on lots of items. Plus, security can be really annoying around there since there's a lot of robbery. more
