I think that it's always nice having a "nicer" grocery store nearby. And Straub's definitely qualifies. Their prices are a little high on some things, but the quality of their meat is quite superior to any of the other stores in town. The butchers are also extremely helpful, they go so far as to tell you how to prepare the meat if you ask. Also, their prepared food is quite good, with a large selection. It ends up being cheaper than going out. It's the closest store to us, so we often drop by to pick something up that we need ... but usually it's our "special occasion" grocery store.
