I love the Fareway. There is something to be said about going to the store and it is not to big to find what you need. They don't keep every single brand on hand, they keep those that sell. You aren't standing in front of a shelf for 30 minutes to compare the items because there are only 1-3 products to compare, not a dozen. You don't spend 2 hours shopping, because it takes that long to walk the entire store.
Fareway is the perfect store to be able to run in, pick up a quick item & get out in 5 minutes because they watch their checkouts and don't let more than 2 people wait without opening a new one. You don't have a quarter mile to walk to the back of the store.
Fareway has an amazing butcher dept. The top of the line, best quality for beef, pork & chicken. The service at the meat counter equals that at the checkout.
Sure, Fareway isn't open past 9pm or before 8am and they are closed on Sundays - but it keeps their prices low and their employees happy.
I love my local Fareway!
