Tough times call for tough words about grocery stores. Tampabay.com readers showed their loyalties in response to today's story about grocery chains fighting to keep their shoppers.
"Publix better lower their prices before buying up and building all these new stores. I was Publix shopper for over 30 years and with their recent "rip off" attitude I've moved on. A few cents is nothing, 2 or 3 dollars is substantial," Lori says.
Sharon shows her loyalty to Publix: "Publix is clean and friendly, and when I take advantage of their sales, I always come up with the best pricing there overall. Go Publix!"
Mac is already predicting the end for Publix: "It's lights out for Publix too when Wal-Mart parks one of its Neighborhood Market groceries across the street from each Publix store."
How about you? Publix, Wal-Mart or are you ready to start growing your own food?
