They also do many great things on the pharmacy side for public health side like provide completely free antibiotics to customers with a prescription (no charge to you or insurance) as well as some other common meds like some high blood pressure meds and diabetes meds.

I completely forgot about this! (You can probably tell which one in my family goes to Publix regularly. Hint... it's not me!) That is another awesome service. Once, when I was travelling and I forgot my meds, they gave me a weekend's supply at no charge.

Back OT, there's talk that stores around here will start limiting fresh meat purchases to 2 items per shopper. The refrigerated meat shelves were about 1/3 full at 7:30 AM yesterday at Walmart, but they were restocking.

For $62 worth? No store is
going to take your word
for it and just replace the
produce. Why would they,
it's far too much money.
Certainly not the store I
was at and for sure not
Walmart. They have signs
that say no receipt not
refund. I got some bad fish
at Walmart last year and had
thrown out the receipt. I had
the empty Walmart package
and they still refused a refund.
And they know me at that store.
No receipt no refund period.

It's not petty larceny when
they owe it to me. I just did
what they would have told
me to do if I had a receipt.
Why should I eat $62.50
when I don't have to.




If I were you, I dang sure wouldn't eat $62.50 either - that will buy you about $1500 of groceries.

FWIW...Joeman is correct about Publix. It's very likely, had you bought it there,



Never heard of Publix or Wegman's
or Granny's or Gert's or whatever
local store you have. I can guarantee
if you went into any of them with
no receipt and no product you bought
there, just your 'story' that you got
ripped off for $62.50, none of these
stores would give you squat. Go
ahead, try it just for the heck of
it. They would have people lined
up all day if that were the case.

After the 10th bad avocado I
started cutting them open at
random and threw them all out
2 weeks before I went back to the
store. So I had no receipt and no
product.

Screw those receipts. Even better, don't get receipts. You seem capable of stealing anything you need.



Really? You think I'm that good? Should
I move up from avocados to jewelry
stores and banks next? Make a
career out of it. Please advise me,
you opinion means so much.

You can get $1500 worth of groceries
for $62.50 where you shop? Where
is that, so we can all shop there..

FWIW...Joeman is correct about Publix. It's very likely, had you bought it there, if you simply brought the product in and showed them what was going on, they would replace any amount you claimed, with or without a receipt.



Last year Publix had a problem where their store-brand pepperoni sometimes had mold when first opened. Leaving the bad package of pepperoni in the car (expecting not to need it), I told Publix my problem. Others had experienced the same problem. Publix replaced it free. I had it happen a second time, and replaced.

I expect your grocery store would have been aware of YOUR avocado "problem," unless you just happened to pick each and every bad one, leaving only good avocados. Others -- folks who bought only a few -- probably would have called attention to the problem also. Yes, you would be "different" by the number of bad avocados you bought, but the store should have been aware of its avocado problem. Did you pay by cash?? If you paid by credit card, the store could probably pull up your credit card receipt if you know the day.

When the (now old) NEW-STYLE $20 bills first came out -- the ones where the picture is not centered -- I got my very first one as cash back from a check used to buy groceries. It was a very different kind of money in several ways that I had never seen. At home, my bill checker pen said it was bogus. I took it back to Publix the next day. I said I had gotten this bill as change yesterday, but I wonder if it's good or not. Two clerks at the help counter inspected it, said it looked valid to them. One went to get their bill checker. When it tested bad, one went into an office. The store manager came out. I explained. She paid me my $20, asking only that -- if I could find the receipt -- please provide it. I dug the receipt out of the paper recycles and on my next visit delivered it with a note of thanx. That's the Publix that I know.

I should add, on the pharmacy side, Publix pays YOU to get your flu shot. Anyone can go in, insured or not, get your shot, and get a $10 Publix card good for anything they sell (except I think usps stamps, tobacco, or alcohol). They've done this for at least the last 3 years.

CVS, Walgreens, etc. do them for free. Publix goes the extra mile, as always.

You have to fridge them when they
are just starting to get ripe. And the
fridge has to be 34-35 degrees. I
use a dorm size fridge for produce
because it's much easier to keep
them that cold. A big kitchen fridge
tends to be more towards the upper
30's. They have still been good in
my dorm fridge 30 days later. It
suspends the ripening totally.

You can also freeze avocado's. Peel,
remove the pit and freeze. They are
almost like fresh when thawed.



EvenBob,

Thanks for the advice! I'll have to try freezing them, as the refrigerator is set at 37 F.

Not cold enough. It has to be 34-35, the
closer to freezing the better. If you have
a full size fridge the temp will vary in
different spots. It might be as high as
42 in crisper drawer at the bottom. With
a small 3 cubic foot fridge, it's all one
temp. All the produce I buy will keep
for a month in the small fridges. But
I know what not to buy also.

Don't trust the setting temp. Get an actual
thermometer and put it in different
spots.

Doesn't matter, no receipt no refund.
Goody goody gumdrops for all
you people who have stores that
believe every story they hear and
will dole out refunds like an ATM.
I din't buy at those stores, here it's
ironclad, no receipt no refund.
Period. So I got my refund another
way. Good for me..
