Yeah, best time to go is 7 am. Only hard core shoppers go that early. I took a No Frills flyer to the Coquitlam store. Superstore match prices, especially No Frills - same company. Brand name pop for 95 cents. Take flyer to Superstore, no tax on top of that.

Check out "Won't be Beat" prices.

They do. At least the Coquitlam one does, as there is a No Frills close by. Some of the prices are damn scary. Pure Life water 24 bottles for under 2 bucks!

Funny thing is, most people don't know about No Frills. They assume it's some hole in the wall. The Coquitlam store is pretty nice (clean and orderly). Produce department is nothing like Superstore, which IMO sucks at all the branches. The Rupert and Grqndview store is by far the filthiest, most disorganized store I have ever stepped foot in. This is before the renovations.

Anyway, a No Frills is opening up in the Knight and Kingsway area..... or was it Fraser Street.

Oh, No Frills does the PC Points thing as well.

I go there every once in a while, as my mom lives close by. The renovations are/were a nighmare. They had no plan and nobody there knew where anything was. It was the case of left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing. Obviously fapping, LOL. It's par for the course at that location.

The renovations are partly done at the Grandview location.

There are still sections that are still missing and a huge eye sore but the sections that are done look pretty nice. Have a look at the centre section that is now the vegetable/fruit area.

Like 90blkcivic said, the staff there are still a little confused on where things are so you might as well just go on a mini adventure and try to find things yourself.

LOL, that Walmart a few blocks away is nothing to model after. Granted it was a patch job after inheriting the old Costco site, but it could have been renovated a lot better, too. Hey, it's East Van. We're used to it. Even if they were to make it look nice, the clientele would not feel at home.

Walmart is Superstore's biggest competitor. Whenever there's a promotion going on at Walmart, Superstore matches it.

Superstore tries to match everybody's prices, but fail big time. Today, large eggs were $1.50 a dozen at Shoppers Drug Mart. Superstore didn't have the yellow "price match" tags on the shelves. I think they were not able to match it. They normally match Shopper's $1.99 per dozen price.

To their credit, they do match prices when you take an ad up to the service counter.

I'm starting to hate superstore, they're going downhill steadily. Was there this evening and it sucked trying to get down the fucking isles, let alone buy food.

^I usually see carts filled with milk at the superstore on marine dr. Do they just drink it? Or is it for like a bakery? I honestly can't see how you can drink that much milk.
