a lot of vegan options...

3 Posted on 04 / 14 / 2008

I just went to Steep Hills for the first time. It is pretty crowded, but they do have a lot of stuff. I was able to find many of my vegan products (e.g., Earth Balance, tempeh, Veganaise, etc.). Fresh produce is delivered on Mondays, so if you are looking to buy produce that would be the day to go. Also, students can buy a membership for 50% off ($10 for a year). It's also good to know that they only accept cash or cheques - no credit cards or interac.

Pros: selection, organic, local goods
Cons: small, crowded, hard to find what you need

Disappointment on Broadway

2 Posted on 03 / 11 / 2008

While I realize that the staff are mostly volunteers just in to get their hours so they don't have to pay a bunch extra on top of high prices, the level of rude behavior is completely outrageous. If a cashier/salesperson acted like that at a 7/11, a grocery store or a gift shop, they would be fired immediately.

As to prices, 25% on top of already high prices is ridiculous. I was most disappointed to find that their local, organic products are 3-4 times as expensive as the supermarket and at least twice as pricey as a farmer's market. If you live on any kind of budget, choose carefully at Superstore adn wash well.

Pros: selection, local
Cons: rude staff, high prices
