When ever my wife and I think of a place to go in order to buy high quality products in a nice environment, we think of this New World! We have changed our diet to gluten free and dairy free and they also have a very large selection of flours and cooking necessities for people living like this. In some stores it seems like an afterthought, but in this New World it is very accessible and has a large selection. Its made a hard transition very easy.
I wont lump this New World with the one on Pioneer Highway as they are as different as chalk and cheese. I only go to Melody's if there is no other choice but to go there. The Checkout Ops will tell blatant lies if they make a mistake and the Supervisors will always back them if you make a complaint so if you shop there and a mistake is made do not bother placing a complaint as it will only hold you up getting home.
When I go there, and I have to admit it is getting rarer and rarer that as I do as there is another supermarket just across the road, I always say "hi" and "thank you" to the checkout operator as that is polite and is the way I was brought up. Sadly I have to say that I would consider myself lucky if I was even acknowledged.
Shop there my all means if you want to, it's a free world, but if you want my advice, shop elsewhere :)
