Applicable to all Sobeys stores Since Sobeys opened in Calgary I find that with every month that passes, their sales become much better. As far as I can see, since a few weeks back, (mid 2007) many of their sale items are excellently priced. While many of the regular prices I consider a bit high, similar to other supermarkets in Calgary (excluding the Real Canadian Superstore (with some reservations) & Costco) . (We consider these to be, hands down, cheaper then all). Now, Sobeys sales are leaving all other Calgary supermarket chains in the dust. Most other Calgary supermarkets sales are the same old tired, mostly non-specials they have been advertising for years. Check out Sobeys advertisements during the past weeks, we have never noticed cheaper sales on some of the items in Calgary before. It is hoped other supermarkets will begin to emulate Sobeys. Until then, in my opinion, many of the Calgary supermarkets should be a bit embarrassed .
this company and its managers disgust me. I went to there today and saw some nice people handing out flyers and free bags today and the manager was rude and quite disturbing. These people were just trying to support thier fellow union members (and pass along some info) who were on strike at the forest lawn location because Sobeys refuses to treat thier employees with respect and dignity and improve workplace conditions. Seriously give you heads a shake, what you are doing is running all sobeys into the ground, are you all scared to give your employees respect and treat them they way they deserve to be treated. The way that manager reacted is embarressing and i will be telling people to shop ethically, its not always about what you pay for something, sure they maybe cheap but they treat thier workers just as cheaply! That manager should be fired!
