Really?!? Seasons has more of a selection than who? GG has more of a selection of most items, and nowadays even Frankels has more of a section than Seasons. Unless you are referring to some high end product. But as I said, people buying those items don't shop Amazing Savings.

Not true. People want to save money but not if it will inconvenience them too much. Frankel's is in bad location, in a bad area and from my experiences (and others) has not had items i needed. Plus Seasons has good takeout. Convenience and comfort has a value too.

Besides, Amazing Savings has lots of good stuff that anyone can use.

I find seasons to generally be the most pleasant shopping experience. But you definitely pay for it.

Is the lack of parking also part of their convenience? GG also has great service, great takeout, and selection too. Parking is still an issue.

The reason why Season's is more of a pleasant experience is because it's less crowded. More people shop at G.G. because their prices are at least understandable for the most part. Season's is highway robery.

If you want an even better experience, why not shop at Season's Express. You can pay even more, but it's less crowded there.

GG has the worst parking situation. Their parking lot is not only packed but also dangerous. And yes, less crowded makes for better shopping experience. Also, Some people like seasons takeout more than gg (me). The point is people have different preferences and each store has certain qualities that different people calue.

At least the new GG will have easy parking, and better prices too!

I could say the same. Season's, aside for meat, has the highest prices. I went earlier this week because i needed a few things and I was right there. Easily everything was .20-.50 cents more per item. Not exaggerating.

When is the last time you were there? They added two new registers recently. I only find parking difficult during prime shopping times. Usually I have no problem. G.G. and Seasons are much bigger nightmares when it comes to parking.

G.G. is also overpriced, but nowhere close to Seasons. Season's is a ligit rip-off.

2 new registers are still not operational yet  :(
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Not sure you understood me. I was referring to GG's "understood pricing".

YAY! Finally! Why no advertisement? Are they really going to keep prices low?

Maybe that's a way of keeping costs/prices low

I would think so. Otherwise they would just call it GG Lawrence (or is that already Inwood?)
