  1. THE MEXICANS STORES ARE THE MOST FLEXIBLE. ALBERTSONS, TARGET, AND WALMART? YOU HAVE ONE DAY OUT OF THE WEEK. SEE YOU GRINGOS AT THE MEXICAN STORES. THE HARDEST WORKING AMERICANS. NO DOUBT.

  2. It would be nice if these stores make sure that prices are not suddenly raise. Most seniors live on a fixed income. Yesterday I tried to buy chicken it cost 14.00. What a shame. Also they need to make sure that the community is adhering you this. Went to Albertsons and there where long lines mostly young able bodied people. What a shame.
