Very nice box/warehouse type store. Everything is in bulk, no membership requirements and super cool restaurant stuff. Good meat prices per pound but in the big bulk bags. Also candy, soda, coffee stuff, veggie and frozen section is awesome too!

This is a clean warehouse with a produce, meat, deli, paper goods and large sized products for restaurants and parties. Their employees are helpful and friendly. This includes a large meat area and boxed frozen meats. Good pricing.

Great place for bulk food items. When needing to feed a crowd this is our first stop. High quality meat at good prices. Almost a great place to buy large amounts of teenager food!

Wife an I shop here twice a month and spend about $300 a month total. Their breads are really good, chicken breasts arent badly priced considering what you get. There large eggs we buy are really good too. Wife said the veggies an fruits last longer then WINCOs. We dont do ALL THE SHOPPING THERE but what we do buy there is totally worth it.

Never shopped there before until this week. Had multiple people ask me if I needed help finding things because I was clearly lost haha. Very friendly staff and a great place to supplement your shopping with low priced bulk foods.One issue though: I was given a temporary EBT card because of the COVID lockdown and wanted to use it there but they dont accept it. I think they should change their policy on that because it would be a good way for struggling families to use their CalFresh benefits on inexpensive bulk foods. Just a thought!

Normally, in the past, I would have given this place five stars for cost and availability. However, I was in the store today and will NEVER return! I am 73 years old and have ALS which doesnt allow me to talk and takes my energy down the road! I went in to buy five items, all fairly heavy. Because my limbs wont allow me to negotiate the aisles with those huge carts, I took a bag with me to carry those five heavy items to the checkout. My attention span is limited due to exhaustion when I try to do too much. There were two checkers, one being a young man who was very, very nice and the other Carl who was very, very awful. I totally missed the new sign asking people to wait there for the next checker. But there were no people in line, so couldnt have made much difference. Carl waited until it was my turn and then loudly asked if I could read and sent me to wait behind three clients with full carts. It was obvious that I was next to be served, but he treated me like a child who needed to learn a lesson. I waited because I didnt have the energy to go elsewhere to buy what I had. But had to wait about 7-8 minutes holding my bag. If I could speak, I would have defended myself, but that wasnt possible. Carl said it was my turn, but I waited for the next young man so I didnt have to watch him watch ME cry. I did talk to the manager who was very nice, but I will never return nor will any member of my family. There should have been a little respect for my age if nothing else!

First time here there wasnt any plastic forks and also service is pretty slow at the cashier. Dont thinknill come again. A Walmart cashier might be a tad bit faster

If you dont want to spend tens of dollars for a COSTCO membership, heres a place you can shop for bulk quantities of food which is also more centrally located. I still remember their deal on raspberries.
