After the buyout, I was surprised to see most of the original employees still working there. I was told they offered continued employment to the existing staff, which I thought was impressive for a buyout. What impresses me the most about Ridley's is that their prices are very competitive. With food prices having increased everywhere over the last year, I still feel I can get more food for the money at Ridley's.
I occasionally shop at Coscto and Maceys for certain items, but Ridley's is still my store of choice. They have a good selection, but I don't ever feel like I'm shopping in a crowded warehouse store environment. I've gotten to the point that I'd rather donate a kidney than drive through a busy Walmart parking lot again.
Ridley's offers a clean store, bakery, pharmacy, deli, friendly employees, and low prices. They also have a customer loyalty rewards program where you can cash in the points you earn by shopping for gift cards to local restaurants and businesses.
