The Co-op Deer Valley store is known to sell expired products; I have personally experienced it a few times and back in this July, I became severely ill after consuming some frozen seafood I bought from the Deer Valley store; it turned out the product had already expired at the time of purchase. After contacting the Co-Op, the store manager * 'solution' was a pathetic $25 gift card which included the refund too, and kicking the ball back to the manufacturer for 'quality' checks. So help me understand why the wrong is on the manufacturer while Co-Op was the one selling expired food products?? Is this how Co-Op treats its members by brushing off all responsibilities? What's sickeningly shocking was that its corporate office is behind it all. I escalated my complaint all the way to the head of communications * and VP Marketing and Member Relations only to no avail. They even blocked my attempt to reach out to the Coop Board of Directors by refusing to release their contact details or forward on my email! You know what; I also refuse to let the evil beat justice! I will contact them when the next board election brochure comes in my mail box which will have contact details of all candidates!
Do you know there's a new No Frills across the street from this insidiously run co-op store? Not only No Frills is much easier on your wallet, but they do price match too. Let's face it; economy hasn't been great in recent years and Calgary Co-Op has done nothing to sympathize with the general public who's suffering, still the same high price with the hype of 'local'; local produce as far as I know is still highly sprayed and loaded with chemicals. During the ongoing financial hardship, ditch this Co-Op store to make your hard earned $$ go further through price match. Contact me if you need extra saving tips on grocery and everyday items.
Do you know all stale/old produce and groceries items from Calgary Co-Op go straight to the landfill? That's why you will never see anything on quick sale/clearance there. They don't care about either their customers and members (that's why they sell expired goods), or the planet. Shame
on you!! If you care about mother earth and want to leave the nature as clean and pristine as possible to your kids and grand kids, stop shopping
at and supporting Calgary Co-Op NOW.
Do you know about most store made items are of very low quality? Next time when you're there, be sure to check the ground meat packs - if you
examine VERY closely, you will see tiny black speckles both on the surface and mixed in. I thought it was one off but have found some every time I check. Trust me you don't want those nasty little things to accumulate and wreck havoc inside you or your loved ones. Extra tips available on getting high quality food such as meat with no growth hormones or antibiotics at very affordable price if you're interested.
Here you have it; that's what Calgary Co-Op is truly underneath its shining logo.
