We are delighted to see Ron's return to store #7 in Almaden.

One person we miss to most now is Sue.

We under stand management terminated any employee with less than 10 years service.

I had notice until recent many shelves empty. Apparently to
conserve cash and letting a great person as Sue go is misplaced cost control.

I've lived in Almaden for 8-years, and shopped at PW without ever having a problem. Good products, good service. Ron has been a great manager through the years, and it shows with friendly staff and customer loyalty. He doesn't forget a name or a face, and his family is part of this close community. Unfortunately, the powers-that-be have shifted Ron to another store, and it doesn't have the same neighborly feel that it used to have. I always run in to friends and neighbors whenever I shop.

I buy practically everything at PW, and everything from the produce to the meats to the bakery is very exceptional. I've been coming here for a few months now, and the cashiers and baggers are very nice. Especially Ron and Sue, they are what make my trip to the store even more better! But I encountered a cashier with the name of Kathy. I was behind a lady and I was unloading my groceries onto the revolving table, and I saw that Cathy was exceptionally friendly to the people in front of me. She asked how their day was, complemented on the lady's hair, and she was just great, at least to those customers. But, when it was my turn she completely turned rude. She rang up my groceries, and she was also being very rude to her bagger. I was just surprised at how she was acting. I was about to slide my card when she yelled "It won't work until I'm done". Then she whispered how impatient and annoying it is to her bagger. I was about to angrily storm out of the store. But I decided to just blow if off. It didn't end there, I guess the bagger forgot to put my small croissant in my cart (I would't blame her I set it there when the bagger was't looking) when Cathy saw and angrily tossed my croissant into my cart. I was FURIOUS! She quickly went on to the next customer like I was a piece of dirt. She truly just ruined my day with her attitude. I expect cashiers to at least respect their customes. They don't have to care about their day or their lives, but treating everyone crucially is essential. I don't think I will ever shop at PW again after experiencing this. I was kind to her as soon as I saw her, but I really cannot fathom her cruelty. I will try to shop at Safeway or Lucky, and I am really sad to say that such a respected company like PW has rude and uncivil employees. The only reason I believe she was rude might have been because she disliked Indians, but I figured a person of her standard (a 40something woman who is cleary uneducated and works at a grocery store to make a living) doesn't know how to be courteous, or at least treat customers with an ounce of respect.

PW has a really nice selection of high quality meat and produce. The service is always friendly and helpful -- from the bakery to deli to butcher. Everyone makes a genuine effort to get to know you. The store also carries locally grown fruit from nearby farms as well as many local items such as sauces and jams -- that's a great option to support local businesses as well as try out new varieties that you don't find elsewhere.

Good selection and they carry things that Safeway does not. I like the meet and butcher area better here as well. Meet seems to taste and look better and a better selection of veggies and fruits in the produce area.

Ron does a great job along with his friendly staff.

PW Market is a great place to shop. The employee are extremely helpful. The meat counter is always very well stocked and the butchers are great. The bakery is very nice. We have never had a bad cake from here. My kids always get a free cookie when we get to the store. We are always greeted with friendly smiles from the employees. The produce is very fresh. The fruit is very nice and always holds up nicely when I get it home. That tell me that the produce doesn't sit in a warehouse waiting to be delivered. They also occasionally have fruit from local farmers.

PW is a great neighborhood grocery store and conveniently located. I am always stopping by to pick up a few things and love how there are rarely any lines. I am always impressed with the produce because it is always fresh and they have plenty of everything.

PROS: Convenient, not crowded
CONS: Prices are higher

For great choices in the meat dept, bakery, deli, produce and a few extras, the Almaden PW is the place to shop. Ron has hired a great staff that is really focused on customer service. They have great competition from Safeway not too far down Almaden but with their prices for the most part really competitive, PW is really a good spot. We buy all of our meat here and are in nearly every day!!

PROS: location, service, choice and pricing
CONS: need more space
