I love this store! It is a small store, so compact, and has a surprising variety of merchandise for single people and couples. As with all QFC's their prices are higher than their sister store Fred Meyer, but they are also CLOSE! Definitely a convenient place to shop for those of us who live in downtown Des Moines. As noted by other reviewees, I believe they use it for a management training store also. There is quite a bit of turnover, but under those circumstances the staff tries very hard to be helpful and pleasant. I also applaud them for their increasing availability of gluten-free items!
My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Krattli for 6 years for eyecare. This year my husband had some spots in front of his eyes that weren't the normal "floaters" you experience with aging eyes. He called Dr. Krattli and he immediately made an appt. for him with an eye surgeon. He didn't recommend someone - he contacted them himself and made the appt! Within two days he was having surgery to re-attach his retina. I purchase eyeglasses and contacts both from them and am always impressed with their friendly, thoughtful service. You sure don't get that kind of attention at Costco!!
