The Dominicks grocery store chain has long been known as a high end grocer serving the Chicagoland area. High end? I think not. I wrote this post while laying in bed vomiting my brains out from bad shrimp purchased at the Dominicks in McKinley Park. Not only was the shrimp I ate bad, but the two lamb chops I bought at the same outing were also spoiled. I picked up the lamb, brought them home right away, and cooked them an hour after the purchase. I could smell the spoilage as it was cooking. I took one bite and spit it right back out. How can you call yourselves high end when you serve lethal meat?
This was not the first time I purchased bad meat from Dominicks. In fact, about half of the time I buy lamb, beef or shellfish from Dominicks, it is already spoiled. You are going to kill somebody!!! Wake up Dominicks because you are a law suit waiting to happen.
How about that overpriced produce as well? You may call yourselves high end because you can charge a massive markup on fresh vegetables, but any discount grocer has you beat in quality. Every vegetable I have ever found at Dominicks was coated with an ultra-thick layer of wax. Wax to keep it looking appetizing? That doesn’t sound very fresh to me.
Lets not forget about the horrible customer service. You can call them up and complain about barfing your brains out from their rotten food, and they won’t care. If you happen to forget your membership card, they won’t go out of their way to give you the discount or even look up the phone number. What is the point of the membership card anyway? Only thing it’s good for outside of the discount is money off gasoline from Dominicks gas stations only. I have only seen one Dominicks gas station ever, so why not just charge less money for the food?
A lesson to you Dominicks, get out of the game while you can. Even discount grocery stores are better than you in every way.
