    Even the “newer” Homeland stores (mostly old Albertsons stores) are getting major renovations. This new CEO has done much to signal they are not to be counted out in the grocery wars.

    Here's your bump.

    now that it's near 2020, how would everyone rate OKC's grocery store options? I know there are still a few food deserts and there's plans in the works for the big one on the eastside, but barring that - what are resident's feelings of OKC's options regardless of how close they are to you? Has OKC matured into a market that can support multiple grocery options? Is Walmart still the largest grocer? High end? What are your thoughts?

    I think more what changed the game was Amazon and meal subscription services like Hello Fresh. I use Walmart at least weekly for milk, sugar, etc. I use Trader Joe's for flowers, hostess gifts, impulse items. They are like the Target of groceries for impulse purchasing. I really was never impressed by Uptown Grocery, and use Whole Foods for most heat and serve items. I don't use Sam's or Costco because I don't have many mouths to feed but my own.
    I do wish we had a decent delicatessen. Cheevers closed their Cafe C which I used when I was closer to downtown. An Eatzis or a Brooklyn style deli would be nice.

    We have come light-years in the last 5 years or so.

    We have added Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Costco, and Winco. Homeland and Crest have done a good job. Uptown Grocery has 2 very nice, upscale stores. Aldi is a great option and has expanded. Sprouts is great for what they do.

    The middle-market stores are still a little weak, but that sector is dying anyway, squeezed by the specialty grocers and deep-discounters. And really, Winco (which I love) more than covers everything the middle-market traditional grocers offer and doesn't require you to buy in massive quantity.

    I shop at Trader Joe's, Sam's (because I live very close to one that is incredibly easy to get in and out of) and Winco. I'll occasionally make the trip to Costco but it's too far for me to make it into my regular shopping rotation, but I will keep my membership there. I live very close to an Aldi which is fine, but I don't patronize it very often. I'm relatively close to Whole Foods and Sprouts, but I've never been a fan of either.

    At least in my area (close to Penn Square) I have all the options I could ask for.

    I personally would like to have either Winco or Crest closer to our neck of the woods. Just this past year we have switched to shopping more at Aldi and moving away from WM, even though we have one just under a mile away. We do like some of the products offered at Crest, such as Turkey Hill Ice Cream, hence why we would love to have one closer. I am disappointed that our local Buy For Less switched over to a Cash Saver or whatever crap idea that is. I wouldn't mind an Uptown, but it would come third to Crest and Winco. I still would love for some one to bring Wegman's to OKC.

    Did Uptown come through on their promise to have a grocery store up and running by Nov?

    Nope.

    I wonder how Urban Agrarian is faring up in Edmond? For the price point, I am more likely to use Whole Foods, but they are great spot for hostess gifts like fancy syrups, etc.
