Family Fare Supermarkets Review Plus a $100 GC Giveaway!

Recently Family Fair bought out Bag N Saves and No Frills Supermarkets. I shopped at Bag N Save quite regularly, and have been patiently awaiting it's transition into Family Fair Supermarkets.

I'm so happy that they've remodeled. Everything looks so crisp, clean and modern.

Where Can I Find it?

It's took awhile to figure out where things were at, but as Mica pointed out they have a sign on their carts that list where everything is. How cool is that?

My favorite Part of the Store

My Favorite Sign +
They had a HUGE deal on meat!

Say, "Yes!" to Yes

I'm not all about store cards. Mainly because I have to carry yet another card in my purse. Not this time! Every store has a kiosk at the front of the store, or you can go online before you shop. You can just type in your phone number to check out Yes Reward Card deals. At the register they take care of you. I saved so much just by using the Yes Card!

10 for $10 Deal

4 for $3 Deal

I saved $28.28 with my Yes Card + I got a refund for the bags I brought in. My total bill was $132.70. Thankfully I had $100 in gift cards. I only spent $32.73. I can say, "Yes!" to all of that!

Shopping With Kids

Some of my most frustrating moments are shopping with my kids. They aren't even the type of kids that scream, or run far, far away. They just pick on one another, don't pay attention to where they are going, hop from one square to the other without touching the lines, and well you get the picture. I've learned some tips over time that I'm going to share with you.

Family Fare has little grocery carts. They are a bit too small for Mica, but Isaak loves them! He got our deal on grapes and more.

I put together a list of helpful things you can do to make your shopping experience a positive one with your children.

The kids weren't too bad. It was a big grocery run, I stopped for lots of pictures, and it was past their bedtime.

Check Out

They have a self checkout and regular check out. I always have so much produce that I prefer regular check out. Isaak loaded a lot of it up!

Many More Perks:
  • They have fuel savings at my favorite gas station QT. 
  • Some select locations have health clinics.
  • They have a local selection of alcohol. When you purchase 4 or more bottles of wine you get 10% off.
  • They have a pet section that looked wonderful. 
  • Check out their stores for giveaways.
  • Sign up for a YES Rewards card.
  • There's many more perks!

It looks like a great place to shop. I LOVE the idea of having the layout on the cart. It would save so much time instead of having to hunt down an employee to help me find what I need.
