I have always driven past this grocer but only went into it for the first time the other day and it was a great delight. They have a great mix of groceries and produce and you can even pick up some emergency pre made meals here. They are open late each night too which always helps.
I would have to say don't buy the salads!!!! On two occasions I've bought pre-packed salads from here and both times the contents have been moldy. The first time it happened I thought it was just unlucky, but twice... Disgusting.
The coffee's pretty good though, so my advice is if you have to go there, skip the salad area and go straight to the barista.
There are so many grocers on this part of Crown St now. I have bought from this one, and the range is good, service good, and price fair. It just feels a bit like a "me too" business in a street that's already well served for this sort of thing.
I'm waiting to see if they can do anything that will differentiate them from the pack. No problems as such with what they're doing. Just find it's already been done - and they're the latest to appear - so least likely to hold my attention.
As you've said there is a great range and quality service and the prices are fair. Taking into account range value and service this is the best of all the grocers on the strip. Three stars is a much fairer appraisal as the Maloneys have connected with the local community. I enjoy my visits to Maloneys twice a week and always come away with something new and interesting.
