I went to Marc's a couple of years ago. We usually buy butter at Aldi's and a few odds and ends, but for the most part I just shop at the local family owned IGA store. They put a flyer out weekly, and I buy whatever's on sale and stock up.
It's sort of an old fashioned type place in that they have plenty of cashiers so you never wait long in line, and they have bag boys with bowties on to help the older people with their groceries. I think the prices are about the same or even cheaper than the bigger chains like Giant Eagle.
Plus I like their hot foods/deli. For $6, you can get an entree, 2 sides, and a roll. I sometimes grab a couple of those for a quick dinner.
