Whenever I visit my family in San Mateo, I love going to the upscale Draeger's market and Bakery. No doubt, this place is not for bargain shoppers, but looking at the bakery section is like being a kid in a candy shop. The most inticing cupcakes, pastries, tarts, creme brulee, tiramisu, chocolate covered strawberries, etc. Don't go if you're hungry, because will power will melt away!

OMG! The BEST bakery on the peninsula, bar none. The variety and selection is amazing. From simple morning pastries to elaborate layer cakes, everything is top notch.

What a letdown! Anticipating the new Draegers to arrive in in Oct '07, we get to the checkout counter, slide the American Express Card through the scanner and it tells you in large letters: NOT AUTHORIZED!!

"Oh, we don't accept AMEX" says the clerk as she points to a sign / message written on the counter. I have a two person barber I go to that accepts AMEX. Outside Stockton on Hwy 88, a small family-run fruit / vegetable stand (Louie's Frutta) accepts AMEX.

Management says it is too expensive. Hmmm . Walking the aisle today, I notice 5 oz of salad dressing for $7.95. They boast of their 3500 bottle inventory of wines .... I walked one whole aisle today and didn't spot a bottle for less than $37.00. ..... but AMEX is too expensive!!!

This store is in a department store building in a center that has been a retail graveyard for 15+ years ... Draegers tries to reconfigure a department store into a grocery store .... didn't succeed with the 43,000 sq ft. Unfortunately they're located to the popular and more handy Danville Safeway 150 yeards away just across the boulevard. Just opened is the 60,000 sq foot Daugherty Valley Safeway just 2.5 miles away ....and that is an absolute delight...... and they accept AMEX !!

Draegers: WAKE UP!

Draegers: WAKE UP!

Pros: Fresh produce, nice meat selection (very high-priced, though)

Cons: No AMEX, Very High Prices, Inconvenient, aisles are small, Top Management short-sighted.
