Decent prices, not as great a discount as most believe, but still decent. Double check any items from the frozen food isle! the freezers are often not cold enough to keep food frozen. And double, triple check expiration dates, esp on aspirin, etc., items are often almost a year past date. BIGGEST GRIPE- check out is a nightmare every single time- from incredibly long line waits either from cashier incompetence or apathy or waiting for someone to dig their check book out/write a check/get approval AFTER their 50+ items are rung up and bagged. Also, cashiers and managers are not into the whole "customer service" thing, often rude and disrespectful, which can be a turn off considering one is waiting in that line to give their hard-earned money to the business. Some will say, you get what you pay for (or don't pay for in this case) however, the "discount" isn't that steep and hey, even COSTCO and Aldi's cashiers/managers are pleasant and super efficient.

Well typically Xpect is a great place to shop. I have noticed lately that if you do not know prices they can trick you into thinking that items there are always a best buy. Know your prices! Watch out. I feel Walmart is alot cheaper most of the time. Don't get me wrong I enjoy shopping Xpect but just watch your prices. One more thing NEVER, I MEAN NEVER buy shrimp from Xpect. Purchased it this weekend and got sick from it. Swollen face, vomiting all night. No to the shrimp at Xpect.

This is why. expect discounts 60 pershing drive derby, ct 06418 203-736-8540. sign in the store hung over the aluminum foil trays says 04/.89 when you got to the cash register or cashier the cash register receipt says I will write what the receipt says 4 @ 2/0.89 equals to the cash register $1.78 yet the sign leads customers to believe that the four are sold at .89 all four aluminum trays. Pretty cute is it not?????????????//

You never know what you might find here, but chances are it will be a great price. They carry a good selection of food items, but sometimes these are cheaper if you get them on sale at the grocery store. But if you need something when it's not on sale, this is the place to go. They have spices 2 for $1, and the produce is generally good. Things like medicine, cleaning products, and hygeine products are usually a good deal. But the best of all is the closeout section. There are all kinds of things here, and hardly ever the same thing twice, so if you see a good deal, grab it! I got a first baseman's mitt for my son for $20 when the same one was $60 at sports authority. I got a pack of laminating sheets for $2 which was $10+ everywhere else, and name brand hair coloring for $1!
There is usually a great selection of items, like holiday decorations, school supplies, candles, toiletries, etc. The problem with the store is finding a place to park, people parking where they aren't supposed to, and long lines. The cashiers are not the best, they don't scan items or take credit cards, and people with checks hold up the line all the time! They have 2 express lanes, but one accepts checks, so this does not help. Also, the express is 12 items or less, but people get in them with a cart full of stuff anyway. But if you can put up with all that, you will find some bargains.

PROS: good stuff, cheap and sometimes REAL cheap
CONS: long lines, unsatisfactory cashiers

Surprises in this store always happen. While you may stop in for milk, you HAVE to cruise the 'close-out' aisles too. You may find that pair of salt shakers you wanted two years ago, but they were too expensive, so you didn't buy them, even though they matched your new dinnerware set, and here they are not at $25 but at $3.50! Pick up your prescriptions, school supplies, fresh produce, hairspray, good grief they do have a little bit of everything, and its usually a litle bit cheaper than elsewhere. BUT don't forget to check out the two or three 'close-out' aisles, you may find a treasure there!
