I lived in California for a couple months on business and this was the first grocery store we found and we were shocked at the prices, but it is just more than Wisconsin. But they were comparable to other CA grocery stores and the new one in Goleta is sooo nice. It is brand new and they have pretty much everything you could ever want. The staff is very friendly and they have the coolest thing. A person who works there just walks around and asks if you are finding everything and will show you were everything is. This is the persons sole job and it make shopping easier, especially if you are not familiar with the store.
recommend!

Prices are nice because it's a little cheaper than, say 76, Chevron or something. You can use your club card for a 3 cent discount too! With there only being one station, and the prices lower, it's always busy. Just the other day I waited for 10 to 15 minutes in line just to fill up my tank.

PROS:
CONS: Always busy. Wait in lines.

Vons is clearly trying to keep up with the new and improved image Ralph's has recently created, and though not successful at all stores, this Vons on Fairview has done pretty well. A good selection of food, deli items, fresh fruit and the like, I tend to shop here when I don't need the slightly more exotic foods Ralph's carries when Vons doesn't, or when I don't feel like paying Ralph's sometimes slightly higher prices. They also generally have good prices for cut flowers. But, of course, there is always the chance that the items I have been shopping for have happened to be more expensive at Ralph's at the time, and not always the rule. In general, however, I'll buy my bread from Vons.

PROS: Good selection
CONS: Not as pretty

The store is in a great location and they have a great selection on items that are the lowest prices you will find anywhere. They are friendly and fast.

This has a nicer interior than most other vons. It feels more like a small intimate place rather than with bright lights and shiny floors. I love when they give samples, especially of fruit, which is nice when you arent sure about ripeness.
