Conditions there are so bad it is a health risk to buy anything not canned.

Flat out rotten produce.Onions mushrooms tomatoes avacados cucumbers have all been rotten recently. They also misprice and overcharge.

The deli has switched to the lowest quality deli meats, and the meat department has expired meats in it of unknown origin.

If this is the best our town can do then let them go out of business before they sicken or kill somebody.

I went in to the market new to town and heard two of the staff talking about being sick but not being able to take off from work
they were in the produce dept,
One of them sneezed right on the lettuce without covering face at all. the only other time I went in to the market, the product I went to get had mold on it.
These guys need serious help.

Stopped into Speers the other day and went to the deli for some lunch and was greeted by two of the dumbest two women alive. One was older and the other younger, but very unprofessional, the older one seemed to be eating everything she could stuff in her mouth while I was trying to get someones attention and the young one seemed to be in some other world trying to create some culinary delight that no one has ever heard of. It is a DELI !!!! fix me a sandwich and send me back to work. Don't try to dazzle me with crap!!!! Go back to the backwoods and stay,

I have shopped at speers market for years while at my vacation home in Forestville (even during it's BAD time). I have always loved the small town feel and friendly people that work there, especially in the deli. Lately when I go in there the atmosphere has definately changed. The store itself looks GREAT!! The deli on the otherhand has gone WAY down hill over the last couple of months and the deli workers have the WORST people skills that I have ever experienced!! Like the other user I too have had problems with a girl named Megan, as well as the young man in the deli and the previous deli owner Anna. These three have completely ruined the welcoming atmosphere that USED to be speers deli. At least the long haired one (Suzie-?) is still there, but it looks like they got rid of her partner in crime-unfortunate, because those two were great together (very personable & friendly). In addition to the bad attitudes, the food and style that Speers deli used to be known for is completely nonexistant!! They have a new butcher (sometimes) that is very friendly, but other days it is Anna doing the meat cutting ( I will have to find out which days she is NOT there to do my meat buying). The salads are NOT nearly as flavorful and fresh as they used to be. in closing (finally!)...........JUST BRING BACK THE GOOD OLD SPEERS DELI!!
Pros: Nice Clean Store
Cons: Bad Attitudes...Bad Attitudes... BAD ATTITUDES!!!!

Great little store. Carries just about everything you need. Produce is particularly good and fresh. Deli is a little spare and sketchy as is the meat department. The overall prices in the store are high, but you save driving to Guernville or Sebastopol. I'll continue to do my shopping in town, but this place is great when you need something in a hurry.

The owner of this market told me one thing and the next time I was there I went there specifically for that deal and then was extremely rude to me, acted as if I was trying to put one past him, and walked away while I was talking to him not even caring that I was unsatisfied. Only go there if you want to spend $30 on milk, toilet paper, coffee, and Q-tips!

Mirabel Heights locals miss having a "real" small store; and the new signs proclaiming 'new owners, fully restocked shelves" proved today to be not as heartening as one would hope. Well "fully restocked" seems to mean that instead of 3 feet between each item (stocked in a single horizontal manner to try and suggest shelf density), there is now 2.5 feet. Liquor is now again available; a few weeks back even smokes and drink were no longer sold which seemed to be a sign that the market about gone. With the economy in its current state, the decidedly downbeat and forlorn atmosphere of Speers makes it a very sad experience.
No, not a "cover for another business", just a once thriving grocery store (really!) that has slowly gone down. One does hope that reality will catch up with the hype of the new "restocked shelves" banner, OR that persons fully energized will take it over. This community would patronize a good solid small store. I know, I used to. Still, hope springs eternal; most locals are pulling for the market and I suspect, like me, continue to go in every so often in hopes that they can make the business work.

Because my impression of a grocery store - even small local country ones - is that they sell, well GROCERIES.
Most shelves are bare. What items there are are off brands and one has to wonder about the freshness. You would be hardpressed to put together even the most basic of meals. Suppose you wanted to make nachos. You might find chips, perhaps an acocado and cheese, but no refried beans or salsa.
They employees are depressed and/or surly.

So back to my original question: what are they selling here? is there a code for asking?

Since the contracted meat department left, so have many other things in the store! Shelves at times are pretty bare, and produce is less that satisfactory--even for a mom-and-pop store. I bought 2 gallons of milk for nearly $10! Prices aren't worth the convenience, I'll drive to Raley's next time.

I went into the market with my $.50 recyling coupon redeemable at Speers from the recyling center across the street and to get coconut oil along with cash back from my debit card for my son's pizza day at school for the next day.

I went through the aisles locating the baking aisle and ascertained they did not carry coconut oil. While coming out of the baking goods aisle, I was asked by an employee if I needed help. I replied I was looking for coconut oil and had noted they didn't carry any. I proceeded to the back of the store to the dairy case for organic half and half that I remembered needing when checking my list which I pulled from my pocket after replying to the query for assistance.

I proceeded to the check out and noticed the employee who asked if I needed assistance standing about 10 feet away watching me. This generated a discomfort and I felt as if I was being monitored so I commented out loud to no one particularly that this appeared to be profiling. I looked in her direction and she said they didn't carry coconut oil. Another employee came up to the cash register as I was transacting my debit card and gave a pretention of being busy looking for something at that register.

This employee appeared to be the "back up" in case I was doing something illegal by paying for my items. I asked the cashier if he voted today? He responded no. The "back up" female employee by the cashier said they come in too early to vote without making eye contact with me. I stated that the polls stay open until 8pm and identified myself as a Forestville precinct captain.

I rarely shop at Speers even though it is local and very close to my house in Forestville. It doesn't carry the quality or variety of organic produce I most often buy from Olivers or Andy's Produce albeit more than 15 miles away round trip.The prices are high as it mainly serves the beer drinking russian river tourist crowd in summer and those who come to get items on the way home from work.

I noticed Speers carried firewood, which I needed, at $8.99 per case, and thought of returning to get later on after picking up my son from school. However, after experiencing the employee discomfort with my meer prescence and the chilly attitudes encountered, I will not return to spend my money. I'd rather pay more for gas to friendlier stores, like the Raley's off Guerneville and Fulton Road, where I am greeted with a smile and always asked if I need help to my car.

As I have more items to recycle, I guess I am forced to having the coupons redeemed at Speers, but I will refrain from purchases.
