Meat and produce looks and tastes terrible....prices not that low...and the employees do not care to help the customer at all...in fact they are rude. I can only assume that they get paid the bare bottom and are treated like crap if they treat customers bad.

My seventeen year old daughter was attacked and robbed at the Food Depot on Hyw 42 and Dale rd on Jan 7,2011 as she payed for her items and proceded to leave the store and was attacked and robbed at the front door, She yelled an screamed somebody help me and please call 911 after the attacker had already taken her phone, a good samaratin saw what was happening an subdude the attacker, The good samaratin yelled I hold him until the police get here, only for the MANGER Dawn Chapman to put her out the attacker and the good samaritin out of the store... My child that has neaver been out alone, that has fault Childhood cancer since she was 10 years old has been tormented by her FOOD DEPOT experience.. How could any one see a child being attacked an don't call three digets...911 Food Depot was there to take our money, but if You get robbed or beatin in there store they wont even call three digets for you 911. I will neaver spend another dime with FOOD DEPOT again.. I will be out side of this location with a picked sign as soon as the weather promits.... I HATE the way FOOD DEPOT decided my daughters life wasn't even worth calling 911 for. But what gose around got to come around.... and Dawn and Tracy the two mangers that watched this happend to a child an faild to call her some help will get there day when them or there family need help an nobody think to call for them... I won't FOOD DEPOT out of my neighborhood.... I've call 911 for dogs that needed help... A Child Doe...

Whoever is giving Food Depot high ratings on insider pages obviously has ties with the store chain. I have always been resistant to shopping there until it became the closest grocery store to me. The Food Depot at Rockbridge Rd. and Stn MTn/Lithonia Rd. has the worst meat dept I've ever seen and I have seen some bad meat depts. I shopped there for the last time last night when I bought frozen fish that smelled horrible. I don't know why I continued to give them chance after chance. No mas.

I don't normally shop at FD, but I had a coupon for a free bag of Herr's chips. Now keep in mind, the coupon said FREE, had I taken this to any other retailer they would have taken the coupon, given me my chips, and sent me on my way. The good folks at FD charged me 13 cents, for what was supposed to be free! They seem to be one of the only grocery stores that carry Herr's chips, which is the only reason I went there in the first place. I imagine that most people shop there is because they have to. I don't plan on ever going back.

Krogers or Publix....please come to the Stn Lth Road area. Tonight was the final night. The service in Food Depot (Rockbridge) is horrible. They don't greet you and they are mad if you get in their lines. The look at you as if to say "What do you want." Tonight the girl did not open her mouth to even tell me the amount of my bill. Being in the service industry, I can not tolerate poor (is there another lower grade word for poor, because they deserve it,) service. I went to their website to complain to corporate but I did not find an email address(go figure)

Do Not Shop at this Store !! I Recently started going there since it is close to where i live.Until yesterday,I was totally unaware of their %10 discount at register, where you are charged an additional %10 plus a tax ! and tax 2. This can't be legal ! No one could explain it to me.I guess no one wanted to say "rip-off" tax,which is what it is.They set up these stores in economically challenged areas,the prey on unsuspecting shoppers.This would never be allowed in upscale neighborhoods.It's just plain robbery,and I will continue to protest this underhand scheme until something is done about it !!

I have shopped at the Food Depot in Woodstock Ga and am greatly disappointed in the meat dept.I purchased pork chops on one occasion and opened the package 1 day before experation date and the meat was rancid. I did not have the receipt and did not return the pork. I deemed this an isolated incidnet. This past week I gave Food Depot another chance! I purchased Beef short ribs and the experation date was July 14th. I opened the package of ribs on the 9th to prepare and the meat was bad. I returned all meat that I purchased without a receipt and received a store credit. I will not return to Food Depot for meat!!!

I have shopped at the Covington store for nearly 12 years now. I can tell you, if you don't mind shopping for store brands, you can get an over-flowing buggy of groceries for around 200 dollars.
If you need the name brand items, then your just spoiled, but they do have good sales on them as well.
Food Depot has saved me money for over a decade, much less expensive than the big chains like Krogers and Publix!
I can't understand what the problem is with the 10% a the register, I talked to a store manager once about it, he said they add the 10% to cover cost of their workers and that the cost on the shelf is what the store makes. I think the last time I saw a mark-up list for Publix it was sitting at nearly 30% on the shelf.
Great Store! Lots Cheaper, do the math!

Food depot is a good place to shop if you by store brands. They have low prices because they buy low quality.The produce is purchased locally so it is often very good. The meat department is very suspect.I have preformed work their many times in most of their stores, as im in the service industry.In all meat dept. I seen the same things, dirty cut tables, dirty saws, meat stored in trash cans, rodents are bad, would never buy meats their, ever!!! I will still however buy produce and sodas from food depot.

With signs throughout the store stating "!0% added discount taken at the register" - my first inclincation was that I was going to save 10% of my total bill at the register. Instead it was added in. I was disappointed to see misleading signs. The meat department was above average in service, however the remainder of the store was less than average on the variety of products.

First of all, I agree, why don't they just add the 10% to their pricing?
I do not feel that their groceries are any cheaper than Wal-Mart, in fact probably more expensive, with less diversity.

That said, the meat department is another story. I raw feed my dogs and have gotten wonderful bargins on beef, chicken, liver, etc. The butchers are helpful and friendly. They also mark items down even further when they are nearing expiration, but there is nothing wrong with them and I eat them as well as feed to the dogs. I'm not sure the quality is as good as Publix (where I usually shop for beef) but the chicken is brand name and the pork is the best (for price as well as taste).

I have to agree with Colleen, Food Depot's pricing strategy is sneaky. I was unaware of the 10% charge until I noticed it on my receipt labeled as "Tax 1" or something to that effect. In addition the circulars I saw recently said something like "Great prices plus 10% added at register!" Knowing what I know, of course that reads exactly like what it means, the 10% is additional. But if you had never gone there before or if your English wasn't that great, you'd be thinking you get an additional 10% off your purchase.
In addition they don't take American Express.

I and many family and friends travel miles and miles to shop at Food Depot. It is simply their cost plus 10%. Just this week I bought an Angel Food cake for 97 cents! There is nothing sneaky or deceiving about this company! The prices are worth the drive and the quality is great! Do the math and you will see.

PROS: Great prices!
CONS:

Here is a Grocery store that takes over failed grocery chains.
They claim to sell their products "at cost", but add a 10% charge to your reciept at the register. Although this is made clear through many signs around the store I'm not sure why they don't just add the 10% to the original cost.
In the end it doesn't appear to be any less expensive than other shopping stores.

PROS: Good quality produce
CONS: Sneaky marketing tactics
