I have patronized Village Corner on numerous occasions (both as an undergrad and professional), and must say I have never encountered the rude behavior mentioned by the other poster. Yes, they do have a "wall of shame" composed of fake IDs. But really, if you get caught, you deserve that kind of ribbing.

As for the merchandise, Village Corner really does have a pretty decent selection of food (though a little overpriced). But their wine selection is quite good (not as good as Big Ten, though). I have also noticed a fairly large cigar selection, but haven't really taken the initiative to investigate further.

All in all, Village Corner is a decent store within walking distance for much of the campus area.

Who needs Meijer's or Kroger when you have Village Corner? Village Corner has the best selection of beer & wine on Michigan's campus. And that doesn't mean 30 packs of Swill for $10.
Village Corner carries a fantastic selection of domestics, microbrews (their selection of Michigan microbrews is especially good), as well as imported beer. Best of all, most of the imports can be had singly, so you can try one before you commit to a more expensive six pack.
Their wine selection is also very good; I've noticed they have an especially good selection of South American reds.
A friend of mine has remarked they also have a good selection of cigars, if you're an aficionado of those.
Prices are very reasonable.

Your mileage may vary. Now, how many times do you hear that these days? Never were truer words spoken, though, when it comes to this shop. If you're an older wine fan or professional, you will be bowled over by the selection and knowledge here. Even the vibe in that part of the store is considerably more polite.

If you're an ordinary shopper grabbing convenience items, it's likely you'll have a different reaction to the place. The "Village Corner" cashiers have had the angle on rude for many years, and are proud of it, like little kids who have learned their first swear word and can't wait to share it with everyone.
I remember one cashier loudly announcing that I shouldn't eat a Tootsie roll, and describing in great scatalogical detail what it reminded him of, in a long, vapid and ultimately pointless attempt to embarass me. As a local, I had friends in high school and at the U who had similar experiences; minding their own business on a weeknight, some cashier decided to "get their goat" by insulting their taste in food, comic book, hairstyle or just generally acting up. Their "service" is a sick joke and Ann Arbor's worst kept secret. Those with social anxiety and short tempers should shop elsewhere; everyone else, prepare to paste a bored expression on your face for the inevitable onslaught.

Village Corner has its biggest advantage: convenient location. It is even right across the street to the University Towers Apartment, which has more than thousands of residents. They can always go to the village corner to get something they want. It is really good if you suddently lack of something, but definitely not good for weekly grocery shopping. They don't have enough fresh food, and what they have is usually more expensive.

Village Corner is a good place to go for all those last minute purchases. If you can't make the drive to Meijers or Krogers, the VC is the place to go since you can pick up virtually everything you need there. While it is a little pricier than a supermarket, you're definitely paying for the convenience. For a convenience store VC has a great selection, including alot of canned items, fresh items, and a large wine and alcohol selection. Sometimes the staff isn't the most friendly, but it's a great place to run in and out.
