Charlene J: Were people referring you to Festival/Carnival or Bay's? Bay Food Market at 301 S. Maple Street is not the same company as Bay's Carnival Foods, nor do they or Bay Packing supply meat to Carnival.

NASTY meat, NASTY deli. Brands that I have never heard of before. 90% of the shoppers look like they just rolled out of bed still wearing pajama pants! The register and baggers would rather talk to each other than say hello to you.
Decent price on meat and fresh fruit and veggies if you dont mind a lot of grissel and have no taste buds!

Have people in Lancaster never had good meat? I moved here from southern ohio about 10 years ago. Everyone I talked too in town just raved about Bays meat at then Festival now Carnival Foods. So I went there over the years. I have never gotten good meat there. Its always past its prime and tough and full of gristle. I don't think it is grade A meat. I think unless its on special its way too expensive. The rest of the store is dingy and has a subpar feel about it like the seamy underbelly or something. I don't thing Carnival has any bargins. As some one mentioned they are the highest in town on laundry detergent and other things. The hot foods and deli look less then appealing and I think dirty too. NO thanks I will go to Kroger or Meijer.

This store is "ok-ish" they have a a lot of stuff but nothing that great. I think they are higher than the other stores in town unless they are having a sale. They have a lot of special coupons that they sent out in their flyer but are not available at the store. But I am a busy woman and I never remember the coupons so I miss out. I don't think their meat is good at all. Its cheap and tough and the ground beef (any variety be it ground round or hamburger) is full of fat and water and fries up to nothing. I have to say Kroger meat is 100's times better. They have a lot of stuff as I said but nothing special. The only things in the meat department I buy there are the ham loaf and the pork skin to make cracklins (my hubby loves those and you can't get them anywhere else). I can make a better ham loaf than Carnival but I usually don't have the time or energy to drag out the food processor and do all the work. Their laundry detergent (unless on special) is the highest in town even high than Giant Eagle and they gouge you big time at that store. For my money Kroger has the best meat bar none and Aldi fills in the gaps.

This is a store now that unless it is a dire emergency I will not be shopping there anymore. I am absolutely thrown at the way that carnival's deli is. There are two older women at night that when they are working you at least get decent service and now that I hear that let one woman go I am done with them. Why bother to buy anything that is on sale when you have to wait while the one girl is in the back and you can see her there and she does not even bother to stick her head out at all when the lines are around the corner. For the few pennies that are saved it is not worth my time.

I've been shopping @ Carnival since around 2000. They have the best cuts and quality of meat. I discovered them while living in Carroll, where we recieved their ads. I have since moved to Groveport, where they were able to send me their store ads to my home. I drive 'down' to Lancaster once a month and just buy their meat. Their ground chuck and ground sirloin is the best.
The prices on meat can't be beat either. Towards the end of each month they have a meat sale, we're talking 89-98 cent chicken breasts people ( frozen, but ok with me). Check out their website for store ads and coupons too!
I would have to agree with the other lady about the coupons. They are only honored at face value, and they do not match competitor ads/coupons.

The store is owned by the same person who used to run Bay food mart on fair avenue and its a given that they have the best meat selection in town. The new store is clean, well lighted and the quality of the selection keeps me shopping at this location year after year. The regular prices on most items are frequently lower than the other grocery stores in town. The only thing I do not like is that the coupons are only redeemed at face value. I would love to see them go to double coupons, it would just be one more reason to shop at this store

PROS: Great meat selection, prices below the local norm
CONS: Coupons are only worth face value

This is a real nice grocery that doesn't sell alcohol. Meat selection is really nice. One of the better ones in Lancaster. Produce is usually fresh
