I have been going to Saubel's in Shrewsbury for years. I can tell you the store is always clean! The deli, meat dept, bakery dept every thing is excellent. I have never had a problem returning anything if there was an issue. Customer service has always been excellent. My advice to anyone not happy with Saubel's is do not shop there go to Giant or Walmart! Have you seen Wal-marts bathrooms? If you have not check them out. I rather use an out house myself. Go some where else.

Here's how I feel: For 10 years, every time I buy produce at Saubel's I am disappointed. It is rarely fresh. I have returned many a rotten bag of produce to a grouchy old customer service person. Recently I shopped the Meat Sale at Saubel's and purchased a frying chicken that ended up costing twice as much as the one I got at Giant and still had in my deep freeze. The employees are friendly, but the management is not! I'm all for supporting the mom & pop, but enough is enough for me!

I've been going to Saubel's for over 20 years now & I don't know where these people who write the long stories about the bad bakery & bathroom experiences come from ?
Please go back to Maryland or go shop at Wal-mart if you are in such a hurry. Everyone I deal with there is pleasant. There are more unique type of foods that the other grocery stores near by.
The bakery is AWESOME, the cakes a great, the donuts are the greatest around, get your order in early for faustnauts. The people in the deli are always nice too, they do work hard, so you got there once when it was quiet & they actually are real people who do talk, an once of honey will do more for service than a pound of attitude.
Saubels does hire kids & they are glad for it. They have all been nice to me over the decades I have gone there. It is nice to go to an old tyme store and enjoy life. Put your shoe on the other foot & look at what they have to put up with people like you & your stinky attitudes. Please stay away, so when I do my shopping there I don't need to hear you whining.
Humm Think I'll go get a coffee & donut now, stop & say hi to everyone there.

The Good: My fiance loves the meat at this store. I am not a big meat eater so I can't comment personally but he thinks the meat is of a very good quality. The lines are almost always very short because nobody shops there.

Also good, they carry very reasonably priced and good quality live main lobsters and they are steamed with a timer so they always come out exactly right--never rubbery like in some restaurants. Get you lobster steamed, take it home, and have a delicious meal for one third the cost of Red Lobster.

The Best: (As if the lobster weren't enough.) They have an organics and herbs sections where you can buy a huge selection of loose herbs, spices, teas, beans, lentils, rices, etcetera. My favorite part of their store.

The Bad: The bakery is HORRIBLE. I have tried a chocolate cake from there and it was just awful. Had a very strange flavor as if there were some weird chemicals in it. Also tried a cherry horn and it tasted old n stale, and frankly, it tasted as though it would have been terrible even if it were fresh. The donuts are not good. I'd rather get one from anywhere else. And the cookies are just typical grocery store bakery cookies, in other words, not so good unless you have the palate of a 5 year old.

If you are in this area on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday then drive up the road to the Amish market because there is a much better bakery there where things don't taste like they are loaded with chemicals or old. The only bad thing I have had at the Amish market is the frosting on the cakes. The Amish bakery makes its own cake batter but not the frosting so the cake itself is very good but the frosting comes from somewhere else and is not good at all. But everything else is homemade and tastes like it came out of your mom's kitchen.

Also bad, there seems to be a lot of socializing and hanging out by the store employees who all look like they are in high school. I don't even know how the store can afford to staff so many employees who always look like they are standing around with nothing to do. So when you are shopping you sometimes get the idea that you are probably going to be gossiped about by a bunch of teenagers as soon as you are out of earshot. And the managers are kind of rude if you talk to them. I complimented a manager on their lobsters and he said, "Thanks" in a very disinterested, kind of rude tone and then turned away from me. WTF. Last compliment they will ever get from me.

Another bad, their vegetable area is small and has not been remodeled since it was built. They have a very small selection of vegetable items and it is hard to get around in.

Plus the store is really old looking and not in a charming way. It is like shopping in a $1 store or a ghetto-looking convenience store.

In all my years of a shopper in the Southern York County area I have been to a great many of the shops and stores the wonderful region has to offer. One thing can be said for most all of the shops there that the service and wonderful atmosphere provide a great shopping experience. While this story holds true for most of the stores there is one location that has isolated itself as an unfriendly, overpriced, and highly unclean market. That place would be called Saubels Markets. With there three locations in Shrewsbury, Stewartstown, and Whiteford you think one of the three would provided there shoppers with clean bathrooms and an overall clean shopping experience but you would think wrong. After catching my breath from the foul smelling bathroom I was then forced to wait for the women running behind the deli to stop talking to each other before they would take my order. This same kind of service was giving to me at both the bakery and checkout lines of the Shrewsbury location as well. Now you may ask yourself why I would turn to a website to express my displeasure, why not call the store and give them a piece of my mind. Well it may interest the reader to know that I did call the store to tell of my horrid visit and it is easy to see where they customer service skills are learned. Upon asking to speak to a manager I was transferred to a gentleman by the name of Earl Bell or at least that was what I gathered out of his muffled introduction. Indeed it seemed as if our entire conversation was carried on while his mouth was stuffed with food. Though Mr. Bell assured me this kind of behavior is not tolerated I still doubt I will be making a return visit when Giant and Wal-Mart offer better service and lower prices right next door.

I have been going to Saubels Market for years. They are locally owned and operated and it shows. They have a large selection of items in all departments but the thing that makes them shine is the Meat Department and Deli, the freshest products around.

Saubel's Market offers an excellent selection of meats and produce. They also have an on site bakery that is a must stop before leaving the store. We make a special stop just to purchase meats at Saubels as the quality is unsurpassed.
