I am hesitant to support corporate groceries over locally-owned ones. I am not crazy about the selection here, but I have never seen so many happy employees at a single grocery store. The lady that checked me out noticed that I had some unbought items still on my WIC balance with one day left in the month in which to buy them. She took the time to turn off her lane, and go look through the store to try to find the item. Because they were out of the item, she and the manager found something comparable in the HEB brand. The WIC card wouldn't cover it, so they just gave it to me! While I was waiting for them I had time to look around, and noticed that most of the employees in the check-out aisles were smiling genuinely, and chatting with the customers. One was even just listening to a mature customer talk about "old-times." I sometimes see service this good at Wheatsville, but for HEB, it was a first for me.
