Hy-Vee 4

I rarely shop at Hy-Vee because the prices are a little too high but I gave them four stars anyway because the service is outstanding. Not just at one location but at any Hy-Vee store anywhere. You can walk in half-drunk at two in the morning and the clerks will still smile at you, guide you to what you need, listen to your complaints or ramblings and provide high quality customer service. As someone that worked in various service industries for more than twenty years, I appreciate good service.

Hy-Vee has a great selection. I could easily do all of my grocery shopping there if it wasn't for the prices being a little on the high side. But if you need something quick, it's definitely the place to go, they're always open, and as long as what you're looking for is a reasonably normal food item, they will have it. The checkout lines are usually fairly short, as they almost always open more registers when the lines start to get long. While I do very little of my grocery shopping there, their liquor store is reasonably priced and has a great selection, and I always buy gas at the Hy-Vee gas station because they give a discount if you have a Hy-Vee receipt.

UPDATE (and spelling corrections in review above): I've moved since writing this review, so I no longer buy gas at Hy-Vee anymore, as the store nearest me is too small to have a gas station.

I needed help with a newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes child, and they were wonderful. The isles are wide compared to the "big box" stores and the employees are great. And the prices are low! Very highly recommended!!

I've never seen so many pricing tricks in a grocery store. Retail deception has become an art form. I call them Hi-Fee. Be on your guard, it's tricky.

Selection is usually very good. If it's not available, they will special order or look elsewhere. Meat grade is OK; meat area service mostly very good. Other in-store services are a positive. Check-out is timely but sometimes lack sackers. Deli's are popular and generally of excellent quality. I have shopped Hy-Vee at least 20 years; try others and come back.

HyVee is an employee owned chain located in Iowa, Nebraska and Missouri. Excellent prices, clean, and very fresh produce and meats. I definately shop here before some generic national chain.

When Hy-Vee took over the Schnuck's stores, they turned them into very stark, white, hospital-looking stores. They are too bland and quiet. Not eye-appealing at all!!!

Hy-Vee has really gone down hill. Hy-Vee has the worst produce and worst deli I have ever seen. Everything about Hy-Vee stinks, they are the most unsanitary stores I have ever seen
