The bargains at three suburban "extreme discounters" near I-694 are well worth a visit, even if you live south.

Do any of the mentioned stores carry Corelle dinnerware sets?

Deal Smart in Fridley didn't only carry food about to expire, it had shelves lined with already expired food... BABY food. It's one thing to have scratch and dents, but why push expired product on top of it? Been there 5 times and never once thought I found a value for my money. Cheap buys can be great, but I prefer value for my dollars.

Deal Smart is a joke. I didn't find any real deals there. They had a lot of stuff from Walmart and Costco. I saw a large Walmart store brand pot I had seen at Walmart and the price was the same as Walmart. They sold individual rolls of Kirkland Signature paper towels for a price that seemed steep.

I think I might take a jaunt out there one morning and make the rounds to check these places out in person. Appreciate the tips.

Dear bracystake and anyone else that compains but does nothing to find a resolution or repair, While shopping on all 5 of your trips to DEALSmart, had you ever bought to anyone’s attention at DEALSmart that there was expired food on the floor? I have done this on several occasions at Cub and Wal-Mart. I have watched to see if there is an immediate reaction to the problem and several times was very happy to see an employee go out and go through the shelf or cold case and pick things out. This shows that they made a mistake and took the time to fix the problem. It takes one person to make a comment about a store problem for it to be fix it but if no one ever mentions it, it may be there a few days. I do not see in your comment that you did anything like that. Thank you for your time and maybe some thought, Scooter

But they hope that you do not look for expiration dates or care. You get what you pay for. Is it legal for them to sell expired food?? Good question!

My advice: DealSmart is the best and cleanest of the three. Similar to Big Lots but cheaper. Discount 70 has some uneven pricing; the good deals seem to be confined to their closeout post-season specials--now it is on patio/garden stuff. But I just got a "great deal" on a solar light set that was tightly taped shut only to find some of the glass was shattered when I opened it. Plus the clerk had informed me that there was no return on final closeouts. Brand Name Deals is too grimy for my taste. The Army on Central is best for great finds but you have to visit weekly.

I had found a that at DEALSmart, you can return things up to 30 days from purchase. The catch is you MUST have your receipt. They have taken back one of my items and the cashier did this with a smile. I have never shopped there and seen the employees not smiling. It is very clean and bright. With a large selection and turn overs of new items weekly.
