Highlands Ranch - Business Review



Enclosed you will find our review of a local supermarket in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.


Review of "King Soopers " Supermarket Back to top
The supermarket "King Soopers" opened in early 2001 at this location. In the second half of 2001 we started using this store on a permanent base for our grocery shopping.
 
Service: In most cases the service has been very good. Occasionally it takes a long time for staff to respond to your needs. This happened in different departments of the store to us. Overall these incidents are not representing the majority of our visits and they have not made us consider other options. Sometimes the waiting period at the cash registers is a little long and staff is a little slow to respond. We buy Deli meat quite often and found the staff in that department to be extremely friendly and helpful.
 
The Store: We always found the store to be clean. The lighting is sufficient and bright enough to make a friendly impression. We have seen other stores where it was too dark or the light situation has just not been satisfying. The store offers branches of Starbucks Coffee and U.S. Bank which makes life very convenient. We use both services a lot. We actually use U.S. Bank for our personal and business checking accounts as well as we have our mortgage with them. Starbucks offers the 8th coffee free of charge when making a coffee purchase with your King Soopers Card. If you buy dairy products - watch the expiration date of items. We have seen more than one item expired and in some cases even the expired item was still on shelf 10 days after the expiration date. Carefully looking you can avoid these issues.
 
Pricing: Prices are not on the cheap site. For some items we had to switch to Wal-Mart or Costco as pricing at King Soopers was just ridiculous high. We live in an expensive town - I expect higher prices. But price differences of almost 80% to 90% that just is not right. If you have endless funds available it might not bother you but for a family with just an average income this can make quite an impact. We always put into consideration that driving to Wal-Mart is a little more and you also lose some time. But if you work with a shopping list of items like we do, it is easy to save $30-$40 per trip easily. We rather go out for dinner for that kind of money.
 
Overall we like shopping at this King Soopers location. It's not perfect but very convenient.

Points: 8 out of 10
