"I get tired of making the same thing for supper. AJ's has different things that not all stores have. Enjoyable staff are always smiling, something the other grocery stores is lacking. Thanks AJ's for coming to our town."

Your staff is wonderful! ...So pleased... good deals.

I stopped in today with my toddlers for the first time, and was so pleased! Your staff is wonderful, our checkout girl was just lovely & a young guy even loaded all of my groceries into my car while I wrangled my kids. (VERY much appreciated!) Everything seemed to be a very good deal, and some things I feel like I practically stole they were so inexpensive. I will be shopping here regularly!

Loved it. Saved a ton of money!

Loved it. Saved a ton of money on snacks and basics for my family. Does have a deli and frozen food. Not a place for a full shopping trip but excellent way to save money on a supplemental type of shopping trip... and you don't have to pay for bags like most surplus grocers.

10 Stars. I love this store...

If I could give 10 stars I would. I love this store. Everyone is pleasant. very organized and clean store. great prices. great selections. And they play Christian music. I will definitely be back.
