Oh how I miss my Raley's! I moved to Salt Kace City in October, and nothing is quite the same :( Yes, their deli and their produce are quite a cut above! It sounds like you still frequent their isles - I'm so jealous!
I love Raley's, unfortunately there aren't any in my neighborhood. I like their hot deli food as it surpasses Safeway and Albertsons/Lucky/Save-Mart. They have in store baked goods that actually taste decent.
