This is being reported as an isolated incident but local to our readership area.

        Correct. When I called the wine Mgr @ that location they said the entire dairy case was being checked. So some of the report is still ongoing.

        So I guess that's why Best has Kerry Gold butter packed like regular sticks of butter now. 4 bars in a cardboard sleeve. I was just happy that the price was so good!

          I've never seen so many CH's not from NJ take interest in local NJ news. Love of a good butter?

            Best Yet started here, but we are happy to share it with you! I take this personally, no matter where it happened.

              Then I'm doubly glad to have shared the news article with you here. I noted that the article took time to explain it was a localized issue being handled. I would hate to alarm all customers where Best exists.

                Oh yes, I appreciate it. They are like a home away from home for me, seriously. No other supermarket I could say that about. We've had a few love fests here on the Long Island board about them in the past.

            Update: they caught the dude, so you are no longer a "person of interest".

                To borrow from another thread, if you were to be ignored, would that make you a person of ignorance?....:)

                They arrested a store employee. And I'm wondering what he was thinking??

                Btw, I think Best Market is a good store... friendly employees (except this one, I guess!), good deli, cheese counter, and bakery, and good prices. It's a little out of the way for me, so I get there only about once a month.

                  coll and I were discussing Best Markets recently. Since the store is about 10 mins from my home and this is the NJ board I was sharing the local information with CH's who shop at this particular store. I have been but not recently and coll was discussing reasons (like you are) to return and give the store another try. I have an appt with their wine Mgr next week.

                Considering the obscene price of Gillette razors, it may be cheaper to shave with a stick of butter.

                  Not to mention that performance tapers off pretty quickly.

                  Good thing most people don't just bite into a stick of butter.

                  Unless they're at an eating contest, of course.
