Amazing how SuperValu has put the Shaw's name in the hole. Remember when Shaw's had low prices and kept the customers and employes happy. Since buying the company and with their "VOW" to lower prices, they have done the opposite. And now they are letting employees go to value the customers. Sorry poor tatics and will NEVER shop there again!
