Valu King Store Opens Near Columbus!

I found out today that Giant Eagle has an Aldi like store.  It is called Valu King!  The store will feature full fresh meat and produce departments, thaw-and-sell bakery items, packaged deli items, dairy, a frozen food section, and a variety of grocery items, health and beauty products; and beverages, including juices and soft drinks, beer and wine. It will carry a variety of value-priced brands such as Valu Time, Food Club, Full Circle organic foods, Top Care, and World Classic. In addition, it will offer special value deals on different national brand products throughout the year. Best of all they except coupons!!

One will open in Pataskala, Ohio and another on the corner of Livingston and Brice Rd in Columbus, Ohio on May 13th. Here is a few things I saw on the Valu King website:

  • Meat cut and ground fresh in-store
  • Fresh produce every day

  • Dollar zone - hundreds of items priced at $1   
I am going to check out this store.  I hope you too.  I will let you know how it is and a little about their pricing after the visit.
