How to get the most for your money at Valli Produce

Step 1: Do they have a frequent shopper card?

No.

Step 2: Do they participate in any catalina programs?

No.

Step 3: Do they have an official coupon policy?

I have not been able to find an official policy. However, Valli’s:

  • will take manufacturer coupons and they often have store coupons in their ad.
  • Their cashiers can be a bit funny about using them together, even though there shouldn’t be an issue.
  • They do not take expired coupons.

As always, check locally at your store for their policy.

Step 4: Do they offer an organic store brand?

I am not aware of any specific organic brands or produce carried by Valli Produce. That doesn’t mean that they don’t.

Step 5: What is their weekly ad cycle?

Valli’s weekly ad is valid Wednesday-Tuesday.  It often includes store coupons that can be combined with manufacturer coupons.

Step 6: Do they have any internal publications that offer savings?

No.

Step 7: Anything else I should know?

Valli Produce has the best pre-sales prices, hands down, of the stores in the area in general.  They have the largest selection of produce at the best prices and that warrants them a mention.  However, not all of your standard, recognizable brands will be available and many international brands will be.

The thing to know about Valli’s is that it is always very crowded.  It doesn’t matter what day of the week or time of the day.  You are lucky to find a parking space without driving around for more than 5 minutes. And maneuvering your shopping cart is a challenge, especially in the produce section.  But, if you’re willing to brave it, it’s not a bad place to shop. For me, with 2 small children, sometimes it is not worth the hassle.
