Shopping at HARVEYS Supermarket in Alma, Georgia

We are out of milk and bread and have just two eggs in the refrigerator.  Eric pulled the motorhome into the HARVEYS Supermarket parking lot in Alma.  He will shop while I  find out if the store has a customer discount card.  If they do, I'll apply for one and then take some pictures.

HARVEYS Supermarket...

A new grocery store
to explore...

A quick search of my blog reveals I've visited forty-two grocery stores since January 2013.  I was so taken with the Piggly Wiggly Store that I've explored grocery stores and supermarkets to see what's similar and what's different.  Some stores are small with just one location, like Davenport's Galaxy.  Some are large supermarket chains with many locations like Publix.

HARVEYS offers the Hometown Rewards Program.  I was given a card and sent to a computer terminal to input information for my new card.  This took about three minutes, and after handing Eric the card, I was off to take some photos.

The Wall of Values

A great place to start
a shopping trip

The Bakery & Deli

Fresh Fruits & Vegetables

The shelves are
well stocked.

Quality Fresh Meats

The Pet Care Aisle

Frozen Foods &
Crock Pots

Dairy Products

Don't forget the milk
& eggs.

HARVEYS has a nice selection 
of Beers & Wines.

Everyone who shops here
gets a thank you.

I put the smaller version of
this card on the key chain 
we keep in our Jeep.

HARVEYS Supermarket is a great example of a grocery store with basic services.  It doesn't have a pharmacy or a bank branch.  There's no coffee urn with fresh coffee or a cold case at Check Outs with milk, eggs, juice, butter and margarine.  Come in, get what you groceries, pet foods, household cleaners.  Other stores provide shoppers with everything else they need and want.  

A search of HARVEYS Supermarkets provided me with information on the BI-LO Holding LLC family of grocery stores:  HARVEYS Supermarkets, Winn Dixie Grocery Stores and BI-LO Grocery Stores' combined number stores and employees makes BI-LO Holding LLC the fifth largest conventional supermarket chain in the United States.
