Greenville Grocery Stores

Here’s the low-down on all the grocery stores in Greenville.

Food Lion
No doubles or triples here. Everyone in Greenville knows Food Lion. They have low prices and decent weekly sales. Every now and then you’ll get opportunities to save big with coupons and sales, but the fact that they don’t double means that the coupon usually has to be $1 or more or the sale has to be really good to make it worth your while. Even still, FL is a great place to go for produce and other non-coupon items.

Harris Teeter
My personal favorite (not just because there's a Starbuck's inside), HT doubles coupons up to $0.99 every day! In order to take advantage of this you need to use a VIC card - their customer loyalty card. HT tracks your purchases through this card and limits you to 20 multiplied coupons per card per day. Needless to say, I have more than one of these babies! In addition, you are limited to 4 identical coupons per order. This rule, however, is enforced by the cashier and not all of them enforce it. In addition, Harris Teeter runs 2 types of promotions: Super Doubles and Triples.

Triple Coupon Sales: These sales usually run Wednesday - Tuesday and you can get some great deals this way! This is a great time to stock up on non-perishable and frozen grocery items, as this is where you'll find the best deals during these sales. The same coupon policy applies (just substitute the word "triple" for "double".

Super Double Sales: During "Super Doubles," HT doubles coupons up to $1.98 (instead of $0.99). Again, the normal coupon policy applies, but with the higher coupon value. Usually, the best deals are going to be with cleaning supplies and health and beauty items as these items are the ones with the higher value coupons.

RIP :-(

Lowe’s Food
Another grocery store that doubles up to $0.99 every day, Lowe’s is a good place to find some great deals. They also have triple coupon sales, but not as often as HT. Lowe’s customer loyalty card, the Lowe’s Green Card, tracks your spending and gives you points for every dollar you spend. These can be used later to get discounts on, or even free, groceries.

Piggly Wiggly
No double coupons here. Like FL, they have some good sales and it’s not a bad store for non-coupon items. I recommend "The Pig" (as we call it in Farmville) for meats and other non-coupon sale items.

A Random Thought

If you wouldn't have bought it to begin with, you didn't save money on it!
