Very Good best meat and fresh bread in Brantford
Trevor from the Deli is RUDE!!! I am NEVER shopping at this wonderful store which I loved and supported for many years, because of this mans rude attitude and actions toward certain customers!!!!
I love Brant Food Center for their meat, baking and salad bar and deli sandwiches.
I do have a computer but still like to sit down, relax and read the ads[flyers in the paper.
Why just not get in the car and go to see what they have? You already know why you like them. I do not drive from store to store if they have specials, not only a waste of time and gas, but 95% of other items you purchase have an inflated price. So purchase what you like from Brant Food and go to your other favorite store for your canned, frozen, cleaning aids, etc.
I love the store simply for their meat choices and their baked goods. I find their canned and dried goods are too expensive, vegetables in season are okay... not great but out of season ones are pricey too. You want a good butcher shop though... this IS your place!!
I know it is a good store and I know they are old-school, however, at some point in time they will realize how much MORE business they would get if they would only advertise their weekly specials online. If they don't want to go to the trouble of creating their own website, I understand......but Facebook is free.... free and easy.
Come on Brant Food Centre!! We love you but throw us a bone! Either that or I will keep making my trips all the way out to Farmer Al's on Rymal Road in Hamilton. They advertise.
Regarding access to a flyer online...my exact sentiments are expressed above. I have been searching for a few days for a flyer online and ....I guess there is not one available. That is unbelievable in this day of electronic media.....Wow.
The meat department is fantastic. You are able to pick out exactly what you want and have wrapped how you need it. The prices and quality are amazing. The bread is outstanding.
I would shop there more often if I had access to the weekly ads.
I agree, would like the flyer online because I live in a condo and don't always get the ads. I'd make a trip here, if I knew the deals. Not knowing I don't make the trip
Great little store and usually has a lot of good specials..They need to upgrade this website in order to view their weekly flyer. A lot of people cant be bothered to look thru those flyers you recieve in the paper. Am sure this might generate more interest.
Great little store, but they need to clean it up a bit. It needs a thorough cleaning from top to bottom. Have never had a problem with their food. Good prices and friendly staff.
in response to: very poor customer service on the ...
Really? I just called there to talk to the butcher shop. Services was....as I expected....perfect. To the point, courteous. I'm heading there right now from Simcoe. I LOVE this place. Reminds me of 'the old country!!"
I go out of my way to drive past other Grocery stores like Zehrs, Zellers No Frills because it has fresh bread made on site. However, I am harassed about my shopping bag. I don't use a cart or a basket, I like to use my bag, its handy, I am already carrying it. But they don't want me to use my bag. I ignored it the first time, today I flatly refused outright to use a non existent basket. They are driving me away not making me feel wanted as a customer
very poor customer service on the phone, just wanted to know the store hours and then they hung up on me!
The worst place in Brantford, stinky deli, the meat is defrosted several times and sold as fresh.
The back is so dirty you want to vomit. The meat cases are never washed and smell like rotten meat.
Don't go there, the meat at the deli is not fresh. Neither is the cheese, the cheese I got had mold in it! There are so much flies flying around, it's nasty that, that is around my food.
I love brant foods! the sales, food & amazing service ! But you need more stuff because i get mad at the fact i have to go somewhere else for a few things you dont have.. please update store & bring back the sandwitches! they were the best part about the store! Thanks!
Carly, I've never met you before today but your enthusiasm and sandwich making skills are impeccable. You showed up to work, slapped on a pair of gloves and the place lit right up. Great Job Girl. Ann
GREAT lunch deli!!! Can't be beat! Excellent quality at great prices.
AMAZING! Never knew about this wonderful place until I moved into the little pocket in the middle of Brantford. Love love love LOVE Brant ood! How cool is it to get a WAY BETTER sandwich than any sub spot for only $3.00?? Or the great LOCAL produce? A salad bar??! Better way to live. )
Worked in Meat Dept for 3 years, To be fair the place was overall "good" but I would say you should re-evaluate the place before you call it "great". I'm surprised they passed the food safety inspection.
Very good deli and baked goods. I agree that the everyday selection is not the greatest. Awesome, inexpensive place to get a good lunch (sandwiches, soups, hot meals, salad bar, pizza, etc). My biggest and ONLY complaint is that the store ALWAYS smells like wet dog. It is rather off-putting and I can understand why it would make some people not return.
Not to mention their amazingly priced deli sandwiches... just grab a bun from the bakery and take it to the deli and get whatever you want put on it... only costs appr. $2.75!!! We go to Brant Food Centre for lunch quite a bit!
I love this store, as they have a great variety you don't find in other grocery stores. Their herbs are top quality and generous. The cheese counter can't be beat and the fresh meat area is one of the best I've seen. We shop there every week and ALWAYS find something different and wonderful.
I would rate it excellent!! Love their bread and their meat! I live in another town, but i come all the way to Brantford, and yes! to Brant Food Centre at least every 2 weeks to shop! as for the one comment about being disorganized, NOT so! and for the comment from
One of the few remaining independents. Personally I hate going into the bigbox stores, hate all the searching, hate the prices, hate the people, hate the lineups, and hate the corporate branding.
If you're like me, you'll love BFC. They're not great for everyday dry goods, but when it comes to their butcher department, produce department, breads department, and even their dairy department, it's a great little store.
Their Italian sausage is great, when I've served it to guests, they have raved about it. The produce is reasonably priced, and you can find stuff there which is harder to find in the bigbox stores And of course they bake breads onsite daily, for a very reasonable price.
I can come out of there with piles and piles of bags, and only have spent maybe $40, whereas when I go to one of the other national name-brand stores, it is usually double, for the same amount of food.
I'm all for keeping the little guy alive, support your local independent!
Oh.. and one more thing.. every week they have some kind of meat on a really excellent sale.. like boneless chicken breast, or rump roast, or prime rib, etc. Great time to stock up. Sometimes it's an 'early bird special' and only on sale for the Saturday and Monday.
brantfood centre is not an italian store. Tehy are all nazi bastards in deisguise! They work you like dogs and have no managmenet. They do what ever make them feel good and doesn't care about any of their employees.
