I had the same experience every other complainer did. I signed for some sort of "free" trial and then these bastards started charging me $39.95 on my credit card. I now have to cancel my credit/bank card, get another one, and order my bank to block any further payments. Is there no way of getting a class action suit going against these scammers?


I signed up for a subscription for these bastards because I was confronted by a pay wall every time I wanted to read their Rachel Maddow/Bob Woodward interview. No: first, they told me to disable my ad blocker to read the story so I did that. But the paywall still went up. So then I subscribed - my bad, stupid me - read/listened to the interview. And then could not read another story because the goddamned paywall went up again. MOREOVER, THESE BASTARDS ARE STILL CHARGING ME MONTHLY! THIS IS A SCAM.


Great store for prices more reasonably than what you'd get at, say, Whole Food, or even regular supermarkets. Its meats are really good; my husband gets all his steaks there. And its canned crabmeat prices beat just about anyone else's. It has lots of other stuff like electric toothbrushes and clothing and paper goods.
We use it as our go-to food department store.


Mexican Culture is a really great restaurant, especially for orders in. Its chicken mole was the best I've eaten in years, and other things like tamales the same. It is very reasonably priced and orders are delivered incredibly quickly. I recommend it without hesitation.


I used to use eBay as a kind of on-line Filene's Basement store, and was quite happy with it until the past several months. I have received two defective items and one that does not fit, and I am having a heck of a time getting my money refunded on all of these. One is a steam vacuum cleaner that broke the third time I used it. The seller said they wouldn't refund my money; that since I'd had it for four months I had to go through the warranty process. In doing this I found out that this vacuum is from 2010, is no longer manufactured, and almost no service center services it anymore. I found one that does service this model and took the vacuum to them; they are to get back to me on repair price, but the vacuum is still under warranty so the warranty may take care of it. My preference was just to get my money refunded and I am going through this process under duress by the seller. The other item is a purse from China that arrived with a broken zipper. The seller made me take a photo of the zipper and then dunned me to change my negative to a positive review. Another Chinese seller whose product never arrived also has dunned me to change a negative to a positive review. Finally, I ordered a leather vest described as being a size 8 "small to medium." When it arrived it turned out to be more like a size 4. But the seller refuses to take the vest back and eBay is siding with the seller because the designation "8" appears on the label. But the vest is NOT as described. It is made for a child or a small teenager and I'm a grown woman who have to hold my arms up and then lower the vest onto them to put it on. In all three cases any legitimate store would have accepted the item back and refunded my money. I have bought many, many items on eBay and in giving me all this grief eBay has lost a very good customer. BTW: I note that there are many similar complaints against the company.

Easy to navigate. Wish you had more Sicilian and Mediterranean options. Maybe some anise...


It's a great place to get products you don't see everyday.
