Which store(s) you do not like, and why?

For me, I do not like costco because too crowded and easy to over spend. Also, do not like amazon because of a bad shopping experience. What about you guys?

So you don't like Costco because they are successful at what they do?

Sporting Life at Sherway Gardens. Since they downsized and moved to the new section everything feels cramped and messy. Also, their prices are too high.

H&M sells bad quality clothing. Sephora because the different smells is nauseating, and the bright lights and crowds makes me more nauseated. Starbucks because one location ruined it all for me.

Loblaws because they don't have a diverse selections of brands (altho, I shop at RCSS just because it's close and convenient but it's still not my favourite place for groceries).
Shoppers Drug Mart because it's overpriced.

I don't like Metro, for a grocery store I find them to be way overpriced. They sell the same quality items as their competitors (like Loblaws) for a much higher cost and their sales are always lackluster. Also their generic brand, Selection, is not very good. Every Selection product I've bought tastes significantly different from the brand name for about the same cost despite the fact that I find No Name and Compliments brand products to be, mostly, very similar to the brand name at a lower cost. Overall, I can't understand how Metro makes money when they don't seem to want to compete with any other chains.

I'm not a fan of Safeway ever since they closed a bunch of their Vancouver locations, mostly on the east side. Before selling the land they wrote restrictive covenants in the land titles prohibiting any grocery stores from operating in those locations ever again. Canada Safeway no longer even exists as a corporate entity but these covenants remain. How this can even be legal is beyond me.

Nearly all stores... because of the internet.

But seriously, Wal-Mart... or whatever they are going to call themselves next year.

CO-OP. Even when on sale, still more expensive than Superstore. Safeway is a close second, as well as all other brands related to it, like Sobeys, IGA etc.

I don't like Evernew. They only sell ladies clothing, and I'm a dude.
