My philosophy is "Why pay more than you have to?"

I think this is going to compete with the produce clearance racks of places like T&T. I am one of those that buy their $3 bags of slightly bruised apples to make apple chips. Anyone know if this app is worth downloading for those in Vancouver? :)

I found there was a delay in the app. It will notify you when the "pick up" is confirmed, then go get your items.

Now just integrate this with delivery services and you won't even have to leave the house. Imagine almost expired food delivered right to your door!

Not sure about that one...dollar store has cheap disposable items...I'd rather buy it for a bit more (on sale if possible) and not have to replace after a couple uses.

LOL@ Your Angry Inch…
Any Discounts on nearly expired beer or do the night crew and management consume it?
Discounts on EOL PC Mobile phones or Joe Fresh Underwear that others have tried on?
