The biggest score in Ottawa is deli meats at 80% off and salad kits for $1-2. Where are the $1 wings and boxes of 28 green peppers???

Tonight I got potato chive focaccia bread 5.49 reg price for .74 and sabra sweet potato dip $5 for 1.50. They also had a very large box of avocado for $5, but they were very ripe. They have a few others buying flashfoood, but it is very few.

I am pretty mad at the other loblaws. I bought a bunch of stuff at it eg hummus for $1, went there, and the customer service area was closed "staff called in". The manager just shrugged when I said i was there to get my stuff. Flashfood did refund

I've had this happen and another employee got my items. Not sure why the manager didn't do this - I'd have followed up with a complaint.

Oh I sent a complaint. FLashfoood responded fast , refunded, and said they would have the area manager follow up with the store. Loblaws...didn't respond at all.

Can you tell me how to contact? I also had a bad experience. I checked on the app and couldn't find a way to do it.

In the app click the 3 bars (top L) then Help.

Loblaws had focaccia $5.50 for .74. I bought, went to loblaws (the close one this time)...store is open, but customer service isn't. "we close that an hour early now". Of course, now it is passed the best before date and wont be available

No problem with flashfood, I would now prefer they found a different store to operate in

Curious if anyone's tried picking up an order on someone's behalf. No where on the site does it say that it's prohibited.
