Dingy, but Good
Staff is helpful and friendly. Store is older and a little dingy, but they deliver the goods. They usually have hard to find items and are good about helping you find them.
When you don't want to go to CostCo
Bulk items are here--mostly for restaurant businesses. You can find some terrific deals here, and I never see a crowd. There are many premade foods, as well. Nice selection of professional big pots and pans, etc.
good choices of ready dinners
There are ample varieties of pre-cooked dinners. They look good and fresh and are great for those nights you come home late from work and need to feed the tribe.
Best of Bashas
This is the best of the Bashas currently around. It is upscale, new and has more interesting choices than the standard Bashas.
snobby and expensive
You might find some product here, but you will pay dearly for it. Staff is unfriendly, if you are just browsing. You can eat here. It's good, but you will pay dearly for it, as well.
better than the Fry's on 90th Street
This Fry's Marketplace is much nicer than the Fry's a couple blocks away. Staff is generally helpful in finding things for you. Good product. Beautiful floral displays available for purchase.
appeals to the designer coffee klatch moms
Starbucks doesn't hold a candle to the coffee/bakery dept over here. The store is a typical AJ's--great product, high prices.
Best AJ's in town
This is the "celebrity" AJ's. You can find celebrities and/or their chaffeurs at this one. The butcher dept is the best around. Great quality, unfortunately, with prices to match. Some things are plain worth it, though.
Best Japanese Store in Town
A jewel of a store hidden in Scottsdale! Great Oriental (especially Japanese) food supplies and Dutch food supplies. Japanese cookbooks, cookware, knives, art books, painting supplies, dishes, and Kokeshi dolls sold here.
This location is not as upscale as its counterpart on Indian School. But the sales staff is friendly and helpful.
