    Start with a small load if you've never used the self checkout before!

    I think people are too hard on this location. It's very conveniently located, the staff is friendly, great place to meet new people, and we all shop there once in a while!

    If you think this Rainbow Foods is sketchy you probably shouldn't have left your small town.

    Don't be too hard on Uptown Rainbow. I suggest getting the readymade pizzas near the deli over the frozen ones. Cut it in half (or quarters) and cook the other chunks another day!

    See how long you can hold your breath to avoid the stench of the unbathed while you pick up the items you forgot at whole foods.

    Really great salad bar! The deli is always really good and reasonably priced. Also, love the fresh meat and seafood too. Rainbow has made some really great changes in the last year.

    A great place to observe the human species while food-gathering on this place on earth--one of the more liberal districts in america. Hug

    Sketchy, long lines no matter the time of day, expensive and yes, strange unbathed people hang out here! Only plus open 24 hours, but fire that I go to Kowalski, also 24 hours and much better quality

    If you want banana chips avoid the prepackaged ones. The bulk isle has them for much cheaper!

    They seem to have stock issues with the transition to Cub. Also the prices are significantly higher than what Rainbow had. Might as well go to Lunds.

    Working out the kinks transitioning to Cub...higher prices, more pre-packaged produce, fewer choices.

    Probably the jankiest grocery store I've ever been to in terms of shady people hanging about. But I can't justify spending more for less at LUNDS. Uptown problems...

    Some parts of the store are very seedy, and the staff is inflexible & unhelpful. They need to keep their service center open later in case of bus emergencies.

    It can be hard to shop in the mornings as they don't get out and stock the produce and some shelves until after 9.

    Careful when driving past the front of the store. There are posters blocking the window so you can't see who's looming out of the store to step into the crosswalk.

    The tuna croissant sandwiches from the deli case are great! Only problem is that by the end of the night, they are usually gone. So I get roast beef, which are still pretty good.
