    Great Deals on Wine!

    It's NorthCenter, NOT Wrigley, so they do not need to have cold beer! Their lot IS crazy, so walk it, bus it, or take "el" to Addison Brown Line stop. Pet Supplies Plus right next door! Perfect!

    gets crowded on weekends and especially monday nights. often out of a lot until tues restock. support TJs - good prices, good unique foods, nice people.

    Decent liquor selection (Koval, Hendricks, etc.), 9:30 on a weeknight the place is silent. Perfect shopping time if you can swing it.

    Drive a small car! Their parking lot is crazy -- it's got a really steep two-way driveway and tons of concrete pillars that obscure your view.

    If you can't make it there in the afternoons on a weekday, go right when they open at 8am on Saturday. It will save you a lot of headaches. Read more

    In late summer, you simply must buy the boxed peaches. They are the sweetest, most wonderful peaches you will ever eat! Be sure to come friday or early Saturday before they run out!

    I had a cashier confirm it's best to get there before 4pm on weekdays to avoid the craziness. Love this store!

    They've expanded and are more roomy. But need to bring back cold beer. This is Wrigleyville, for goodness sake!

    The samples they offer at the back of the store always give me good ideas for new things to make...or at least you get a snack while you shop

    Bacon ends & pieces are super cheap ($2.99) and work phenomenonally in your cooking masterpieces! It's a freezer staple.

    Kate may wear crazy hats (she never wears a repeat?!) but she gets people through her line with amazing speed.

    Try to hit this place during low traffic hours, otherwise parking and congestion can make you kind of nuts.

    If you're not sure where to put your cart, just leave it in front of the bike rack.
