Foul Fowl at Waldbaums

Foul fowl at Waldbaums... again!

 The other night, I went to Waldbaum's in Westhampton Beach and bought 2 rock cornish hens to make for dinner. When I opened the package, they stunk!!! Then, I looked at the label, and saw that they had expired 5 days earlier!! I went back to the store to return them. Then I made another attempt at the meat department, as the meal still had to be cooked. Lo and behold, there was another rotten hen waiting to be purchased, along with a lot of other expired meats. Ridiculous!!! This has happened to me before.  On Thanksgiving 2011, I purchased a foul turkey. It's happened other times as well.  I've finally learned my lesson and would highly recommend that before purchasing any meat at Waldbaums, one checks the expiration date!  It's too bad they're the only convenient food store in town.  I think I'll travel to other more diligent and careful food stores in the future.  Shame on you, Waldbaums!!

I think Cor J and Cow Palace are great. But, sometimes I have to do a big shopping, for items that are not there. I will not go to Waldbaums anymore, but I do drive to Wild By Nature in Hampton Bays for all kinds of wonderful things (all natural, gluten free, nuts, etc). It's ridiculous that there are plans for a new food store in WHB, someone(s) who is ready to proceed, many homeowners (and taxpayers) who want it, and the town won't allow it!!! Maybe we should get a large group together and show up at the next meeting to support the new supermarket proposal. As taxpayers, we should be allowed to have a voice. This is America, after all!!

Shame on you, Waldbaums, is right!! But, unfortunately, they don't care enough to learn from their mistakes. Must be nice to have a monopoly in WHB! : /

The Center Morchies Waldbaums is just as bad. Over six months ago I picked up one of their "How are we doing" and wrote my complaints from rotten meat, to empty shelves the day of a sale and several other complaints. Never heard a word. I then called the main office in NJ and was informed that the flyers were old and had the wrong address on it. Told the person on the phone my complaints, along with name and address. To date still no response and conditions are still the same. I only shop there if there is a good sale on a packaged item like cleaning supples. Never buy fish/meat/deli there. Bottom line THEY DON"T CARe! Linda

I think they need some serious competition... They're too smug and too lax! YUCK!
