    Grocery Store option

    We found the Ling & Son IGA store yesterday. This is a great option for anyone staying in Eagle or Palm Beach. Wider selection of food and quite a bit more relaxed shopping experience than Super Foods. SF is a great alternative for sure, but if you are willing to drive only a few minutes further, you will be happy with this store.

    i AGREE.
    although I go to SF, I go because sometimes I have to, not want to.

    with Lings, I am able to take my time, and not be stressed.
    sure sometimes the aisles are congested, but often times at SF the aisles are very congested.
    i think too with SF is that a lot of the products are dutch and shoppers linger and read the labels and sometimes have no idea what they are looking at.

    parking at Lings is also less stressful.

    the meats at SF are terrific. (in particular the kabobs)

    I like Ling and Son's... less crowded, easier to park. It's a great place for a quick stop to pick up a few items.

    Superfoods is a disaster to park. I like SuperFoods cause its a bit closer to us but Lings has more variety.

    I had a lady in car brush my arm in the Lings parking lot so I don't think I havethe same feelings on the parking lots...lol. We always taxi to SuperFood and dont worry about it. I found the fruit, deli, and cheese selections better at Superfood.

    We shop at super Foods because it is close. We taxi so no problem. We do wait until Monday as Sunday it is a zoo. We are happy with everything there.
