Is ASPCA really helping animals, or helping themselves? CEO salary for 2018? $852,231 according to Animals 24-7.org "At the end of 2017, the ASPCA claimed $273 million in assets. Chief executive Matthew Bershadker took home $804,372 in pay for the year, including a bonus of $276,000, and received benefits of $47,859, for total compensation of $852,231."
$56 Million is spent on those tear jerking TV ads yearly.

Former excellent County Market now Shop 'n Save rapidly falling standards.
It is obvious enough that there is trouble here because they cut hours drastically (which is fine with me, no one here shops at 1 am.) but they are also advertising for new employees, you might think that all those from night shift would just move to day shift.
Unfortunately the quality control is also failing rapidly
NEW Sept. 25 I bought a pork loin, nice quality, cheap, perfect. Unfortunately, also bought several bags of potatoes and when I reached into the first bag I got a handfull of slime from a totally rotten potato. An unpleasant experience to say the least and powerful indication of poor quality control. In two decades previous that never happened once in that store.
The produce quality has plunged. back a few months ago I bought 2 bags of Sunkist lemons on Thursday 5/3, one bag was OK, the other had 5 rotten lemons. I bought 2 cauliflower, one was OK, the other was badly rotted, not just the minor surface black fungus you often see, but black liquid rot to the center, but not visible because of the wrap. Others should post, was this just my bad luck that half the produce I bought was spoiled?
Since buying chicken breasts a few months ago and finding them slimy I no longer buy any meat which I think was cut and packaged at this store.
Not just my opinion (although I did work with Julia Child and grew up in a hotel run by my parents) slimy chicken is spoiled chicken.
I try them occasionally in case of improvement but have been disappointed every single time. I mostly shop at Aldi and Walmart now.
