Harveys Supermarkets

Harveys SupermarketsHarveys Supermarkets is a grocery chain with stores in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina that focuses on small-town values and sustainable, local products.

History
John Harvey created J.H. Harvey Co. LLC in 1950 in Nashville, Ga. and rapidly expanded the company into a chain of grocery stores, growing from 22 stores in 1981 to 70 supermarkets by the time it was purchased by Delhaize America, a division of food retailer Delhaize Group.

Dedicated to promoting local farmers, the Georgia-based retailer sells all its produce from Georgia farms. By selling local goods, the company believes, its store shelves will be stocked with fresher products and it will help sustain the local economy. Selling locally grown products also reduces shipping costs, which reflects on the products’ end price and helps the company reduce its carbon footprint.

As a sister store to Harveys, Food Lion LLC performs many of the day-to-day functions for the smaller chain. Food Lion handles procurement, distribution and back-office work. As a result, Harveys closed its warehouse in Nashville, Ga., in an effort to become a more efficient subsidiary of Delhaize America.

Harveys sells Sunset Farms meats, cut fresh every day by in-house butchers. Running weekly specials like “Cheap Chicken Monday” and “Pig Pickin’ Thursday,” the company offers customers the option to plan pre-cooked meals through the week at an affordable price. Harveys provides seafood from BSF and Sea Best Food, and sells First Fruit apples from Washington State – although not local, Harveys supports First Fruits because it donates apples to local food banks to help fight hunger in America.

The company also works with the Collect and Recycle Electronics program to further its commitment to protecting the environment. It allows its customers to create shopping lists online and sends out weekly email specials to reduce mailers. As with most grocery chains, Harveys does have its own discount program for loyal customers called Rewards Key.

    I went in Harveys today and there were at least 15 people waiting to check out with one cashier . I turned around and left. Sadly , I was able to travel a block away to Walmart and got out in less time than the friend of mine did at Harveys. I don’t mind paying a little more , but I do mind waiting forever to give you my money. CORDELE GA

    I am a long time customer of Harvey’s Moultrie and hate to say it but the customer service at Walmart is far superior to what I get at Harvey’s. The employees attitudes are awful and being disabled I can’t even get help getting my groceries in my cart or to my car. The store is disorganized and shelves are always bare of sales items. I personally will never set foot in this store again once our new Publix opens. Publix puts customer service at the top of their list just like Chik Fil A. So disappointed in this store.

    I live in lake City, Fl. and I shop at Harvey’s Store # 1671 and I take my mom to the store and she has to use a walking Cane to get from the car to the store, and some wise Guy has moved the shopping baskets from where the motorized carts are all the way to the other side, she doesn’t get around easily, and usually the shopping carts are right there when we walk in, but a guy named Chon Tillman has done a lot of unnecessary moving around in this store, I have heard a lot of customers complain about what he has done. he needs to move the shopping Carts back to the other side where they were to begin with, there is a lot of Elderly Shoppers who shop there and they cant walk from the parking Lot all the way to the other side of the double doors are where the baskets are now held now, Chon has gotten the Big Head and went to far and isn’t thinking of his customers. Put every thing back the way it is and that includes the Shopping baskets!! Please reply back at the email above. . . . . . . . Thanks In Advance

    Harveys is a clean store the cashiers always ask if you found everything alright.

    I live in Adel, Ga my husband and i visit Harveys a lot and the the service is good i’m sorry for the ones that had a bad experience. but so far i haven’t had it. there are lazy people that’s just on the clock and i feel that it should be dealt with, but Harveys in Adel, Ga is a good place to shop. every one is very friendly and you can get help. maybe if you start asking for the manager that might help and if the manager isn’t any better report it.again i say i’m sorry for the bad experience that you all had.

    Am some what terribly disappointed that our local Harvey’s in Reidsville, Ga, has discontinued carrying Claxton Poultry Chicken. We are a very small community, and a large part of the farms in our county are chicken growers, for Claxton Poultry. I feel the decision to no longer sell Claxton Poultry will force those of us who are growers, to shop outside our community and support other grocers/supermarkets that continue to support us!!!
    Thank You!

    Harvey’s has become the same “great service” as Walmart. As all know “customer service” has long been gone from Walmart – same goes for Harveys or at least the Harvey’s in Jesup, Ga. We lost our manager, Dale, a couple of months ago. We have no management now, and I mean no management at all. Some little short boy that will run from you if he thinks you want to ask something from him. My morning coffee drinking crew laugh about how lazy he is and he has been there a year or two. He just stands there like he is in a daze! You are overpaying him whatever he makes — Some of the cashiers have no personality– but some are very nice. One of the cashiers will start running the next person’s items before I get mine in a bag – yes she will not bag some items at all and WOULD NEVER STOOP SO LOW AS TO PUTTING THEM IN YOUR BASKET OR CALL FOR A BAG BOY IF A BAG BOY IS NOT THERE. I am in my late 70’s and a case of cokes (20) and a gallon of bleach are not as light as they once were. I got them in the cart and on the check out counter and I reckon I can get them off & back in the cart again. I can do it and will until we have a “Good Grocery Store” open in Jesup. We pray for a Kroger, Winn Dixie, Publix or anything with some MANAGEMENT. Y’all need some on the job, undercover, spying on this bunch. Again, y’all lost a good man in Dale (don’t know his last name). We understand that he got a belly full of the corporate mess up the ladder. But, no joke — you really have a mess here — I am printing this with copies so my neighbors and my coffee drinking buddies and gals will know what I sent you. We figure it will be deleted by your office watchdogs that clean up everything that is not ” What a great and wonderful little small town grocery store you are”. Well you ain’t ————-

    Harvey’s employees in Pearson, Ga. 31642 needs more training. You buy a product one week & go back the next week and you are told that they don’t stock it. They need to be more polite to senior citizens & be sure to give them their 5% off on Tuesday. Some of them don’t how or just don’t want to give it to you. Some will lie & they that they gave it to you, but don’t & then you have to go to someone to get it. I can’t wait until Walmart Express open up at end of this year.

    We buy a lot of meats at Harvey’s in Madison,Florida……we have found it to be fresh and good.

    I have been shopping the Harvey’s in Madison Florida for a long time now but for the past few months the meat dept.has gotten to selling meat that is no good. There has been 6 times in the past few weeks that I get home and the meat is bad.maybe its the management I don’t know but it has gotten to be very disappointing. Gas is not cheap for taking it back every time. Someone please check in to this matter.

    . thanks

    Happened to visit a Harvey's in Springfield, Ga, today. I couldn't believe the HIGH PRICES! Please! Get back to a Super Wal Mart ASAP! Why should I pay almost double in your store for what I can buy in a Wal-Mart Supercenter?
