My Publix Trip & George Jenkins Award

I'm sure striking out with deals this week. I missed the Poise last Saturday and haven't seen it all week. When I checked back on my special order from a nearby store, someone had put the product onto the shelf and it was sold, and now there are the dreaded green tags on the shelf meaning the warehouse is out. I may just go to Sweetbay and see if I can get some there since they'll accept Publix, SaveALot coupons and the MQ. I also missed the Nutri Grain Crunch deal, but eventually I'll get it because they will issue rainchecks for that. In my opinion that's just as good. Both stores I checked were out of the Nutri Crunch bars but had plenty of the fruit cereal bars. And of course all the Alka Seltzer, Sundown Vitamins and Nivea deals are out of stock too.
 
I did manage to get some of the last Mueller noodles and also some Yakisoba noodles. To get my order up to $25 I threw in some of the Old Wisconsin Beef Summer Sausage 6 oz packets that were marked at $3.69, but they rang up at $3.99. So, I got one free for the Publix Promise so that actually put my order negative, which totally freaked out the young man who was my cashier this time.

Anyway, I also wanted to mention that despite my occasional frustration with shopping at Publix, I do love my neighborhood store. In fact, so do a lot of people since the Store manager, David Tapia was awarded the George Jenkins Award. I also have had the pleasure of meeting and successfully resolving a customer issue with the District Manager John Campbell. Both of these men really enjoy their jobs and will do the customer right. 
David Tapia, the manager of the Terrace Ridge Plaza store in Temple Terrace, was one of five managers to earn the 2012 George W. Jenkins Award, named after Publix's founder. John Campbell, district manager of 10 stores in Lutz, Tampa and Temple Terrace, received a President's Award.Tapia joined Publix in 1990 as a part-time front-desk clerk in Tampa and was promoted to store manager in 2004. He has led the Temple Terrace store since 2010.
"It makes me proud to hear so many customers say, 'That's my Publix,' " he said. "I have a great group of supportive associates, and we're the face of Publix. It's up to us to make sure every customer enjoys their shopping experience."
Campbell began his Publix career in 1976 as a part-time grocery clerk in St. Petersburg. He became store manager in 1988 and a district manager in 1993. Publix president Todd Jones described him as consistent and dedicated to helping store associates be successful.
