Reviewed 6 April 2018

I was staring at a shelf looking for something when an employee (I think the manager or an assistant) stopped dead in his tracks (he was obviously on a mission) and said: "Can I help you find something?" I'm 70 years old and that's the FIRST TIME in my life that I can recall a grocery store employee, anywhere, offering to help. I didn't even particularly need the help......But I really appreciate the offer! Way to go Minier's! That's the way to keep a share of the grocery market.....even when faced with overwhelming competition from the big box grocery stores. Along those lines I LOVE the customer service counter where you can pay for one or a few items without standing in line behind someone who has a cart full of groceries.

They're trying their best to compete against the huge chains. Sometimes they do well with specials, but usually their prices don't compare. Too bad, but its my money and I need to spend it wisely. Great place to stop in for a few needed items.

Small grocery store with small expectations. Was so excited about their meats that I heard about. Nothing to save. If anything prices are higher on everything. Milk a dollar a gallon more than the Dandy down the road. Store was clean but the prices were way too high to make it a weekly shopping place. As for the meat, a lot was frozen and really didn't look that fresh. Wegmans had much better looking products. Checking out, only two cashiers but didnt need more. My person apparently didnt want to be there either and it showed. Maybe for one item if desperately needed but if plan to get more, plan on paying double.

Love this small town grocery store. Good prices for a little place and lots of one of a kind foods. Great atmosphere!

Miniers is a known staple in the Twin Tiers area, specially for their outstanding meat selection. While it doesn't have the selection that your large chain grocers do, it has a great stock of products and options that are convenient for any one or family.

Tip: check out their Miniers spices and bulk items. Awesome selection and price.
