Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any information on product recalls?

Your health and safety is important to us. When a product recall is issued we remove these products from our stores as quickly as possible. Should you have any questions about any item we carry, please speak with your local store manager. To view the latest product recall information, please visit recalls.gov (also located on our Contact page).

My weekly ad doesn’t arrive until later in the week, why?

Our weekly ad is distributed by two methods: 1). In newspapers, our goal is to deliver them Tuesday or Wednesday to people who subscribe to them or 2). via mailbox through Red Plum (IL) or Your Times (IN), which are sent to consumers who don’t subscribe to the paper. Sometimes mail copies of our weekly ad may be delivered by the Postal Service later in the week. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee when the ads arrive, as this is outside of our control. Our vendor partners are in regular contact with the postal service, but often we are unable to determine the exact amount of time it makes for our ads to make it to your mailbox. Please speak to your newspaper delivery person or mail carrier directly if you believe they should be delivering your ad sooner.

Q: What happened to the Weekly Ad Sneak Peek? Why can’t I see the Sneak Peak buttons?

Please reload and refresh our weekly ad web page. Frequently web browsers cache content sometimes causing older content to appear. Reloading or refreshing the webpage solves this problem for most occurrences. If the problem persists, one of two things may be the cause. 1). You are using and old or out of date browser. Please check with your web browser for an update. Or 2). You are trying to find the Sneak Peek on a day it isn’t available. Please check the effective dates listed online above each week’s ad. The Sneak Peak is only available the last day of the current ad. While this is often a Tuesday because our new ads are regularly released every Wednesday, holidays and sales events may impact this and result in a new ad being released on a day other than Tuesday.

Q: What day are sneak peeks of the weekly ad available?

The sneak peek of the weekly ad is generally available every Tuesday. The release of our ads may vary based on holidays and events that happen throughout the year.
