Helo! I spend $200.00-300.00 every month at my local Harps in Clarkaville. I wanted to switch from buying my animal (3 cats 2 kittens) foods at Walmart. I bought two kinds; Meow Mix and Best Choice. I put out a cup of each. They wont touch the Best Choice ( too salty? Sour?) and Im upset that the store manager said I may not exchange it for the other brands... I cant afford to buy more (tastier) cat food again this month.

There are a lot of people hoping your company is going to build a store in Richmond, missouri. We have no place to shop except Walmart and we need a store like yours.

I was very disappointed that a "district manager" made the Bella Vista Town Center store TAKE DOWN the schedule for the Bella Vista Community Concert Band. He/she said it looked "tacky" taped up in the front window and said it had to be taken down. Aren't you interested in the arts or community activities? Goodness! I think that's horrible.

We have a store in DeSoto Kansas. I was excited about finally getting a grocery store back in our town. Today was the last straw for me with your company. Here are the reasons:

1. I bought skinless boneless chicken breast. When I cooked them they were tough as a boot and had no flavor. Some with the boneless pork loin chops.

2. My husband bought a large bag of classic salad. He brought it home. It was all brown at the bottom of the bag. He took it back. All the large bags were that same way. The expiration date was 5 days from that date. He advised a manager of the this. He ended up buy two small bags. A week later, we both went to the store. I again went to get a big bag of salad. Same story, none were good. Again, they said they would tell the manager.

3. Today I went down to buy something from the deli. I bought 2 pieces of fried chicken and a small scoop of mashed potatoes and small spoon of gravy. Went to pay for it and they told me it would $10.92. For two pieces of chicken. They said the potatoes make it heavy. That is totally ridiculous.

I have lived out in this area for over 40 years. I do my business in Desoto when ever possible. You can't expect business to come to the city if you don't do business with them. I will not do business again at Harp's in DeSoto. Enough is enough.

I was in harps on garland a few minutes ago noticed that there was 7 50lbs bags of play sand o.k. the top shelf of a display rack i thought to myself this is a safety problem that's allot of weight on a flimsy shelf what of it collapsed on a child. I addressed out with an employee who only wanted too help me get something off the shelf.

I would like to say that I worked for harps for 2 years. The job at first was really fun, if you closed you left when you closed and the store manager was the perfect balance of boss and friend. Recently, the store has gone down the drain quite a bit. It's quite obvious harps only cares about looking good and beating walmart, they no longer care about the happiness of their employees, which in return makes us get bad secret shopper reports because it's hard to fake happy when you're truly miserable.

The store in Harrison also goes through store managers like a new pair of underwear. They moved our first boss to open another store after him being there for 8 months. Apparently he is the best opener harps had and they had no one else. We are now on our third boss who made the store feel like it was being death gripped by corporate. You can no longer take schedules, apparently they can't afford printer paper. If you close you don't get off at 10, you have to face the entire store before you leave and do all the chores that come with closing, making you stay till 11:30 or 12:00 which is really hard for the employees who are still in school. Did I also mention that you only have 2 people closing from 9-10? They did this because they couldn't top stock and order things right so they were losing money, so instead they decided to cut 7 hours a week. This made closing a really fun job. Oh, you also can't do trash by yourself now because they think we're stealing.

Harps used to be a small time chain that's goal wasn't to beat walmart, but to be the best grocery store in the area. This has changed a lot. Harps moto is "an employee owned store." Well it should be, "Harps, an employee owned store that doesn't feel like an employee owned store."

This would have been the best job I've had, there wasn't all cons. Unfortunately, the store has lost its magic and is fairly obvious due to the overall misery of the employees there. Good riddance.

I have been spending more than $9000/year at your Crossover & Mission Store in Fayetteville. No complaints ... until now, when a live-Lobster tank has appeared by the meat and fish department. Animals in distress, wating to be killed on request is not "appetizing" in Western Culture. It is more likely to turn off customers than to attract new ones. The tank of suffering Lobsters is unlikely to produce the $9000 you stand to lose with my business.

4/7/2017 brought items for a family BBQ, to include tomatoes and lettuce. All items were rung up and paid for however upon arrival at home to prepare dinner NO tomatoes and no lettuce. I call the store in Batesville, AR and told the employee the problem and was advised I should have checked the plastic bags prior to leaving the store. This has happened 5 times in the last year. The arrogance towards me for not checking contents of each bag will make the long trip to Wal-Mart worth the time and gasoline. Perhaps Customer Service should be a factor in Harp's employee program and an ongoing condition of employment.

PLEASE!! Get rid of those plastic containers for the Deli in Rogers, Arkansas. People with arthritis CANNOT open them. It took both my husband and myself plus a knife to pry it open. I have told them I cannot open them and the answer I get is a shrug as if that "is your problem".

I found out that this IS NOT the website to get in touch in with Harps with. It is not run by or checked by Harps. Go to the Harps website.

Doesn't it concern you that you only have a two star rating? Your store in Hot Springs on central is not producing well. Several people that shop there are having the same issues. Borderline rotten fruit,request for products that are never ordered, so we are forced to go to Krogers. We want the store to survive. Yet your management is turning the store into a oversized quick stop convenient store. A shame

I went into the Harps Grocery in Seligman, MO. last week to buy a few items of groceries and a six-pack of beer. The young clerk asked me for my driver's license even though I was attempting to pay cash for the purchase. I am 63 years old and certainly don't appear underaged for buying beer. I told the clerk my driver's license was in my truck. The truth is I didn't want to have go out and get it. The clerk said something to her superior who told her in front of me that scanning the driver's license was necessary or there would be no sale. I have bought beer at that store before without showing a driver's license. I felt like I was being singled out for some reason so I left the merchandise on the counter and went to another store. Was I being singled out or is it now Harp's policy to require presentation of a driver's license? Either way I don't like it. Harp's does not make any laws regarding the sale of beer and I certainly won't be subject to spur-of-the-moment whims of clerks or managers. I will do business again with Harp's again when this practice (regardless of its reason) is discontinued.

It is harps policy to scan Id of all customers

Don't feel bad it keeps the cashiers out of trouble

It's a state law that ID's are supposed to be scanned. The state does random anonymous checks. If you get caught not scanning the store can get fined. don't know how often that happens though.

Harps seems to have fallen prey to the foolish notion that they can take on the competition by becoming more like the competition. People do NOT desire more Walmart, or Dollar General, like experiences. Huge mistake; unchecked corporate ambition will result in an overall decline of a once promising enterprise. The negative observations of both customers and employees seem like they are being ignored. "Smiles in the Aisles" cannot be maintained in an atmosphere of fear and mistrust. The bottom line will eventually suffer. Treat your employees poorly and they will treat customers poorly. Treat customers poorly and they will shop elsewhere. Proceed along this perilous path at your own risk. Go ahead and Ignore the rumblings of Vesuvious.

Apparently they do not because I am still waiting for a response about moldy Provolone cheese purchased at their Bryant store. No problem, there is a Kroger down the road.
