I like the convenience of Acme since I live 2 minutes away, but the prices are really high compared to other markets. I only go if I need something in a pinch. The store is always empty. I think if they were more competitive in pricing they would do tons better...they do have a pretty good selection of items and a nice bakery, just too expensive.
