where do you shop for groceries, and for why?

In my love to track down all pertinent food information in Vancouver as well as my great boredom due to excessive houseboundedness due to H1n1 here is where I shop and why,
care to list yours?
Famous Foods
I buy most of my meat and vegetables there, as well as at least 50% of my dry goods and spices, they also stock weird stuff like rennet that I can't find anywhere else. I have been shopping there since childhood and it brings back good memories
Costco
What can I say, two hungry kids and a great selection of reasonable (although gargantuan) products. I get my artichoke, sun dried tomatoes, pizza (boboli) bread, cheese and of course, DVDs there
Buy low
Decent prices and good produce-it's just down the road and always has ground chicken which is cheap, although fatty and great prices and those Lesley Stowe crackers which I am becoming addicted to
Bosa
Do I need to say anything else? Cheese, meat, pasta, things in jars, sauces, flavour, AND they sometimes give you free candy, what more could you ask for? I like the old store and the new one, not fussy.
Fujiya
My husband is Japanese, and this is where we stock up on all Japanese related food products and cheap and generally pretty decent prepared sushi and foods
Superstore
Only in desperation and mostly to purchase non-food

what about you?
