    Yeah same . I am very very far from it but been there once or twice and it had bad customer service and smelled so much. Whats up with muslim butcher shops not taking care of the scent? It is off putting even for a Muslim.

      Re: What is your Halal grocery store like

      I work in my store part time so that means I get a discount :o It is fascinating to see people in our community from different cultures buy their food and people greeting "Salaam" to each other. On a typical day I could be serving a Turkish couple then a desi family that have two trolleys worth of stuff then Somalis then Bosnians then Arabs. It's great as I see these people at the masjid every week and every week at the store so I know the faces, the names and even have conversations with them. There is that real feeling of community solidarity among the muslims here.

      We even have non-muslim customers here, maybe its the competitive prices or cos the meat is cheaper and good quality? There is Coptic Christian woman orginally from Egypt who is a regular customer, she is a very nice person. She said the store reminds her of home as she can buy stuff from here that is from MENA region.

        What is a non-halal grocery store?
        Isn't it that a grocery store sell just vegetable and fruits?

          Suppose its a grocery store that doesn't sell halal certifieed products. So they sell meat but its not halal.

            The one near my place also serves many non-Muslim customers who are regular customers.

                I know innit? ;) Too cute, may also be the stereotype of halal shop owners, kind, generous, and rather loyal to customers.
                Which I feel is very true.

                        We don't have many of them close to us, just two. The other ones are like 1 hour drive away. We mostly buy meat and chicken from there, but also rice and certain traditional products and veggies that don't exist elsewhere. It's a really good place for that, alhamdulillah. Otherwise, grocery shopping is done at the big supermarkets.
