Any opinions on these two stores? First off, J&W is full of nothing but rude employees, its heard around town that the owner buys her groceries from walmart to stock the shelves rather than a vendor an jacks the price up. Also, gas is always over priced!! Forets, Randy meaux is a jackass who thinks he's better than everyone else. The store has cob webs all over the food an groceries an the place is just down right dirty! Anyone agree?

To complain about J&W's gas as "always over priced" tells me you know nothing about economics.

Tell me, how many gas stations are there in Iota? Maybe put one up yourself, then compete.

We are lucky to have local business. The employees are not rude. You have bad information. If you are speaking from experience, then shop somewhere else. Nobody forcing you!

I don't/won't/wouldn't work for either, but, yeah... If it's that bad, you can always just go to walmart yourself. Cut out the middlemen, price gouging, bad attitudes (all except yours, of course), etc.

On the topic of Foret's. Yea, I have found items in that store that come from Wal-Mart. I have fouond food way out of date, but at least they are there when you need them.

Now J&W they are Bitchy, and they know it. So much so that months ago they had a sign behind the counter that read “Bitch of the Month”. With a point scale. Then again least they are there when you need them.

One place not mentioned which should be is the dreaded “Crap Shack”. That place is disgrace to anything one would called a business or a restaurant. The service is great if you are one of the 10 regular customers. Three times I visited this slop trough. I stood there being ignored by staff 10 min. or so, just to have a local resident walk in watch as they are waited on before me. Then when I do manage to place and order to have my food givin to next Local to walk in the door. This was not just a isolated incident, it has happened three time. The last time I waited 1hour and 10 min. total. So I think, well i'll call in may order, well the food was to burnt to feed my dog.

I have to admit I don't eat at the snack shack. The bitch of the month was for how many times a rude customer called them a bitch. Idk if it was deserved or not. I know all of the ladies and they are very friendly toward me. If other people find them rude, I have never seen it.

Ever hear of “ a purple tail “.
If one person tells you that you have a purple tail, you may not want to worry about it.

If two people tell that you have a purple tail, you want think about taking a look.

If three or more tell you that you have a purple tail, don't even bother looking because
YOU HAVE A PURPLE TAIL!

The metaphor of the story is: if that many people are calling them bitches, then guess what?

I have been going to J&W for many years and I have not found that the workers were rude. Maybe be it was an isolated incident, everyone has a bad day every now and then!

First of all, people in/from Iota are out of their minds. They think they are special just because they are from Iota. WTF, they are just a bunch of stupid hicks. The drugs, crime/incest are just as bad as anywhere if not worse per capita. Don't think you going to move to Iota to get away from all that.

They need to F.O.C.U.S.

First off how many of you actually work with the public? or better yet have an actual job?? Before you pass judgement on small town stores, you should get your facts straight. First off at J@W's The sign up was called the bitch club, which was put up because a customer came into the store and was asked for there I.D. to purchase alcohol,He did not have his id on him so he was turned down being upset he called the employee a bitch, she was hurt and upset by this so they made a game out of it by making marks of how many times they were called names for asking an for an id. And if you actually go into that store you would know that every monday and thursday they recieve a shipment from TWO wholesale companies they actually go through and no neither is wal-mart. And as far as gas price gouging as you put it this is now a large gas station which means you buy limited gas, which also means you dont make much off of it the price is set for you. As far as rude employees show respect and you get respect. Like i said before learn your facts before you pass judgement. And if you dont like the prices or the ppl why keep going in? spend that 20 dollars on gas to take you 30 miles to another store to save 50 cents.Now whose the idiot.

I miss going to the lil store's in Iota I used to go all the time there,cause it was close & fast when you needed something. If you needed gas to cut grass are just to make it to the next town it was there, there food was good also we had lunch pretty often..& the girls were always nice maybe you just have to know them a lil better..and there meat dept was good also, I sure do miss them I guess Ill have to go by and see them.... Now Foret's he would agree with you cause he is CRAZY like that again,he was always nice to us when we needed somin he would help no matter what and he like to cut up with his people & customers he is a trip.. But again they are some small country store's I guess you have to be from Iota to understand we like are lil stores & food places cause ther's not much there & you have to drive aways just for a few items....But we had to move and I miss all my friends out there...hope to see them soon :)))))

To " City ": I really do not understand what the deal is with being from Iota either. They act like it is something to held in high regard, like some sort of royal blood line. I just don't get it. Yea, Iota is a nice little town. I like very much living there but it ain't all that. One of the reasons i like Iota is because i am not from there. Truth be known, My Blood line travels thru the beings of Iota / like before it was even called "Wolf's Point" but you don't see me trippin.

The bitch club I LOVED IT!!! The reason it was started was the young people trying to buy beer and were not old enough and when told they could not buy it they would then call the workers a bitch. Thats how that got started. And honestly I dont work there but I would be proud to be in that bitch club and any parents should be glad those workers said no, saving a life of a young person, maybe their own...

Honestily, the problem with J&W is the owner. frankily its time for her to retire out and pass on the torch to somebody else with a little more work ethic and a little less senile bitchiness. As fot forets well what can i say, u get what u get over there. I'd deal with randy before ill ever deal with that old wriborg bitch. im sorry, J&W has left a horrible taste in my mouth and it honestliy would not hurt my feelings if it shut down. Honestily i feel the the town is in the slumps. the roads need paving the drainage sucks and damn it would the fuckin cops get out of the office sometime and actually patrol. that fat one is so lazy and nothing get done about him. when they actually had a decent cop they found any way to get rid of him. Wake up iota.. sorry to rant im just being honest

It is over priced and they are rude. I live here, and I know. I will drive to Crowley before I buy from them. You must own the place. Get real!
