So Kroger is less expensive than Harris Teeter?

We really, really need help moving some of our big heavy pieces of furniture into our new apartment. If any of you guys want to help, I'll happily pay 50 bucks for each person who is willing to come help us for a couple hours. We'll be getting in on August 1st, probably around 4-5pm. PM me if you're interested, and we can exchange phone numbers.

Thanks!

I really would help except that I'm not coming up until August 5th, sorry.

You could post it up on the UVA Class of 2013 Facebook page and see if there are any takers. The last person to ask a similar question did the same thing.

They will not charge the 10% non-member fee on purchases during that weekend. They sometimes have furniture and probably have mattresses and applicances/electronics: http://www3.samsclub.com/NewsRoom/Press/751

3. Although they haven't started registration up yet, both the Harris Teeter and Kroger in Barracks Road Shopping Center offer 5% discounts on purchases (excluding alcohol, tobacco, and lottery tickets) if you register your store-specific shopper's card with them with valid UVA ID. They should start registration up sometime in August. You should also consider signing up for Harris Teeter's "e-VIC" newsletter thing (they send you emails) since you can sometimes get pretty good deals (and the coupons are automatically "loaded" to your shopper's card).


Thanks for this info - but what in the world kind of store is a Harris Teeter?

It's a grocery store. A bit more upscale than Kroger (with prices that generally match the upscale-ness). Both of the Barracks grocery stores are 24-hours (and there's a Kroger a few thousand feet north of the Barracks one that I believe is also 24-hours and has a fuel/gas station and a larger ABC store next door).



If y'all drive 5 minutes further, you can go to Giant, which is the same price as Kroger and has hand held scanners that you can use to checkout as you shop

Closest outlets are 2 hours away at Potomac Mills (Northern Va.) and Williamsburg.

Its the best thing ever - your checkout time is reduced to about 1 minute - you put the scanner in the dock, your total comes up, and you pay

Does anyone out there still need a place to live? If so, I have got a sweet score for you. If you are interested in living right around the corner from the law school at (drum roll please) the Jeffersonian, let me know asap. I have a 2 br apartment on the top floor facing the parking lot for the first person to respond. It is 780$ per month, has new carpeting, and is in great condition. And the location can't be beat.

Anyone picking up a key for an ivy garden apartment tonight? I'm trying to figure out how to get my key and haven't been able to get in touch with anyone. If you know where/when I could get in touch with the staff there or are meeting them for a key drop off tonight, a PM would be awesome.

Thanks!

*Points to UVA Facebook 2013 page*

I've heard more requests from people saying that they need help moving in than posts about worrying about trying to get a place at this point.

I'd actually be interested if I could get out of my current lease.

Constructive eviction FTW.

I rarely ever get to say "constructive eviction."

It's damn close.

I'm back in C'ville for a few days if anyone wants to hang out. Also I've got books and things to sell, I'll probably post them here shortly, first come first served.

How did you find this person? And was it online or by phone? - or magic?


Right here: --LinkRemoved-- -- $19.99 first six months/$42 or so after, is for current cable customers AT THAT RESIDENCE. If not, it is what I mentioned above. The first rep I talked to didn't know what she was talking about. I called later, and two reps confirmed that the price is as above for new/non-cable customers.


Thanks for sharing this!

Finally permanently moved into my place at the Jeffersonian. Now to find a desk or two, a table and chairs and maybe a few other items of furniture... for the least amount of money possible... :)

+1

There are some quirks, particularly if you go through one of the U-scan stations to pay (you can take your scanner to either a U-scan or a traditional checkstand), and the way that the receipt shows the club card discounts is totally different from what you see on the scanner as you are shopping. Overall, though, it's a really cool system. The best part is that there are special discounts that you can only get by using the scanners, and your scanner makes a cash register noise to let you know you're on an aisle with such a discount.

I don't even like grocery shopping, my policy has always been: Get in and get the hell out as quickly as possible. But this sounds like fun. I may try it just for kicks.
