These are some (good and bad) testimonials, but in the end YOUR opinion is what matters.
It’s an overwhelming environment and some areas are difficult to maneuver through. Usually have decent service but my last visit made me stop returning!!My wife and I were the store for about 15 minutes and I brought my service dog in. This was the first time bringing my dog in and my wife encouraged me since we know the laws regarding them regardless of store policy or lack thereof. As were NEXT in line with TWO CANS OF JUICE, a child in front of us approaches my dog swinging a toy, so naturally my dog barks as a warning so I pick her up realizing it’s the kid that’s alerting her. This prompted a very rude and unconcerned employee to come over and yell to us across another check and says we need to either leave or put the dog outside because she barked ONCE. I said that we were next and would be gone anyway but the customers in front of us were making the cashier jump through stupid hoops for them so I’m frustrated since I can’t make it go faster and the employee insists she’s right so I say “you know if you just ring us up then we’ll be out of your hair, but we’re not leaving” and she just glares, rolls her eyes and leaves. Guess it wasn’t much of rule if she didn’t care. But thanks for not helping!! She was short, white, had straight medium length brown hair and never once apologized or even called a manager. So I personally think she had no reason to leave her register that was a good 3-4 lanes away just to harass me. I left with a lot of anxiety, frustration and anger that she had to do that and put me in that situation without any other alternatives to leaving. Since then I haven’t gone back and I have no desire to return just cause of that. 🤷🏻♀️ 🖕🏼
I was a little overwhelmed when we first walked in because there's a LOT of stuff. But after wandering around awhile to get the general layout, I actually found several useful things to buy, the best of which was a nice aqua colored backpack by High Sierra for
Lots of great items and great prices. Many items from Costco. Be careful with the food items as they are of beyond or very close to expiration dates, sometimes it's ok as long as you are aware. They have everything from food and supplements to furniture, clothes and shoes. If it's there and you like it and the price, buy because chances of them having it later or again may be slim. The employees are always helpful and kind to me. Parking can be a pain in busy weekends. It's worth the trip first when looking for something then go elsewhere if they don't have it.
GTM. My inner ghetto cheapskate thrives here.To be honest, it can be a little dirty inside. Inventory stacked and shelved in such a way that just feels cluttered.It doesn't bother me at all though.... Because there are so many deals to be foundTons of Costco overstock eventually heads over to GTM. Lower price combined with a good rotation of coupons, there's so much saving going on.
Every time I visit San Diego I make time for at least one trip to GTM. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it is so dang hot in there! I always, always find great deals on things I need and/or want. For instance today I got some really good microwavable steel cut oats for less than half what I would've paid at a grocery store. I got some flip flops for my son, also less than half of what they are at Walmart. They have a little bit of everything. Pretty much any person that walks in there will walk out with at least one amazing deal if not a ton of amazing deals!
This store is full of interesting things. But if you see something you like, get it right away. They probably won't get any more of them. Always check expiration dates on food items; sometimes they're close to expiring. They receive Costco's end of season items. Sometimes they are less expensive than they were at Costco but not always. They have good sales and sometimes you can get coupons from the internet.
Gtm I love this place and a huge thank you to valerie she is such a great employee helped put and answered and pointed out to were the items were. Very helpful with customers, and keeps the smile going on. Very importantly well done great customer service helpful and a HUGE THANK YOU to VALERIE that's why I will keep coming back because service was the best.
I love this store, both the Lemon Grove and the Santee locations. The stock changes, so you don't really know what you're going to get, but there's always something that's worth stopping by for! We've purchased everything from furniture to clothing to health products to food there. When my daughter visits San Diego she always makes sure we make a stop at GTM!
We love GTM and shop there using the on-line coupons. No need to print, they will scan the coupon barcode from your phone. For years we've enjoyed the Lemon Grove location. It's nice to have one so close to the border. But, if you're looking for furniture, this location is not for you. Here you will find exceptional buys on clothing, groceries, health and beauty items, kitchen wares, laundry and cleaning products, school supplies, automotive and painting accessories. One of my favorite buys recently was famous name golf shorts. With coupon under $10.00. That's about $50 off from the golf pro shops!!
Place has horrible customer service! BUYER BEWARE. These people don't know how to work at a retail establishment, they had a sign for 75% off all gardening decor, figures and statues. Let's say the employees there need a dictionary as they do not understand what constitutes decor. I had lights for the garden, a decorative bird feeder and a garden plate to hang... according to the cashier and the 'supervisor' Silvia H decor refers only to statues and figures. They love false advertising at this store, I am actually filing a complaint with the BBB, I have a picture of the sign stating these thing where 75% off, it's their fault they do not understand what decor means, there was no fine print anywhere stating statues and figures only. I bet they made load of sales with people not knowing they got ripped off with their false advert pricing on the shelves. Supervisor Silvia was ride and horrible, did not want to honor the price.GTM you've lost a life long customer here, I was buying way back when you had stores in downtown san Diego, then moved on to the lemon grove store when that closed down... Chula Vista store is the worst!PS I did contact customer care well let's just say they said they would 'take care of it' still did apologize for horrible treatment from the supervisor. I'd rather purchase a grocery outlet, they have better prices on most things just check some stuff here is way more expensive and expired!
The prices are so very hard to beat! Selection varies, so the only caveat is that if you happen to find an item you like, you want to make sure to stock up, because you may not see it again. The service at this location is great, even fellow shoppers are a great resource, I have had some great product recommendations from both. I guess smart shopping creates a good mood and kinship.
Addicting store! I went in for 1 thing and came out with 5 more things. Kinda small on the grocery side but still ok. Some things I could have gotten cheaper elsewhere but it works when you forget to grab something from the store. I was still happy with how much I paid for what I got 🙂
Just went to this GTMs and bought all this for $37.56; I bought costco brand workout pants, target brand swimming shorts, business shorts, vegan cheese for $0.47, 2 24oz cashew yogurts for $0.50 each, boulder chips, salsa, 12 pack of toilet paper, frozen oatmeal, 2 12 oz bags of chia seeds for $1.00, and 24 pack of ready to bake lemon poppy seed muffins for $2, (which I currently have in the oven). They have online coupons and sales all of the time, (phone service in this area can be poor, so make sure to screenshot or have the coupon page open). If you never have been, they get products from local stores that are about to expire, over ordered, or damaged packaging, but still edible/usable. Products are always changing. Staff is always helpful and kind. . CHECK THEM OUT.P.S. the one in Otay has more food items from sprouts, whole foods etc.
