Would like to know if other island retailer's have weekly ad web sites such as this by Plaza Extra.

http://www.plazaextra.com/stthomasad.htm

Thanks for all your help.

Very nice. But it seems to be STT only.

No, Plaza Extra has STX East and West on line as well.

My original question is are there other sites out there like this one?

For the record, I'm interested in all sites not just Plaza Extra.

Thanks again for help from those that know the sites.

Very few locals are going to check a website for local specials, I don't think. Pueblo usually advertises in The Daily News on Wed, and that ad may be online at the paper's site. CostULess may have an online ad. Some places here will send you weekly emails of their specials.

Updating most websites isn't a big priority here. Few people have the time.

I got the site from a shopper at Plaza Extra. It seems they update their site weekly.

And they might be the only ones who are updating their site weekly! Plaza Extra seems to be aggressively targeting tourists as well as locals, because they seem to be the only grocery store advertising on tourists' sites and publications.

What specifically are you hoping to find?

I'd just like to browse the weekly ads on line.

Easy and simple, go to the store sites browse the ad and shop for what we need.

Simple.

I don't think I've ever seen simple and the VI in a sentence. Pueblo and Plaza Extra usually advertise weekly in the Daily News. CostULess has ads in the paper every now and then, but their ads are usually posted on the door at the store. I don't think I've ever seen a PriceSmart ad. Since they're membership only, they probably send e-mails.

Here, the ads are of little significance, because they usually don't have what they advertise when the ad comes out, or if they do, most times there's not enough to last for the length of the ad (unless it's something that's not very popular!). If I check the ads, I usually try to go that Wed, and if they don't have them that Wed, I'll try to go again before Sat afternoon to see if they came in. Usually, anything that's a good buy here gets snapped up quickly - VERY QUICKLY. Once it's gone, it's gone until the next shipment comes in.

Usually here you're so glad that they have what you're looking for, you're just about ready to pay whatever the price. Or just do without.

Cost U Less does have a website and supposedly "Soon Come" you'll be able to place your order online and they will pull your items into a cart and you can go pick it up. FWIW, I don't think it will fly. (td) 😮
Sometimes I've asked employees questions about items that they have carried in the past and most times do not have a clue as to what I'm talking about! 😀 On a positive note..................they are always very polite and wish they could help....(tu)

Wow, I was just thinking last week of how annoying it is here to not be able to get the flyer's online. What's worse, many of the stores have flyers that you can ONLY get in the store...what's the point, I'm already there! You think they'd want to try to sell me some stuff.
