Let's start with policies

So there are several options for places for me to shop at around here so let's learn what all their policies are.
Ok first I'm going to name all the major stores in the area: Walmart, Target, Kmart, Kroger, Piggly Wiggly, The Fresh Market, Gordon's Food and Butcher Shop, Whole Foods, and Dollar Tree.
in a small section on the side it says their policy
"We double manufactures couponsup to and including $0.60. If like items are purchased with multiple coupons, we will double the first coupon and give face vaule for the remaining coupons. If doubling a coupon should exceed the retail value of an item, we will deduct the retail value of the item only. We give no money back on coupon purchases. All manufacturers coupons are taxable."

The Fresh Market
When I contacted them last this is what I received though its been a while so I sent an email seeing if there was any change.
"In answer to your question about our coupon policy, we accept all manufacturer coupons with bar codes and we rarely offer any store coupons since we have regular specials.  We do not double coupon values, price match, or accept competitor coupons.  There is no limit to the amount of coupons you may use per visit, but our registers will give the cashier a message that the coupon limit has been reached after two coupons.  The cashiers can override this message and you can continue checking out as normal.  Additionally, I would highly recommend viewing our Inspirations publication, signing up to receive our weekly Fresh Ideas newsletter, and becoming our Facebook friend to be aware of all current specials (see links below).  One of our great deals for June is Ground Beef and Ground Chicken for 2.99/lb on Tuesdays.  

Thank you for your email and thanks for supporting our Memphis store.

Gordon's Food and Butcher Shop
I'm going to have to contact them to find out what their's is.

Whole Foods
this is what I got when I contacted them

"Thanks for your interest in shopping our store. In reference to our coupon policy, we accept all manufacturers and all store coupons. You are allowed to use both manufacturers and store coupon at the same time for the same item. In addition you can use one manufacturers coupon and one store coupon (together) for each item in a case, in addition to the case discount. For example, if you buy a case of 12 you can give us 12 manufacturers coupon and 12 store coupon, and get the 10% discount on top of that. Isn't that marvelous, now why would you not want to shop with us :). 
I hope I have answered your question satisfactorily and I look forward to you shopping with us.
