Re: Ralphs Apparently Dropping Van de Kamp's Bakery Brand Name

it's kind of a shame that kroger lets their fringe ralphs stores go by the wayside. i don't really see them doing much upgrades to their foodsco stores in norcal either and they sell decent volume.

Re: The Final Days of Sears & Kmart, 2019

another band-aid solution to keep sears alive. it maybe buys only a few more months at most to keep sears alive.

Re: Albertsons/Rite Aid Merger is off: What's next

rite aid's best strategy may be a piecemeal selloff to cvs and walgreens and maybe sell the rights to thrifty ice cream to albertsons or walgreens. they could divest the northwest stores off to cvs easily. the central coast rite aids could easily be sold off to walgreens. other areas could be closed...

Re: Safeway San Mateo remodel (non lifestyle)

safeway used to be in the fresno area until the 90s and there still is the lone pak n'save in madera. fresno has a lot of bay area transplants, so people in the fresno area would hardly notice a rebanner to safeway in the fresno area.

Re: Safeway San Mateo remodel (non lifestyle)

if the fresno stores get rebannered, it would more likely be rebannered to safeway to cut down on ad costs and the fresno stores have essentialy become safeway for the most part with the ads being in the norcal circular.

Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

i expect the liquidators to win the auction. i don't see a judge approving lampert's bid to kick the can further down the road. sears looked like a ghost town during the holidays and they can't delay the inevitable anymore.

Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

i think big lots could be interested in a lot of these former kmart spaces for their stores of the future. i've been seeing big lots relocating a lot of their stores lately into bigger spaces and i see big lots gobbling up some of kmart spaces.

Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

i think the hometown stores need to be rebranded next year. it would be best to steer clear from the sears name after it liquidates.

Re: JCPenney struggles

i see jcp filing for bankruptcy sometime in early 2019. they need to consider private equity at this point to stay afloat.

Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

i think the liquidators will win tomorrow. i don't see anyone giving the lampert the backing of the $4.6b to keep sears dragging along. i could see some of the kmart real estate going to big lots with their plans of expanding.
