Target increasing Shipt connection

Now that Target owns Shipt, they are promoting in this market that you can order groceries "and more" delivered in as soon as one hour. On a side note, this was a very positive Target experience. Beverages were $1 lower than Safeway / New Seasons and then a manufacturer coupon for an additional $1 o...

Re: Why City Market in Moab?

I was looking at a jobs site and realized after I posted that I mentioned King Soopers in the title of the post instead of City Market. Anything I've ever seen beyond stores themselves appears to co-brand the two of them at this point. It sounds like City Market used to have a bit more flexibility b...

Why City Market in Moab?

If you've ever visited Moab, Utah, you've also likely visited Kroger's o&o supermarket there.

I was just curious, why is it operated by City Market and branded such? Pretty much the rest of Utah's stores are Smith's and with that division as far as I know.

Thanks y'all.

Re: West Covina Albertsons closed

“We depend on this market,” said Debra Fields. “There are lots of seniors that shop there as well as other people that this market is very convenient for them.” Um... unlike a lot of these closures where another alternative tends to be farther away / a long transit ride away, there is a Walmart sup...

Re: Cash & Carry is changing its name

Here you used to need to present a state issued food handlers permit according to one of my friends but under (new owners?) current ownership they are open to the public. In Portland I received a promotional mailer pitching the relocated NW Industrial location to the everyday person (Smart & Final, ...

Associated Foods' Macey's brand was selling Not See Kola (a cola that doesn't contain caramel coloring), Orthodox Jooce, and Leninade as part of their craft soda department. A local shopper found the first name offensive and made a complaint online. The company pulled all 3 items. Personally, I've s...
