Re: Albertsons/Safeway 2018: Openings and Closings

That's definitely a shame (first Randalls I tried visiting) and ousts Randalls from the Northwest Freeway corridor entirely, but I find it interesting that they considered relocating. Not that they've tried building any new stores in Houston, but.... (Also, what is the lease status for this store? I...

Re: Albertsons closing 2 Seattle Stores

Worth noting that the "employee tax" they were discussing earlier was reduced by half. Still, the timing seems to be not a coincidence...maybe they were just looking for an excuse to dump the stores.

Re: SEG to file for bankruptcy, close nearly 200 stores

The bankruptcy plan for SEG will exchange stock for unsecured debt, which was unanimously approved by creditors. Meanwhile, Hucker honestly believes banners like Fresco y Mas will save the company!

Re: Circle K acquiring "Corner Store"

I am not surprised they are dropping Valero. They dropped them pretty heavily from Kangaroo Express too, favoring BP, Mobil, Shell, or in a few cases even Conoco/P66. They are sure quick to convert in Phoenix... I'm guessing Phoenix was easy because of the Circle K heritage there. Here in Houston, ...

Re: Kroger May Sell Off Its Convenience Store Chains, Including Kwik Shop, Tom Thumb, Turkey Hill

I believe the c-stores in the Memphis market were acquired from Schnucks, who may have inherited them from Sessel’s/Albertsons. When Schnucks sold their Memphis stores, the c-stores were rebranded “Kwik Shop” but apparently were really run under the Tom Thumb store division. On a separate note, if ...

Re: Albertsons to buy (what's left of) RiteAid

Apparently on April 24th, there was a shareholder that filed a lawsuit to block the merger. No idea if that would work (just on the basis of what Albertsons seems to want and would what make sense, I still think SuperValu would be better). https://www.bna.com/rite-aid-investor-n57982091534/ I think...

Re: Kroger May Sell Off Its Convenience Store Chains, Including Kwik Shop, Tom Thumb, Turkey Hill

I'm going to check around at the Kroger convenience stores to see if those have been sold or not. I can't imagine the Kroger-branded store in College Station was actually sold. The rest of the Houston division has Kroger gas canopies, but where the convenience stores exist, they're branded as Kwik ...

Re: Scan, Bag, Go coming to 30 Ralphs locations starting in February 2018

Video of Scan, Bag, Go from the Redondo Beach location. I know many cashiers there. It isn't working out. https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2018/05/02/scan-bag-go-ralphs-groceries/ You can't tell Kroger its programs are "not working out." It is very difficult for the divisions to communicate failing ...
