Re: Albertsons North Texas closing 4 stores

Randalls is dead man walking. Tom Thumb in DFW soon to follow. Pretty sad when a company, Randalls, has to close it warehouse Pretty sad in DFW when the local headquarters located on the second floor of a store has to close. Here you had management preaching how to run stores yet the store right be...

Re: Target: Changing pricing on app when customers go in store

Re: Fred Meyer Remodels Continue

Longview update: Most of the store is done, with some work still going on in produce. For the most part things are typical for Fred Meyer, and they have added Scan Bag Go. But one thing is baffling me: the lighting. The store has rows of 8 foot T8 fluorescent fixtures that were installed in the las...

Re: Whole Foods Expansion

Amazon probably realized that they could make more money on the full priced Whole Foods stores. Eventually the 365 name will be dropped and all prices will be raised to absurd levels. The 365 store under construction will probably open as a full priced Whole Foods store. There is no shortage of peo...

Re: CVS to focus more on Healthcare

Most of the CVS stores here are in former Eckerd Drug locations that opened in the late 1990s and replaced former strip mall stores. So most of them are in pretty good shape, a good size, and have drive thrus, etc. I did notice there are a few locations that CVS had chosen not to take over that hav...

Re: Albertsons North Texas closing 4 stores

Cross post with the openings/closings thread, but the Randalls at 3050 N. Fry Rd. in Katy is closing and converting to El Rancho.

Re: Albertsons/Safeway 2018: Openings and Closings

Yet another Randalls closure/El Rancho conversion to add to the list, this time the north Katy store at 3050 N. Fry Rd. https://www.chron.com/business/article/Randalls-to-shutter-seventh-Houston-area-store-13455772.php Honestly, I am not surprised by this closure. It was the last Texas store to rece...

Re: Albertsons/Safeway 2018: Openings and Closings

Side note, both of these closing DFW stores would likely also be great locations for El Rancho Supermercado, with both being in close proximity to Hispanic-dominant areas. Update on this front: Take this with a grain of salt as I was just reading it on Facebook, but apparently El Rancho is taking o...

Re: Albertsons North Texas closing 4 stores

It seems like closures have largely stopped in other regions, but continue in Texas. What will happen if HEB ever seriously enters DFW? Who does WinCo appear to be taking business from in DFW? I am surprised nothing more is happening in Colorado especially around Denver because they are really runn...
