Re: Southeastern Grocers: 2019

I have heard more stores will close and/or be divested and BI-LO and Harvey's will exit North Carolina.

Southeastern Grocers is spending its way back into debt updating stores. Some stores that have been updated have been low performers for years.

Rite Aid’s stock is now less than a dollar. Will Albertsons try again, or will Rite Aid recover?
RIte Aid is in a position it cannot compete with CVS and Walgreen's. I do not know who would want to take on remaining stores and assets now.

Re: The Final Days of Sears & Kmart, 2019

I am sure this is a very fluid situation but Reuters and various other outlets are reporting today that Lampert's bid did not meet creditor requirements. As such a group called Abacus has been selected to run the full chain liquidation. Inventory levels look terrible at the stores I've been to the ...

Re: The Final Days of Sears & Kmart, 2019

The end of Sears Holdings has been here for awhile. As stores have leases that expire, they close. I am looking at the remaining South Carolina store locations: Kmart Kmart #4016 , Kmart Plaza, 1 Kmart Plaza, Greenville, South Carolina 29605-4442 Kmart #4141 , 1500 Charleston Highway, West Columbia,...

Re: Wal Mart 2019 Changes

It is mainly for shoplifting. After midnight is when there is so little staffing that grab and runs happen. Walmart probably doesn't make enough sales to justify cashiers and security after midnight. The Dixon, California store is near the University of California Davis. That is probably why it is ...

Re: Food City expansion into Alabama and North Carolina?

I doubt Food City will expand into North Carolina. Food City could expand into North Carolina by acquiring a competitor, or by being acquired by a competitor based in North Carolina. I will note Food City and Black Mountain, North Carolina-based Ingle's operate in similar markets. Northeastern Alaba...
