Re: Sears Fears: The Final Days of Sears & Kmart, 2019

A very interesting read from The Wall Street Journal about the demise of Sears.

One thing that stuck me when reading the article was how Eddie's hires seem to operate in a different reality than the others who were interviewed for the piece.

Re: Nordstrom Overhead Paging

I shop at Nordstrom, but don't know the answer, hence I didn't post. I wonder if that answers the question (no paging)? I assumed the telephone system thing was a different kind of overhead paging. I actually never heard paging at Old Orchard when it opened in the 1990's (I worked at Eddie Bauer an...

Re: Shopko to liquidate

Gee, another company that was run into the ground by too far-gone to be saved by private equity.

N. Scottsdale Rd. and E Pinnacle Peak Rd. It's in front of a wash and across the street from the delicious Egg n' Joe.
That isn't the one I was thinking of, but based on the Google pics it does fall under the "looks promising on the outside but disappoints on the inside" category.

Re: Kroger tests grocery delivery using self-driving cars in Phoenix

I am confused why they are pulling the service from Phoenix and moving it to Houston. I guess that is why it is called a "pilot" because it isn't ongoing.

Re: Kroger and creepy PA Announcements

Tonight I was at the Fry's Marketplace in Apache Junction and the "Hourly Conditioning" announcement came over the PA. In the bakery the associate was cleaning out the donut case using a feather duster. No singing, though.

Re: SuperTarget - Phoenix: A Review

No online pickup/ordering/etc but maybe they have a more "distinguished" customer. Excellent bakery. Clean and friendly butcher count...
