Re: Krispy Kreme

Anyone can ask for the Monday free items starting 3/29. The Monday promo has not yet begun. Every shop has a different variety of donuts. Some do not offer all the choices. Man... not sure why they advertised it before it became effective. I hope the location here will add more choices. My mom and ...

Re: Fred Meyer & Target changes - 2021

Storewanderer, do you happen to know the story of why Safeway ended up with this store from Ray's? I remember that there were elements of that store that do not feel original to Safeway. Not sure when or why this store ended up with Safeway. Ray's built a few stores like this in the early 90's that...

Re: Fred Meyer & Target changes - 2021

Funny thing about the Coos Bay store... I was following the saga on Oregon's e-permitting site. Coos Bay was basically going to get a full remodel to make it more closer to a Marketplace store than a full-line Freddy's... however, the Coos Bay store is not only in a flood plain - it is in a local / ...

Re: Pep Boys - out of the parts biz?

Pep Boys in Sparks, NV has liquidation sale type signs up now saying 40% off all in-store merchandise. These signs appear to have gone up in the past 2 days. I went into the store. Walked in and saw the customer service counter and checkstand (which is an old grocery store type turntable) both de-c...

Re: Food Source (Raleys) closing Reno, NV

Video about the new store: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3zAy7CCvEo Scolaris pushed a lot of these same products to an extent with special displays, ad space, etc. over the years... maybe this concept will work better in a single location than it did in 15+ locations. Probably needs to watch how...

Re: Chickfila "reopening guide"

Chickfila in Rancho Cordova, CA on Sunrise has its front counter inside open for to-go orders. They don't have any designated "curbside" parking spaces out front but they do offer curbside as well. When I commented on it being open inside I was told it was their operator's decision to hav...

Re: Fry’s Electronics out of business

Also to clarify what I was told, Fry's is not bankrupt. The Sacramento Fry's, former Incredible Universe, was closed previously and it is just having a fixture sale and nothing else is still going on there. I had not realized that the Sacramento store previously closed, but am not surprised to hear...

Re: Food Source (Raleys) closing Reno, NV

I was looking for the official post… one of the things going in is a ghost kitchen for multiple brands, including Italian Hearts Pasta Sauce and other local companies. I know Sal & Val, and they’ll run a good operation.

Re: Food Source (Raleys) closing Reno, NV

Looks like the replacement store will sign up with IGA. It will be interesting to see if they are supplied by C&S or supplied by Supervalu/UNFI. Not even open yet and already this is their first mistake- they should pick up a supply arrangement with Associated Utah as it would get them way bett...

Re: Smart Foodservice now owned by US Foods

I went into the Carson City store the other day... they have changed a majority of the signage, however, not too many changes to the product lineup as of yet. They were able to order something for me that I have a hard time finding at other stores - something that was not as easy during the SmartFoo...
