Re: Capacity Limits... in the winter

The telehealth issue is a necessary evil right now but.................. You are spot on with your observations and I would go further. Just about every business is using this Covid thing as an excuse to categorically and quantifiably deliver less. Even their attitudes have gone sour. I suspect man...

Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

Look at Sears for example. People spent their entire working lives in one store and one dept. and made a darn good living doing it and then could look forward to a decent retirement as well. And their demise has been well documented right here on this board. It's just all part of the "dumbing down" ...

Not quite all of them-broke down and ended up buying some cleaning supples at Wal-Mart (only place you can get some things) and their paper bags are made in Vietnam of all places.

Re: Camarillo Vons to move to former Kmart

The picture in that article makes it hard to tell how old that Kmart was, I know Kmart had to build some locations with a different appearance in California to comply with local building codes. I could see tearing the building down if it was 1970s or older, but it seems like most of the 1990s era b...

Re: Capacity Limits... in the winter

Let's just be honest about this and I know I'm outside the lane here but so be it. Places like restaurants, ski resorts and even small shops and such should NOT even be open in some areas right now and the govt. on the national level really needs to step in again and help get these businesses and th...

Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

This sounds like a few years ago when Sears was aggressively pushing the Shop Your Way program. And that's worked out very well for them hasn't it :roll: I totally depend on caller ID for my home phone (guess I'm one of the few people left with a landline and my cell is a flip phone so that qualifi...

Re: Coronavirus Fears and Empty Supermarkets

Thursday morning is my preferred time to shop and in light of the fact TOTAL case counts increased 9.3% over TWO DAYS in the area where the stores are located, I made the decision to hit only two supermarkets and stay out of the local Wal-Mart and Target. Market 32 was very well stocked on paper pro...

Re: Kohls

It looks like Ross, TJ Maxx, Target, Burlington, etc. are basically putting the final death blows for these department stores. Those 4 stores are absolutely packed with customers, have been ever since they reopened last summer, and the customers are buying bagfulls of stuff. I don't like any of tho...

Re: Amazon enters pharmacy business

I had a problem just recently with a prescription filled locally at CVS. It was for a 90-day supply and all I had to do was look at the amount of pills in the bottle and realize I got shorted by maybe two thirds. All it took was one simple call to the store and the pharm. tech immediately knew what ...

Re: Capacity Limits... in the winter

Walmart is bringing back the door monitors at many if not all locations. Not sure if they are going to go back to a single entrance again. They've sort of done the opposite here. The door monitors never left but now they stand directly by the doors instead of just before you enter the sales floor. ...
