Re: Dollar Tree Buying Family Dollar

Maybe I'm naïve when it comes to money and investing, but how can they even be a factor if they only own 1.7% of the shares?

Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

For example, the one remaining Kmart that hasn't either closed or on a list of closing/sold to other groups stores in this part of NY state is in a town called Greenwich (not to be confused with the village in NYC). Not anymore unfortunately-it's on the latest closing list along with the one in Que...

Re: Raleys remodeling Windsor, CA - closing store for 90 days

Aldi has done that with two stores in my area they've remodeled and expanded. And from a customer's perspective, I think it's for the best to do it this way. Shopping in a store that is undergoing a remodel is not exactly the most pleasant of experiences. Price Chopper is currently remodeling one of...

Re: Multiple Sam's Club Stores to close

How does BJ’s Warehouse manage to thrive between Sam’s & Costco? Not sure how many areas this applies to, but most of this area (Albany NY and northward) has a limited amount of Sam's Club stores and BJ's but nothing from Costco so BJ's has the upper hand in this area. Costco has been mentioned a c...

Re: Rite Aid Closed - Downtown Oakland

Article also mentions Walgreen's has a store 150 feet from this location. Speaking of which, when will there be any info. on what's going to happen to the stores Walgreen's bought? What's going to be closed/converted, etc.?

Re: More Layoffs at Walmart

It seems that they've used the entire grocery segment as a loss leader to get you into the store to buy more on the GM side. Very cynical way of doing business and just another reason I shop there as little as possible. Look at their track record when it comes to stand alone grocery stores. I wouldn...

Re: Aldi running national ad campaigns

I like Aldi and shop there for my "staple" items once a month (bread, frozen OJ stuff like that) but the one thing that bothers me more than anything about them is that I can't remember the last time I was able to buy everything on my list. This month it was waffles, once it was the bread and anothe...

Re: Interest in Texas grocery blog

Wonderful idea-would love to see A+P stuff if you have it and what some of those sites look like today.

Re: Market Basket finally unveils its own official website

Bottom line is this: whatever they're doing works and if it ain't broke don't fix it.

Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2017

Moosic Pa is about the only store I'm familiar with on this latest list. It began life as an Arlans way back in the very early 70's and closed with the demise of that chain. K-Mart moved in shortly thereafter and not too long after the recently closed Dickson City K-Mart opened. Don't see any NY sta...
