Re: Sears/Kmart Death Watch 2018

It appears my local Sears is now closing (Reno, NV). It is odd as a few months ago plans were submitted to the City Council to convert 3/4 of Sears ground floor to some sort of entertainment facility, keep about 1/8 of it for Sears, and sublease the remaining chunk of the first floor to some undeter...

Re: What now, SuperValu?

Maybe Albertsons will buy them. :lol: One of Retail’s most celebrated on-again/off-again relationships. But really, though, I would argue they have more to gain from buying SuperValu than Rite Aid. - No divestments except for a handful of old Food Lion stores that SuperValu ended up buying and some...

Re: QFC contemplating re-brand, maybe just ‘the Q’

I think Kroger has brought Fred Meyer "up" as far as some of its perimeters go. But the execution seems a little questionable. Having high volume stores really helps to support these perimeter programs though, and Fred Meyer definitely has very high volume stores. At the same time, QFC overall seems...

Re: Albertsons to buy (what's left of) RiteAid

This deal with Albertsons is valuing the remaining Rite Aid Stores at less than $685,000 each. That also ignores whatever the value of Rite Aid's PBM Envision RX is. The stores sold to Walgreens sold for about $2 million each. Walgreens got far worse stores than what Rite Aid is left with which are ...

Re: Vons Lake Elsinore Closing May 4th

It is not easy to run a high priced conventional store next to a Wal Mart that has a pretty full dry grocery assortment, even if it is a small Wal Mart... I am surprised the store lasted this long. The nearby Albertsons is in a better location anyway. Albertsons seems to be a stronger brand than Von...

Re: Kroger Changes Strategy

They have been delaying and/or canceling some new build Marketplace Stores for over a year now. I think they have opened a few during this period, too, though. But yes, they have definitely changed their strategy... meanwhile companies who seem to want to operate stores, and sell groceries, like Wi...
