Re: H-Mart Opening New Store in San Francisco

This did reopen as an Asian grocery store of some type after Albertsons (kept Albertsons interior). Maybe H-Mart will make a go of it here. H-Mart seems to be going into quite a few larger cities. H-Mart runs a good store in CA. Not so good in OR/WA/Canada, seems to be a different chain with the sam...

Re: Smart & Final Corona Del Mar Closed

I haven't been in a S&F since late 2019/early 2020, when I stopped in the Corona Del Mar location, so things may have changed, but their pricing on bulk, generic meat & produce was unbeatable. Bananas and carrots for 29c/lb., potatoes for 5c/lb., medium green bell peppers for about 15c each...

Re: Wendy's to serve breakfast in all locations in 2020

Wendy's new breakfast doesn't seem to be drawing crowds but they seem to be holding steady marketing it. I agree the product is pretty good. But I think Chickfila is better. One product I did not try personally but looked good was some sort of a croissant- but the croissant was square which looked s...

Re: Krispy Kreme

After a few trips to the new Krispy Kreme in Sparks, which I keep asking myself why I go back, the answer is clear: that original glazed. It is really great. If it is hot, it is wonderful. If it isn't hot, it is still really good. I am not happy with the lack of blueberry cake or chocolate cake but ...

Re: Walmart Stores Losing McDonald's & Add Domino's Pizza & Taco Bell

The McDonald's in the Wal Mart in Carson City, NV on Market Street closed suddenly on March 31 and was gutted out almost immediately thereafter. I was surprised it stayed open as long as it did, there was never much activity there. I'm not sure how great of a fit Subway is for Wal Mart given they ha...

Re: Dick's House of Sport

The problem with Dick's is they only want to focus on certain product categories. Certain categories that are a major draw to Cabela's, Bass Pro, and to a lesser degree Scheels- Dick's does not want to focus on, has discontinued from certain store locations to make PR points, or their management has...

Re: Albertsons continues to disappear from WA

The thing we have to give Albertsons credit for is they are continuing their long-standing tradition which commenced after the ASC Merger of having multiple interior decor packages going at the same time. Well, not NorCal Safeway who only seems to know what that Florida interior is. Except in Hawaii...

Re: Smart & Final Corona Del Mar Closed

Smart & Final is geared toward small business owners. In my area, you can see First Street and Simply Value products at many food trucks, taco stands, etc. Many janitors get their supplies from there as well. I don't think they are really focused on the consumer market. Since I don't have a Cos...

Re: New Seasons Market - 2021

These studies have been done before and it is a health risk. Especially risky is plastic trays a lot of packaged foods are sold in. It's recommended that you transfer the food to a safer container for the microwave but most people use the packaging that the food came in. https://www.health.harvard....

Re: Albertsons continues to disappear from WA

Pueblo, CO Albertsons also got remodeled into that interior Renton has. Maybe they are testing what generates the best results- remodel into a generic Safeway interior/rebanner or do an Albertsons remodel and keep Albertsons banner. Funny the Albertsons banner keeps getting customized interiors like...
