Shopko to liquidate

My title says it all, and I'm sure it isn't a surprise.

Shopko to liquidate

Looks like they couldn't turn it around or sell it.

Re: Dollar Tree Buying Family Dollar

In my area both Family Dollar and Dollar General have some "disaster" stores that have most aisles blocked by unpacked freight, mostly empty and messy shelves, and absolutely filthy floors, doors, counters, etc., and both have a smaller number of very neat and very clean stores. I haven't yet figur...

Wow. That’s a lot. You were right. Let me know if u hear about louisiana Winn Dixie closings. Thank you !!
I have not heard anything lately about Winn-Dixie store locations in Louisiana.
The 7 WD stores closing are all in Florida, for now. What's left in Louisiana is safe.

Re: Rouses going to Florida

“As one of the fastest growing family businesses in the country, we naturally receive plenty of site proposals to consider,” Rouses CEO Donny Rouse said in an email. “While we love the Destin community, Rouses does not have a commitment in place to open a store in the area. We look forward to one d...

Rouses going to Florida

Looks like Rouses Markets is trying to move to the beach. They've announced plans for a store in Destin in a former Winn Dixie store (which itself was a former Food World store). Here's some info:

According to the article, it won't open until 2020.

Re: Target: Changing pricing on app when customers go in store

Not only that, but they can also make certain inventory unavailable should they choose to do so. I had this happen in January to me. I was ordering a birthday present for my daughter. She's all into Harry Potter, and we were getting her a Lego set. I ordered from my local store; it was supposed to b...

Re: Kroger closing Denison, TX

Looks like another "fringe" Kroger is closing in TX. I think this was the northern-most store. Looks like no fuel and no remodel in about 15 years and even then the remodel was mostly a wall job.

Re: Kentucky Fried Chicken

KFC isn't a restaurant I usually visit. But a few years ago I had started going again once in a while. Yet the last time I went the management just seemed poor and unprofessional and the chicken didn't taste right at all. So I haven't been back. The location also doesn't seem to do much business an...
