Re: Integration of Albertsons and Safeway

I saw the first Albertsons/Safeway combo ad in the Phoenix newspaper today-Safeway shoppers requiring the card to get the same price as Albertsons shoppers. does this signal the start of the combination of the 2 chains in Arizona?

Re: Stater Bros. Exiting Pharmacy Business, Selling to CVS

Only 22 stores had pharmacys, so not a big part of Stater’s business.

How did Stater end up with the SupeRx brand? Don’t forget SupeRx was a part of Kroger at one time.

Re: OSH Closing All Stores

They could have just renamed them Lowe’s Hardware stores and had a smaller format urban style store. Don’t forget Lowe’s started as a hardware store.
