Re: Sephora to move to Kohl's

When they built the Sephora in the local JCPenney, it really screwed up the traffic flow of the store and made the store even more of a dated, confusing mess than it was (mirrored columns, low lighting). I'd hate to see the Kohl's get mangled the same way. And what of the Sephora stores inside of J...

Sephora to move to Kohl's

https://retailwire.com/discussion/sepho ... ls-stores/

This will bring some traffic to Kohl's, but this also shows a lack of confidence in the future of JCPenney.

Re: New WinCo Foods locations out of Shopko Bankruptcy

I was in Centralia today and drove by the site where Centralia Station is proposed, where WinCo is supposedly locating. No signs of any new development as of yet. It has been nearly two years since Fred Meyer backed out. I really hope that the delays are due to the current pandemic situation and no...

Re: Walmart observations

I have seen improvement in Walmart's grocery operations. I am visiting them more since I have shifted away from Fred Meyer after they started their card program. While I feel that WinCo still has better prices overall, Walmart does have better variety in frozen foods, carrying some items that WinCo ...

On a non Black Friday note, Onpoint Credit Union is replacing Chase in the Portland area Fred Meyer stores. Says a lot about where the banking industry is headed.

Re: Jack In The Box

Jack’s tacos...a favorite of drunks and stoners everywhere! Washed down with a refreshing Jack Cola! (They didn’t switch to Coke until the mid-70s) I seem to remember Jack In The Box not heavily mentioning Coke products until sometime relatively recently, their drink cups for the longest time had t...

Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

I heard stories of Sears Stores actually refusing to sell appliances to customers if customers would not buy an extended warranty with the appliance. I never had them push that hard for the Shop Your Way program though. At least in the case of Sears, when you entered your phone number you typed it ...
