Re: Bulk Foods and Self Serve Food Bars

I will admit that I avoid bulk food bins after seeing kids sticking hands into containers and taking things out, only to be taken away by parents and thrown back in to the bins. I reported this to an employee who did nothing and have seen this more than once. I think bulk foods are not a good idea f...

Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

They have put some banners on the front of the store now that say "JCP OPEN." Red banners with white background. Didn't they stop marketing themself as JCP? The signs in the window have the old 80's and 90's JC Penney logo. I am confused. I guess someone in the corporate office who orders banners i...

Re: Bi-Mart statement on COVID-19, ad suspension

I haven't seen a Bi-Mart coupon book in the mail in several months. However, they are still running TV ads.

Re: Rite Aid changes logo

New signs do not always indicate a remodel is in the works. I have seen many examples of new signage with no other changes to a business. Examples include not only Rite Aid, but also Safeway, Sears, Kmart, Wendy's (our local one was remodeled a few years back and got new logo signage this year), Jac...

Re: Nationwide Coin Shortage

This is something I have not heard about at all in my area. Still, it proves a point that not everybody likes to rely on using credit/debit for all purchases for a variety of reasons. This might not be a huge issue at higher-end businesses, but grocery stores, and discount type stores, serve a wide ...

Re: Costco discontinues sheet cakes; retains 10 inch round cakes

There seem to be certain items where Costco does not want to do a price increase on. I think the Costco customer has become less and less price sensitive over time, and Costco has done a good job with its products to the point where they are not the lowest price in many cases and the bargain baseme...

Re: Chuck E. Cheese Files for Bankruptcy

I don't see how an outside arcade would work. Video games etc. are not really made for outdoors to begin with, and with the unrest going on in some areas, this would be attractive for thieves. I have never been to a Chuck E. Cheese's myself (I have no kids) but from what I hear their pizza is nothin...

Re: GNC Files For Bankruptcy

I wonder if that one is still open in the mall in Aberdeen, WA, which, as of a few years ago, still had signage with a very short-lived logo used around the early-to mid 90s.
