Re: Kroger Cosing Dearborn, MI Store... Across The Street From Another Kroger

Maybe before they did the major expansion/remodel on the store across the street, they weren't sure which store they wanted to invest significant money into... so they just kept both. If they were still in the Superstore at the time, I'd be inclined to agree, but the Kroger had just been built bran...

Re: Kroger Cosing Dearborn, MI Store... Across The Street From Another Kroger

That Farmer Jack purchase was always a head-scratcher for me. Kroger selectively chose which FJ stores to purchase, so it's not like they were stuck with it. It's obvious it's closing because the lease is finally up, but not obvious at all why they took over the lease to begin with, unless it was to...

"The new logo now makes Lord + Taylor (with a plus sign instead of an ampersand) look more like Sears or JCPenney."

Re: Wild Cougar Shot Outside Macy's

Continuing the thread, I haven't heard about retail environments, but in the 1-mile Disneysphere here in Anaheim, there's plenty of Coyote sightings in the neighborhoods now, even my own. The reports are becoming more prevalent now, especially with the rise of internet-enabled doorbell cameras.

Not sure about other states, but currently the legislature in Washington state is in the process of raising the age for tobacco purchases to 21 statewide. Hawaii was the first to raise tobacco to 21. According to this website ... Twelve states – Arkansas, California, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Mai...

Re: Walgreens under fire for underage tobacco sales

It's worth noting that Walgreens and Rite Aid have now announced they will raise the tobacco purchase age to 21.

Re: Thread star ratings

I'm going to get rid of the rating stars, the ratings are just too confusing. "Thanks" remain though!

Re: Thread star ratings

The "ratings" are a feature of the new "thanks" button. It looks like a thumbs-up icon in the upper-right of a post. I might get rid of "ratings" and keep the "thanks" button though. I haven't decided yet. In either case, a person's ability to post will only be judged based on prohibited content per...
