Re: Smart & Final Corona Del Mar Closed

The bigger surprise is Smart & Final took that location in the first place. What were they thinking exactly? The articles you post note CVS is taking 13,000 square feet of the store. I don't think there is enough space left for Albertsons to reopen. I went to my local Smart & Final over the...

They've been slowly removing the Osco signs from the remaining Albertsons stores in Arizona as they are renovated.

Re: Safeway closing McLean, VA- replacing by Lidl

Then again with Safeway gone Lidl's immediate competition will be Giant And Balducci's. Giant is Giant and Balducci's covers the "high end". Lidl might be embraced because it is a much cheaper option but in a package that doesn't necessarily make you feel like you are at a discount grocer...

Re: Krispy Kreme

I know Krispy Kreme has been in and out of Houston at least once before, with several stores built in the early 2000s only to close later, and the "new" Krispy Kreme opening a few years ago with a variety of locations. Not sure how the "new" Krispy Kreme is doing, the stores hav...

Re: Walmart completes sale of Asda

Walmart hasn't had a lot of success internationally outside of Canada, Mexico, and China (where they grew more organically as opposed to purchasing an existing chain).

Re: Kroger closing 2 QFC stores due to $4 Hazard pay

Weren't Fred Meyer stores full supercenters and Fred Meyer Marketplace stores were grocery stores?

I thought that the Marketplace was the differentiator (unless Fred Meyer doesn't use that anymore).

Re: Fry’s Electronics out of business

They've been on a downward trend since about 2016 or so (I wanted to buy a Stereo receiver there but their pricing and selection was starting to go down so I ended up getting it from Amazon instead). The problem is that in the end Amazon sold everything Fry's did for about 1/2 the price and once Ama...

Re: Self-checkout and Shrink

I love using Scan and Go myself at Sams Club. Its super easy and when the lines are long, you just walk out. I've actually done the opposite and charged myself for something twice by accident and the person noticed it at the door (she counted the items in my cart, I had 8 and my receipt said 9). I ...

Re: Amazon Fresh coming to Sacramento (Citrus Heights)

Long ago this shopping center had an Alpha Beta. This is a really good spot for the store based on being a central location with access to a lot of roads. This is a rather downtrodden shopping center. The Rite Aid doesn't do much business and I'm surprised it is still open but they closed the other...
