Re: Stores & Riots

I was on the rooftop of my apartment building in the heart of Hollywood during the RK riots (Hollywood Bl. & Wilcox Av.) What I saw shook me to my core. It looked like a news video of Beirut. In my area I saw mostly hispanic families and some white adults looting stores by the rack full (very few bl...

Re: Coronavirus and Plastic Bag Bans

Compostable is not the same as biodegradable but it is better than nothing. At this point though it is not viable because the cost is significantly higher to produce than regular plastic bags. The best solution is for more people to use reusable bags. Preferably ones that can be turned inside out a...

Re: Coronavirus and Plastic Bag Bans

And that is the problem. What grocery bags a person uses, should not even be in the realm of being political. And there is no reason to make it political. Before long whether or not someone drinks Coke or Pepsi will somehow be made political. At some point there has to be an end. It's not political...

Re: Coronavirus and Plastic Bag Bans

Looks like activist groups in NY are getting really upset the plastic bag ban is not being enforced. It is not being enforced due to a lawsuit that hasn't been heard yet... we will see if it is heard or thrown our or what by June 15. https://www.wamc.org/post/activists-press-nysdec-over-plastic-bag...

Re: Walgreens Resumes Normal Hours

I don't believe that this expanded fresh grocery project went very well.

A former (and early on) executive from Fresh & Easy (he was terminated for inappropriate behavior) launched the initiative at Walgreens with much fanfare and projected success.

I don't think he works there any longer.

First time I saw Topco products was at King Soopers in the late 70s.

Re: BP gas stations return?

I have seen a few Sinclair stations in Los Angeles. It was a surprise and they all seemed very nicely kept (low price and good customer service). Seeing them warmed my heart as my Dad owned a small chain of them in NYC back in the late 50s through 1967. I helped him out as a kid pumping gas and clea...
