Re: Vons Inglewood, CA

I love this decor package, and would have liked it if my local Vons would've received this package instead of the annoyingly bright "Florida decor" package .

Re: Integration of Albertsons and Safeway

I was reading some Yelp reviews on the Albertsons located on Hillhurst and Ambrose (Los Angeles). It looks like this store recently got a major remodel. After doing some research trying to figure out what decor package it received, it seems like it got the 'Florida Decor' package. I couldn't find an...

Sears Home & Life

It looks like this is another new concept Sears is trying out, that will mainly sell appliances and mattresses.

Re: Safeway remodel Tahoe City, CA 09/2018

The Lifestyles interior is still very modern; the renovation looks nice. At least Albertsons/Safeway is committed to making the former Safeway family of stores look uniform. Meanwhile, Albertsons is a hodgepodge of various designs... I don't really agree with this. This renovation looks cheap and n...

Re: Longs Drugs?

Several of the comments in this forum bring up an interesting point - If an acquiring company keeps the original banner name (Longs) but then adds a bunch of parent company paraphernalia (CVS/Target cash registers, packaging, etc), doesn't the customer see through all this? I've always thought acqu...

Re: North Pasadena Vons May Close

Stater Bros officially announced they're taking over the lease and open a store on the site. I've never been inside a Stater Bros before, looking forward to the new store. http://www.pasadenanow.com/main/stater-bros-to-open-first-supermarket-in-pasadena-at-current-site-of-north-pasadena-vons/#.WlgEH...

Re: North Pasadena Vons May Close

It's officially closing, rumor has it that Stater Bros will be taking over. No official word yet.

Re: Vallarta Supermarket Pasadena (Grand Opening)

Beautiful looking in the video, even with a "warehouse" ceiling. Are those service departments open through dinner hours? I look forward to your update, original poster. I went to check out the store today, and it was extremely crowded so I was unable to take any good pictures. The parking lot was ...

Vallarta Supermarket Pasadena (Grand Opening)

The new Vallarta Supermarket in Pasadena is set to open Wednesday 11/29, this store is located on the spot where my neighborhood Vons used to operate for the past 20 years. A video was recently posted on Facebook that shows a brief preview of the inside of the newly remodeled store, and I must say I...
