Re: Walmart observations

I went to my local Walmart last night again. The fabric cutting desk was completely abandoned (it was 7 pm on a weekday) but the fish was fully stocked, all 18 displays and a shelf full of bettas.

Re: Walmart observations

I re-read my post and wanted to say that BEFORE the remodel there was the reset that added more products back. I think during the reset, the greeting cards section became the seasonal section, I remember that during the 2016 remodel, the place where the "Celebrate!" department had been removed, and...

Re: Walmart observations

I'm not sure if my Walmart has anyone cutting fabric anymore, but I seem to recall that the new area (which appeared after Project Impact, as the Walmart was expanded right in the middle of it) only has a desk at the end-cap and I don't think it's staffed regularly. In the old, pre-Impact days with...

Re: Walmart observations

Poking around on the Walmart subreddit, looks like all locations are ditching fish over the next few months and the section will be replaced by refrigerated pet food. It's about damn time and absolutely horrific that they sold fish for as long as they had. Oddly enough, a nearby Supercenter that op...

Re: Walmart observations

My local Walmart has stopped restocking fish. The fish tanks are empty. Has this happened at any other Walmart? Noticed almost half the tanks empty in the Amsterdam, NY store this morning. I do remember fish tanks at Walmart years ago, but honestly haven't paid attention to that so am unsure if any...

Re: Popeyes closures in Idaho

Eh. Popeyes to me is mostly found in rougher areas and gas stations, unless the store happens to be decades old. The fewer newer stores tend to hang out near highways but have uneven track records. There has ever been one stand-alone Popeyes built in my hometown which opened a block away from the fr...

Re: Walmart observations

Walmart built its success on having a "full" supermarket that drew shoppers to their general merchandise. Their "full" supermarket even by 1990s standards is extremely limited. They scrapped full meat counters years ago, there's no seafood counters, very few sushi counters, delis are low-end and ar...

Re: Grocery stores offering dine-in options

It's definitely a thing that comes in phases, in the early 1990s, grocery stores experimented with "food courts", this ranged from just rebranded parts of the deli to full McDonald's or KFC outlets inside the store (with seating). Eventually, most of these went away, and by the late 1990s and early ...

Re: JCPenney Stops Accepting Apple Pay

Nothing but an excuse by JCP to revert back to the past. Just like they couldn't stick to the new merchandising strategy or pricing strategy years ago. Just like they couldn't stick to their new logo. Just like they can't stick to anything. They just need to go. Going back to the past would be a vi...
