Re: Acorn does a price check: NY, Chicago, LA suburbs

I wonder how Trader Joes would do with that price list. Assuming they had all of the items... I think Kroger is pricing more and more off of Target. Not sure what QFC is doing being so much more expensive than Albertsons, that is really off. I saw another chart that a Northwest blogger and a Housto...

Re: Westfield Says It Is Done With The U.S.

As a somewhat famous\infamous example, Dixie Square Mall in Harvey Illinois (most notable as the site of a car chase through the then abandoned mall in the film The Blues Brothers ) had a Jewel store and a Walgreens as tenants during its time as an operating mall from 1966-1978. Throughout much of ...

Re: BrandX To Relaunch Bon Ton and Open a Carson's

As much as I would've liked to see The Bon-Ton et. al. stay around, for all intents & purposes it is dead and there's no reason to re-animate its corpse and make a new store unconnected from the old ones. Half the problem (figuratively, probably a much smaller percentage) with department stores ...

Re: 2022: 10 Kmart, 23 Sears stores remain...

Maybe someday after they finally close everything, someone will convince Eddie to explain the logic to keeping these stores open this long. Once the store counts fell below about 250 stores I don't understand how it made sense to keep anything open. Then 2 years ago when they basically closed the e...

Re: Target and Unions

So, let's see.....................................the employees should just roll over (like they always do) and take it because this company is not doing well? Compromise and sacrifice and get rewarded later? (but before the shareholders and executives). Yeah.................................riiiiii...

Re: Target and Unions

So let's see if we have this straight... Company literally loses money for the summer quarter (their business is very seasonal in nature). But if they unionize magically the employees are going to get all those summer hours back, plus raises? No, if they all unionized and forced either scenario obv...

Re: H-E-B to enter DFW market proper with Plano, Frisco stores

I have noticed in San Diego area WinCo produce is now being trucked in from Texas. They must not have any warehouse at all in California/Nevada/Arizona, and they've decided that it is cheaper to bring it from Texas vs. drive from Oregon/Washington. Since this change was made there definitely has be...

Re: Albertsons closing Irvine, CA

I think I've only been in one H Mart that doesn't have a food hall. I've been to three of them. The first was in a former Randalls, where most of the old perishable departments were turned into a food hall (a new seafood department was built in the back, H Mart's seafood department is unusually desi...

Re: DFW Tom Thumb/Albertsons/MArket Street Observations

I took you up on your dare and picked the Safeway in Littleton. And you're right. It looks just as dingy as the older (mid-2000s and before) Tom Thumbs in DFW. They even share the store layout and decor. 🤢 Littleton is one of the nicest Safeways in the Denver division. It was their flagship store w...
