Re: Fry’s Electronics on Life Support

Crazy enough, I was at the Plano store earlier this past week and meant to post about the experience on here. It had been a couple of years since I last visited this location, and let me tell you, the downfall was night and day. Entire portions of the store had noticeably empty shelves or floor spac...

Re: LifeWay Christian Resources To Close

You can buy this type of merchandise online at cheaper prices. These stores always seemed to high priced. Most of the customers who still used the stores were mostly senior citizens who did not use the internet for purchases. Their customer base is dying out. Actually, a big part of Lifeway's downf...

Re: Washington Senate passes Plastic Bag Ban

Well, it isn't really a plastic bag ban. It is just a pay for your bag and get a much thicker plastic bag bill. I don't think I've ever seen an 8 cent bag fee before (I wonder if the stores will even bother with the 8 cents or just charge the 10 cents). Still this is an increase from the 5 cent fee...

Re: Albertsons/Safeway 2018 & 2019: Openings and Closings

Not official yet, but the Randalls at Exposition Blvd and Lake Austin Blvd in Austin will likely be closing over the coming months as the property's lease comes up for renewal. UT Austin owns the property, and as of now, intends to lease it to HEB. This property is a tight squeeze, but would likely...

Re: Albertsons North Texas closing 4 stores

Randalls is dead man walking. Tom Thumb in DFW soon to follow.
