Re: Safeway NorCal Remodels and New Stores

They could have at least sprung for the late 90's Jewel interior stores (the layout isn't much different but the different ceiling in produce, angled/rounded pharmacy, and nicer finish work inside the stores like actual flooring and nice hanging and wall fixtures would go a long ways). I should jus...

Re: Nordstrom to close 16 stores post COVID

Out of the closing stores, the only two that I'm familiar with are Hurst, TX and Broomfield, CO. The Hurst store was opened in the early 2000's as part of a large-scale expansion of North East Mall in an effort to draw more traffic from Fort Worth and nearby suburbs. Although the neighborhoods immed...

Re: AMC Theaters expected to file for bankruptcy

Interestingly, in DFW, AMC and Cinemark are the dominant players, with Regal operating a more sparse selection of theaters around the market (mostly in lower-end areas). Their may be a bit of local bias here though, as Cinemark is headquartered in Plano, and most of their local theaters are run at a...

Re: AMC Theaters expected to file for bankruptcy

A big part of the issues which the movie theater industry is facing now can be attributed to industry consolidation in recent years. Up until about 5-10 years ago, there were quite a few different theater chains scattered around the US, some which trended toward large markets (AMC, Cinemark, Regal) ...

Re: Coronavirus Fears and Empty Supermarkets

In Texas, HEB is shifting their hours across the board to 8am-8pm to create time overnight for additional sanitation and restocking. In addition, employees and product are being pulled from some bakeries and delis to open up more staff for restocking/cashiering throughout the day. In some cases, out...

Re: Macy’s 2020

Comments to add for some of these stores that I'm familiar with: 670 Vista Ridge (Music City Mall), Lewisville, TX - This store was built by Foley's in the late 1980's and has held its own for quite some time. However, due to newer/far nicer malls within a reasonable drive, the attached mall has str...

Re: Macy’s 2020

As far as some of the Texas stores go, here are my thoughts on which stores will be carried forward/are likely candidates for closure: DFW - Northpark Center: Flagship, no questions or risk of closing here - Galleria Dallas: Store and mall are both at no risk of closing, but are not quite what they ...
