Re: Kroger Covington, TN "sold" to Cash Saver operator

Kroger's Delta Division should be preparing for Publix's western expansion into western Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, and Kentucky. Where Kroger exits, Publix enters. Is Publix seriously expanding into Arkansas, Kentucky, and even Missouri? I think Publix built distribution that could...

Re: Burger King's Restaurant Of Tomorrow

Multiple drive thru lanes are challenges McDonald's, Chick-fil-A, and Burger King are trying to solve. McDonald's started the trend of two or more drive thru lanes by adding an incomplete second drive thru only with the order kiosk. Existing locations have added third windows to the first drive thru...

Re: Food Lion To Buy 62 Bi-Lo / Harvey's Stores From Southeastern Grocers

Although only technically, as Food Lion is part of the Delhaize arm (they and Ahold sort of joined together, but only partially, not a complete merger). I wonder if Ahold Delhaize USA has ways to go to get stores (Food Lion, Hannaford, Giant (Landover, Maryland), Giant (Carlisle, Pennsylvania), Sto...

Re: Food Lion To Buy 62 Bi-Lo / Harvey's Stores From Southeastern Grocers

I am wonder who will buy the other stores operating in NC and SC or will someone buy them? SEG will not continue to run them and they sold the distribution center to Food Lion, so if no buyer comes along and builds new distribution center they are toast. There are a quantity of quality BI-LO store ...

Re: Food Lion To Buy 62 Bi-Lo / Harvey's Stores From Southeastern Grocers

Wasn't Harvey's also owned by Food Lion's owner before? I thought Harvey's and Kash N Karry were linked together. I wonder why SE Grocers is retaining the Harvey's banner at all. They should just convert everything to Winn Dixie. I am assuming whatever Bi-Los they keep will convert to Winn Dixie. I...

Re: The Future of Buffets, Salad Bars, and Self Serve?

i don't see hometown buffet and sweet tomatoes surviving too much longer once restaurants reopen, they were already shuttering locations before this happened. sizzler may do away with the salad bar once they reopen and it will be interesting to see if other buffets do go to more of a cafeteria mode...

Re: Rite Aid changes logo

Rite Aid changing its logo is the least of its problems. First, the new logo looks worse than the current logo. Why waste time and money changing it? Second, Rite Aid needs to decide if it is in growth mode by adding store locations, or selling out to a competing drugstore considering it has fewer s...
