Re: Earth Fare going out of business

There's definitely a lesson to be learned on expanding too rapidly too far out of your core area. It seems like these small organic grocery chains only do well by staying in their core metro or region. It's too bad Earth Fare is closing down. They were the first organic grocer I shopped at, back wh...

Re: Southeastern Grocers: 2020

I can't believe they are taking a few Lucky's Market locations. It seems like the stores would be too small for them. I guess they still have a little something left if they are interested in adding stores... Either Southeastern Grocers wants to try another banner, or it will be operating smaller p...

Re: Southeastern Grocers: 2019

Food Lion has realigned their Charlotte NC area and the rumor is that they will be buying all North Carolina stores from South Eastern. I do not see Food Lion acquiring BI-LO store locations in western North Carolina. Food Lion failed against Ingle's. Publix could find success with BI-LO stores 501...
