Re: Sizzler

The local Sizzler in Sparks has had some continual issues with the health department... have not been there in a few months, so not sure how much they have fixed.

Re: Unrefurbished Pavilions

You will find many busy Safeway stores in the San Francisco Bay Area that still have the vintage 2003 or 2004 Lifestyle decors. The Flagship Safeway was unremodeled since Lifestyle until just months ago. Even busy stores in no danger of closing have been neglected. The stores are literally falling ...

Re: Canada grocery market share 2020

This is from 2020, but I found a pie chart for grocery market share in Canada. https://www.flandersinvestmentandtrade.com/export/sites/trade/files/market_studies/Food%20retail%20Canada%202020.pdf Scroll to page 7. Apparently, Walmart is #5 in Canada for grocery market share. I'm not sure if Walmart...

Re: Pep Boys & Advance Auto

Reno, NV is converting to AutoZone according to recent building permit filings… Sparks, NV isn’t anything as of yet. That explains why the Reno unit has all of the windows blacked out but Sparks windows are just visible. Since Sparks already has Auto Zone nearby and O'Reilly with a couple locations...

Re: Rite Aid closing at least 63 stores

Went to the Truckee store today… hours are 8-6 M-F, 9-6 Saturday, 10-6 Sunday. Place was busy, but only two employees - one of them was from the Quincy store. Pharmacy was closed too - no pharmacist available. Sounds like they’re having some serious staffing issues - not sure how much that plays int...

Re: West Elm closing Reno, NV

Hilarious. This store when opened in 2016was celebrated by some out of state developers and local politicians as the first national chain retail in downtown Reno since the 90s when Woolworth closed as part of the chain liquidation (I guess the Walgreens at the edge of downtown does not count). Sign...

Re: Rite Aid closing at least 63 stores

The report was actually better than I expected it to be. Not great, but not a bloodbath by any stretch. They say they are closing 82 more stores... starting to wonder if store closures are being selected in a way to make future asset sales to competitors work out/not get FTC saying there is monopol...
