Re: Albertson/Vons/Pavilions Pricing

Wow, I'm feeling left out. Back in November, I received a $10 off $10 coupon; when I switched to the Las Vegas market, the coupon disappeared -- and didn't return when I returned to Orange County. Several of the coupons I added while in Las Vegas (e.g. $1 off any frozen aisle purchase) disappeared a...

Re: Pineapple

Price Chopper up here in NY had them for $1.49 a couple weeks back - no clue as to what they were or where from, though. Are these one of those fruit/veggie items that have a "season" that occurs in different spots? One I notice like that is Asparagus - usually fairly high priced, but a few times d...

Re: Pineapple

Over Thanksgiving, Albertsons had huge pineapples for 88c each (in both SoCal as well as Las Vegas). Really good deal!

Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

JCP could’ve kept itself relevant if, 15 years ago, it continued to move out of malls + integrated its catalog business into e-commerce. But it didn’t, and the way we shop continues to evolve. I was in the Santa Ana (CA) location shortly after Black Friday, when I overheard two employees talking. On...

Re: Pineapple

Dole and Del Monte began “moving” its pineapple acreage from Hawaii to Central America beginning in the 1980s. Even before NAFTA was signed, Dole had rapidly shrunk its Hawaii footprint. It had largely ceased exporting the fruit by the late 1990s (what it grows at the Dole Plantation is intended for...

Re: Albertsons & Smith's Las Vegas Observations

I stopped at the Vons off Twain Ave in Las Vegas. Wow, what a time warp! It’s going on ten years since I was last in a Vons that didn’t feature some variation of the Lifestyles format. Is this the last Vons not to have been renovated? Granted, it’s in the pre-Lifestyles Safeway decor (and also has ...

Re: Albertsons & Smith's Las Vegas Observations

Regarding the produce bins, I noticed Gelson's is using a similar fixture in the Silverlake store. I should have tilted my phone camera up a little because it has a built in awning as part of the feature. And it is quite a bit bigger than the Smith's fixture. These fixtures are definitely able to t...

Re: Kroger Deli Hot Food Programs

Grocery stores have struggled with their prepared food options for years; it seems to come & go in waves. I've long been a huge fan -- when I started paying for my own meals in high school, my primary go to meals were from Farmer Jack (chicken tenders plate) and a local grocery store; their offering...

Re: Sephora to move to Kohl's

I doubt JCP was surprised by the news. Earlier this year, reports were that Sephora wanted to immediately terminate its contract with JCP, but ultimately reached an agreement to stay until at least through 2022, to at least give JCP the opportunity to re-develop its cosmetic counter. Most likely, JC...
