Re: Food 4 Less - Arkansas

Then there is the Falley's/F4L stores in Kansas that was part of Yucaipa/Ralphs/Fred Meyer... what happened to those?

Falley's started the F4L concept, not Fleming. I don't know how and when F4L got out to SoCal.

Re: Is 2021 finally the end for Sears/Kmart?

Interesting article from Retail Dive. https://www.retaildive.com/news/is-the-never-ending-sears-saga-finally-reaching-its-closing-chapters/600562/ Only 28 Sears and 21 Kmarts left. I don't know how long this crap is going to continue on, considering Eddie wants to make this a long and painful death....

Re: Food Source Closing- Hayward, CA 6/4

This will leave one Food Source, in Stockton. Also the Sak N Save in Reno which they didn't re-banner but it is basically a Food Source Store. Not clear if Raleys lined up a buyer for Hayward or if it is just closing. Unfortunate Kroger did not take this and convert it to a FoodsCo, it is a good si...

Re: Albertsons Las Vegas Observations

If you go another exit down from there, there is a big Vons, about 15 years old. It never got a Lifestyle remodel and does very little business. I am sure it was on the way out under Safeway, but the changes Arizona made in pricing and promotions must be getting it enough traffic to survive. That V...

Re: New Safeway for Reno

I think distribution was switched to Phoenix because they closed two distribution centers in SoCal after the merger. Moving the Las Vegas distribution helped to relieve some pressure off the two remaining warehouses. Also, the Arizona DC is underutilized . No, the Las Vegas Albertsons were switched...

I know Salt Lake City is all highway but Boise is closer.
Albertsons doesn't have a warehouse in Boise.

Re: Albertsons continues to disappear from WA

Albertsons could have fixed NorCal in 2006 by going back to the Lucky banner and running it like Lucky was run. Of course a block of the stores did end up back to the Lucky banner, but run like a Save Mart. I suppose it worked out for them in the end since they ended up with Safeway NorCal instead ...

Re: Albertsons continues to disappear from WA

They came pretty close to becoming a KMart-like disaster when they dissolved the original company and sold if off in pieces to SuperValu, CVS and Cerberus Capital Management. The latter is responsible for the success of the current company. I think the rebranding of Lucky and acquisition of Shaw's ...
