Re: Using an Old Receipt to Illustrate Inflation

Twice now I have tried using that coupon on bananas, being over $1 total, like $1.25 give or take and the $1 never comes off! Shaw’s this past Friday for me, had local apples at $1.75 or so per lb. A little over 3 lbs came to $5.30 or so. They were on sale for something around $1.29/lb, which broug...

Re: Another Shaw's to close

I wonder if Star in Boston is profitable? From my observations, Star Market in Boston tend to be extremely well-run, well-maintained stores that are high volume. They seem to do a much higher volume than their Shaw's counterparts, although my Massachusetts friends all note that Shaw's has vastly im...

Re: Gerrity's joins Wakefern

Now C&S is suing Gerrity’s for what appears to be breach of contract (though I can’t get past the paywalls). If they had a contract in place that Gerrity’s failed to properly end, they might have a point. If, as the second article’s headline suggests, they are focused on the potential revenue lo...

Re: Albertsons announces strategic review of company

I've been reminded of the time that Ahold bought Pathmark in 1999, and the time that Ahold Delhaize bought King Kullen in 2019. https://www.supermarketnews.com/archive/ahold-agrees-purchase-pathmark-175-billion https://farmingdale-observer.com/2019/01/11/king-kullen-acquired-by-behemoth-grocer-ahold...

Re: Albertsons announces strategic review of company

Now there's speculation that they want some sort of Ahold Delhaize merger. Ahold Delhaize runs the stronger operation in the Northeast but it would mean more divestments centered around the Northeast. https://seekingalpha.com/news/3869157-albertsons-ticks-higher-on-ahold-takeover-speculation Wow, t...

Re: Costco and Trader Joe's Selling Pineberries

I've seen these recently at Food Bazaar and Seabra's Market here in NJ. Almost bought them, too, if only for the novelty (and the $0.99 price at Food Bazaar for I think it's 10 oz...). I don't like berries but my parents might enjoy them. How much were they at your stores?

Re: Stop & Shop closures

Returning to this topic with another NJ closure — this one the extremely outdated Highland Park store. https://www.mycentraljersey.com/story/news/local/middlesex-county/2022/07/28/stop-and-shop-highland-park-nj-to-close/65385771007/ Here’s my tour from 2020: https://www.marketreportblog.com/2021/10/...

Re: Amazon Fresh: Just Walk Out

An interesting addition to the “Just Walk Out” Amazon shopping is that similar, cashier-less (but smaller) grocery stores are now open on the campus of the University of Denver, run by foodservice provider Sodexo. Sounds like they may have figured out a few issues Amazon is dealing with, but they’re...

Re: Amazon Fresh: Just Walk Out

Out here in New Jersey, The Star-Ledger did NOT like the first Amazon Fresh in the state. https://www.nj.com/entertainment/2022/07/njs-1st-amazon-fresh-grocery-store-is-a-poorly-stocked-letdown-heres-our-review.html Not a great introduction to the state, especially since The Star-Ledger (and its rel...
