Re: Ralphs Fresh Fare Trademark

FYI. Ralphs is completely changing the look, format of its store ads starting with the November 6, 2019 ad. It's also changing its slogan to "Fresh for Everyone".

Re: Ralphs Fresh Fare Trademark

You can see a Ralphs ad for any particular store you wish to view on Ralphs.com. Compare them. You'll see they don't have ads that are different. Biggest difference is Fresh Fare stores get that heading on their ad, then there is the regular Ralphs ad and Ralphs in Hispanic areas get a few differen...

Re: Ralphs Fresh Fare Trademark

It seems as if Kroger's moving away from the Fresh Fare branding. When a location near me was renovated a few years back, Kroger added the Fresh Fare concepts, and then some -- brick oven pizza cooker, high end wines and Murray's cheeses, the frozen prepared meals section, etc. -- but never added a...

Re: Ralphs Fresh Fare Trademark

Fresh Fare exists because if you remember, it was supposed to be a response to Whole Foods. Likewise, Pavilions and the assorted "lifestyle" formats were supposed to address the Whole Foods thing. As time has passed the "reason" these formats are still here are irrelevant. The differences (in most ...

Re: Ralphs Fresh Fare Trademark

One thing that Ralphs did do in the last year or so was stop treating San Diego County differently than the rest of the Ralphs chain. While the rest of the chain has had 30% off 6 bottles of wine for a decade, in San Diego County it has fluctuated over the last 4-5 years from 15% to 20% to 25% to 30...

Re: Ralphs Fresh Fare Trademark

The advantage of keeping it active is because the company can more easily collect damages when a violation occurs. But as mentioned above, as long as they continue to use it they get to keep it. Are they still using Fresh Fare in ads? It wasn't that long ago El Segundo was remodeled into a Fresh Fa...

Re: Stater Bros Whittier Closing November 3

I thought they were planning to relocate this store. Maybe they still are but had to vacate this old one first? I guess old Lucky interiors repainted and with a new floor installed can't last forever. From this view taken in February 2019 on Google maps you can see the store under construction on t...
