Rumor: Downtown San Jose, CA Safeway "Market" to close

Not official yet... but the mayor of San Jose seems to be the one who is saying this may happen. https://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/news/2019/04/18/downtown-san-jose-safeway-likely-to-close.html I wonder what went wrong. It looks like the parking garage went wrong. Store is about to hit 10 years ol...

Re: Bad concrete floor jobs at Walmart

When the Wal Mart near me lost its white tile floor a year or two ago, I actually was in the store one night when they were removing the floor from a big part of grocery. They had a machine and it just literally broke the floor and lifted it right up. The replacement cement floor in this store is ac...

Re: Godiva plans to open 2,000 cafes by 2025

I wonder if they plan to franchise these or run them corporate. It will all come down to execution.

With their prices, there is no room for any failure. It must be perfect.

Seems like a risky move, I agree.

Re: Palisades DC Safeway closing

Shows how bad my geography is with unfamiliar areas. Maybe we need to change the title.

Palisades DC Safeway closing

Funny to see Wine Shop Now Open banner up at the same time as the Total Liquidation banner.

Looks like a land use issue as opposed to a store that is closing for performance reasons.

Re: Metro Stores In Quebec To Allow Reusable Containers

Sanitation nightmare. For meat I am not so concerned because you cook it all the way and most likely any suspicious germs get killed. It is things like deli salads and such where I find this to be a sanitation nightmare. I do see some stores promoting small reusable canvas bags for bulk foods. Again...

Re: Issues at Subway

I was lured into a Subway recently due to a 2.99 6 inch sub promotional sign on the window and what looked like a nice store with a large space and a good trickle of customers going in and out. I went in and observed only one employee working. But inside looked clean enough (tables weren't visibly d...

At the pharmacy waiting area was a small table with a thermos, cups, sugar, creamer (shelf stable liquid or powder), stir sticks, and also a round aisle display with bottles of store brand bottled water. The signage invited pharmac...

Re: Market of Choice to close one location

Pricing at this chain seems a lot higher than I remember it being in the past... I was at the Ashland store.

Store looks great, but the prices... ouch.
