Re: WinCo interior changes

The Cedar Hills Crossing store in Beaverton, Oregon was remodeled about 2 years to the new look. The perimeter of the store stayed pretty much the same but the center store was completely rearranged. WinCo did a major expansion to its North Reno Store maybe 8 years ago (expanded into the neighborin...

Re: (City of) Malibu Grocery Store Report - Article

Kroger has really gotten away from the different divisions having different/unique bakery deli offerings in the past few years. There are still some unique offerings by division, but it seems to be less and less. The Colorado division still has a lot of unique offerings, but who knows how much longe...

Re: Poway Vons to Close?

https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/pomerado-news/news/story/2019-09-18/poway-vons-facing-uncertain-future With Wal Mart Supercenter next door, Stater across the street, Sprouts practically next door, and Grocery Outlet across the street, I wonder how much business this store actually does. Also g...

Re: Lowe's "Appliance-Centric" Store

Lowe's is fearful of Outdoor Supply Hardware opening up new stores in former OSH buildings and is pushing back. I still believe Outdoor Supply is planning new stores. Ace corporate (Westlake Ace Hardware) has also reopened a number of OSH locations. I am not sure what Lowes thought- did they think ...

Re: WinCo interior changes

WinCo did a new interior layout in the Las Vegas Stores and I think all of the new builds since then have been in that layout. There are 3 sets of aisles instead of 2 sets of aisles. The stores are much more industrial looking than before and less polished looking. The one store in Reno with Pizza g...

Re: Is the end near at Sears?

I went to the Kmart in Bishop, CA this week. This is a newer modern structure, one of the last new build Kmarts. No competition for a few hours in any direction. Bishop does have a Family Dollar and Grocery Outlet now which it did not have before. The store has deteriorated significantly. Almost the...

Re: JCPenney Remodels

The store is at Sunvalley Mall in Concord, California. It is a reasonably busy mall, and gets lots of customer traffic. The exterior has not changed much since the 60s. This store must be doing well to be getting such an extensive remodel. I find it interesting how JCPenney and others focus so much...

Re: Lowe's "Appliance-Centric" Store

Are they only re-opening one OSH with this format, or multiple OSH locations?

Interesting strategy... bankrupt OSH, close OSH, lay off OSH employees, then re-open the stores with a format that does a number of the same things as OSH did... wonder if it will offer "Craftsman" tools too.

Re: Fred Meyer in Boise

I think Fred Meyer has room to grow. I am somewhat surprised that they have virtually no presence in eastern Oregon, yet have stores in Idaho. Some towns such as Ontario, Pendleton, and LaGrande seem like they would be a good fit for Fred Meyer. Boise has changed considerably since Fred Meyer first...
