Re: Wegmans to Manhattan Island

Yeah, perhaps, but I am not a fan of hispanic grocery stores. I find their freshness, sanitation and customer service style subpar. Also a scarcity of organic. Safeway could have made this happen with Pavilions. It was probably the closest thing in CA since it had a lot of large stores. It was no W...

Re: Macy's Neighborhood Store Watch

I miss I Magnin and Bullocks/Wilshire and Robinson's and Jordan Marsh and Burdines and even Gimbles (NY). May D & F was cool but not May Co. It is similar to other industries. When you lose the regional or medium sized chains, you really feel the loss and the stores become quite boring. I guess...

Re: Albertsons/Vons Giving Away Sanitation Products

Meanwhile back on the regular cleaning aisle, NorCal Safeway ran the $5 Friday yesterday and one of the items was 75ct Signature Cleaning WIpes or 64oz (?) Signature Glass Cleaner at 2 for $5; regular price 5.09-5.49. But then it seems every non-food/non-paper product Signature item is involved in a...

Re: Wegmans to Manhattan Island

I would argue new build stores of certain Hispanic chains are the closest thing to this level in CA with the value that Wegman's offers built in. Northgate for instance. Of course there are the premium but also higher priced chains in CA like Gelson's. Wegman's has a high priced perimeter but you ge...

Re: Macy's Neighborhood Store Watch

Right, but they are branded as Macy's and operated as such. I'm suggesting different branding that would pull in a different demographic. Think Food 4 Less vs Ralphs or Mariano's. The initial Backstage Stores were "outside Macy's" and in larger spaces very much like a Ross or similar and ...

Re: Macy's Neighborhood Store Watch

Bring back the regional department store brands? It has been almost 20 years now since the switch over. I don't think bringing back the regional stores would matter unless they did some sort of a different format in a limited number of stores. Between the number of stores they have closed as well a...

Re: Albertsons/Vons Giving Away Sanitation Products

I remember the Safeway app had a free roll of toilet paper on their app. That was when they had those tissue paper wrapped rolls of toilet paper that were probably the same ones you see at hotels. They were such poor quality that they had to give them away since they were not selling. CVS has that ...

Re: Albertsons/Vons Giving Away Sanitation Products

Safeway NorCal has had free wipes for weeks now via the app. They have a 10pk and an 80pk, the coupons seem to vary by location. Some locations have both, some one or the other, some neither. Despite my going into many locations every week I have yet to claim any of these.

Re: Taco Bell Issues

I went to an El Pollo Loco I don't normally go to this week. They were using generic plastic bags, generic plates for dine in orders, generic cups for side item orders, did not have any plastic bag in one of the tea urns to brew tea into (had it in the other urn), one of the two tea urns was missing...

Re: Macy's Neighborhood Store Watch

Idaho Falls' ZCMI > M&F > Dillards received a significant renovation but only on one of its two floors. It seemed at the time they were taking a break for the holiday shopping season, but sadly the renovators never returned. So it's 1986 on the first floor where the first impression is made. :?...
