Re: Boston Market

The Boston Market at Miesenbach, Germany Ramstein Air Base has closed. This was the last International location. It also appears this was one of the newest locations in the chain opening in 2019.

The chain is at a current unit count of 310 units.

Re: Starbucks Closing Some Stores Nationwide Due To Safety

Starbucks wants mail in voting stopped for the union organization efforts. https://www.npr.org/2022/08/15/1117533919/starbucks-nlrb-union-vote I am confused I mean these are tiny little elections involving a dozen or two dozen employees; why can't they just hold them in the Starbucks location with a...

Re: Downtown Rebounds - Cal Berkeley research relased

The cities that are a mess are turning people away. It is very simple. A "mess" can come from various forms. A city like Cleveland, how much does it have to offer in the first place? What industries does it have? San Francisco and Portland are just a mess of crime. Why would anyone go ther...

Re: Safeway NorCal Remodels and New Stores

The former Safeway Flagship store in Dublin, California is remodeling their gas station. I do not know if Safeway is expanding it or just replacing the old equipment. A new Costco Gas station opened up nearby about a year ago, and Safeway lost many gas customers. Are there any new Safeway Gas stati...

Re: Save Mart closing pharmacy

Well, I think I just did give credit where credit is due. :D :D The credit is due to the reporter who simply did their job reporting factual news in the case of this particular story involving Save Mart pharmacy closures in a timely manner with no slant. They obtained a quote/confirmation from the ...

Re: Albertsons announces strategic review of company

I am also not sure if there are tax reasons for having the HQ in Boise as compared to some other surrounding states. When they merged they could have kept the HQ in Pleasanton. They didn't. Safeway had also moved a considerable number of positions away from Pleasanton to a facility in Arizona over t...

Re: CVS to close 900 stores

Why is CVS getting rid of liquor sales? Is it a health thing? I'd imagine soda, candy, and chips might be next. I don't see that happening anytime soon. I suspect they are losing liquor because it is not a profitable category for them anymore. It is possible in the case of these Health Hub Stores (...

Re: Walgreens Closures Continue in San Francisco

I found Sacramento to be a totally different city. It seemed almost park-like around the Capitol. There were lots of trees and it seemed much less like a concrete jungle. However, the city seemed so spread out. It was difficult to walk around. I don't know about the night life, but it seemed really...

Re: Red Robin Launches $10 Gourmet Meal Deal

I think the $10 meal including a drink is interesting. I used to like their old Tavern Burgers which were at a 6.99 price point, two small double-type burger patties, they did the job. I'm one who prefers a thin burger patty (to ensure it is fully cooked) so those were just right. But I had more tha...

Re: CVS to close 900 stores

Another factor in this is that Long's was actually a relative latecomer to the Sacramento drugstore scene.Their first local stores opened in the northeast suburbs in the fall of 1975:6197 sunrise(since altered/expanded for a wal-market, CVS replaced this location with a freestanding store at 8101 g...
