Re: Walmart observations

Walmart is a mess. They have massive stock outages. Just last week I was there and there wasn't a single gallon of milk. You can't be taken seriously if you can't keep a staple like milk in stock. The store in my neck of the woods is across the street from a WinCo that is well stocked and has lower...

Re: Raleys converting Reno Store to ONE Market Format

Went into this store tonight. Pretty much deserted of customers (before, would have had at least 10 customers). Produce not stocked well and not rotated well, some rotting looking citrus and mango out on the display, still mixing Organic and non Organic fruits up too. Their prices are really terribl...

Re: Food Source (Raleys) closing Reno, NV

Update: the store now has some brands of beer. Not all, but certainly a decent selection.

No other changes.

Re: Kroger- self checkout modification

Then again I use the Scan and Go app at Sam's Club all the time. The warehouse clubs have the mandatory receipt check at the door. And at Sam's they actually have to scan some of the merchandise to check against what you actually rang up. Scale or not in the Kroger cart I'm curious if their process...

Re: Walmart observations

It looks like Walmart has problems on a couple of fronts--groceries and its online service: https://www.vox.com/recode/22423706/walmart-memo-retail-amazon-target-instacart Wal Mart is already doing things to address improved execution on the grocery front. I am not sure it is working. They increase...

Re: Arco- Marathon?

I've avoided ARCO for decades since I only pay with credit cards, so if they're changing their policy, they need to do it chain-wide and advertise it if they want to win back customers like me. Because I'm not going to bother going into an ARCO to check whether or not it accepts credit cards. Wise ...

Re: Arco- Marathon?

So- in April a gas station over in Sparks, NV at 2169 Prater Way which was previously unbranded, put some temporary signage up and became a Marathon. I can verify this was an active and functioning Marathon based on a credit card transaction I did there and when I pulled up the merchant data it link...

Re: El Pollo Loco announces expansion and tiny model

El Pollo Loco is often found in some really high crime areas in California. You do not want to sit around and dine in these neighborhoods. You want to get your food to go and run. There one near me and a short distance away there are people selling guns and drugs. It is pretty scary, but I hear the...
