Re: Albertsons announces strategic review of company

Thankfully there are now more one-hop or one connection flights to/from the Treasure Valley than ever before (maybe?). Also, I would think some could plan a visit to also see Ore-Ida, Lamb Weston, Simplot or the Magic Valley's growing dairy region (ie. Chobani or Lactalis). I think so but many are ...

Re: Red Robin Launches $10 Gourmet Meal Deal

A fairly common practice with some convenience stores who have fountain drink specials is to not advertise the special at the drink machine, and only put a sign in the window, at the gas pumps, online, etc. The idea is the customer who intended to buy a 32oz drink does not know about the special and...

Re: Walgreens Closures Continue in San Francisco

The only article I could find regarding San Francisco being slower to recover than other places mentioned two metrics: Office vacancies and transit usage. There were no comparators for transit in other cites, but there were for office vacancies where SF was at about 24% vs. 21-22% in Atlanta and Ch...

Re: Walgreens Closures Continue in San Francisco

So we should force employers to make their employees come into the office just so the corner Walgreens can stay in business? :lol: It is the whole city. They need the office worker traffic back. It starts with the mass transit, the office spaces, the chain retailers, the small businesses. San Franc...

Re: Walgreens Closures Continue in San Francisco

Well, it seems to you and others and the media writ large, perhaps we should burn the city down. After all, IT is SO singularly BAD, how can anyone even breath oxygen. Everything there is so horrific, right? :shock: :shock: :shock: You don't need to burn the city down. You need to get control over ...

Re: Save Mart closing pharmacy

The supermarket $4 prescriptions brought in a lot of shoppers. Now that those are gone, the pharmacy no longer brings in as many customers. You lose a little on the $4 prescriptions, but you get a shopping cart full of sales. Supermarkets should bring back those $4 prescriptions. It will increase s...

CVS to end liquor sales in "Health Hub" stores

Internally it was announced that CVS is going to stop selling liquor in the "Health Hub" stores. I am not sure how many of these stores actually exist (there are 3 in my area- 2 are very small and ending liquor won't matter; the other is a larger former Sav-On 24 hours and ending liquor wi...

Re: Helium Prices Blowing Up

I can't believe there is a helium shortage in the US. They are clearly not looking in the right places for hot air.

I hope the hospitals have enough.
