Re: McDonald's Brings Back Bagel Sandwiches

I ordered one today for breakfast (it's currently free with $1 Minimum spend App coupon in my area)...absolutely disgusting. Extremely chewy generic bagel and flavorless sausage and eggs. It made the breakfast bagel sandwiches at Dunkin' seem like gourmet cuisine in comparison.

Re: Bed Bath & Beyond: Dying?

I just noticed a paper flyer in with my other weekly supermarket circulars for Wayfair, and upon first glance, I thought it was a BBB flyer! The style and items in the ad reminded me of BBB from days of yore. Although none currently operate, it seems like they have plans for a few brick and mortar l...

Re: Amazon Fresh: Just Walk Out

Well, they released yet another $20 off '$40' distributed in the mailbox circulars in the area around my nearest Fresh store. How much longer can they keep this up to try and attract business? I will say though, yesterday I stopped in earlier in the day yesterday and there were so many employees on ...

Re: Haircut Places, Beauty Salons, Massage Parlors Disappearing

Tanning salons seems like a 'fad' that has for the mostpart, disappeared. There used to be a large chain(franchise?) in my region called Hollywood Tans that popped up in like every shopping center...now I think there are just a few scattered locations left that aren't tied to any particular owner. I...

Re: TJ Maxx & Homegoods Selling Halloween Items in July

Costco already has Halloween costumes and a few decorative things out, and I've seen some pics of stores with Chirstmas merchandise already!

Re: Amazon Fresh: Just Walk Out

How does the actual cashier work at Amazon Fresh? I've never gone to an actual cashier there before. Do they have the scanner point toward you so you can scan something without the cashier having to look at it and scan it? Doesn't Whole Foods have a scanner facing the customer so a customer can sca...

Re: Amazon Fresh: Just Walk Out

It is too bad as I like the dash cart a lot (for using their coupon...) Exactly. I see another location in my area currently under construction despite not being announced anywhere (the exterior is pretty recognizable at this point) and was hoping for some more coupons if they ever open. I guess it...

Re: Costco Raises Food Court Prices

You are lying when you claim the recycling doesn't work. That is a complete lie. There are statistics that state 9% of all plastic *ever created* have been recycled. Nine. That to me says recycling does not work. We should definitely invest in innovations and technologies to recycle more plastic, b...

China does have a secret technology: people willing to work for $3 an hour. Unless we have that in the US, it's probably not going to work here.
Don't forget lax environmental regulations as well. Recycling is a dirty process in general, but especially when it comes to plastics.

Re: Amazon Fresh: Just Walk Out

It looks like the experiment with the 'Dash Carts' might be over. Two locations opened this week, Oceanside NY and Paramus NJ. Both have the 'just walk out' option instead. Just looking at the reviews on the web for both stores seem to be pretty 'meh'. It seems Amazon has a lot of these Fresh stores...
