Re: Red Robin Launches $10 Gourmet Meal Deal

I've seen email ads for the meal deal, but it seems to be something you have to know about and have to ask for. It seems to cover a limited number of burgers, but does come with a drink and appetizer. I've seen ads on Facebook as well, so its definitely not something they are trying to hide very we...

Re: Walgreens Closures Continue in San Francisco

I do think if the employers would band together and force everyone back to their offices in the city, they could somewhat quickly reverse the city's fortunes. But I am not sure people would comply with such an order. It is so bad in San Francisco, if 40% of the workforce who has been working from h...

Re: Helium Prices Blowing Up

Good. Maybe we still stop using it for wasteful frivolous things like blowing up balloons. I'm honestly Surprised Dollar Tree is still able to sell balloons given the helium costs.

Re: Halloween Stores

Spirit Halloween used to be based in Hayward, California near San Francisco in the 90s. However, the company was taken over by an East Coast company. This year they have drastically reduced the number of stores. Last year they had multiple stores in the same neighborhoods. I was at a Spirit Hallowe...

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...
