Re: Rite Aid closing at least 63 stores

For the most part,most of the wellness remodels that happened in or around Sacramento were done right.I did however notice(via Google Maps)that the Santa Cruz location(1970's former Thrifty in a center shared with a Whole Foods that was initially an Alpha Beta based on the double-oval street sign)ha...

Re: Rite Aid closing at least 63 stores

As the Tahoe basin is basically at the bleeding edge of the RAD West Coast presence,I really have to wonder if any of those locations are suddenly fair game considering that the staffing shortages have reared a an even uglier head than in urbanized areas of NorCal. Sent from my SM-G781U using Tapat...

Re: Rite Aid closing at least 63 stores

All of the Wild Harvest Food is now 75% off. According to signs this sale started 7/24. Quite a bit of short date on the Wild Harvest food items I am noticing. I guess it didn't work out too well. It didn't seem like there was much promotion on the line in the past year. I am surprised Supervalu/UN...

Re: Rite Aid closing at least 63 stores

In the 90s, Payless in the San Francisco Bay Area had huge stores. They carried a huge selection of items. The Payless in Pleasant Hill, California was originally an Albertsons Payless Combo store. The 2 companies teamed up to create a super store that featured a supermarket and a variety store wit...

Re: Albertsons Remodels

It seems that the newer Safeway units locally(Sacramento Curtis Park, El Dorado Hills serrano)have opened with the Florida decor along with citrus Heights (1996 pak-n-save conversion)being remodeled into that decor (previously had the first version of the lifestyle decor).I don't know if the 'modern...

Re: Rite Aid closing at least 63 stores

All of the Wild Harvest Food is now 75% off. According to signs this sale started 7/24. It appears Rite Aid is not going to be using Supervalu/UNFI private label brands going forward. I wonder if they will start using a different wholesaler, or just will have even more empty shelves. This may have ...

Re: Rite Aid closing at least 63 stores

Problem is that the drug store industry is shifting away from brick & mortar at this point. I feel like rite aid will eventually get bought by private equity or possibly consolidate with albertsons and close any rite aid that is near an albertsons or safeway store and maybe use the rite aid and...

Re: Halloween Stores

Spirit Halloween has not yet opened, but they have announced their stores. Many of them are the same stores as last year including still abandoned Sears stores, Kmart in Concord and Petaluma, Toys R Us in Hayward, and many Pier 1 Imports. The new additions in the San Francisco Bay Area are Fry's El...

Re: Rite Aid closing at least 63 stores

Not sure it really has anything to do with this brand, as we have the same here in some Walgreens (the weekday only pharmacy), just a shortage of help overall no matter what store. It absolutely has something to do with this brand. This is a situation where Rite Aid has a store here and there (for ...

Re: Circle K franchise stability in NorCal

The quail Pointe Chevron on the Citrus Heights/Fair oaks border(swc sunrise/Madison)is among those whose c-stores rebranded from circle k to power market. On a side note,the longtime Madison/Dewey Chevron on the Carmichael/fo border has debranded and is now a Kwik Serv which may be a multi-site inde...
