Re: Chick-Fil-A poised to become third largest fast food chain by sales in US

Chick-fil-A takes pride in friendly employees and high standards. They pay their employees more and it shows. The employees are friendly and are very enthusiastic. The food is prepared to a higher standard and you never get dried out chicken like at KFC. KFC pays their employees so little that you h...

Re: Popeyes closures in Idaho

Those people who ran those awful Popeye's restaurants have no business running another group of restaurants of any kind.

Habit is a chain that has high standards, and they will not want anything to tarnish their image.

Re: Stores with locked-down fitting rooms

A Burlington in San Leandro, California has a security podium and a guard. However, the guard also walks around the store. Apparently, Ross is much more strict about stopping shoplifting at the door. This makes more sense as the door is the place to discourage shoplifters. When I worked for Ross, ev...

Re: Amazon Go

The San Francisco stores are very much like mini-Whole Foods stores. They feature many prepared sandwiches, salads, pastries, etc. at high prices. However, the quality is very good and there are many local items from San Francisco area bakeries and restaurants. There are refrigerated cases with expe...

Re: Stores with locked-down fitting rooms

There is much more theft at discount stores such as Ross. Ross and other discount stores monitor their fitting rooms with attendants, but Macy's does not. Macy's has a strict return policy. Each item that is sold has a return sticker with a number. You cannot return an item without the sticker or re...

Re: Popeyes closures in Idaho

I have been to the Concord, California Popeye's many times and it is a nightmare. It is run by the operator mentioned above. I normally do not complain, but the employees at this location were some of the rudest and slowest employees ever. I had a coupon and the lady refused to take it at the drive ...

Wild Cougar Shot Outside Macy's

A wild cougar was spotted outside the downtown Santa Rosa, California Macy's. It was shot with a tranquilizer dart and dragged away. They released it into the wild away from the city. There were wild fires in the area and wildlife has been driven closer and closer to urban areas. Have there been any...

Re: Walmart observations

My local Walmart has stopped restocking fish. The fish tanks are empty. Has this happened at any other Walmart? There was always demand for fish since Walmart was one of the cheapest places for fish. The fish looked not so great since there was so much death and neglect. However, a friend of mine wh...

Re: Rumor: Downtown San Jose, CA Safeway "Market" to close

This mini Safeway was a lost cause. San Jose is a very car-centric area. The city is so spread out that you have to drive. If there is no free parking, your grocery store is doomed. The limited assortment was stupid, as you had to drive to a larger supermarket just to get the rest of your shopping d...
