Re: Ross Store closure-Susanville, CA

Ross closed a store in Concord, California years ago in the 2000s that was a dump. It was an 80s era store that was dirty and messy. Shoplifting was a major factor. The Burlington Coat Factory opened in the shopping center. It closed down also due to Shoplifting. The next city over in Pleasant Hill ...

Re: Whole Foods Now Accepting Amazon Returns

This will negatively affect Kohl's. When I returned at Kohl's, they gave me a coupon for a discount off a purchase. It really makes you want to buy something. There was quite a line for Amazon returns. Now their sales will go down.

Re: Burger King

It seemed different than Popeye's chicken sandwich. Is it the same sandwich but under a different name?

Burger King

Burger King has debuted a new chicken sandwich called the CH'King.

It was quite good and is probably just as good as Popeye's chicken sandwich. It is a big piece of fried chicken breast with pickles and sauce. People say the deluxe and spicy versions are not as good.

Re: Grocery Outlet

I saw some of the old Albertsons brands yesterday. It was Essential Everyday for 1 item. I also saw CVS branded items. Perhaps they were closeouts.

Grocery Outlet

Grocery Outlet replaced Lady Lee with Crystal Milk. I found one last bottle. It was probably the last Lady Lee bottle of milk ever to be found at Grocery Outlet!

Perhaps Grocery Outlet lost the rights to the Lady Lee brand?

Re: Sprouts Adding Self Checkouts

I was talking to an NCR repairman and he mentioned that a coworker was terminated for purposely sabotaging the self checkout machines at a store. The repair people depend on machine malfunctions for work. If you do a mediocre repair, it is difficult to detect. However, they investigated her and ther...

Re: Starbucks Supply Problems

The problem is probably not a complete shortage of these items. The employees could go to a supermarket and buy oat milk or some other brand of hazelnut syrup. However, Starbucks is frugal and does not want to spend a huge amount of money on expensive ingredients. They are trying to get their suppli...

Sprouts Adding Self Checkouts

Sprouts is adding NCR Self Checkouts. I saw 6 of them being prepared at one store today.

I have found that this chain had a good supply of cashiers and baggers.

Perhaps they are becoming frugal now.

Starbucks Supply Problems

Starbucks is discontinuing 25 items due to supply issues. Examples include hazelnut syrup, toffee nut syrup, iced green tea, oat milk, refreshers, and more. There has been a shortage of caramel syrup at many stores. Customers of Starbucks are some of the pickiest and difficult customers of any resta...
