Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

I also wonder in some locations if Walmart would take over a former JCPenney? I know that in Bellevue, WA, Walmart took over the old Mervyn’s at The Marketplace at Factoria. That store is the only newer non supercenter Walmart around Seattle.

Re: JC Penney Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

I sometimes wonder if Kohl’s would or could try to take over some JCPenney locations? I know Kohl’s doesn’t normally locate in malls but yet they do have some mall based locations. I am sorry to see the Salem Center location go as that now means that the mall will only have Macy’s as the anchor. Th...

Re: Stores & Riots

When we all started on this page, who would have thought that we would be talking about a pandemic or social unrest? Especially the toxic combination of both? 😢. What a freakin bizarre world and times we find ourselves in! It is scary, sad and kind of terrifying!

Re: First Joint Fred Meyer and QFC TV Ad

It’s like the CB&S staff ears were burning, there is an updated Kroger family of stores ad that started today. Associates are wearing masks and the audio messaging is about the supply chain being strong. This one is pivoting from an associate thank you to a customer message. It includes a visual of...

Re: New Seasons Market To Be Acquired!

There is nothing new to really report but an observation. I know that the Mercer Island New Seasons Market is slated to become Metropolitan Market by mid-year. When I was last there before COVID, I had been told that the conversion would begin in May. I have not driven by lately. In April there was ...

Metropolitan Market and Town and Country Interested in Gig Harbor

This is several months old but it looks like two grocers are interested in the old Main & Vine space. Metropolitan Market seems to be the more serious one in terms of the Main & Vine space! I am sure that good ‘ole COVID-19 is probably delaying progress on any of this happening now! https://www.then...
