Re: Gas Price-Zone Price

Actually there are 4 refineries-all close in proximity to each other-North of SLC (Marathon, Chevron, Big West, Holly Frontier/Sinclair). Utah has very little crude oil, so l imagine most of it comes to those facilities from Wyoming and Colorado.

Re: Gas Price-Zone Price

I imagine some of the fuel in Winnemucca comes from Salt Lake City

A similar case…GSK has spun-off its OTC drug business (Robitussin, Advil)into a new company called Helion.

Reservation stores (Dine Market) and Small Town stores, plus Food City is the dominant Hispanic-oriented chain in Arizona.

Re: New Stater Bros. Riverside replacement store opening

I’ve noticed being in Southern California on vacation, that the grocery chains don’t advertise much on television. I’ve never seen a Ralphs ad (unlike in Phoenix where there is a Fry’s ad almost every 15-20 minutes…even on cable)and there was only a few Albertsons/Vons ads.

King Soopers’ West Colorado sister, City Market, is another story.

Re: Walmart observations

Online sales, plus they are the only mass retailer choice in many places, since Target won’t go into small towns, and Kmart is all but dead, all of the regional rivals like Shopko and Alco are gone.

Re: Bashas & Food Network

Bashas’ is non-union while Fry’s is union…that may be the difference.
