Re: Renovated Albertsons in Phoenix

I didn't recall when it came out because I hadn't been o an Albertsons in a while and the store closest to where I live still has the Albertsons Inc. 2000ish decor package (store opened in 2003). The labeling of everything "fresh" does work nicely with the new ad campaign "You're in for Something Fr...

Renovated Albertsons in Phoenix

The discussion about Safeway renovations led me to thinking about the fact that Albertsons LLC has renovated a number of stores in the Phoenix area to a much different look than what Albertsons had constructed prior the breakup of the chain. The "flagship" store, if you will, in the Phoenix area is ...

Re: Safeway renovations in Arizona

I took some photos (albeit a bit blurry) of the Safeway at 7th St. and Thunderbird in Phoenix. This is an ex Alpha Beta store that appears to have been built in the 1970s. It has one of the most unique interiors of any Safeway I've been to. The full gallery is below: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/3407...

That is what surprised me about the Rite Aid ad. I heard it at around 4:50 p.m. during the live, local evening talk show.

Re: Costco Eliminates Self-Checkout

The way Sam's Club around here does it is that the regular checkouts have receipts printed on white paper and the self checkout is on blue paper. The receipt checker than can pay extra attention to the people who used the self checkout.

Re: Safeway renovations in Arizona

That last interior, IMHO, looks nice without the drop ceiling.

Re: Grocery chains in your area

The stores Albertsons LLC has retained in Arizona and Colorado are good condition, well run, and medium to high volume. They are sitting on some garbage still in New Mexico. As for what was just purchased from Supervalu, there is a lot of work to do... I have to give Kudos to Albertsons LLC for kee...

Re: Grocery chains in your area

I think Frys has closed a couple of older stores in Mesa area. Fry's has closed 3 stores in the semi-recent past. Mesa: 825 W. University Goodyear: 390 N. Litchfield Road Phoenix: 1625 W Camelback Rd The stated reason for these closures is that there was another Fry's store nearby. For the Mesa loc...

Does that store have a "lifestyle" interior? The reason I ask is because the Safeway in Anthem is a "lifestyle" store yet ALL of the exterior logos are pre-Lifestyle.

I believe that the Advance Auto Parts ads are for their .com website. As far as Office Depot, they do exist in the state (but only in the Tucson market).
