Re: Pavilions?

Vons and Albertsons are outpacing Ralphs in sales gains in SoCal. I have no idea what you're talking about "trash". Vons/Albertsons has been much more aggressive on sales during the coronavirus than Kroger's Ralphs. Kroger has lost its way with so many idiotic ideas from recently backing off aggres...

Re: Pavilions Sherman Oaks New Build Plans

So glad Ralphs/Ralphs Fresh Fare gave up on those polished concrete floors. They look terrible. This doesn't look like an upscale store from the floor to the ceiling.

Re: Pavilions?

I'm not sure how you can call Vons stores "trash" based on two remote stores and also say "at this point most of what is left of Albertsons in SoCal is pretty nice stores". Both are in the same division and I'm guessing run by the same people. Having been in both one of the Ridgecrest and Taft Albe...

Re: Pavilions?

Did they do a store remodel or something in conjunction with the banner change? As more and more old grocery people in upper management have been retiring or leaving Albertsons and being replaced by people who may have food industry background but not grocery retail background, I think we are seein...

My guess is they were thrown a couple curves ... I don't know why Ralphs did not go in there and make an offer for every one of those Central Coast Haggen stores. They offered on the Goleta Vons (which ended up going to Sprouts) only. Another major missed opportunity for Kroger out west. Ralphs too...
