Re: Safeway sued for price gouging toilet paper

What is interesting is the White Cloud brand name was being used exclusively in Walmart for a while. It was positioned as a step below the national brands but a step up from the store brands. Proctor and Gamble has since discontinued the brand and passed it over to an outfit called Kruger Products ...

Re: Stater Bros opening new store tomorrow.

Stater Bros got a very good deal on those stores. They're also used to operating low volume stores. When they first took over those stores they got off to a rough start. The pharmacies remained closed for a long time and they didn't spend any capital on those stores for years. Gradually sales slowl...

Re: Stater Bros opening new store tomorrow.

After all the usual complaining about California chains like Vons, Ralphs, Smart & Final and the Central valley ones I've never seen, etc., it's funny to see people pick on Stater Bros for not being something they aren't. They've managed to avoid vulture capital, they competently run their stores, ...

Re: Stater Bros opening new store tomorrow.

The reason that many of the Stater Bros. that were acquired during the Albertsons-Lucky merger are now flourishing, is because Ralphs, Albertsons and VONS have closed their locations in close proximity. Had it not been for this, I imagine that many of those Stater Bros. would've ultimately closed. ...

Re: Loose Bakery

At the 7-eleven locations here, donuts are now being individually wrapped. That presumably works OK for the small volumes they sell in a convenience store, but would likely be impractical for bulk donuts in a supermarket. Vons, Albertsons and Pavilions have all donuts, bagels, muffins and loose bre...

Re: Safeway sued for price gouging toilet paper

Safeway had trouble selling their single rolls of Kleenex Mexico toilet paper. They just started putting them in giant plastic bags. It is now $5 for one big bag of 15. They are .25 cents each at Vons and Albertsons in SoCal. Tons and tons of them both on the shelf and special displays (at the Lake...

Re: Downtown Santa Monica Vons Property Owner Plans to Demolish

It wasn't burned down. Just a fire started in part of the store. I don't know how it was put out.
