Re: Discussion: Convenience stores / gasoline retailers

Customers are loyal to well known local brand names. When big corporations try to get rid of a trusted local brand, they lose customers. It is time that the big corporations realize that local brands can coexist and still bring in lots of sales. The sports venue renaming was a mistake. Perhaps a dua...

Re: Arco- Marathon?

I saw a newly rebranded Marathon gas station in Danville, California. The Marathon locator shows various other gas stations under the Mobil brand.

I went to an ARCO in Northern California yesterday and they accept credit cards with no fee. The gas pumps even accept NFC.

Re: Arco- Marathon?

The Marathon branded gas station was about the same price as ARCO. They are both low priced brands.

Re: My Goods Market Rebrands to Rocket

Many of these companies are going back to classic versions of their logos. It looks good.

Re: Walmart observations

Walmart is getting rid of their automated Pick Up towers. Apparently customers do not want to come into the stores due to the pandemic. Now they want parking lot pick up. Many of the towers are now turned off. Some stores now have an area of refrigerators for employees to store grocery pick up items...

My Goods Market Rebrands to Rocket

I noticed that the My Goods Market convenience stores have rebranded to Rocket. I like the new logo and brand name. It looks much nicer.

The Rocket convenience store decor is a space theme. I think they did a good job on the remodeling.

The Thrifty and Pharmacy are in white and the new Rite Aid logo is in the middle. A portion of the store was recently converted to O'Reilly Auto Parts. The drug...

I saw a Rite Aid with a new sign. It said Thrifty Rite Aid Pharmacy with the Green Rite Aid logo in the middle. The Thrifty was in white and slightly smaller than then Rite Aid letters, it really does look like it says Thrifty Rite Aid Pharmacy. It certainly caught my eye. This store recently split ...
