Re: Walmart Restrooms Closed, Porta Potties Brought In

The Walmart in Pleasanton is not a Supercenter and the manager of the store was fired a short time ago. The store has been suffering from a lack of sales. It is a ghost town with very few customers and tons of out of stock items. The manager could not handle his store and they got rid of him. The s...

Re: Habit Burger

Habit Burger is trying something new for a limited time: Roasted garlic cauliflower. It is non-fried and vegetarian for $3.99. Do customers want non-fried vegetarian fast food? Sure, why not? Better than the typical cancer causing fast food offerings. ;) https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/01/health/ultrap...

Re: WinCo- Oklahoma City- ending credit card acceptance

Just went to WinCo for the 1st time Monday in Indio, CA--a perfectly pleasant experience, but not a type store we have in Michigan (Meijer sucks the oxygen out of the room in it's areas for the pile it high/sell it cheap/big store concept); Omni in Chicago 25 years ago was quite similar to WinCo.
