Re: Indianapolis' First Mall To Evict Stores For 3 Months

I prefer it still being Lafayette Square.

Re: Winchester/Front Royal: Martin's Monopoly?

Has Harris Teeter really not been a developer favorite? I thought they would since their stores are quite ubiquitous in the newer Loudoun/Prince William suburbs. There is a perception that Harris Teeter is fancier and more upscale than Giant. The newer Loudoun developments marketed themselves as up...

Re: Winchester/Front Royal: Martin's Monopoly?

Harris-Teeter has gone into a lot of odd locations in the DC area, perhaps because they haven't been a developer favorite in the past. They've also gone into places with little immediate competition (1st & M NE, which now has a TJs nearby) or rather weak competition (Adams Morgan). Stores like ...

Re: Meijer mid-size concept coming to suburban Detroit

Smart move, something Walmart hasn't done in more urban settings.

Re: Harris Teeter/Kroger integration

Some observations I've made of post-Kroger HT: *Prior to the merger, Harris Teeter locations would have endcap price markers, reading "VIC SAVINGS ON EVERY AISLE". These have been replaced with generic ads reflecting the "new lower prices" mantra. Stores opened after the merger ...

Re: Kroger in Milwaukee: 3rd time a charm?

#2, does that imply that American Stores bought into Skaggs Albertsons when Albertsons pulled out, or were they partnered alongside Albertsons prior to its respective split from Skaggs? Not too sure about #3 because there were "Skaggs Alpha Beta"-branded stores in California, where Jewel-...

Re: Kroger in Milwaukee: 3rd time a charm?

This seems to be a rather confusing history of mergers and the like. First; how did Skaggs Albertsons become Skaggs Alpha Beta? Was there any transaction made, or was Alpha Beta another arm of Albertsons at the time? Then since the Jewel-Osco rebrand was completed before they were bought by Ralphs ...

Re: Kroger in Milwaukee: 3rd time a charm?

That's correct. From what I read, American Stores was ruled to have an unfair advantage with both Alpha Beta and Lucky in California, so they converted a handful to Lucky (probably already having unified systems, so the transition was presumably easy and seamless) but divested the rest, and eventua...
