Re: Albertsons announces strategic review of company

Not sure if this is the place for it, but how's Albertsons doing in other regions of the country? I'm just curious what's going on in other divisions that I don't get to observe on the ground all the time. I'm in northern New Jersey, and the very rapid renovations that were sweeping through the ACM...

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

And in Southern Cal, it is Round 2 for Kroger with ownership of Ralphs’/Food 4 Less, they owned the Market Basket chain in LA until the mid 80s. Even offered Tenderay brand beef and a few Kroger branded products. (But no Top Value stamps-they offered Blue Chips like almost every other LA chain) Int...

Looks like these stores were oversized clothing shops so much so they had to do this.

Re: Best Buy and the Smartphone Era

MicroCenter is slow growing for a reason---they once had over 100 stores and now have just 25. They nearly went out of business about 10 years ago. They straddled the hobby market and broader consumer market, but had problems once PCs became commodity items and it no longer paid to build your own w...

I saw some somewhat recent photos of the last NY Store and it appears the Sears Appliance Department is basically emptied out, but in clothing they are somehow sourcing some brand name items that are not present even in the remaining Sears locations that I've seen. Really tough to understand what t...

Re: Target 2022

What advantages do you see with the SuperTarget format? I've seen those nicely populated, but I'm not sure if the inventory count or having a deli or bakery would sound 'worth it' to Target. The advantages to Super Target are that it drives visits to the stores more often. This results in increased...
