Re: Safeway Credit Card Readers

Terrible Herbst seems to be in big trouble. They are certainly trying to get out of Northern Nevada. I can't tell exactly what is going on. They opened a brand new station in Carson City late last month, a couple weeks after selling their other two there to Jacksons (they sold another in Carson City...

Re: Safeway Credit Card Readers

Those readers have been getting installed in the Chevron locations that lease their register from Chevron too. I think the SuperValu Albertsons have them also. Chevron has been installing the ones with the RFID readers, but they only seem to work with certain RFID-enabled cards based on my tests. Od...

Re: Has anyone seen this in a Kroger-owned store yet?

I don't think that is a new build Smiths. Smiths hasn't constructed with a drop ceiling in over 5 years. Plus, that design and the odd lighting used around the perimeter was specific to late 90s Albertsons. Albertsons position in Utah was more troubled than I thought. They recently closed a 2003 bui...

Re: Has anyone seen this in a Kroger-owned store yet?

So that Smiths in Magna, a former late 90s Albertsons? The design with a drop ceiling in center store and exposed around the perimeter was typical for Albertsons about 1997-1999. http://s196.photobucket.com/albums/aa113/StoreWest/Save%20Mart/Alb%20NV%20Sparks%209750%20State%20Route/?action=view&...

Did that Smiths in Magna used to be something else?

Re: Kroger Financial Services being offered at Albertson's?

That is odd. I wonder if someone put the wrong advertisements on the carts. You would think someone would have noticed this and taken these advertisements off the carts...

What store name was on the cards?

No matter how much I try to convince myself I just cannot like the triangle shaped aisle hangers.

Re: Longs Drugs Changing Into CVS

I drove by a store Longs built in Sparks tonight. Longs signs are gone and For Lease banners are up. This store never opened but did get some shelves and wall paint. To recap the current state of CVS in Reno/Sparks in regards to vacant stores they are attempting to sublease: Sparks Prater/Sparks Blv...
