There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

I really like the quality and cut of their clothes...It's amazing that Kohls can sell absolute junkRead More and be growing, and a company committed to quality can't compete....Wake up people don't you think you deserve good quality clothes?...Quit shopping for a race to the bottom based on price...price and value are not the same thing.....

Hope you are right Chacha

ChaCha's got it right. Safeway was not bought by Albertsons. It was bought by Cerberus. They are aRead More capital management company. They buy stuff that needs to be restructured due to either bad business or changing economic models. "Super"markets are a dying breed. The mega stores like Costco and Sam's Club are beating them from the top. TJ's, Sprouts and dozens if not hundreds of neighborhood stores around the country are beating them from the other end. And the middle can't survive either because Walmart, Target, and other discounters are beating them in that space. Anyone that does not believe this needs to consider just one thing. Go to all of the other type stores, look at how busy they all are. Then realize that every dollar that goes to Costco, TJ's, Grocery Outlet, Walmart, etc is one more dollar that no longer goes to Safeway, Lucky, Albertsons, or the other "super"markets. The future will not look like the past. This buyout is just one of many that have already happened nationwide, such as Kroger buying Harris Teeter. This is step one in the downsizing and eventual elimination of the 1950's - 90's era "Super"market.

One other thing. If the City of Hercules continues to go along with the sale of its property toRead More Safeway/Albertsons/Cerberus and continues down the path of building a "super"market/parking lot/gas station type store it will be building obsolescence. It will be planning and developing a 20th century concept even though we are 14 years into the 21st century. The future will eventual show it to be the folly that it is.
