Now That Kroger Bought Harris Teeter, Is Your Store Next?

Now That Kroger Bought Harris Teeter, Is Your Store Next?

So far this year, at least nine grocery chains have come under new ownership. Could your store be the tenth? Kroger’s announcement last week that it’s buying Harris Teeter represents the biggest, and latest, deal in the grocery merger and acquisition game (read: “Sold! Kroger Buys Harris Teeter”). About six weeks earlier, Bi-Lo scooped up Sweetbay, Harveys and Reid’s (read:[Read More…]

We’re Closing, But We Care – Sweetbay to Shut Down a Third of Its Stores

Kevin the Meatbay Butcher is not amused. The personable, punny public face of the Florida-based Sweetbay grocery chain’s Facebook page fell silent today, so his platform could be taken over for a more pressing matter. The Sweetbay Facebook page became an impromptu counseling session, to help customers and employees take in the news that a third of the chain’s stores[Read More…]

Pundits Predict Lower Grocery Prices

Pundits Predict Lower Grocery Prices

If everyone’s prices are low, are anyone’s prices really low? While you ponder that, consider this recent prediction from the retail consultant AMG Strategic Advisors: within three years, the vast majority of retailers will largely ditch sales and promotions in favor of everyday low pricing.

Good News, Bad News: Prices Won’t Rise, But They Won’t Fall Either.

Good News, Bad News: Prices Won’t Rise, But They Won’t Fall Either.

It is perhaps a sign of the times that grocery stores don’t need to lower prices to generate excitement – they can just promise not to raise them. Pittsburgh-based Giant Eagle has become the latest grocery chain to introduce a price-freeze program. Its “Low Price Lock” will guarantee that prices will not rise on about 300 selected items through the[Read More…]

The Low-Price Leader: Target. Really!

The Low-Price Leader: Target. Really!

As Walmart continues to run ads across the country, comparing its prices to supermarkets’, maybe it should have been keeping its eye on Target. Because Target has now toppled Walmart as the low-price leader – at least temporarily.

Shoppers in parts of the northeastern U.S. are gathering their CVS coupons, printing out Target’s offerings and perhaps hitting up their friends in other states who may have extra coupons to share.

Scratches, Dents – Oh, And Putrid Dumpster Meat, Too

Scratches, Dents – Oh, And Putrid Dumpster Meat, Too

Last week, we brought you the story about the growing popularity of “scratch-and-dent” discount grocery stores (read: Seeking Out Groceries That Are Dented, Expired, Discontinued – And Cheap.) Maybe we should have called them “scratch-and-dent-and-rotten-and-stolen from other supermarkets’ dumpsters” stores. At least in one particularly icky case. Rodney Sparks of Monrovia, Maryland was arraigned earlier this week, on charges that[Read More…]
