    • omnixpq was right on the money on Feb10,2012. Saw it coming over 8 months ago

    • The following is a recent letter I received from a ********employee:

      As far as ****** is concerned; when they interview me in 2005(?) I was supprised to see the lack of SuperCenters in the area and thier arrogance that they wouldn't locate up there like they did in the south. What they are going through is the pain and agony that ******experienced 15 years ago.

      Sounds like they should be retrenching and bolstering operations and existing store base instead of investing in new locations....

      But I guess we are just preaching to the choir"

      • Well certainly not new locations in WI. Thats like Winn Dixie building new stores in Jacksonville - WTF? That ship sailed. Chicago, they will be fine there. Thats were the best talent and resources are being diverted.

        But if Walmart starts filling in by taking Kmarts - thats a lot of stores.

        Is Walmart still going to reopen their old store in Waukesha even with Woodmans opening? Thats going to be awesome.

        Are you going to the R - reunion on Monday?

    • Walmart, HyVee and Woodmans are specifically targeting the highest volume and highest sales per sq ft stores. Or clusters of mediocre stores. That will be a big problem here on out. Even worse if they get the Kmarts for their neighborhood stores. Festival has figure out a business model that gives them the upper hand. No one seems to beat them head to head.

      When competing with companies that have no debt or rent, cheaper labor, better employee morale, you can see very quickly what happens when they are allowed to open stores at will.
