been to many around the country, and I get the same feeling from MOST of them. The employees at WAG and CVS seem MUCH more accessible and will open addl registers when they see a line forming. The RAD experience still has a ways to go IMHO
vs the competition (WAG, CVS)
Rite Aid stores are dingy looking, even if they were recently "renovated. The employees are typically hiding away from view, when I am in line to check out there is usually just 1 cashier with 5 others scurrying around "looking busy" the 1 cashier that is there is usually slow as molasses and has to have casual conversation with each customer even if there are 10 people on line. The employees seem to do the absolute minimum!
I cannot tell you how many times I have just put my purchases down on the counter and walked out.
Truth is I will no longer go to a Rite Aid unless there is no other alternative. The stock may have had a rebound, but the experience there is still very sub par.
Hmmmmm ok the cocky longs see the reality that consolidation is necessary..I am not saying to short it, just saying it needs to consolidate to digest gains...for all of you that wish to make fun of realistic conversation, I say grow up and try to be mature about things.
I am sorry for your losses, and I want you all to know I was never short this stock, only long and playing Devils advocate..I was lucky to have sold up in the teens, I feel for all of you that rode this up and all the way back down. Aria may live to fight again, but this is truly a monumental setback.
fat ugly wife: Herman, you lost how much this morning?
Herman: almost all of the 900.00 we had to our names
fat ugly wife: you said it was "a sure thing"
Herman: thats what the tea leaves and shapes of my bowel movement said
fat ugly wife: what about all of your "friends" on that yahoo message board
Herman: they lost it too
fat ugly wife: I want a divorce
Herman: we cant afford one, it has to wait
fat ugly wife : what about all of the bags of gold?
Herman: they are now bags of dirt, but there might be some worms in there
moral of story: Do your own DD and make your own decisions, definitely do not base your decisions
from "friends" on the message boards. Good luck to you all and
I am flattered that you continue to talk about me on this board, although I do not
currently own any shares.
I truly believe that ARIA is a great company and a good stock.
I do not buy "mature" bio's rather I find the egg and wait for it to hatch.
That being said, I feel ARIA will do great hings in the future as they are currently saving lives and making a difference.
I say GO ARIA! save lives, make a difference.
