It cud mean they sold to rubashkin :o not sure what u meant there
But if they’re trying to sell altogether I understand
And they were building in Cleveland!
did they actually start building? 🗣 Dan ?
They also were going to build another seasons express next to pickwick on peninsula
Clearly they spread their cash too thin

A better strategy would have been to lower their prices and be more competitive. In all their locations, they are the highest price store.

Even at GG which is expensive, people are on line with fI'll carts. By Seasons, most people have a few items in their carts.

I just hope GG/Kolsave doesn't raise their prices if they lose their only competition.

So true. So many ppl I know who I've talked about this all had one thing in common: never more then 3-4 items from seasons. Personally I went for dips ( h/t mechys) thats it.  There's no point everything is minimum a dollar more then GG.

Just throwing in what else I know: possibly Mr gold is gonna leave, or as my cousin who works there says ‘he won’t have a choice’

A partial investor I know is getting more involved to try and not have them close down- some of the stores which really are making a profit will stay while others (like Lakewood ) may go
Rubashkin is the meat supplier so that’s how his name is involved. (Q tho: didn’t some guy in Toronto buy out his co. when he went to jail? :o not sure really)
So that’s that

Various people who clearly know the situation. My sources would like to remain anonymous and I respect that.

Is that why their meat section has been so shvach recently and why they haven't produced any flyers in the past few weeks? I was there last night, and the meat section was almost empty! I thought that they had a good day, but now I see it's probably the opposite. Sad to see them go after investing in their renovation a few years back.

its not so pashut they’re done. Possibly Lakewood and/or Baltimore is but not necessarily 5towns or queens. Supposedly these stores are making profits just working things out now with debt etc so they’re not on their game right now
