    Rite Aid/Walgreens Merger Update

    The long battle (or process) of the Walgreens/Rite Aid merger has come to a halt today. As of June 29, 2017, the FTC denied a blockbuster merger between two of the three major U.S. drug store chains, Walgreens and Rite Aid. In compensation, Walgreens was granted permission to purchase 2,186 Rite Aid stores. Cutting around half of their stores, Rite Aid will have a more precise focus; Walgreens will reach 10,000+ stores over competitor CVS Health.

    Fred's, an initially planned suitor for the merger will not be involved in these new plans. With Walgreens' store takeovers, Rite Aid will be left to exit South Carolina, Indiana, and Utah. Several more states will face drastic store changeovers while leaving behind only a few stores there:
    -West Virginia
    -Rhode Island

    Other states (Colorado, Tennessee, Massachussets, Vermont, North Carolina, and Louisiana) will have the majority their stores sold off to other competitors.

    The photo is of the Manassas, VA store, in a state spared from action and across from a Walgreens and CVS store. It is unknown what would happen to this store, as it still has a 1990s decor package.

    If you are in any of the affected states, it's best to visit them as soon as possible to capture any Rite Aid treasures, oddities, or scenes before the end (within six months). Any comments or feelings on the changes or what you would have wanted, sound off them below!

    Kmarts in MS (as of November 2016)

    Last up for today, and in anticipation of tomorrow's photoset, I quickly put together this map of the Kmart stores in the state of Mississippi. And I really mean it when I say “quickly” - with Natchez's closure, only two stores remain... one in Columbus and one in Gulfport. We've seen Greenville's and Corinth's respective Kmarts close in the two most recent SHC closure rounds. Thus, I wonder if the inevitable rounds to follow the current one will wipe Kmart out of MS altogether. After all, what with Jonesboro and Memphis also closing this December, Kmart is already nearly exiting the Mid-South...

    Former Wilkesboro Super Kmart

    This Kmart opened around 1992 (not exact but loopnet claims to be built in 2000) which could be the 3rd Super Kmart store in the chain. This looks exactly like the Montrose, Ohio and Medina, Ohio Kmarts. This store closed in 2003 and it is now Walmart. This Kmart is 207,774 sf one of the largest!

    The Homestead

    Our family property was finally sold. It's a good thing, but a saddening experience. A big chapter in my life is coming to a close and I have no choice in the matter.

    Memories. Experiences. Growing. . . I wish I could go for a hike and explore the waterfalls one more time or ride dirt bikes again. We've been selling the bikes lately and that was when it truly started to sink in that our property is no longer ours. No more hunting for snakes or frogs. No more skipping rocks in the pond. No more shooting rockets in the field. No more bon fires and drinks.

    As the members in my family have grown and started their own families, we've all moved to different and far places, but the homestead was always home base. It was a place where at the end of the day, we'd all be together and pick up where we left off.

    Although I'm not too happy for having to let go of this place, I am still thankful for the opportunity I have been given to have such happy memories and experiences. I am blessed to call some of my family my best friends. They are my home, regardless of a physical structure existing and that's all I can ask for.

    Everything has a beginning and everything has an end. It's just life.

    hhgregg Update (Store Closings)

    (image credit: Google Maps Street View, May 2015 - Fairfax, VA location)

    Yet another sign of retail's future is showing as this chain is suffering in a speedy downfall, particularily one from the mired electronics sector. While steadily remaining a more local Illinois/East Coast retailer for years, the chain experienced a surge in locations with the demise of national Circuit City in 2009. With additional troubles and lack of interest in many locations, the road to bankruptcy had begun with previous CEO Dennis May's resignation one year ago. On February 25, 2017, the bankruptcy plans began circulating as a NYSE delisting also began two days later. As of March 2, 2017, 88 stores and 3 distribution centers will shutter this spring, possibly beginning the end for hhgregg as we know it.
    The chain is exiting several major markets it has entered, such as in Florida/Georgia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and of course, Virginia.

    Ahold/Delhaize Merger Update

    (the Celebrate Virginia North location in Fredericksburg/North Stafford, VA is pictured)

    As of July 14, 2016, the Ahold/Delhaize merger plan has been laid out for the Washington D.C. and Baltimore areas. This details all the events, closings, and buyouts of Food Lion/Giant-MD and PA (Martins) stores needed to complete the anticipated merger in those areas.

    The Fredericksburg and Charles County, MD Giant Food stores will stay open, in reverse to the original Food Lion takeover. The surrounding Food Lions may be closed. The North Stafford stores which will shutter will all be absorbed with Weis Markets, signaling a return to Virginia/Greater Washington for the first time in over ten years. Weis will also take control of several stores in Maryland.

    Down south in Richmond, ten sister Martins (Giant-PA) stores will be sold to Floridian grocer Publix, which will increase their footprint further north.

    Over on the Eastern Shore, Salisbury's lone Giant Food store (after a short-lived former SuperFresh location neighboring Walmart and a standalone drug store failed) will be converted into an Acme.

    Weis will also buffer their Maryland locations with the closing of several more Food Lion units. SuperValu also may sweep some stores for their Shop n' Save chain (rather than Shoppers or Save-A-Lot), expanding their reach further.

    To recap, the tides have turned slightly more to Ahold's end amidst a "Save My Store" campaign head in May, of which they are opposites with/without unions. However, this is still pending as the FTC may approve or strike the merger down at the end of this month.

    Non-Super Closings

    As usual, the "retail chain" Kmart has announced more store closings, along with a few Sears stores. Three Super Kmarts - Ashtabula, Lorain and Taylor were announced to close.I believe this will leave only two Super Kmarts left - Mentor and Warren.
