The grilled chicken at McDonald's is healthy if you don't take into consideration all the crap they put into it during the processing.

I thought the crap went in the river before the processing?

They have been pretty much shoplifted out of business, so they are throwing in the towel.

That seems to be a difficult concept for some folks.

So from that article he lost $100k to $150k per year on this store. While I agree that a business like a grocery store, depending on sales, will have a hard time surviving with those kinds of losses. My question is, and I know that it was pointed out they were shop lifted to death, why were they losing that much in an area that is underserved? In earlier posts I brought up that they were not selling recognized national brands, and were carrying Hispanic oriented brands, had higher prices than Warehouse Market, and that might be pushing away potential customers, and there were posts about this store being robbed shortly after opening, and posts about the fact that low income tend to buy fast food on an as needed basis instead of buying staples and eating at home. So what was the root cause?

I tried shopping there. I went in ten times or more. My kids go to school nearby.

It was a poor customer experience. Most of the store was empty aisles of bare shelves. They had a few basics and not much more.

The owner can blame shoplifting all he wants but it was a sorry excuse for a grocery store. I went one time due to it being the closest grocery store to Brady Heights and vowed never to go again, ever. The shelves were bare, no name brand food and the loaf of bread we got (that I checked the expiration date on to verify it wasn't old) had bugs in it when we opened the package at home.

I went one time due to it being the closest grocery store to Brady Heights and vowed never to go again, ever. The shelves were bare, little to no name brand food and the loaf of bread we got (that I checked the expiration date on to verify it wasn't old) had bugs in it when we opened the package at home.

Thank you. I asked 4 co workers who shopped there why they thought it was closing. Two women, two men. Two black, two white. All agreed that from the beginning, before the two robberies and any shoplifting, the prices were way too high, the shelves often bare and, most importantly to them, the meat was sketchy and expensive. Those criticisms alone are enough to sink any grocery store, much less one trying to take business from Warehouse mkt., nearby Sav-a-lot and Reasors at 15th.

I don't think people who post here are aware of the massive amounts of pilferage occurring at retail stores all over the city. Office Depot at 15th had amazing shrinkage to be located in such a wealthy demographic.

Nonetheless, I find it ludicrous that some northside leaders think having Black ownership will make any difference if they don't do any better than Perez did.

Isn't most shoplifting done by employees?

Interesting because Perez seems to do well at Admiral and Lewis and I never noticed bare shelves there.
