Food & Big Box Superstores
« on: March 06, 2017, 07:49:58 PM »
We got a new Fred Meyer in Palmer Grand Opening this week.  I got over there for the first time today.

There was a FM in Palmer already, but a smaller one.  Carr's their main competitor opened up a new big store about 2 years ago and they were being out competed.  So they spent $35M on this facility, Right across the street from Carr's.

The parking lot was PACKED.  Everybody had to go see the new store and all the goodies.

If there is a food shortage somewhere in the world, it sure ain't here in Alaska right now.  Or a shortage of anything else, Clothes, Hardware, Sporting Goods, Guns, all under one roof!  Almost as much shit as Walmart, but their food is better quality, especially their prepared foods.  Did I mention that they have a sit down restaurant area also?

I may write a full blog on this, but for now here are some pics I shot with my smart phone.  Didn't have my better pocket camera with me.
