The Raley's on Paseo and Ventura was a great store. It is now an Albertson's. While it retained the same look and feel, and many of the same employees, there is already a difference. It was just friendlier when it was Raley's. Also, they had a better meat counter. Albertson's is now selling the some of the nitrogen-packed stuff. Uggh!

You know, if 4+ years in ABQ, I am ashamed to say that I never patronized a John Brooks. That is competely my shortcoming.

Given this news, especially given the lack of Raley's now and the news of Shur Fine / Savings at JB's, if I am successful at making it back to the Duke City, I will be checking out JB's!!

Wish I could collect some royalties for that jingle,
I am with you on Shur Savings. Heck, if any store up here in the frozen mid-upper north (44 degree at 4:30pm on May 3...and that isn't even too bad for here! ) sold Shur Savings, I will be all over those yellow boxes/cans!!

Don't feel bad, EnjoyEP. Many years ago I decided to move from Dallas to "home", where my mom lives. I realized how bad I hated living in my "hometown" when I noticed that I was rushing home in time for "Dallas" so I could watch the skyline scenes in the opening credits and was spending more time figuring out where in town the episode was filmed than what the characters were up to.

Dang. This thread has me wanting to go browse in Trader Joe's, crowd or not.
