Well, Boscov's filed for bankruptcy last summer.

As far as other supermarket chains, Wegman's would be a great choice.

My wife would love to see Mandees and Joyce Leslie in Charlotte. I liked Steve and Barry's (too bad their gone). I was just up in NY and H&M isn't cheap anymore! I wouldn't mind a Pastosa's Ravioli shop.

I read an article a while back about Kroger buying most of the Atlanta Harris Teeter locations when they pulled out of the Atlanta market. I guess I "mis-remembered" the details...

Default I second that!

Yes! I said Wawa's...I meant WaWa! They are the greatest...

Sheetz would be good...

And put me down for Publix, too!

Why won't WaWa come down here?

Heard a commercail the other day on the radio that reminded me of a WaWa commercial...

(sigh...)

It really is a wonder why there isn't a Wawa already here. There's a stretch on route 37 from Toms River to around Medford where there's more Wawa's than Dunkin' Donuts (which is pretty amazing for those not familiar with the profileration of DD's in New Jersey). Whenever I've passed them by, each of them always has cars in the lot. Keep in mind that's just on one stretch of highway, not counting the ones nearby on a different stretch of road. The ones with the gas stations had the cheaper gas prices and always did well.

With the amount of New Jerseyans who have migrated here, it's amazing they haven't put a few down in this area. There's some weird love from a lot of us towards those Wawa's. I'd go out of my way to stop in one if they dropped 'em here.

They seem to be following 95 south, & have gotten to where 85 & 95 meet. Since all WaWas are company owned (that's how they maintain the quality) I guess we just have to wait (or take a roadtrip to VA to get to one).

I did see, on their website, that people who want their coffee can order it to brew at home.
