At least with Plenti, you can cash your awards in at the store. If you have a balance, use it before early July.

The release talked about there potentially being other gas stations added. It wouldn't surprise me to see them try to team up with Spinx again in this area. Though the rewards program is the least of BiLos problem. Pretty much every other grocery chain in this area is doing just fine without one.

Some Spinx stations carry the Shell banner. Regardless what banner Spinx has, its prices are high.

I am content fueling at Ingle's Gas Express.

I was thinking the same thing...why is Bi-Lo adding this extra cost of a rewards program that really doesn't motivate people to shop there. Low prices, fresh food, clean stores, good help is what motivates people to shop at your stores.

Kroger's Mid-Atlantic Division is exiting North Carolina. Fourteen stores are affected. Eight stores are transferring to Harris Teeter. One store is being divested to Food Lion. Five stores are closing outright.

Kroger's Atlanta Division has twelve stores in South Carolina:
  • Aiken County: 2 stores
  • Beaufort County: 2 stores
  • Horry County: 4 stores
  • Lexington County: 1 store
  • Richland County: 3 stores
I would not be surprised to see Kroger's Atlanta Division reduce its footprint to Aiken and Beaufort counties. I have heard speculation Harris Teeter is planning a re-entry into Columbia.

We were just at the one in Hilton head as we are every year when we go down and as usual it was packed because of all the tourists. I have to assume that's one of their best performing stores

Kroger's Atlanta Division has stores in Chatham, Columbia, Effingham, and Richmond counties in Georgia. Strongholds in those markets are why I doubt Kroger will exit Aiken and Beaufort counties.
