Grocers just can’t compete with Amazon/Whole Foods & Publix.

It's more that too many of this type flooded our market too quickly. Something had to give.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Niche grocery markets are having a hard time competing. Just way too many if you think about it. Once Kroger pulled out of Lucky’s last year, it was on life support until they couldnt operate no more.

We saw last year Native Sun close its doors.

The Daily Record is reporting that Native Sun will reopen in Jax Beach.

Having a restaurant/cafe competent should improve margins.

Lucky's, Earthfare, and Sprouts are facsimiles, change my mind.
