Didn’t Take Long

July 20th, 2007

Last month, Farmer Jack grocery stores closed a bunch of Michigan locations. Then they sold 23 of them – 20 to Kroger and a handful more to local chain, Hollywood Markets (HM should update their website to reflect the new stores, which have been open for 10 days now).

As I was walking out the door this morning, I heard the TV-voice say something about a congressional inquiry as to why Kroger didn’t buy any of the Detroit-proper Farmer Jack stores, which also closed. I’m not sure what the point of such grandstanding is – I suppose it’s in their defective nature to huff-and-puff about things which are entirely outside their jurisdiction and comprehension.

I’m unable to find any stories verifying this, at the moment, but I’ll follow up ASAP.
