I'm hearing rumors a few Shoprites in Connecticut might be up for sale. 2017 could be very interesting.

I wonder who'll buy them,  unless someone like Mott's come back.

There's always a chance that they would take them over as part of corporate (SRS as a Wakefern subsidiary).  They did that with most of the NY stores when Big V was thinking of leaving due to financial issues, just to ensure that they kept the business (and wholesale volume) of those stores.

Probably only as a last option if no one else was interested in them, though...?

Now, who wouldn't be interested in them?

They have yet to start building the one in Southington, CT. The last few months they've been working the land, putting in pipes, etc. This is going to be a part of a development including Chipotle and Chick Fil A. Now the owner of this developement is looking at redeveloping the adjacent former 7-Eleven and 2 houses (the last 2 on Queen Street) that he owns next to the former 7-Eleven.

Marc, Southington is getting an Aldi...? Cool...good stores...OBTW, you changed your name again?

Capital One has cancelled its planned buyout of Cabela's in-house credit operation, which will likely deep-six the deal

The local KMart in Temple Terrace, FL has a now hiring sign up. I wish Sears would sell KMart or spin it off...Sears needs to close lots of their stores and keep about 30 of their most profitable stores.

Interesting backstory about how the deal got done

Tim Horton's had a similar situation in CT. The buildings they owned, they wouldn't sell to DDs. Well, here in CT the only damn coffee chain left is DD, so there they sit. Empty. There are still, quite a few to this day, still sitting vacant. In prime locations, too.

What happened to Whole Donut? I loved the East Hartford, which was in the Comstock Building. I used to go there before work...

King's Restaurants, a local Pittsburgh diner chain (basically a Denny's clone)
suddenly and without warning closes 5 locations Sunday evening.

This included my mom's favorite location in Heidelberg, PA.
Such events can never indicate anything good is happening with the company.

How many locations do they have? Are they a franchises?

I had never seen them in Pittsburgh.

Turns out they have 4 locations around the fringes.
Washington and Butler, PA, Morgantown, WV, and St. Clairsville, OH.

There is actually a neighborhood in Pittsburgh called "Garfield", so having
one here might be a bit confusing to people.

I think the Garfield's restaurant chain went out of business!

This looks like the same chain?  About 15 locations listed currently, scattered from Pittsburgh area west to Missouri, with a couple outliers in Alabama and Mississippi.

Here's what I think what happened to Garfield's, maybe they closed the bulk of the corporate-owned restaurants and some franchise owner(s) kept a few Garfield's Restaurants open.

You pronounce it Puh-Ree-Zhin. Purezhin. Parisian.

What about "Par-E-San"?
That would be incorrect. You are also quoting a post that is over a decade old.
Sorry, I was just trying to revive an old thread that is still relevant to this day to bring it back to life!
