Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm wondering how my local mart is reacting to the data that is pouring in now that we have Costco.  Many items are more than 20% cheaper at the new big box than at safeway (a slightly smaller box).  And the service is better so "loyalty" is out the window.

I do know our gas stations are starting to squeal.  At first with Costco at $2.79 they were still holding to $3.09.  Not anymore.  Down to 2.89 and fading.  6-8 big high speed fueling stations has to be really taking a big market share.
