Hope in Needles: Talks may save Bashas'
Full story: San Bernardino County Sun
Public monies should neer be used to sweeten a deal with a private business.It seems that cities have been taking the publics money for private endevours for too many years.Maybe it's time to let private businesses go belly up and those who need to be closer to a grocery store can relocate to a more populated area.Needles could be made into a nice retirement community instead of a drug infested welfare type town.
Save Basha's in Needles! Its the right thing to do!
Bashas' declared chapter 11 bankruptcy back on July 12, 2009, and immediately closed 10 under performing stores at the time. Since then they have closed additional stores in Arizona. They have 156 stores in Arizona and two stores outside of Arizona.
See the two links below for more detailed information on Bashas' status.
Albertson's (4th largest grocery chain) is trying to buy out Bashas (5th largest grocery chain) in what would amount, unfortunately, to a hostile takeover. Bashas is resisting at this time.
Also see the link immediately below which reveals that Bashas' filed suit against the United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) union.
The lawsuit names the UFCW and the union's operatives - including its false-front organization, "Hungry for Respect" - for defamation and intentionally interfering with the grocer's operations to extort an agreement for union representation.
I lived in the Valley of the Sun many years ago. Bashas was a family owned business started in 1932 and remains a family owned business today. When I lived in Arizona, Bashas had a very good reputation.
