  1. With that store closing they will still have another two stores within a half mile on Brentwood…..

  2. Was in Aldi yesterday and even they are now selling one of those “mattress in a box” foam mattresses. Just way too much competition

    • No doubt. These stores have been sprouting up like weeds over the last decade. About time for an industry shake out. Same will happen to urgent cares in a few years.
