Exclamation Niggers Run Last Grocery Store Out Of Detroit.

Ok, you antis reading VNN. Paying real close attention to this and WHY the stores leave or won't go in to Detroit...You know its bad when even WalMart won't open a store in Detroit.

Quote:
Grocery closings hit Detroit hard

City shoppers' choices dwindle as last big chain leaves

Joel J. Smith and Nathan Hurst / The Detroit News

National chains stay away from Detroit
.................................................. ...................................
Here are some reasons cited by national retail experts on why brand supermarket chains avoid Detroit:

Net profits at supermarkets run 1-5 percent of revenue. If shoplifting by customers and employees runs 7-8 percent, the store is doomed to lose money.

High cost of maintaining security for the stores, something most suburban locations don't need. Shopping carts often disappear, at a cost of $300 per cart.

Personal safety for employees, with robberies, thefts and assaults both inside and outside the stores.

Difficulty finding qualified managers willing to run Detroit stores. Most prefer the suburban locations.

Problems seeking qualified workers for the stores. It can be a major undertaking to find employees who can pass reading, writing and math tests along with credit, criminal background and drug tests. And there is a constant turnover of employees at stores in the city. "It's a human resource nightmare," said David J. Livingston, a supermarket expert from Wisconsin.

Declining population. No national chain wants to move into an area that is losing population.

Lower per-capita income. That means less expenditure on food.

Racism and discrimination accusations. If the store raises its prices because of higher costs of doing business, it is often charged with gouging the poor.

A well-publicized violent crime or armed robbery can cost the store 10 percent of its business. Three such crimes, experts say, and the store may as well close its doors.

DETROIT -- Colleen Rogers isn't looking forward to crossing the street to shop for even a few groceries.

The store, a locally owned market, is convenient, just steps away from the beauty shop where she works on Livernois in Detroit. But what troubles her is its higher prices, lack of variety and the low quality of fruit, vegetables, meats and other food -- staples Rogers could find every day in abundance at the Farmer Jack store near her home that is about to close.

"Sure, there's other grocery stores, but try finding something to eat in there," said the 34-year-old skin care specialist. "You can't buy quality food in the city anymore."

The lack of major grocery stores has long been a quality-of-life problem in Detroit and one reason some families don't want to live in the city. Now, however, the situation is getting worse as the last two Farmer Jack stores in the city prepare to close by Saturday.

If no grocery stores buy the Farmer Jack locations from the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co., Detroit will be left without a single national chain supermarket, much less a Wal-Mart or Meijer superstore or a Costco-style warehouse store.

Analysts say no other major city in America is such a supermarket desert. And it's not likely to change anytime soon.

Recent efforts by city officials, developers and community activists to woo a supermarket have been unsuccessful. Major grocery chains, which generally operate with thin profit margins, say doing business in Detroit is no-win situation. High employee turnover, cost of security and loss from theft are often cited. The city's comparably low income rates preclude selling an abundance of high-profit, upscale items.

The situation has left regular shoppers at the Farmer Jack stores -- one on East Jefferson and the other on Livernois at Seven Mile -- with two choices: drive the suburbs to shop if they have transportation, or buy groceries at smaller stores near their homes.

"Why should we have to go elsewhere to find a trustworthy store?" asked Joe Lanier, a longtime shopper of the Livernois Farmer Jack who owns a nearby business. "It's ridiculous you can't buy all the groceries you need in Detroit."

High cost of doing business

Within its 139 square miles, Detroit has 155 grocery stores, defined as various-size food markets with meat and produce. The city also has 1,000 convenience stores -- including gas stations and party stores -- that sell some type of food.

A 2003 University of Michigan study of Detroit supermarkets showed there were only five grocery stores in Detroit with over 20,000 square feet. The report concluded that the city could support 41 supermarkets with at least 40,000 square feet of space based on its population and spending habits.

Over the years, national chains have located in Detroit, only to pull up stakes and flee. There are a multitude of reasons, according to retail analysts, with the major deterrent being the high cost of doing business in the city.

"Sometimes even the people that live in the neighborhood don't feel safe shopping in the store," said David J. Livingston, a supermarket expert from Wisconsin. "They'll drive right past that Detroit store to go to a suburban store where they feel more comfortable."

While crime is a concern, Matt Allen, press secretary for Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, said the issue should not be used as an excuse by the big chains to avoid Detroit.

"In certain areas where the socioeconomic is probably at the lowest end of our society, there are a lot of desperate people," Allen said.

But, he added, businesses can take measures to prevent theft.

"(Businesses) have added lighting, changed the heights of the counters, put the registers in certain places -- security by environmental design. It all helps," he said.

Detroit also suffers from a lack of strip malls with tenants to serve everyday needs. Large supermarket chains don't like to open stand-alone stores, said Ken Dalto, a retail expert from Farmington Hills.

"Larger supermarkets have a better chance of surviving if they are located in strip malls where people can do one-stop shopping," Dalto said. "If you don't have these anchor spots at strip malls, you aren't going to get the large chain supermarkets."

A number of the city's major developers and economic growth officials said efforts to draw a national grocer to the city have met tepid responses.

Midtown Development President Robert Slattery said he showed a plan for a 12,000-square-foot store with 65 parking spaces to specialty grocer Trader Joe's, but the company didn't bite.

His company and Wayne State University are still working to lure a new market to Midtown.

Expired food is a problem

Most independent food stores in Detroit are owned and operated by Chaldeans, some of whom have been in business for 40 or more years. A few are owned by African-Americans.

Martin Manna, executive director of the Chaldean American Chamber of Commerce in Southfield, said Chaldeans have stepped in as A&P, Farmer Jack and Kroger have abandoned the city.

"There usually is a market within walking distance of nearly every area of Detroit," Manna said. "It might not be a supermarket. That might be why there are so many people eating potato chips rather than wholesome foods in Detroit."

Although shoppers may complain prices are higher at independent stores, independent grocers said they strive to be competitive, even with the high costs of running a store in the city.

While there are clean, well-run stores scattered throughout the city, many don't offer the variety and selection of a Farmer Jack.

Many residents rely on convenience stores for bread, milk, eggs and snacks. Small stores that do offer meat and produce often sell food past its expiration date, shoppers said. The city has raided stores over the years to crack down on sales of expired food, but many say the problem still persists.

Pat Hollins, an activist with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, told of stopping in a small neighborhood grocer several weeks ago and immediately finding two expired packages of breakfast sausage.

ACORN has been picketing stores it contends have been selling expired meats and unhealthy foods.

"We have problems with meat and produce being expired," Hollins said. "We have no security in the parking lots, no restrooms in the stores and a poor selection of food products. When you cross Eight Mile, these problems all disappear. The poor folks, who don't have transportation to the suburbs to shop, are being taken advantage of."

'Where's the justice in that?'

Without chain grocers in her neighborhood, shoppers like Cheryl Coleman, who lives just blocks from the Farmer Jack on East Jefferson, will have to travel much farther for low-priced sundries.

"I'm sure going to miss this store," Coleman said. "I got everything I need here, just everything. We need a good grocery store in the city, right here on Jefferson."

She said she'll probably end up shopping at a Kroger in Grosse Pointe. "It's either Kroger or the little local store," Coleman said. "And they don't always have everything I want."

Gordon Alexander, 52, who lives on the city's east side, said suburbanites have it good compared to Detroiters.

"There is only one store in the city I'll pick up some stuff at, but my kids jokingly call it the 'ghetto store' because everything is subpar," he said. "Some of these stores make the argument that they are catering to black clientele, so they have to make room to carry stuff like ham hocks and chitterlings, but that's just an excuse for bad quality.

"Here we are, trying to revitalize the waterfront and make this city whole again, but people who live here can't even find something decent to eat. Where's the justice in that?"

Niggers do this to themselves with TNB and then they scream and complain the usual "discrimination" or "racism" or who know what excuse they'll use - never to they look to themselves ... look for a Sharpton/Jackson march on city government to "demand" they put in large chain stores ...

Nogs then go to places like Dearborn to shop. The usual thieving goes on, but at least the police will do their part. There was a Kmart on Ford Road in Dearborn, near Detroit. Shoplifting was so rampant that the cops went there on a schedule, every two hours in order to pick them up. That Kmart had to close down.

Niggers destroy everything they touch, and jews force us to live in close proximity to them.

Thank you for posting this, I can't tell you how happy this news makes me. Eventually the niggers will invade the White suburban niggerball watching neighborhood grocery stores in droves and the Joe six packs will realize the niggers aren't so pretty in person.

Oh, and here's a true story about nigger managers. There is a dumpy little city called Hamtramck smack dab in the middle of Detroit. It used to be a nice Polish area, but most of them are gone, leaving a whole spectrum of muds.

At the Kroger's there, workers noticed a hole in the concrete wall and told the nigger manager about it. Well, the nigger is never concerned about tomorrow, only with his "muh dik". He kept putting off repairs until rats came in (The four legged type).

Well, you know how much food there is in a food store. It's a food store, after all. Lots of hiding spots behind and under all the boxes. Rats breed like crazy, and eventually the whole store was taken over by them. The whole place was a total write-off. Then management made a decision to "bomb" it with rat-killing gas.

Niggers and big stores just don't mix, and for this and other reasons, the store was closed.

Why would the niggers even give a shit? So long as the corner store has their malt liquor and KFC has their chicken, they're happy as pigs in shit.(which is essentially what they are anyways)

The same exact thing is happeningin Cincinnatti OH.

The Niggers are whining because the only grocery store (Aldi) in the Ghetto is closing its doors.

The store did everything to stay opened. It beefed up security, put video camras and so on.

Now the Savages are yellin racism. Because all they are left with convienent stores. The beast are also saying " weez can'ts gets no freesh vegiatables whis outs travling toos Keantucky".

" No's wanders weez niggas gots highs bloods preesurez ans heart tee tacz happenings alls over cincynati".

These niggers will spend $20 in gasoline driving out to the White areas to save 25 cents a pound on meat or bananas.

Niggers just don't want to admit they don't like being around other niggers.


They got expired meat in the neighborhood markets because the niggers just buy a bag of Doritos and a 40oz for dinner.

This is why I pay attention to Detroit so much. Here we have a city that was the Paris of the midwest, the freaking industrial capital of the nation, with neat architecture like the GAR building and in just a couple of decades niggers have managed to ruin it, make it look like Beirut in the 80s. Anyone who thinks niggers are even close to human needs to look at some of the photo sites on Detroit that are all over the internet.

BTW, you might find some of comments about this story and Detroit very interesting at the place where I found the story to begin with:
http://www.timebomb2000.com/vb/showthread.php?t=261157

A lot of former Detroiters commenting there. It would seem that a lot more people understand nigmentality than what we might think.

I think that WM4WL had some stories about niggers raping and nigging in the suburbs of late on his site:
http://detroitiscrap.blogspot.com/

Oh, and on my local AM station here in North Carolina they run ads several times a day asking businesses to consider relocating to Michigan.

@burnjewburn: LOL, they opened a new Aldi's in Hendersonville about two or three years ago. I guess they gave us the store that the niggers had. Oh, and that store is neat and clean though a lot of locals are not used to leaving deposits for carts and buying grocery bags. Never been robbed and I haven't heard any shoplifting reports on the scanner. Note that the mestizos don't shop there.

Oh, and for those of you that like your TNB live but from a safe distance, here is the link for the Detroit police and fire scanner feed. They don't use the old ten codes anymore. It is all in plain Ebonics.

How the hell do you pronounce the name of that place? It is tough for us down South to put 'ck' after an 'm'.

Look at that picture, they're bitching about the price they're paying for food yet they're driving a Lexus. Only in America can a retard nigger pay $4lb for pigs feet and drive it home in a $40,000 car.

I listened to it for about 30 seconds, and I heard, "We have a woman here high on crack damaging the BP gas station here."

LIVE TONIGHT! IT'S T.... N..... B!!!!!

Crack whores, car jackings, selling narcotics in the street blocking traffic, crawler in the basement, ...gas station already in progress

Everything I just listed, I heard in the space of 5 minutes.

:krofl That is pretty typical. I have been a scanner listener for years but not all that much goes on here so I thought where is a place with a lot of action and TNB. Then it hit me...Detroit. Googled a little and found this site. I have heard niggers firebombing homes, a dope dealer robbing people that didn't buy from him. All kinds of shit. Amazing the amount of crime that niggers can generate in five minutes, isn't it?

Back in the 90's, around 96' maybe 97' there was a real big storm that went through Highland Park, & nearby Hamtramck, (both cities inside the Detroit city limits, although H/P is way worse) as well as Grosse Point Park, where it finally went out onto the lake and died out.

Flame Baiter would remember this, there was major damage in those 2 cities, with Hamtramck hit the hardest. I think there was (1) death in GPP. (all White city)

I remember there was a medium size supermarket in Highland Park, the t.v. news people were there filming the local "niggas" cleaning the place out, it was like the whole neighborhood was there taking everything in site, a real TNB moment. I think the cops finally showed up after everything was gone.
