Untitled[edit]

This article lists among the "defunct" Loblaws banners as being Lucky Dollar and Shop Easy. I live in an area served by one of the few remaining Super Valu stores in western Canada, and occasionally they'll have inserts in their flyer that make reference to Lucky Dollar and Shop Easy. While the Loblaws website and annual reports don't mention these retailer groups specifically, I'm pretty sure they still exist in small numbers. 205.250.144.123 (talk) 04:54, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Validity of Controversy section

I am not aware of municipalities having the power to bar businesses from operating under certain names. I question the validity of the statements made in the Controversy section. 209.202.75.14 (talk) 13:27, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Branding[edit]

I have recently noticed some Loblaws stores (in the GTA) being rebranded "Loblaw SuperStore" and not Real Canadian SuperStore. Is this a new brand? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ergosteur (talkcontribs) 03:35, 20 July 2008 (UTC)


yes in Some Real Candian Superstores in Ontario are being renamed Loblaw Real Canadian Superstore —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.224.42.232 (talk) 06:31, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

look at these links

http://www.superstore.ca/ontario/Default.aspx the first link has the loblaw name on it

http://www.superstore.ca/west/Default.aspx the second link is from out west

and the company has decided to keep it as real Canadian Superstore name out west


and in Ontario all Rcss are being renamed Lrcss

Use of the word Banner[edit]

Banners is used in the wrong sense here. In Loblaws terms it is associated with store branding, so Loblaw banners includes all stores owned or associated with Loblaws. This would include Fortinos, No Frills and the other 500 names, not just Loblaw. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.196.173.205 (talk) 06:20, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

The article is already using the word in that context. What specifically do you want to change? --A Knight Who Says Ni (talk) 01:31, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Biased language[edit]

 The following statement was used without quotations, uses first person language and appears to be the opinion of the writer:
 " In the early days when I started the cash and carry business, I was told that it could not be done, but my contention was that the people of Toronto and Ontario would welcome the opportunity to carry their groceries home, providing I could offer them higher qualities at a much lower price than they were used to paying.[5]"

The cited link also seems very suspicious. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.148.112.235 (talk) 15:19, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
