The ones in the Lafayette market are top notch.

you are nuts....there is absolutely NOT a Rouses in Black Castle. A Daigle's Supermarket, Cora-Texas, and a red-light maybe but not much else. The "new" Rouses in Houma on St. Charles beats the hell out of any Winn-Dixie or Albertsons in BR. I loved shopping at that Rouses when I lived there.

Guess its nothing special to me since my family has been shopping there for 30 years.

The Rouse's where your family shops is nothing like the one being planned for here.

I think Albertson's is ultimately the one that takes the beating.


For 60 days if you use the Lafayette model. Sales dropped an average of 12 % for the first 2 months Rouses opened. Sales returned + some once the honeymoon period was over.

I am pretty excited about this. I'll probably still be doing my regular shopping at Winn Dixie on Airline just because it is a little closer and just out of habit...but it will be nice to have a Rouses nearby to go pick up some specialty items.

Give me something close to help me zero in on exact location on Airline? I've been to the one in Lafayette several times to grab Canebrakes, and I'll hit one up here if it's not a CF getting there.

Next to the driving range. Not far from Kleinpeter's.

Was there another "lesser" store nearby that lost business?

and this is what is going to happen here as well .. for all the tongue bathing that calandro's gets around here .. i am not going to drive out of my way to the one on siegen or the one on government for exotic beer .. it will be the same here .. people will break their necks to get there for the first two months, then realize it is more expensive than their favorite local grocery and that they really didn't need those four $12.99 crawfish stuffed, white wine infused mushrooms from the deli either .. they will return to their old haunts to shop eventually ..

This looks pretty accurate, I was pissed the first couple months Rouse's opened on Bertrand because of how crowded it was. Now that it's calmed down I can enjoy it a lot more.

That is really the only reason I go to Calandros. Still will go if the rouses section doesn't have what I am looking for.

It will be a cluster frick for a while.

I can't afford to do regular grocery shopping at Calandro's. Higher than giraffe's...



Hopefully Alexander's or Rouses will be reasonable with prices.

rouse's is the same way .. they're not competitive with the chains at all ..
