No insider info for me but this wouldn't surprise me at all. I recently went to Dahls on E.P. True and it was a ghost town in there. Their prices were pretty steep as well even when compared to other similar stores like Hy Vee
I've only really ever been to the one in Ames, but it's a **** hole and nobody is ever there. Their store brands are awful and they're super expensive on everything, even more than Hy-Vee I think. Only reason I ever go there is because I'm either too lazy to go to Aldi or it's Sunday and Fareway is closed.
I participate in a pool league and I've gotten to know a couple of guys on the league that are night managers at Dahl's. Both have said they are actively trying to get new jobs before Dahl's closes down. So I am thinking this is going to happen soon.
I want to say i remember someone on another board saying something about a possible buyout of dahls by Kroger several months ago. If its closing maybe that was something they were seeking because they were near going under
The two closest grocery stores to my neighborhood are both Dahl's and I HATE shopping there. Unless it's picking up something quick on my way home from work I'll drive further out to the Hy-Vee, but I really wish I had a closer option. I would be excited if a less ****** chain ending up buying them out or swooping in to those locations after Dahl's goes out of business.
