Let me see if I was selling a house and I owned a car that is parked in the garage and a buyer wants to buy the house but he is a little short on cash so he decide to sell my car and used the proceeds as part of money to buy my house.

Safeway owns the PDC and 49% of Casa Ley and Albertson is selling those assets to pay a portion of the purchase price.

I am voting no on this "buyout".

lemmy own a house that you wanna sell but somebody else has the deed?

now you want the deed so that you place your name on it...i'm not sure if that will cover you when it comes up for sale?

plus you don't wanna forget that if the house sells you only 13.5% of the interest + cost for all xeroxing.

be cautious...

I like the Albertson/safeway merger as long as they keep these Texas brands like tom thumbs or randols store and I can lose the rewards card if they keep the Lucerne brands
