Any Chance of Splitting Chains into Chains and Markets/Stores?

Trader Joe's threads are overrunning the Chains board. I count 19 food store threads (believe it or not there are other places to buy food), on the 1st page. Any chance of splitting out food store threads onto a separate board?

If it's not warranted, no sweat. Just a thought.

  1. Looking over the first page of Chains, the balance between food store and restaurant chain threads is about even, though there are more posts in the Trader Joe's and Costco threads. Is any of this a problem? Not for me. I wouldn't mind if the chain restaurant threads were split off into their own board (I never read them), but it wouldn't make any real difference to me, and I don't see what purpose it would serve..

    1. I've run this idea up the flagpole before but nobody saluted. Actually it doesn't seem to be as bad as it used to be; many of the Trader Joe's and Costco threads have been consolidated into the yea/nay category. Some of it will die down after the holidays.
