    A new video shows footage of civilians holding the terrorist to the floor and searching him for the knife. Later, police arrive and handcuff the suspect. In the video, civilians can be heard calling, "Where's the knife? Where's the knife? Where's the knife you, son of a wh***?" and "Did you call an ambulance?" The terrorist stabbed a 43-year-old man at a supermarket in the central city of Yavneh on Wednesday morning, just before noon. Police say the incident was a terror attack. United Hatzalah EMT Netanel Moyal said, "While I was at work near the location of the incident...

    A mystery baby-faced arsonist ignited four different fires inside a Brooklyn supermarket Monday night, police said. The suspect entered the Food Bazaar near Junius Street in Brownsville at around 6:15 p.m. and set four separate fires throughout the store while customers were inside, police said. Surveillance footage captured the brazen arsonist lighting a shelf of chips on fire and then casually skipping away. A store security guard uses a hose from the bakery to try to put the fire.
  • Inside Amazon’s robot-run supermarket that needs just 3 human workers

    NY Post ^ | Josh Kosman
    If you’re a robot stealing somebody’s job, it’s best to stay hidden. That’s what Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos appears to be thinking, as his Seattle-based web giant has contemplated a two-story, automated grocery store in which a staff of robots on the floor upstairs grabs and bags items for shoppers below. The ground level of the futuristic prototype — a supermarket-sized version of its recently unveiled “Amazon Go” convenience store, with a bigger layout that could span anywhere between 10,000 and 40,000 square feet — would be devoted to goods that shoppers typically like to touch, sources briefed on the...

    The first entirely vegan supermarket chain has filed for bankruptcy due to a lack of demand, according to reports on Monday. The chain Veganz, which shuns animal products, will close at least four of its nine of its branches after announcing its bankruptcy in December, Lebensmittelzeitung reported. Jan Bredack, the founder of the chain, told the paper: “The model of the vegan supermarket outstripped itself, because of the growing supply of vegan produce.” …

  • Albertsons to Buy Back 33 Stores It Sold as Part of Merger With Safeway

    WSJ ^ | Brent Kendall and Peg Brickley
    Grocery store chain Albertsons Cos. is buying back 33 stores the government required it to sell when it acquired rival Safeway Inc. earlier this year, a highly unusual development approved by a judge on Tuesday that highlights a misfire by U.S. antitrust enforcers. Little has gone according to plan since the Federal Trade Commission allowed the Albertsons-Safeway tie-up in January on the condition that the companies sell 168 stores to preserve competition in several Western states. Without the divestitures, Albertsons would be too dominant in 130 local markets, the FTC said when it agreed to a settlement with the merging...

    Business tycoon Rami Levy has denied reports that he joined a group of top Israeli businessmen in pressuring Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to make concessions to the Palestinian Authority (PA). Yediot Aharonot reported Monday that Levy, who owns the supermarket chain bearing his name, was part of a business owners’ group called Breaking the Impasse which has demanded that Netanyahu find a way to reach an agreement with the PA. “I’m not a part of that,” Levy told Arel Segel of Galei Yisrael radio. Levy explained that he did meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu – but that he supports Netanyahu’s...

    Supermarkets and newsagents are to be told to abolish checkout “guilt lanes” that tempt shoppers with sweets and treats. Public health minister Anna Soubry told the Mail cynical store layouts were creating problems for the parents of young children. “Retailers should make it easier for us to make the right choices, not harder,” she said. The Department of Health is drawing up an industry code of practice on the marketing of products high in fat, sugar and salt. It will call on stores to stop funneling customers past unhealthy products, end multi-buy deals on fattening food and spend a fixed...
