The Boyd and Stations buying out virtually all competition in the local market trend can't be good for consumers

I agree. The Palms ceased to be a good value for locals years ago, so the news doesn't bother me that much.

You think that Stations keeps it as the Palms? Pretty solid brand I think, maybe I am wrong.

I predict they will leave the name the same. The main change will be that they will go to the Stations player card.

I was actually thinking that all this consolidation has got to be horrible for AP's.

ABSOLUTELY.

You need different places to come up with different marketing ideas.

5 different places might make 5 simular mistakes if it's ran by 5 different corporations.


5 places ran by one corporation will not usually make the same mistakes.
