I think they need to offload the "food" portion of Game as well... Makro sort of gets it mostly right, but Game is just totally out of its depth by including food.
I thought they were supposed to offload it sometime back. I remember reading about it......... obviously never happened.

I think Game shut down it's fresh food division months ago.
