What we do is a little bit different, Castruita said. We build the store around the community. In addition to organic and natural produce, Hansons will offer craft beer and wine in about a month. The deli and coffee bar will open soon, and the cafe area will include raw juices, smoothies and kombucha on tap. Unique to the San Juan location will be an integrated pharmacy, opening in about seven months. Castruita said he wanted to offer pharmacy services due to the senior living community potentially being built next door.

Aereo files for bankruptcy after Supreme Court's killing blow | PCWorld
After shutting down two offices in a desperate attempt to save the company earlier in November, Aereo filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy on Friday. "We have traveled a long and challenging road...We feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to build something as meaningful and special as Aereo," company CEO and founder Chet Kanojia wrote in a blog post on Friday. Kanojia says bankruptcy will allow the company to "maximize the value of its business and assets without the extensive cost and distraction of defending drawn out litigation in several courts." Aereo's idea was simple: Warehouse a bunch of nickel-sized TV antennas and rent them out to people who wanted access to live over-the-air TV via the Internet. Aereo believed its use of technology and business model meant it wasn't a traditional cable provider and could thus avoid paying heavy fees to television broadcasters. The company was effectively killed in June when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the company was more or less a cable provider . Why this matters: Aereo wanted to set the cable industry on its head. At one point the company was expanding so rapidly that it seemed Aereo would outmaneuver its opponents and would ultimately succeed at delivering a live TV experience over the Internet nationwide. But the Supreme Court decision ended that ride. The death struggle between Aereo and broadcasters did prove one thing, however: If a (legal) cord-cutting revolution is going to come it will have to begin with the industry bigwigs. The revolution has begun After Aereo's loss in June, the dream of true cord cutting seemed farther away than ever.

The court made an incredibly wrong decision, but be that as it may, we cant appeal that decision anymore so its time to take next steps. TC: How do you think Aereo, its outcome as a company and in the Supreme Court, will affect the future of the TV industry and its disruption? CK: I think we played an integral role in bringing to the forefront the imbalances of the industry the Archaean business models, the lack of focus on consumer interest. I think we brought that dialogue even more attention. Once a day theres a story in the news about cord cutting. There is evidence that around 10 million households are internet only in the United States. We didnt create the phenomenon, but we rose to fill that opportunity. Its inevitable that well get there. Even now you can see CBS and HBO making moves in this direction, but those are just band aids.
