I highly doubt that FDR would move Starwood where they print payment cards. Office consolidation from Aksarben would be more likely if they are relocating.

Re: Cabela's - World's Foremost Outfitter

It's not unusual for companies to maintain two brands for several years after an acquisition, and then merge the two. There are also companies like Kroger who will run purchased stores under the old name, but you can tell from private label products, etc, that it's a Kroger store.
