RALEY'S HISTORY BOOK 
 

Rory, above in the short YouTube video from the movie "The Words," had a conscience.  The people at Raley's didn't and they did everything they could to keep Charles Nordby from getting justice.  If you get an opportunity,
watch this movie. It's an excellent movie.

Please note:  When Joyce Raley Teel, Jim Teel and Chuck Collings published Raley's history book in 1989,
they were defaming and defrauding Charles Nordby.

The image below is from Charles Nordby's book titled "Raley's Exposed! Who On Earth Saved Raley's?"

This is from Nordby's Raley's Exposed book.

What do you get when frauds are given the task to write a book? Answer: A fraudulent book!

Below is basically a bunch of lies from a bunch of liars.

These three guys were knuckle-heads in the '70s and evolved into the Holy Trinity in 1989.

Instead of Joyce, Jim and Chucky writing a history book and taking everybody on a phony ride, they should have just gone down to Southern California and experienced a much better, put together fantasy.  In fact, it would have been more fitting for Raley's to have offered their history book free to Disneyland patrons than to have offered it free as a Christmas gift to Raley's employees.

You have to wonder how many other historical facts a person learns over the course of their lives where the facts weren't facts at all.  It wouldn't be surprising at all to find out that most "history books" read in American public schools are more fiction than fact!

The opinion below was published in the Sacramento Bee.  If you think of how stupid the people are involving themselves in "hazing," wait until you get ahold of how "stupid" the people are who put this Raley's histoy book together which is featured further down on this page.   I think Joyce, Chucky and Jimmy would have been better at "doing hazing" than "doing history."

PAGES FROM RALEY'S FRAUDULENT HISTORY BOOK 

In 1989, The same people who defrauded Charles Nordby in the 70's were now given the task of writing Raley's history. That year, Raley's published a history book called "Raley's, A Family Store."   In 1991, Raley's presented this book as a Christmas gift to all of their store employees.  However, Raley's failed to inform their employees that the history book they had published was inaccurate, misleading and had all the elements of fraud written throughout it.   Unfortunately for Raley's employees, history repeated itself, and they too were defrauded.

It is not surprising to realize Raley's history book was so poorly put together.  Their stores in 1973 were so mismanaged, that had Charles Collings been working for another supermarket in the same capacity as he was with Raley's, he certainly would have been fired.  This man was one of the most inept executives in charge of a supermarket chain that Nordby had ever encountered in his career. 

Collings had no clue on how to operate a supermarket.  Collings had no clue on how to operate a bookkeeping department.  It's not difficult to see why Collings defrauded Mr. Nordby in 1973-76.  Can you imagine being the president of a chain of grocery stores and having very little understanding of being a buyer, inventory control, receiving, invoicing, allowances, pricing, backroom procedures, loss prevention?  And this list can go on and on.

This was a chain of stores in 1973 that was going bankrupt and would have gone bankrupt in 1974 had Raley's not hired Nordby.  Where would Jim Teel  be working in 1974?  Could he have used his talents at the Eagle Thrifty stores of Nevada and turn them around before they too went bankrupt?  He had a job at Raley's solely because his father in law (Tom Raley) was the owner. 

Contact Teel at raleys.com and ask him some questions.  Ask him what viable experience he had in the grocery business where he could go out with another conman (Charles Collings) who didn't have any experience in the grocery business, and buy a chain of stores in Nevada called "Eagle Thrifty" that was losing money?  Ask him why most of Raley's suppliers were stealing from Raley's in 1973?  Ask him why Raley's  pricing was so bad?  Raley's, in 1973, had the highest shelf prices of any of their competitors?  Ask Jim why Raley's customer service was practically non existent?  Ask Tee;\l where the hell Tom Raley was in 1973 when he and his two (2) buddies hired Charles Nordby? 

Did Tom Raley ever wonder about the security windows that were placed up on the walls at the Raley stores?  Did Raley think the security windows were actually mirrors for his shoppers to be able to notice that their hair needed to be combed?  Click here to view Nordby's security window with a message.

Below are photos of Raley individuals. Plus, there are a couple of pages with photos of Raley's Christmas party taken from Charles Nordby book "Raley Exposed."

 Below represents pages from Raley's fraudulent history book:

A book written by pathological liars.  This image represents the mural depicting Raley's life.  Nowhere on this mural does it appear to represent Raley's purchase of the Eagle Thrifty chain of stores.  This was the big gamble that made Raley a millionaire several times over....shouldn't this major event in Raley's life have been depicted within this mural?
Raley did it all.  He even was able to close his eyes in 1973 while 80% of his suppliers, dozens of employees and thousands of shoplifters were stealing him blind.

It was the birth of this fraudulent history book that brought forth the hidden truth about Charles Nordby and how he saved this deceitful chain of stores from going bankrupt in the '70s.
 


Below, Collings states "tell our story,
but don't build an altar."  This is 
exactly what Collings did.

Collings wanted to tell their story but instead built an altar for himself. That is what he had all along planned!

This is the page showing where Chuck Colling, Jim and Joyce Raley Teel commissioned this book and spent many hours reading and rereading copy for historical content

Below Raley says it took him five years to learn the grocery business.  Well it
appears he didn't learn much because in 1973, his stores were filthy, he had a
number of incompetent men running his company, 80% of his suppliers were stealing
from him and Raley's had the 
highest prices in all of Sacramento.

Tom Raley, himself, created "The Tom Raley Lie" when he advertised
his store in Placerville as the nations first drive-in market.  Click on the
page image below to view a chain of stores that probably had
drive-in markets long before Raley.

It wasn't true about Raley's store in Placerville being the first drive-in market. Click on this image and see stores that probably had a drive-in market long before Raley.

Click on the image below to read where Raley, himself, said his profit
for the first year in Placerville was only $500.  Now that seems more
feasible...When Charles Nordby detected fraud on Raley's invoicing, sometimes
the dishonesty was done where a number was added to the front of
the figure and that would increase the value of the number.  It appears
Raley's was using that same technique in its history book.

Check out this page.  Raley's history book stated Raley earned $4,500 the first year. If Raley's profits were so great there in Placerville, why did he leave this pot of gold after his store burned down in 1943?

Above it states that Raley earned a profit of $4,500 for the first year.  Yet below,
Raley's monthly magazine stated from Raley himself he earned $500
the first year back in 1935. Collings and Joyce had to fabricate this fact too.

Well Raley wasn't making much of a profit in 1973 when Nordby discovered
suppliers charging hundreds of dollars more for a case of hams as seen below:

This page is from Nordby's book Raley's Exposed.

What happened to Raley's first store in Placerville.  According to Raley's history book,
it burned down in 1942.  Click on the image below and read the May 5, 1943 article. 
1943 was the year this store burnt down.

This page says Raley's first store in Placerville burned down in 1942. Sorry Joyce, but it was 1943-you should have known that.

Kind of funny.  Raley said he planned to open back up in temporary quarters as soon as possible, but didn't.  He left Placerville and the high profits he earned there yearly and opened up stores in Sacramento.  I wonder if this fire was an arson? You know Raley didn't return to Placerville for over 20 years. This fire had arson written all over it!

Raley indicated that they are good boys.  They were fraud boys.

Below represents "The Boys."  Nordby said Teel and Collings were
the two stupidest men he ever ran into running a chain of grocery stores. 
Running it into the ground!

Collings probably could even con the devil.


Read Collings' statement above:  The Bible commands Christians
to be "as shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves."  Yeah, Collings
interpreted this as to mean, when you are made to look incompetent
then you need to commit a fraud and then make your incompetence
disappear in a history book you help commission.
 

 

Nordby said Teel and Collings were a joke as far as being grocery store executives.

Below is when the best was yet to be.  Click on the photo below...

Not too long after Nordby was hired, Raley's discontinued their stamp program -
a program in which Tom Raley said months earlier was Raley's 
"point of difference."  He also said the stamps added slightly to the cost
of the groceries, but because housewives wanted them, he gave them..

Below is showing a picture of Tom Raley with his 3rd wife Dotti.  Raley's
didn't mention Raley's second wife Joan.  Why would a woman marry an
85-year-old man in poor health?  Would she have married Raley had he
been penniless living in a nursery home?  I don't think so.  Was this marriage
set up only because of the eventual Raley history book in the future? 

I mean, if he doesn't get remarried again, and when his life is recounted
in Raley's history book, do they lie and state that Raley never remarried after his
marriage to Claire and avoid mentioning his marriage to Joan in 1973?  Well,
after he got married to Dotti, Raley's history book can show he was married to
Claire and then at age 85 got remarried to Dotti and conveniently omit from 
the history book his marriage to 2nd wife Joan, as seen below in a court document:

Raley's history book completely overlooks Raley's marriage to Joan...

RALEY'S AD MAN FRANK MCMINN 

Click on the image below to read an email from John DeMario's son.

Keith Tronson 

So below it states that Tom Raley hired Keith Tronson after the Eagle Thrifty purchase, but the smartest man ever in the grocery business didn't know who Charles Nordby was when Nordby was hired in 1973.  This entire history book is full of lies and
Collings and the Teel's know it.


RALEY'S MIRACLE MART 

Collings said above nobody in the Miracle Marts stores knew what anybody else was doing.  That is exactly what was happening in the Raley's stores when Charles Nordby was hired in 1973. 

Collings also said above that Raley's lost $2 million on the Miracle Marts alone in 1963.  Check out this news article below where you can see how Raley and Collings filed a lawsuit against a man to try and recover some of their huge Miracle Marts losses...They were just "looking" for money...

wilRaley and Collings were nothing more than just big ass con artists.

So Raley, decides to buy a chain of stores in Nevada losing money after his memories of the Miracle Marts.  If there ever was a "hall of fame" for "grocery frauds" Collings and Raley would have certainly been inducted into that.

RALEY'S HISTORY BOOK - EAGLE THRIFTY STORES 

Above it states that Raley had no intention of plundering Eagle Thrifty's assets in order to generate some quick cash.  That statement is probably true because it was Collings and Teel whose intention was to plunder Eagle Thrifty's assets in order to generate some quick cash.  If Raley didn't know about Charles Nordby, why would he have known about this chain of stores being purchased?

The Eagle Thrifty purchase was nothing more than Collings and Teel trying to find some quick cash to keep the CA Raley's stores afloat.

This picture is from Raley's history book.

The above picture was used for the ad Raley's ran in Nevada-as seen below:

Below is what this ad states:

Joyce had a real good memory of her dad too.
