Hundreds of people were on hand for the grand opening of Smith’s this morning.
Los Alamos resident Paula Olson was the first shopper in line, arriving at 6:30 a.m.
“It’s a beautiful store. A little chaotic at the moment,” Olson said. “I hope it goes well, I hope that everybody likes it, and I hope they keep the prices low. Because big stores get big heads.”
Olson especially loved the counter full of artisan breads and the selection in the housewares department.
In general, people were amazed at the size of the store and excited to see it open.
A resident who has lived here 40-plus years said, “I’m excited, but I can’t imagine putting something like this is a town like this. The town’s too small? Why are they doing it? They say it takes two hours just to get around the store.”
“I’m excited to be able to buy a bath towel in the county,” said one shopper who preferred to remain anonymous. “A bath towel and a lamp and car seats in the county.”
