Smith’s near Monopoly in Los Alamos

Dear Editor,

I have lived in Los Alamos since 1980. I have appreciated having a well-stocked supermarket in town. Before Smith’s bought out Safeway, we did have Ed’s Supermarket and some C-stores for some alternative.

When Smith’s arrived, especially after moving into Smith’s Marketplace and opening their gas station, things changed.

Ed’s went out of business. The gas station had low prices and drove most other stations out of business. We do have the Co-op but they tend to be pricier and without the selection that Smith’s has. I did notice that when they moved into the Marketplace that their selection of groceries was reduced.

Lately, I have noticed changes.

The gas station has raised its prices to the extent that it pays to buy gas off the hill when possible.

They have announced that they will no longer accept Visa cards so they can keep prices low. Prices seem to have gone up. I suspect it was to they could continue to pay their corporate managers salaries of 10’s of millions. It takes longer to checkout using a bank card.

They are having increased problems keeping their shelves stocked recently.
