Our grocery stores here aren't in real competition because they don't have to be. Due to our archaic liquor laws that don't allow wine and high-octane beer to be sold in the grocery stores, ones like Kroger just don't build here, so that helps keep the market uncompetitive. So far, the liquor lobby (and I suspect the grocery lobby) have been successful in keeping it this way.|
Albertson's and Homeland are gone (they were super high priced anyway), so we are basically left with WalMart, Food Pyramid and a locallly owned chain (Reasor's). Although the prices at Reasor's are somewhat higher than WalMart, I shop there as much as I can, preferring to spend my $$ at a local business.
