I shopped primarily at Kroger in the 70s. It was the only large grocery store besides A & P. Both were pretty expensive. Mostly I could only purchase the weekly specials. Giant Food was the same way in the Washington, DC suburbs. I'm thankful for Walmart. I still don't do all my shopping at one store, but find many good deals at Walmart without needing a coupon.

We have 2 Safeways, 2 Albertson's, couples WMs and a Kroger owned grocery. When I lived in Krogerland, it wasn't always the cheapest; here it is on the staples, and Albertson's is pretty good on sale items. I mostly go to Safeway and WM for stuff only they carry. Don't need a card at Albertson's anymore, and the prices have actually got cheaper since then, I think. I always get their meat in the markdown section; it's $1-2 off a package and since it's going in the freezer anyway, who cares if it's at the pull date.

I'm thankful that we have great grocery store competition where we are now....2 Walmarts (with another coming in about a year), several Food Lions, and 3 Martin's which is part of the Giant Food family. When we lived in WV the nearest grocery store was a small IGA with very limited selection and very high prices. They thought they had captive shoppers. Even if I traveled 30 miles to a larger town, the larger stores there didn't have many bargains. I had to travel 50 miles to Winchester to have any real choice. Safeway which has left Winchester usually had higher prices except for their specials. Guess that's why they finally closed.
