Smith's Food and Drug History

Smith’s Food & Drug was founded in 1911 by Lorenzo Smith, who opened a dry goods store in Brigham City, Utah. The company moved into larger quarters across the street, but it wasn’t until Lorenzo’s son, Dee, took over the business after serving in WWII, did the business really begin to expand.

The operates a chain of full-service grocery stores in Tennessee, the  Southwest and Northwestern parts of the US. Currently, there are more than 132 locations. The company was acquired first by Fred Meyer, then by Kroger in 1999 for $8 billion. This made Kroger the largest supermarket chain in the US.

Since 2008, Smith’s Food & Drug has been opening Smith’s Marketplace stores, often by purchasing locations that have gone bankrupt and then remodeling the stores with upgraded fixtures. Company headquarters remain in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Smiths Grocery store at 80 Acoma Blvd. is very inconvenient now. Not only have they decided not to be a 24 hours store, they have decided long before they close (at 1 am) it is appropriate to shut down all the registers and let the customer do all of their own checking and bagging. Some people work later than others and don’t feel like using the tiny little carousel self check out system when they have a HUGE amount of groceries to buy. Obviously when you see a customer with a full cart at 11:30 pm a decent person would think to open up a check stand and help that customer, not at this store. They like to watch you suffer through their automatic checkout system….cheap skates! You lack in service now that you want computers to do the work humans should be doing! What a nightmare. I have been going there for 20+ years and I am DONE shopping there!

Have a question, why are the sale items so differently priced. Example Blue Moon in Henderson…ON Eastern $ 12.99 on sale

On Jones or Decatur zip code area 89103. $15.99 on sale.

I have to agree with my neighbors. Conditions at the Smith’s at 850 Rancho have deteriorated tremendously. Parking has ALWAYS been a nightmare. There are never any carts, long lines and frequently products are not on the shelves, poor produce and recently we had bread go moldy only a few days after we purchased it. It’s a mess. I may be changing my local Smith’s where I have shopped for over 20 years. Walmart here I come.

My address is XX cole younger, Edgewood, nm 87015 tel505281-XXXX We asked the city of edgewood to clean the north parking lot of smiths which has become a city dump. The management Elizabeth, marta, marcos are all very rude making comments like ” have you cleaned up your yard lately.” Bring back martin please he always kept the front heaters on in the starbucks which you own now they do not work, the management simply is rude, and arrogant. The fence belongs to you the dump site is the responsibility of edgewood. the fence is trashed and ugly please clean it up or I will never shop there again Walmart is next door. They keep their place clean. The community will be there the 8th and 9th to help with the clean up it will look very bad on your part if that fence is not repaired. tell your management to do something about their attitude of ingratitude, they are too hateful and ungrateful for words even the employees talk dirty about them.

I was back by the meat dept. and the store with my service dog clearly written on her vest, and he tell’s me they don’t allow service dogs to be wild, when my dog was right by my side walking calmly,he of course had to repeat himself four times, I told him I wasn’t stupid, I only needed to hear it once because I was not stupid, I knew how to listen, unlike John the store director, I called the store and guess what it was John and he denied everything, told me it was his store and he didn’t care to listen to me, claimed he wasn’t rude, which he was very rude, told me he didn’t care if I called corporate, claiming they wouldn’t care, I called corporate talked to a very nice man named Gregg and he took a report and said they would review it and get back to me about the incident. so we’ll see if they care or not.

01/30/2019 I was physically attacked inside Smith’s store with the help of a manager and security guard. A woman hitting me and ramming a cart into me and they kept me in a corner like they were helping her. They never called police, and refused to help me. They told customers if she shots the white B, get down. All like it was a game. I am twice the age of my attacker and I am disabled. I work as a shopper and I spend 1000’s each week at the Smith’s on Tropicana and Jones in Las Vegas. This is the 2nd time this woman attacked me only the 1st was verbal 7 months ago. But their employees attack other employees verbally in front of customers and managers laugh and reward it. I am shocked that a Kroger Store allows such blatant racism to be practiced. It is sick and will be reported to police and the news. I am saddened by this deeply

How can get brands at Smiths that Kroger has ??
Would like to see Allen Green Beans, shredded velvetta cheese and Blue Bell Ice cream along with some other things. Also Kroger offers Senior Day which Smith does not. I live in Park City Utah and Smith employees are never helpful.

I have been shopping at the Smiths on 450 N. Nellis Blvd. in las Vegas, NV for years. I recently started going too the Smiths on Sahara Ave and Nellis Blvd. Why? Because the staff are so much more friendly and helpful. Everyone has a smile for you and a good morning or hello can I help you? The one at 450 N. Nellis are a so unfriendly, no one smiles or wants to help. Very rude, in every department. Now today, all my prescriptions are at the 450 Nellis store. Has been for years. The pharmacist are the friendliest helpful people I know. Jae is wonderful. I will miss her. I went in at 4:37pm and waited in line. I was next. A man walked up next to me and asked if I was in line? I said yes, I am next. Karyn I do believe her name is took he other man first. I said I must be invisible. The man finished and he said he was sorry. I said she must think your cuter than me but then again she always treats me like this. I always have problems with her. Karyn says I have never waited on you before. I have never seen you before. I told her yes you have and you always do things like this to me. She repeats I have never seen you. I told her I have been coming here for years and you always give me problems. She tossed everything down and told her boss Jae to wait on me. Then she said “its because she is black! Yes I said it!” So I said its because I am Hispanic. I told Jae I was sorry but I have to switch stores. I am tired of her treatment. And I will miss her. I paid and looked for the Store Manager. I told him the whole story. He did the like the black part at all! I received a phone call about 90 minutes later. It was Jae the pharmacy manager. She was so sorry that she wanted to call me. And that Karyn wanted to talk to me. I told her NO, I do not want to speak to her I am eating dinner and I do not want to get upset again. My feeling? The store manager made them call. Jae I know was sorry, she is as I said wonderful. But they, the store manager and Jae had to tell Karyn to apologize

sandygoldich@ yahoo.com. I was recently at your store on Maryland Parkway. You guys are having a sale on All detergent but this store has been out of it since the sale started. I was there this morning and saw 6 bottles. So I grabbed them and went to check out gave my coupons to the checker at self check out and she said “No Way am I taking those coupons”!!!! I said I’m in this store everyday. I mean everyday and your Not taking my coupon that I have. I use coupons a lot ( not always in your store ). But that’s ridiculous cuz your Store Coupon is not the same coupon I have. There’s a lot of grocery stores in the area. I can go to !!!! I’m a very loyal customer but I’ll change that real quick if I can’t use coupons.

I routinely shop at Smith’s in Reno, NV, but I have had extreme trouble with following the charges as they are added up during checkout. Your computer set up puts all the discounts at the end of the transaction and one cannot follow if the proper discounts are being given. It is impossible to follow this at the check out and I am forced to go to customer service if there is a mistake. I want to partake in your promotions but it is hardly worth the time and effort to jump through all the hoops in order to get the special prices. It is more time effective to go to Walmart. Please try to streamline your promos and make them user friendly and print the receipts so that the price charged is what is shown rather than all the discounts which cannot be deciphered.

Hi. I actually am looking for information – I live in Fallon, Nevada, and there are many rumors floating that you are putting a Smith’s Food and Drug here. Can you tell me if that is actually happening or not? It would make a lot of us very, very happy.

Thank you.
