Fry's Marketplace

Fry

Fry's Marketplace started out as Smitty's, Arizona's first multi-department store. Smitty's was similar to a Wal-Mart Supercenter and even had a food court with four branded fast food options (such as Taco Bell). In 1996, Smitty's merged with Smith's Food and Drug Centers. In 1997, after the Fred Meyer–Smith's merger, Fred Meyer updated and revitalized the Smitty's concept and in January 1999, all Smitty's stores were renamed Fred Meyer. During this time, management of the chain changed from Smith's Food and Drug to Fred Meyer. Construction also started on a full sized Fred Meyer store in Phoenix.

at more than one location i got a call or an e-mail to say that i would maybe consider coming in later at my convenience as a delay was forecasted; or, could there be a better item that could fulfill my earlier choice? in one substitution i originally requested Jif peanut butter and ended up with a 3x larger organic house brand peanut butter that cost less as Jif was out. of course Frys did not charge me for the sub peanut butter as a matter of principle. it was a surprise that was shocking. today a team member called three hours ahead of pickup window to request and inform if i would come later as i might have to wait due to unforeseen other guest in my same time window havin requests. i was relieved as i had made a commitment to deliver a donation to a clothing center and wanted to walk it which would take longer and make me force Frys to wait. so great they are about communication. the point is by walking the clothing it was cleaner than if i had taken street or enclosed transportation and i got exercise. very specific to today and to me but thats why i like frys. bc everyday frys seems to be the grocer that is not a struggle.
