The history of Smith's
Smith's was founded by Lorenzo J. Smith (Ren for short) in 1911 in Brigham City, Utah. Back then, it was just a small grocery store. In 1922, he replaced it with a larger store and in 1932 he changed the name to "Smith & Son's Market." His son joined the business and together they expanded it. Today, there are around 130 Smith's locations.
What is Smith's Marketplace?
If you live in the areas served by Smith's, then you might have seen a similarly branded store called Smith's Marketplace. These are a bit different from your average Smith's supermarket, so we're going to explain what the differnces are!
This is because Fred Meyer, a jewlery store, was merged by Kroger with Smith's operations. Five of their stores were converted to a new store called Smith's Marketplace. Other Fred Meyer stores were closed down (the locations in Sandy, West Valley City, and Odgen).
Today, the Smith's Marketplace stores have a combination of a complete grocery store, a pharmacy, lots of general merchandise, and a Fred Meyer's Jewelers location inside. Some of their larger locations include a huge seleciton of products, which includes not only groceries, pharamaceutical products, and jewelry by Fred Meyer, but also clothing and home decor items.
There are approximately 12 Smith's Marketplace locations.
