We drove over to Blythe to do shopping. Our first stop was K-Mart where we picked up toiletries and other items that are usually less expensive there than at grocery stores. We noticed that the new grocery store next to K-Mart was finally opened (in what used to be a furniture store), so we went over there to complete our grocery shopping.

We found the store, Blythe Ranch Market, to be very nice...it has a great produce department and a full service meat case that was almost as long as the store is wide! The meat department seemed to be geared to the Hispanic population, with cuts of meats that one rarely, if ever, sees in most grocery stores (how does "Cow Lips" grab you?).

There were a few items that we couldn't find here, so we went to Albertsons to pick up the remaining few items. While walking around the store, I compared the prices on an assortment of items between the two stores...in all cases, we'd spent less at the Blythe Ranch Market than we would have spent at Albertsons. We'll definitely do our main shopping at the new store rather than at Albertsons!

Not ever having heard of Smart and Final, I had to look it up and found out it's a warehouse grocery store. Never knew it existed! While I'm not big on warehouse grocery stores, we'll check it out...thanks for the information.
