LETTER: Proposed grocery merger would hurt seniors, the low-income

I’m writing to say I am definitely worried about the merger between Kroger and Albertsons (Tuesday Review-Journal editorial). I live in Pahrump and our Walmart superstore and the aforementioned stores are the only choices we have. If Kroger buys out Albertsons and closes our current store, I really believe it’s going to hurt our community. I wish this buyout wouldn’t happen, as I do believe we won’t get competitive pricing. There are so many senior and low-income families relying on healthy competition.

LETTER: Supermarket merger will hurt the poor

Higher prices will result. Poor families will still pay a higher price for food because Alber-Krog will still control the distribution of food.
