A recent survey of retail grocers in Oklahoma showed Wal-Mart
Supercenters and Wal-Mart Neighborhood Markets were in first and
second place, I forget which was which.

Albertson's was third. There are no Kroger stores in Oklahoma.

What is the "Federated" some have mentioned in connection with
Albertson's? The corporate name is Albertson's and they are based in
Boise, Idaho.

'Federated Department Stores'. I do not recall ever being in one
of them. PAT]
