ALBERTSONS, EL PASO
It's a typical, American, quite large chain grocery story. Apart from food at economic price, I was looking for, it was interesting for me as foreign, first time visitor to the USA, to see where locals used to do daily food shopping and what they bought :-).
In my hometown in Poland (and probably in most of Europe) people do daily, casual shopping in little groceries and they often walk to do shopping (or stop on the way back home from work) while they drive to supermakets to do larger shopping say once a week. People hope to save some money in chain supermarkets. But, in reality they always buy more things there than they really need, you know what I mean ;-)
In the USA you have to drive to do even basic daily shopping because there are very few little groceries (general stores) located close to people's houses. It seems they are too expensive to maintain and give profits to their owners unless they start to specialize in something specific, unusual and not easy to find in a supermarket (say French or Swiss cheese store).
What to buy: Food including great choice (we don't have it in Europe) of Mexican food.
What to pay: Everything (well, except telephone cards and gas at gas station in front of store) is more or much more expensive than in Poland. However, as for the USA, prices are reasonable. For budget visitors: don't buy what you like to buy but buy what the Albertsons want to sell fast, I mean look for discounts.
