Former Smith's locations in Arizona that never became Fry's

Post by TonyG »

I'm curious if there is a listing of former Smith's Food and Drug stores in Arizona that were never converted to the Fry's banner.

The only one I can think of is that store at 19th Ave. and Bell Rd. which sat vacant for several years before being converted to a Kohl's. I'm sure that there were others but I don't really know where.

Nice job Tony G! I'd like to know all of the former Smitty's locations, and what they currently are. You and I both know that the majority of them are Marketplace Stores now. The former store #8 at 83rd and Grand in Peoria is sitting abandoned, and the one that was located at 35th and Bethany is now a Walmart. What about some others? Thanks.. :)

Both Avondale and Scottsdale have the classic Smith's entrance.

26 East Baseline looks like a Smitty's (at least from aerial photographs). It even has the classic Smitty's "tiled" awning.
