    one other thing. itys AMAZING to me that KITTY LITTER is MORE expensive than apple juice!!!. what are you peeps DOING with that stuff?
    one other comment . your EGG PRICES are the same. but its cheaper ifI buy them by the ” flat” 30 eggs” only 4 buck a flat. but overall the prices are very little differnt.

  3. Yes, it’s true that food prices are not so bad as people expect.

    And you can still get everything year-round!

    So beware COMPLAINERS who live here. 🙂

    Thanks for reading as always!

    well, i am proud to read this information, i am from smithers, for twenty years, loved smithers, a good place to begin a new life, as i did, saw the show with bill connelly, and the tours he made thru the north, very interesting,,

    another thought, years ago, i would drive to stewart -hyeder to purchase products as the grocery stores in smithers were expensive, so made a day of visiting the stewart hyder small backyard store, the driver would drive his truck to seattle and back and still groceries were cheaper than smithers, not complaing, just stating a fact, the fruitman doesn’t overcharge for the groceries, he sells, and drives all the way to no-mans’ land, what a very simple life to have,
