Stater has never been quick on trends but they know how to move product and do volume. I don't think their prices are even that great anymore. But they have properly staffed and well stocked stores. They also seem to know how to keep stores open because they haven't closed even 1/10 the number of stores that Albertsons, Ralphs, and Vons have closed in SoCal over the past decade.

This is a good thing. All these stores are between 35 to 55 years old and in need of refreshing. I think most of these received their last updates in early 2000's.

I used to frequent the West Covina store. It seems more cramped than others. I haven't been there in months (its the second closest Staters to my house, but faster to get to than the closer of the two).

My Bakersfield co-worker drives all the way cross town to Stater Bros. there because Save Mart is gross, despite being near her home.

There was a time in 2002 I would have said to merge Stater and Save Mart together. It would have been a perfect merger of equals. Similar customer base, similar store format, similar pricing...

Somewhere along the way since then, Stater got a lot better, and Save Mart got a lot worse.
