Letter To The Editor: Alternatives To Shopping At Smith’s Marketplace

We were thrilled when Kroger decided to invest in a beautiful Smith's Marketplace in Los Alamos.
 
We spend $8,000 a year there using our only credit card, a United Airlines Visa. We are on a fixed income and we count on the miles we earn at Smith's to be able to travel. However, Kroger has engaged in a childish game of brinkmanship with Visa over fees, and Smith's has now banned Visa credit cards.
 
We, along with many other Visa card holders are outraged at this brazen example of corporate arrogance.
