The article asserts that Albertson's Southwest division will have difficulty penetrating the retail market given the competition it faces from Fry's Food Stores, Wal-Mart, Bashas' and Safeway, in 2006. According to retail consultant Bob Millsap, while Albertson's occupies some good real estate in the market, it lacks positioning in local consumers' share of mind. While much of this can be attributed to poor retailing, it's also due to the abundance of other strong retailers in the market.
