Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Corner Stores Disappear By JOHN CUNNII'F AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) The slorc-to-people ratio is falling sharply in the American mer- chandising world. In 1958 there was one retail store for every 9? Americans, By 1903, customers had to con- tent themselves with a ratio of one per 110. And now there is only one store for every 121 per- sons. The change is illustrated by the developmenl of larger de- partment and discount stores, supermarkets that sell many products that once were the sta- ples hardware or drug stores, and large drive-in restaurants in place-of "diners." Most noticeable by their de- clining numbers are the old mom-and-pop stores thai used lo sell groceries or candy or newspapers. Now their business lias been swallowed by larger units, many of them belonging to chain stores. The trend may also be de- lecleu, consumer affairs observ- ers say, by a decline in courte- sies and services arid personal atlenlions thai once were taken for granted. Larger unils don't encourage familiarity. Audits and Surveys, a large market research organization, keeps close watch on the trend and reports that the process of attrilioa is intensifying. Last year stores disappeared, bringing the five-year toll to Eetail units this year total says the organization compared with in 1969 and in 1905.

Get more out of life Take the family to a movie iunities lo buy goods, but Ihey mean there are fewer outlets to choose from. Gcncrtil mer- chandise stores offering vast ar- rays of goods show the greatest gains o[ all. The census shows there now arc full-line discount stores in the U.S., compared with in 19CG. In the same time the number department stores rose to from The biggest loser of any cate- gory is Ute food group, which suffered a fcss of stores in one year, wringing the total down to units. Super- markets are the reason. And the oldtime drag store, selling only medication and f robably ice cream, sodas and cosmetics, is in a slow but steady decline. The trend now is to fewer but larger stores with wider merchandise selections. The trend to bigness is not always accompanied by an in- crease in the number of sales personnel. Many of the new and larger stores rely on an increas- ing amount of self service, and not always successfully. Gas drillers fire after rig blowout OTTAWA (CP) Northern Affairs Minister Jean Chretien told the Commons here that the two gas drillers have been fired for drilling too deeply and causing a natural gas blowout at a rig on King Christian Is- land in Hie Northwest Territo- ries. Mr. Chretien said Pan Arctic Oils Ltd., of which the govern- ment is a major shareholder, was not negligent in its drilling operations, but the drilling crew had ignored instructions in go- ing beyond feet. Because of that the well has been blowing wild for about three weeks. Tire minister was asked about the blowout by Bud Orange (L Mr. Chretien said the gas strike is "a good one" and justi- fies the government's develop- ment policies in the North.
