This branch of the regional Fred Meyer grocery/department store chain recently expanded their beer selection with the addition of a new beer cooler that is devoted exclusively to craft beer. This is probably in response to the store across the street ( http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/26408/view=beerfly ) remodeling and having a dedicated beer section. The other FM in town hasn't expanded their selection.

FM has always had a basic selection of local and regional craft beers, but now there is a 30 ft. open cooler with 6 & 12 packs and 22's, featuring local, regional and national craft brews. In addition over in the regular beer cooler there is a small, but decent, selection of imports.

FM's prices are generally the lowest of the bigger stores around, but this can vary due to specials. Overall, if you're going to a cook out or picnic, FM is one stop shopping. Clothes, grills, groceries and beer in one place. If you're just passing through this FM is right off I-5 and you can probably find something you haven't had before.
