NAPLES, FL-More gasoline stations are selling groceries, so now grocery stores are fighting back. A new 63,315-sf Albertson’s supermarket in northern Collier County 100 miles west of Miami, the chain’s third in the area, will be the first here to sell gas.

The first Albertson’s Express opened in Idaho in 1997. The stations typically include six to eight fueling stations and an adjoining 1,500-sf convenience store.
