Pay Less Super Markets is a chain of seven supermarkets located in the central Indiana towns of Anderson, Lafayette and West Lafayette.

History[edit]

Location in West Lafayette

The company was founded by H.J. Contos in 1947 in Anderson, Indiana.[1] In 1960, a second store was opened in Lafayette, Indiana.[1] Contos died in 1961, and the company was taken over by his son, Larry D Contos.[1] The company was acquired by The Kroger Company in the 1999.[1] Kroger today continues to operate the Pay Less banner under its Central division, which includes Owen's Market, and Scott's Food & Pharmacy.

In July 2017, Kroger announced plans to convert two former Marsh Supermarkets in Muncie that it had just purchased from the bankrupt company to the Pay Less brand.[2]
