The employees seem to have some incompetency or awareness of products sold in their market as well as some have a cultural behavior of generally showing rude and belittling behavior towards customers that ask questions about products that otherwise is not common, including those concerning things like high fructose corn syrup or other concerning food matters. Disappointedly, I've noticed several healthy beverage and some food items disappear, which increases the quantity of unhealthy food and drink items provided in the market. Generally I would prefer to eat and drink healthy products, but with regards to the incompetency and general culture of ignorance and not knowing something or anything about most or all of the products sold in the market, combined with the management of providing poor product choices (poor in terms of health, but maybe great in terms of profits and contributing to humans with increased risk of disease so as to perpetuate the pattern of continued profits both in markets and industrialization of inexpensively produced unhealthy foods) it seems that Smithfield News comp[liments quite well the growing trend of slumminess consuming most of downtown Pittsburgh with regards to the vast number of homeless, poor and violent cultured humans that reside or linger in or nearby the area.

Update: I found an old bottle of my favorite drink that used to be available at Smithfield News. It would've been awesome if they would continue to sell it, but they do not, due to claims of not selling enough of it. It was Real Thai Coffee Latte , a product of thailand, distributed by Taste Nirvana Int'l Inc ( http://tastenirvana.com/ ). It is one of the few seemingly healthy beverages remaining at the location that is not infested/compromised/contaminated with high fructose corn syrup.

What a great store and very clean. People are friendly and it's open 24 hours!! Coffee and espresso drinks hot and cold, fresh soups and salads and they just put in a deli! What I like most is there is always a police presence at all times of the day and night. Well done Smithfield News! I give you 5 out of 5 stars. - Kevin

This place chose to get into the Cigar business, yet they don't keep up with the cigars that are hot. We cigar smokers love the fact that this place is open late night, but the Nub made by Oliva cigar is the hottest cigar on the market, along with the Oliva V, and they don't have either. They might as well quit selling cigars if they aren't going to carry what people really want.

Everything you could need. Feels like New York City, the atomosphere is classic. Great selection of magazines, snacks, and news papers. Then out the door to the Smithfield street bridge.
